I just bought a ThermalTake Big Typhoon heatsink/fan and now I plan to overclock my E2180 2.0GHz that is currently OC to 2.9GHz a little further to about 3.4GHz'ish.
I have a Gigabyte P-35 Mobo and have been told that it should be stable at 3.4GHz. Also...I changed some setting on my Ram when I originally overclocked my rig...and when I got my Big Typhoon I also got two more 1GB stick of OCZ Platinum ram. I am gonna post some screen shots from cpuz so you can see what I have done.
^ all 4 slots have 1 GB sticks of the same ram in them...and all have the same numbers in the SPD.
I have a ATI Radeon HD 3850 Vid card.
I appreciate any help I can get...I went to PM the guy who helped me months ago and found I wasnt allowed to PM anymore. And since I dont really know too much of what I am doing and am kinda new to all this I figured asking for help was better than screwing things up.
If anyone sees anything else that I could do to improve my system performance in the cpuz images that would be greatly appreciated. Like OC my Vid Card or Ram or something...I am using this computer to play Age of Conan when it comes out in a week...so any juice I can get outta it would help that much more.
thanks alot everyone!
any questions you have I will answer as soon as I can.
