First time overclocking

Hello everyone!

I have an  Aurora with an i7 980x CPU. A week ago I new nothing about overclocking. I read what I could find here and other places for a few days then I started to carefully experiment with the BIOS (A11) settings. After a few days I've settled on an overclock setting that is a big performance boost and is very stable. I've been carefully watching my temperatures and torture testing with Prime95.

The weak links in my system are slow Corsair ram memory and a SATA II bus.

My benchmark tests are here:




Here is my no load stats:



Here is my 100% load stats:


I could probably get more out of this but I think I'll quit while I'm ahead! I love my Alienware Aurora!
