I have just completed this new build and would appreciate a few links that
can step-by-step me towards a nice performance overclock of the cpu & RAM.
SILVERSTONE TJ-03 w/ 2-80mm fans, 2-120mm fans, 1-92mm fan
SILVERSTONE SST-ST60F 600W modular
ABIT AN8 Ultra
Athlon64 4000+ SanDiego
THERMALRIGHT XP-90 w/ 92mm Panaflow
OCZ Platinum 2GB (2 x 1GB) 2-3-2-5 @ 2.6V (model OCZ4002048ELDCPE-K)
eVGA EVGA GF 7800GTX
Seagate 7000.8 300GB SATA HDD
Plextor PX-716SA/SW / ASUS 16x DVD ROM
X-FI Platinum w/ Klipsch 5.1's
XP Pro SP2
I have all the drivers for every device updated and running smooth. Super
system. Just looking to get it to a stable 3.0Ghz if it's possible. (at
least 2.8Ghz for FX 57-ish performance). I designed the aircooling/fan
placement mod myself with the best chassis I have ever used teamed with a
XP-90, superior wireing job and modular PSU - - - cpu-z puts CPU at 24C
after a 5 hour online UT2004 fragfest. All suggestions would be
appreciated. Thanks in advance

i accept a oc test setup if it will run prime for at least 4hours (24h better)
