Will try OC to CPU to 4.4GHz as this looks like an 'easy' OC but if members think that's a bad idea will change to...

So I guess you could say I'm asking two questions :)
1. Would you recommend any different parts
2. Is the 4.4GHz OC achievable and worth the extra £50

Thanks.

  1. No gurus set my mind at rest?

    Don't want another recurrence of a few years when I bought a new rig and PSU had wrong connectors, Doh!

    Cheers.
  2. Getting a 4.4 OC is part of the CPU lottery - think you have a reasonable shot. I got 4.4 stable with an Evo as well but backed it off since there doesn't seem to be a need for 4.4 at present.

    Think that looks like a very reasonable system.
