What are you on about?

The E8400 is an excellent CPU, 3.8Ghz is very good and you have a GTX 260, great job on the build.

Can't wait till I rebuild my rig this month and check out the benchmarks.

It just seems slugish to me though . Could that be how my wire managing is though you think? Also, should I attempt to OC my graphics card any, never have tried that before and this was the FIRST processor I've OC'd, so I feel good somewhat.

If I run sideless 24/7, would it hurt to OC my memory, gpu, cpu (more) or no? I wanna see if I can push my CPU to 4.0ghz or higher, think I can?

Well I currently have my CPU OC'd to 3.4Ghz but will be reaching that 4Ghz on watercooling in the next week or so.

I have also overclocked my memory and it has helped a lot, you can try and give your GPU a little overclock with Rivatuner, there's a lot of tutorials out there for it, so Google what you need to find out.

Go for the 4Ghz, a lot of people are doing it, btw what cooling do you have?

It's the standard stock cooler LOL. I'm surprised it's handled 3.8ghz this well though, but I do run sideless though.

O wow, I would really recommend buying an aftermarket cooler, get a Xigmatek HDT-S1283, around $15/$20

It require thermal paste to put on or no? I </3 thermal paste lols.

I may just rebuild this computer, I rushed on building it and cables are everywhere, I'm just worried of breaking something taking it apart

Well turn everything off and disconnect the power, take everything out carefully and place it on an anti static bag to be safe.

Reqire your whole case so the cables are hidden, it will take a few hours.

If you do buy a new cooler you will need to clean the CPU off with some rubbing alcohol and then apply some new paste, you can use Arctic Silver 5, spread it on and place the cooler.

I'll need to place the CPU in the socket first though correct, before I put the cooler on it?

I just may do that soon, I'm bored lols.

Of course you do, how else are you going to cool the CPU, make sure the cooler fits your case though, there's a lot of coolers around so have a look around newegg, be careful though some aren't that good.

I meant that little metal thing that covers the CPU, that needs to be down first or what? Probably does, I'm just blah right now.
