New to Overclocking
I've been wanting to overclock my CPU for a little while but in all honesty am not sure how exactly to go about doing it. I've read a few things about it but haven't been able to find a very good guide for going about doing it. Also I am not really sure what speed I can aim for while keeping my CPU safe from overheating. As far as cooling goes I am just using air at the moment. I'm using the V6 by Cooler Master and my case is the HAF-X 942. I have not added any extra fans to the case only those that came with the case. My current CPU is the Intel i7 950 @ 3.06Ghz. Finally my mobo is the Asus Sabertooth X58.
Basically I guess I am just looking for anyone that has experience overclocking this CPU or one similar with the same or similar cooling equipment. And what were you able to safely overclock to? Finally some good guides that you would recommend on overclocking.
Thanks in advance all.
