Default Re: Overclocking Safe?

definately need a cpu cooler , no retail cooler. (+- 40 $)

then you need some special paste: liquid silver called = arctic silver 5 (7$)

some extra fans in front and in back (best 12mm to keep the noice down)

and that would be a good base (not the best imho) for starting to overclock

cheers (look at my sig to see what you can do even with a prescott)

I think you mean 120mm 12mm would be an extrermly small fan, lol!

Read the sticky at the top, it tells you a lot you need to know about overclocking.
