Touch the outer casing of your PSU. (And don't wear wool socks :P)

Yeah, I do it in my room, which is carpeted. I just try to not move too much.

Slaymate or Mindovermaster, would you consider this a good guide to follow for ocing my cpu? Found it on a video.

<--- A video by NCIX Linus Tech Tips, how's that? He uses my motherboard, which is perfect, quite exciting he got it 4.0 easily, and I only want a 3.6 overclock . Using my research I have done, his cpu ratio is 14.0 * 286 Bus Frequency is roughly ~4ghz, so I would have to find something that equals 3.6, he made it seem so simple!

Pictures ftw! ~~~ I will be uploading them slowly, (I really want to know of a batch picture uploader :/)


Ripjaws your great and all, but jeez sometimes your jaws are pretty darn scary for big coolers.








Now off to OC this baby to 3.6, I'll report back in a few minutes. And btw there's a nice small difference in speeds with opening programs from 4GB Ram --> 8GB Ram, I noticed I can open a game, chrome, and skype, within ~20 seconds of the computer starting, that would take near a minute or so on the 4GB ram, just though I'd share.

edit: Success! It's running at 3.6 atm, running prime95 for stabability. Although, I have 1 problem, in my computer on system properties it still reflects 2.8, is that normal? CPU-ID and HW Monitor etc.. and Prime are reporting 3.6.

AFAIK, system properties will always show the stock clock.

Grats on 3.6GHz

Thanks, I can push it to 4.0 with this cooler (seen it personally) but seeing as it's fine where it is I'm fine. I noticed a ~15 fps boost in crowded areas in games.

Thanks to all you guys again on the tech forums!
