If anyone wants to help (I dont want to start a new thread) I have a 3500 venice and thermaltake blue orb 2 (120mm) cpu fan I also have a gigabyte GA-K8U-939 which I hear isnt a great OC'r. I also have 3 sticks of 512 3200 (all same construction but diff brands, value corsair, kingston, pny) which I wouldnt think will OC very well at all. Do i have any hope? Can i oc the cpu without OCing the ram\ or any voltages at all. Im kind of a 64 bit nub (i had my 2800xp @ 3800 stable before I bought this system) so your thoughts are always welcome.
