Windows 7: OverClocking :D

OverClocking :D

OK, so I've had my PC for about a year now, and i only recently learned about overclocking. :O

So! I researched a little and it didn't help me because i wanted to know how to get the maximum overclocking for my processor, and i'm just going up little by little till i get it to at least 4GHz.

I am beasting right now at 3.8GHz running smoothly as ever and a CPU temp of 31 C idle, and 52 C full load. I only have stock CPU fan in and 1 case fan. o.O I'm still amazed at how i get it running at such a low temp for me. Lowest I've seen it was at 29 C with no overclocking, and that was back at 2.8GHz.

So I've only posted this thread to talk about overclocking status and how all of you are doing on your overclocks, or if you haven't heard about it yet, then Google it. :]

For those gamer types, I run Crysis at Ultra High settings at around 25-30 FPS with a resolution of 1680x1050, No AA.

Well, lets get too it!

Start replying and posting your overclockings.
