Overclocking tutorials?

Postby p455w0rd » Thu Dec 06, 2012 1:37 pm

Okay, so far I've only messed with overclocking gpu via Catalyst Control Center (ATi GUI)...even then..really no clue what I'm doing. So, I just wanna ask where you guys learned what you know and I wanna know what the possbilities are...Like afaik, CPUs, GPUs, RAM, and SSDs can all be overclocked...what are some good tutos on each? Am I missing other things that can be overclocked?

Googel and That link will gave you.

Watch how far you overclock just because you can reach a extreme overclock don't always mean better performance, even if your temps are in the safe zone........example this processor at 4Ghz is the sweet spot. Between 4Ghz and 4.5 at least on water-cooling there is not so much of a gain as there is between 3.5 and 4Ghz in real world apps just extra heat and wear.

This holds true with your GPU Watch your benchmarks and you decide wheather going so far is worth the strain and ware on the components or backing back a bit is better to run in real world apps just not benchmarks.

my gpu (ati) is overclockable..but it overheats too easy..it's a little underclocked atm..CPUs are intel LGA771 in a dell case with proprietary BIOS..not overclockable (bus speed/voltages/anything to do with OC'ing is locked..FUCK DELL ASSHOLES)...and there are no 'hacked' bioses for this (be it hardware or software)...they're extreme cpus (so they're capable-in fact made to be OC'ed)...but shitty mobo/bios..oh well..they'll last longer anyway...will make a nice server machine one day..either way this machine rocks my cock
