I recently nearly compleated my system and i would like some help understanding overclocking more.. i read alot of articles and still i see my self a nuuubb...

My current Rig Setting is :
AMD 1090T 3.2 Stock CoolMaster V8
Asus Crosshair IV Formula
OCZ 1600Mhz AMD Black Eddition Ready
Gigabyte ODION PRO 800W PSU
ATI CrossFire -2x Sapphier Vapor-X HD5770
2x 1TB HD Western Digital Black Cavier 32MB Cache
CoolMaster HAF X Case

I am planing to get a SSD soon but the prices here are too high soo i am waiting to travel...

and after reading alot of reviews i saw that the 2x5770 is better price for performance than one 5870...

are there any recomendations to start pushing this system to the max...
do u think these compnenets need modifications as in ram frequiencies or bus speeds?

looks a good kit , iam fairly new to overclocking so dont take what i say as law
I would start by taking readings of idle and load temps as you are then check them with the components max temps . That will tell you if you have room to overclock. if your looking good from there then try AMD overdrive , if that doesn't work( didnt work for me) then look around at bios overclocking. Get to know what you are doing, youtube has loads of good vids. then slowly begin to inch your system up. The main thing is to overclock is very small sections so as not to damage your system, every time you overclock it bit more take new temp readings and run the stability test on AMD Overdrive that way you know things arent about to get all messy If you want to overclock your GPU then i would use Catylist control center. IF that doesnt overclock enough for you then AMD again have a good tool
as before take it slow watch temps and run appropriate stability tests
as I said I am no expert so I would try get others opinions to
As I said I am not expert
Hope it helps
