    Beginners guide to OC'ong?

    Hey I'm very interested in the technique and theory behind OCing. But an easy button sure would take off a lot of pressure

    Beginners guide to OC'ong?

    Thanks so much for the help but I have a question. Does anyone actually use a multimeter when OCing? I know the Asus Rampage II Extreme has special contact points just for using a multimeter but is it really neccesary or is it ok to trust your software to tell you what your temps & voltages are?

    Is there anyway to know how much voltage is too much before you actually try it? And what does "relax" the timings mean?
  4. I was thinking about the Rampage II also. I've never built a rig and I've certainly never OC'ed before. I thought a board with the most features would be the easiest to learn on. Am I right? Anyway, I saw a video on YouTube and it's got me considering other options. In the video, a guy installs a Rampage II into an Antec Twelve Hundred and it BARELY fits. He has to bend his SATA cables under the motherboard in order to get them through the tray. Isn't that bad for the cables? Not every case even has that many holes to lead cables through. Also, other people have said that when they install two graphics cards, they block other PCI slots. Can anyone verify this?Asus Rampage II Extreme & Antec 1200 video
  5. In order to benefit from USB 3 and SATA 3 on a motherboard, wouldn't you need devices that were also USB 3 and SATA 3? For exampe, I have an portable USB 1.0 hard drive. I know it would still work with a USB 3.0 but it won't be any faster right? I'm also trying to build a PC for gaming.
