overclocking e7200?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hi I'm new to the whole overclocking business. How would I go about OCing my Intel Core 2 Duo e7200 safely? I have 4gb ddr2 ram, Radeon HD 6970 GPU (bottleneck I know), MS-7380 board. If you need more info just let me know

when i had an e7200 my overclock was pretty straight forward.

fsb: 400
multi: 9.5
vcore: 1.36v
memory: 800mhz (1:1 ratio)

that was good for a solid 3.8ghz overclock.

alright, would that heat up my computer or no? and would I do that all right away? and what is the exact name of the settings or is that what it is

this

it got to 3.8 pretty easy on a value G31 board I had.

The e7200 is prob my favorite processor from Intel, it was the perfect balance of price/performance when it came out. It stomped Toliman/Agena/Kuma processors from AMD by a large margin.

what heatsink do yo have? I don't think the stock one will handle 3.8ghz. just make sure you load temps stay under 75c.

yeah try it all at once... nothing should get damaged if you input those settings.

fsb= front side bus
multi= cpu multiplier
vcore = cpu core voltage
memory = should be DRAM or something similar

you should be able to find all those settings on your bios easily. I had a pretty basic board (650i) with my e7200 and it handled the overclock like a champion.

that's an arctic freezer 7 pro and it should do fine for a 3.8ghz overclock. i had the same heatsink cooling an AMD quadcore and it handled the heat like a champ.

Alright so I don't have to take the OCing slowly and in steps?
