Ok, this is my first time overclocking anything when it comes to
components. However, I built this computer to be overclocked
(This is why I
bought water cooling). I chose this water cooler because
of a review I read on

Anyway, I was wanting to "safely" overclock my processor and my ram. I
safely in quotation marks because I understand that there really is
no safe
overclock. Anyway my system specs are in my drop down. I was
wanting to
overclock from 2.4GHz to around 3.0GHz.

My Bios verison is.... 12DC1-NVISTA-100R for INTEL Ver. 1.0

Please help

Also Gigabyte made a program called EasyTune5 2007.03.09 to overclock
updating bios setting from windows. Should I use this program to
overclock or
just manually goto bios?

Re: Want to overclock my new build! (I'm new)

Thats nice........but your post on this group does not show your "drop down"
so we have no idea of what your working with..or against....
I have a Gigabyte N650Sli DS4 with an Inel Core2Duo 6420 and some lovely
Patriot DDR2 Ram.I tried the EasyTune program and did not like the results.
I have this board running at 8x400FSB with the Ram manually synced on Air
Cooling ..a Thermalright HR=01 with a 120mm Fan. Runs cool and quiet.
Passed 8 hour Orthos test and the temps stayed below 57.
So please describe what hardware you have
