Yea, the "E" series are pretty good overclockers.

Sorry but it's really not THAT hard that it justifies buying new components just to try it.. take a few hours and do some reading.. go into your bios and learn where everytying is then try a light fsb oc and see how it effects the rest of the system (ram, nb, cpy, ht, etc). You'll get a feel for it in no time... don't even touch the voltages or the pci-e freq at first so you can't screw anything up

Hey if the customer wants to leave his hands off his sig and overclock something that is expendable I will honor his request and try and help him out.OP states he does not feel comfortable at this point worrking with his sig so I provide the info he asks for.

I'm glad you're helping, I was directing my comment at OP

Just dive in head first.

instead of wasting money, i'd suggest going easy on the voltage and doing a moderate overclock, instead of dramatic voltage increases for like 200mhz on top of a 4.5ghz OC for example.

thanks for the replies ppl
Just to clear this up, i need a second pc anyway, so i just wanna combine that with some OCing practice just to get a feel for it.
i wouldn't be doing this if i didnt need the second pc anyway.

And thanks for the ebay link, but i dont have paypal so ebay isn't an option, but atleast i know what to look for: an E series intel cpu, and a good ocing mobo, but what about the ram? does that matter a lot?

You'll want to get a set of ddr2 1066 for the best results.

oke people after searching a bit, i came up with this:
corrected: intel E7600
Asus P5Q
Kingston HyperX 4 GB

now i'm only following news about new hardware since, a few months, so i really have no idea about this whole socket 775 and what the differnce between Q and E series is, but i read that this cpu is quite good OCable.
So what do you guys think?

That should be a good rig to play with. You'll need a good PSU and a good cooler.

DDR2 800 is fine for that proc, it has a crazy high multiplier so you don't need to push much FSB unless you want to bump the mutliple down and play with maxing the FSB.

Don't bother wasting your money to build a 'practice' computer.

You got a SB "K" cpu and a very nice p67 board. No need to worry about anything going wrong or frying your computer. Just plug in the multiplier (35-45x to begin with) and core voltage (usually 1.3-1.35V) and you are good to go from there. Mix and match around till you get stable temperatures and load tests using RealTemps and Prime95.

If anything goes wrong or not suppose to work your computer will just reboot a few times and reset back to the original BIOS. Motherboards nowadays are pretty safe as they won't allow you to do anything that kills your system.

Plus you got one of the best air coolers on your cpu, you got nothing to worry about. Keep your load temperatures on prime95 around 60-70C for 2-3 hrs than you are good to go =)

I was brand new to this OC stuff, but I just did it right away. I just plugged in the multiplier and the voltage..and start from there.
