I have OCed my computer to stable at 2.6 currently and don't really feel like I can go higher because of heating issues. It idles around 37C at the highest it ever gets at max load is 50C. I am on stock heatsink/fan.
I was wondering if I took my stock heatsink/fan out and put some arctic silver 5 on would that allow me to OC much more?
I am basically broke with a $0 budget but I would like to OC more if possible. If anyone has any ideas let me know. Check my sig for my Computer info. Also I currently have another gig of the same ram on its way from New Egg. I was thinking that with 2 gigs I will not be able to reach my current OC so I wanted to get the CPU higher so that a memory divider with my ram wouldn't effect things too much.
I realize I am still a nub at computer hardware and OCing
so all info is greatly apprciated. Also if anyone can give me some good tips on what my cheap azz valueselect ram timings should be at please let me know.
My computer wouldn't work with any memory divider set yet works well when OCed to 240 htt with a 1:1 ratio. With my next gig of ram though I highly doubt that will work for me any more so I was hoping to set a memory divider and I have heard that people have had similar issues due to their ram timings. Thanks all
