Re: Asus Striker Extreme or EVGA 122-CK-NF68-AR
Been reading with interest and yes I'm a noob (ish anyway), but I've took the plunge and bought the parts for my new PC and I am interested in any advice for how to set up the memory/FSB for optimum performance. This is my first time with an Intel CPU since my 386.
Anyway, parts purchased are :-
Asus Striker Extreme, Intel Quad Core QX6700, Corsair Dominator Twin2X2048-8888C4DF, Thermaltake Tai-Chi Case with Water-cooling, Enermax Galaxy 1000W PSU, 2 X BFG 8800GTX OC2 768MB, 2 X Western Digital Raptor 150GB, Hitachi Deskstar T7K500 500GB, Samsung SM-226BW 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor
I realise I've probably made a few dodgy choices, but it's too late now and hopefully nothing is too bad, I certainly hope not for the ammount of money it has cost.
Do I overclock? Do I need to? What settings to get the best out of my Memory/CPU combination? What are safe voltages to push to? (this is always something that worries me)
Any advice or comments are welcome.
