Re: First time OCer and heatsink
Sorry, I know this thread may be over and done with, but I'm in the same boat as ratzlaff, an OC'ing beginner. I'll be getting my i7 build soon, and I'd like to OC my 920 to 3.2 GHZ. I'm prepared to get the Thermalright, but getting that $40 Aftermarket sounds way more appealing, especially since 3.2 is almost doable on the stock heatsink (not for me though).
For the OC'ing software, I guess I'll get Intel Burntest or Prime95, and Coretemp or speedfan.
3.2 GHZ is a relatively low OC for the 920, right? I'm thinking I'll be safe with a decent aftermarket cooler, and with a voltage a little more than high enough to prevent stability issues.
And sorry guys, I think I just hijacked a thread!
