Default new build


I never stop tweeeking my computer so I suppose OC'ing is something I might like to do.

I would not want to push it to far, only so far as I can without upping voltages. I suppose upping voltages would mean more heat? and more noise?

I want it to be cool and quiet but if I can eek a bit more performance out of it (and keep things stable) then I'm down with that.

And, would you say that OC'ing is best done on a new build before any programs or personal data is on the hdd?

Could you possible point me in the right direction as to learning the basics?

I pick stuff up in the forums but its all indirect. I will obviously google it, but if anyone has a good link; great.

Sorry if this should be in another thread at this point.

thanks again for replies,
