I recommend you check some forums and get an oc guide, there's a very complete oc guide in the AMD site, they themselves show you how to oc FX series processors.

http://sites.amd.com/us/Documents/AMD_FX_Performance_Tuning_Guide.pdf

And checkout this video for some pointers

Are you fffing kidding me! small frequency like 500Mhz! that is STUPIDLY HIGH. Try 50Mhz or 100Mhz at a time at least not UNLESS you know what your doing, giving that advice to a beginner is just plain stupid.

Actually AMD overdrive is a very good start! cause it lets you try thing without constantly rebooting to test ur changes, but once you have settle for a number go to the BIOS(actually is UEFI) and type the numbers.

Also remember to disable all the power saving features (including turbo core) and look up a good load line calibration setting. I would say something like normal or low for that mobo. This will be done in the UEFI

Are u using the Air Series (AF) fans for Cpu Cooler? if so u should probably swap them for SP (Static Pressure) if you still want the Corsair Red Led fans, they will decrease cpu temps.

Google Static Pressure vs Air Flow fans for Cpu cooler.

I would too, if I could go back in time, but the 285 it wasn't even out when I got this one, I've been buying parts for months.

At least I got a very good overclocker

I forgot to the mention this, but the case is good looking and very good price, but is kind of a pain in the ***.

First you have to make sure to route the CPU power cable BEFORE setting the mobo or it wont fit the cut out is too small and the connector wont fit, you can pull the cable once you screw the mobo though is a little tight.

Also the "air filters" are crap, their are more like a mesh with really big holes. I live in texas which is kinda a desert so there's a lot of dirty in the air, I have only around 3weeks with this build and I can already see dust inside it!! wtf! but with 2 fan pulling intake I guess that was bound to happen.

Before buying the case I saw reviews complaining that the paint comes off very easily its true. You can see this if your not careful with ur screw driver or while installing the psu.

Also there are no grommets for the cut out holes for cable management, not a big deal but worth mentioning.

Finally the windows is kinda big, consider this before getting it. I tried to hide my PSU cables but since the space on the side panel for cable management is not very big, hiding all the cables is not easy you will see them cause the big windows doesn't cover not even the hard drive cages.

All that aside if cheap is good. It's a good starting case, but I will be upgrading soon

The AMD Ram was a mistake, I originally planned an APU build (which benefits from high frequency ram) but later changed my mind (after buying the ram).

The HDD is cause I wanted a bit more perf in the hd and the longer warranty.

For the card I wanted to keep my build AMD so I went for the AMD R9 cards and got a good deal on the card at the time, also I didn't wanted to spent over 200 on the card.
