Hello, I want to start off by saying what a great community you guys(and girls) have here. I just built my first computer and found tech forums a great help in doing so. I posted here a month or so ago asking for help on advise on hardware and found everyone helpful and honest. As I started to build it I had a few questions, so I just jumped on here and did a search for the info I needed and i was here. I was a little nervous about the build, but I got it done and it fired right up and is working fine.Thanks so much for the help!
The specs of my new rig are:
Intel Core2 Duo e8400 3.0 Ghz
EVGA 8800GTS (G92)
Crucial Ballistix (2x1GB)DDR2 800 (PC26400)
OZC StealthXStream 600watt PSU
CooolerMaster TX2 CPU cooler
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 SATA HDD
Antec 900 case
Samsung 20X DVD Burner SATA
the question I have is.. when I have CPUZ up it says the CPU core seed is 2000MHz. My easy tuner says its 2999. what gives?
I havent changed anything in BIOS except the voltage for the RAM wich is rated for 2.2 volts, so I bumped it up to that. Is one of these programs giving me the wrong info. If so how do I correct it? I want to get all I can out of this setup, so Ive thought about OCing it a little maybe. Any Advice? Thanks in advance for the help.
