HELP! Gotta prove work friends wrong!

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i'm new to overclocking and to building a computer. Its my first build so I didn't wanna push out too much cash n tried to stay under a $500 budget. I've got myself and E5300 processor and was wanting to overclock it from 2.6ghz to 3.2ghz and was pretty confident that i could do it, but now that i have told people from my work that are very technical minded, they are all doubting my overclocking skills and are waiting for me to fail. I figured it was a pretty straight forward task that was just time consuming and needed some know how. In short, i'm just asking for a step-by-step run down of how to overclock my CPU.

currently using
Intel E5300
2GB 1066mhz ram
PowerColor HD5770 1gb Graphics card

Thanks for all the help guys!

If its a decent mobo you shouldnt have any problems. You should reach more than 3.2Ghz.

Overclocking a 5300 to 3.2 should be pretty straight forward with the right mobo.

and this is a pretty good guide

http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...ing-guide.html

In short, raise the FSB until it's no longer stable. Then raise the vCore and repeat.

and welcome

sweet as thank you! i will let you know how it goes. just one more thing, what are the chances of destroying my cpu if i overclock it a bit, and will if my cpu blows, will that effect my other parts of my comoputer?

Worst that will happen really is a BSOD because it you don't have enough voltage to start it, but on the other hand if you put to much voltage to the chip you will fry the chip.

I would find out what the max safe voltage is for the chip before proceeding if I were you then go for it. Also check what the max safe temps are and such and use monitoring programs.

EDIT: also a after market heatsink will help in overclocking via the cooling needs.

This is what you post was supposed to look like.
Sir you have just proven that you have no overclocking skills.
A 600mhz overclock takes like 30 secs...including reboot of machine.
Lying to your co-workers about something you obviously have no concept of, shame sir shame!

i had a $40 CPU cooler on my E5200 and i ran it at 3.5ghz for months, and it wasnt even a good OCing chip. others could run 3.6, 3.8 and a few could hit 4.0ghz

just get CPUz for voltage monitoring and general info (and confirmation of OC for your friends), HWmonitor for temps and a stress tester like intel burn test or prime95. i like IBT cause it takes less time, but its much more intensive so watch your temps. prime95 needs atleast an 8hr test to call it stable. for IBT i run 20 loops of the test to confirm an OC is stable, this takes 1-1.5hrs depending on your OC, just watch some TV. when testing to see if a clock is stable, i run 3-5 loops and if it passes, i bump it up a bit more and do another short test. then when i am happy with my OC, i run the 20 loop test. IBT is easy to set up too.

for an E5x00, stay below ~70*C and dont go above 1.3625v on the Vcore. set it to 1.250v or so and see how stable it is at 3.2ghz or so. you can bump the Vcore to around 1.3v or so.

what cooler are you using and what motherboard? the OEM cooler wont really handle voltage increases very well but even cheap aftermarket coolers will be significantly cheaper. look at the coolermaster hyper 212+ or the Xigmatek S1283 series (i had the Dark Knight edition and liked it a lot) if you need a cheap cooler.

OCing those CPUs is SOOOOOOOOOOO easy and 3.2ghz is a very modest OC for the E5x00 chips. they can really clock high if you spend some time on it.

do not run prime95 for 8 hours! 25 minutes is good enough! unless you have water cooling or a highend air cooler there is no reason or need to run a cpu with a stock cooler on 100% load for that long.

um, yes, its called stress testing. if you fail cause you run it more than 25 mins its cause your CPU is not stable or you dont have the cooling performance to handle your OC and you shouldnt be OCing anyway.

look on any CPU club, you have to run multiple hours of prime95 and have proof to be able to be listed in their overclocking list.

As long as you are lying to your co-workers about your overclocking ability, you might find it easier to just take and overclock pic from somebody elses post, change it to a .pdf file, and alter it to look like you did it!
Same thing our government did with a birth certificate! You know when you can't prove something, lie and provide false documents to substaniate your lie!!
Way easier than the truth and this way you can probably get that 5000 series cpu up to 10GHz or more on paper!!!!












Yes this was a rant and fairy tale for the day. Good luck with it.
