    Overclocking

    Sorry guys, I'm sure there are hundreds of threads about this. I have searched and there literally are hundreds but I just wanted to ask if anyone had any links of threads or websites which go through overclocking for noobs.

    Also, are there any programmes which can tell me the various temps of my machine without having to go into bios? As obviously this would help in my attempts to over clock.

    You can check out my specs <<< there. Just wanting to up it a touch before building my new machine.

    Once again apologies for this thread, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    motherboard monitor was pretty good for temps and such as long as your motherboard is supported as I think the program developerment has ceased for some time (I have a weird one that gets reported wrongly ... unless it really is over 350 degC in there! ) gigabyte should be fine.

    Apparently, motherboard sensors aren't all that accurate - the real temperatures could be a considerable way off, both higher and lower.

    at least you get a ballpark figure though so you have a reasonable idea if it's in the 30-50 region or the 50-70 region

    I actually just subscribed to Custom PC. I got the Mobo issue as my first one, I only intended on using the 3 months but it's a fantastic mag, I'm going to keep my subscription.

    I also signed up for Computer Buyer, I will not be keeping my subscription!

    Thanks for the tip .
