Welcome... the ix series is not my area of expertise so I will direct you to a GREAT guide written in house by one of our very own, MIAHALLEN.

But to give you an idea, all overclocks will be different. Wherever you are comfotable with so long as temps and volts are under control, is what you should shoot for. The article gives a bit of that information in it as well.

WELCOME and best of luck!
