Hey all, love the forum so far and just built myself a new computer a few weeks ago.
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4Ghz (no idea is its G0 or B3 (?))
Corsair XMS2 2GB DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel RAM
WD Raptor 150GB 10,000RPM HD
ASUS P5K-E LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Motherboard
Corsair 450W Power Supply
EVGA 8800GTS SSC 640MB 320-bit GDDR3 Video Card
Vista Ultimate (32b)
The computer is great. Everything runs well, except Crysis at max resolution settings for my 24" monitor (that was all resolved in my other thread, though.)
Question: I've been using RivaTuner and Everest to check out some stuff about my computer. From what it looks like, my temperatures are the following for the computer:
On my computer case LCD, the temps are shown as:
I don't think I have a need to overclock my graphics card YET, since it is flawlessly running almost everything I throw at it. I was kinda worried about my video card temperatures at first (58* 47* in Everest) so I set the fan speed to 85%, and the temperatures dropped a few degrees as shown in the picture.
I can say the same thing about the computer overall: it performs great. Thats where my dilemma is. I don't really have a REASON to overclock it, and I would really kick my self in the arse if I DO overclock and mess up something.
That said, should I consider overclocking at all? And if so, how should I do this? Can someone maybe recommend a setup (conservative) that I can test out with my new computer?
Any ideas/suggestions/comments will be appreciated.
