Thread: New to OC-ing, need help w/processor & RAM

    Default New to OC-ing, need help w/processor & RAM

    hi all,

    I hope you don't pass me over because I'm a newb, and am asking things that have been asked before.

    I just upgraded/rebuilt my PC, and would appreciate some guidance on some *moderate* overclocking (i.e. best OC without resorting to liquid cooling). I'm just starting to grasp OC-ing the processor, but if I understand correctly, RAM performance/speed hinges on what the CPU settings are. I want to 'tweak' the best combined performance out of both without frying anything.

    Perhaps a few of you out there might have the components I used:

    Mobo: Gigabyte GA-MA790X-GS4
    CPU: AMD 64x2 5000+ Black Ed.
    RAM: G.Skill 4GB (2x2GB) DDR1066
    Video: VisionTek Radeon HD3650 1GB
    - All in a 7-yr.-old Antec full-tower case
    - Powered by a ThermalTake ToughPower 750W PSU

    I am beginning to understand the (performance) BIOS settings separately, but need more help with the basics, plus understanding the relationship of CPU and RAM settings, voltages, etc.

    I realize there may be some great info on this site, but I just found it today. I'll be scouring it for info while I post this thread.

    Whatever info you need from me, ask away . . . any and all constructive comments and guidance greatly appreciated!

    cheers,
    - Dave G.
