Great thread. I'm figuring on one last run with my 3 year old socket 939 rig before the next major upgrade comes about.

AG, please stay within shouting distance, lol.

pumpitup,

first thing you'll want to do is read this excellent guide. then read it again.

once you think most of that has sunk in time to head over to the socket939 Overclocking Database and search out some rigs with hardware like yours. take a look at the settings and that will give you a baseline.

the socket939 Overclocking database can be found here;

Nice motherboard pumpitup, The best 939 board imho.:angel:

Do as wevs says, read up and do your homework, find a starting point, I like to get things stable @ stock speeds first, and then when/if you need some help we will be here for you.
Have fun.
