well most overclockers dont care about screwing things up so maybe you might want to consider whether or not your prepared to burn something.. your knowledge is what will save you in the end from burning stuff. no REAL ovreclocker is gonna come in here and give you a bunch of settings to try.. you need to do the research and try stuff out for your self.. google is a wonderful tool.


my rig



24/7 useage.



this is my Corsair Dominator 2x2gig xms2 cdf 4096



no one taught me how to get results like this or made a guide for me. i found guides on the net im not saying there isn't guides. look for them, forums are a good way to find out tips and tricks.. good luck dude..

i wanted proper correct settings because i do not overclock and want best performance from my mrs pc when i play crysis as its a bit slow !!!! i dont care about frying anything or breaking anything , if i ooverclocked it , i might overclock it and it runs shatterrrrrrrrrrrrrrr than it possibly could be hence why i wanted a proper ENTHUSIAST who knew what he was doin more than me , to give me true performance oof her pc .

when i got my i7 and 4870x2 and overclocked it was top notch speeds , but fact was i seen someone with exact same spec as me , and was clockin far far more than i was , THATS WHY I WANTED AN ENTHUSIAST to tell me hopefully show me the jedi force !! its like why take ur car to a backstreet garage he knows basics , u take it to someone who specialises in that car !!


so i thought why i was here gettin an rma for my ddr3 for my own board id check out if someone got the setup or the formula with all these mad extra trick bits on clockin i dont know about



like u said forums are best ways to find out tips and tricks , heres 1

why run a 9800gx2

with a 1400 screen res ?
