Okay, so I got a FR. m going to change the strings that came with the guitar and tune it (it did not come tuned). So what tuning can I happily lock in if im an insane fan of all extreme metal? Thanks

Whatever tuning you want v,v A dropped tuning would probably be what's most commonly used.

You may need thicker gauge strings (12's or 13's) if you go below Drop C though.

Super Slinkys are barely thick enough for drop D. In answer to your question, what tuning do you use most often?
Gear:
Schecter C-1 Hellraiser
Ibanez GRG170DX
Peavey Vypyr 75
Fender Princeton 650 DSP w/ Celestion 80w speaker

I keep my six string in Drop D, but i keep my 7 in E standard. I play heavy stuff like All Shall Perish, Unearth, Slipknot, Slayer, All That Remains and Darkest Hour and my tunings work for me.

My band recently switched from Drop D to Drop B to accomodate mine and our singer's vocal range, and myself and the other guitarist are using Ernie Ball 11-54.
I just love the massive punch you get from this tuning, but I have other guitars set up in E standard, C standard and Drop D
ohai little sig.

I got 1 guitar in C standard and 1 in Drop B.

I suggest you tune yours to A standard though....lol.

Whole step down, ie D standard.

I keep my SG in that tuning and it sounds good with the Ernie Power Slinkys.

Ernie+Bastard buckers+Maxed Out Gain= Badass

Your strings are too thin for low tunings.

If you go to Regular Slinkys, Drop D is a good tuning.

If you get an even thicker gauge, try C Standard
