Make sure your Southbridge and RAM don't get to hot, manage your FSB and ram speeds when changing your bus speed, and try for the lowest stable voltage on your CPU possible. Also, knowing what model # of your E5XXX would be helpful, along with cooling.

Also, welcome!

It would be really helpful if you could fill out your system specs in the user CP

Edit your Sig rig. That could help us know what you are working without having us ask a ton of questions.

Also Welcome to the Forums. Hope you stick around.

Okay, so you have a G41 motherboard like mine, meaning your FSB has a limit of 1333Mhz(At least mine does). The first thing I need to know is how your cooling this E5300, if it is stock cooling your not going to get far. First thing, are you familiar with your BIOS?

I haven't done OCing on a 775, hope this guide helps!
BTW My rule, underclock RAM until you have a stable Overclock. That way, if it crashes, then at least you know it isn't your RAM.

^ that is great advice. Also along with ram. Try your best to force it to spec setting.

More advice. Shut off Intell speed step. Look for anything to do with speed step, C1E, and EIST

Should be easy enough.

The FSB on those E5X00 don't like to go above 350. Multipliers are high though so getting a good overclock is still easy.

I have an E5200 in my HTPC.

It's at 315x12 = 3.8ghz. 1.4v needed though. I set the ram to 800mhz but I cannot remember the ratio I used but your board will tell you what speed the ram will run when you select each ratio.

I used a tiny Coolermaster Hyper 101 (takes two 80mm fans lol) and my temps max out at 70c under prime95 so your heatsink should handle a 3.8ghz overlock.
