Just wanted a bit of advice before I go ahead and try this. I've done my research on various websites and read the OC giude for newbies on here, but still a bit unsure about some stuff My systems is as follows... Athlon 64 3000+ (Skt 754) Newcastle Core 1GB Corsair Value DDR Gigabyte KN8S MB Nvidia Galaxy 6800 GT AGP Grpahics Card I recently updated my BIOS and now I can't change the RAM timings under Advanced Chipset Features anymore. Should I flash back to my old BIOS (saved it on disk incase I messed up), or are RAM timings not that important? Do I have to OC the RAM also when OC'ing the CPU? I've only got stock fan also at the moment. Is it worth me getting a better cooler or shouldn't I expect a good OC with my currect systems set-up? Sorry for all the noob questions, but I don't fancy messing up my systems just yet. Not due to build a new PC till after my wedding/honeymoon in August. Saving like mad to pay it off Thanks peeps!!
