Overclocking (newbie)

Postby KuyaJun » Sun May 27, 2012 8:37 am

Just upgraded from a i7 950 to an i7 980X...ive heard and seen a lot overclocking talks...but never really tried it. Had 4 Alienwares
before and my 1st build is a i7 950 using a Corsair Water cooling system. But now that I have Koolance on a i7 980X, I'm considering
overclocking...just need a little knowledge before proceeding....

Thanks. I watched Linus on YouTube..got it running at 4.0Ghz in 2 minutes. There maybe a
better set-up where you said i'd look...so i will.
