  1. hiya all, I'm new to this forum and have some (noooooob) questions. I've recently built a new machine and was wanting to OC. Please excuse my noobiness as i haven't done this before. My first question, is the "Smart 6" application that comes with the Gigabyte mobos any good? It has turbo modes which can take the CPU from 2.8 (stock), 2.94 "faster" , 3.15 "turbo" or 3.80 "twinturbo" if i use these settings is everything done or do i still need to go into the BIOS?? I understand that i would need a better CPU cooler than the stock that comes with the CPU. I've read a few guides on overclocking and was just woundering if a program like smart6 was the answer as apposed to oc'ing though the BIOS, which is better???? here are my specs, any input is apprecicated, MOBO - GIGABYTE P55A-UD5 CPU - i7-860 MEM - 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws PC16000 DDDR3 2000 GPU - my old 8800GT (soon to be GTX480) CASE - Thermaltake Armor+ MX PSU - Thermaltake EVO Blue 750w HDD - Seagate 1TB cheers
