So i've built a new computer and am looking at overclocking it soon, but i have no idea how to do it :(
is there a guide somewhere, or would using the AI SUITE II overclocking do a good job?
if i don't include something needed please post and i'll update it :)
ASUS P8z77-v pro motherboard
corsair H80 watercooling
also can graphic cards be OC'd?
gigabyte 7970 GHz edition (1000mhz stock clock)
700W power supply.
What FPS whould i be running with current setup, no OCing?
Not sure of the software. Never used the stuff. I tend to distrust software-based CPU overclocking, but it's probably perfectly fine. Check it out, maybe watch Youtube videos on it first.
If you choose to go BIOS overclocking, follow
. It's for a different motherboard (previous gen chipset) but the process should be very similar, if not nearly identical to yours. It's from Asus, and their overclocking tends to be straightforward and the same for all boards. Refer to your motherboard's manual for additional features/options not outlined here, and Google for supplements in the case that you can't find an option mentioned in that guide (for instance it may have been renamed).
As for GPUs, they're much simpler. Download MSI's AfterBurner software. There are tones of guides floating around, but it's also pretty damn easy to use to begin with. You should get a respectable overclock right off the bat, and a few Youtube guides can give you pointers for squeezing more out. The whole process is a lot more straightforward, and has more failsafes built in (to prevent, for instance, applying too much voltage).
thankyou very much :)
Your FPS should be well over 60 (With V-sync turned off, and possibly shadows turned down), as my FX-4300 and somewhat-screwy HD 7950 manages ~40 fps with everything including shadows maxed out.
