Intel Pentium E5300 - OVERCLOCK

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,
I have made account here to ask you if my computer is possible to overclock, so every comment is usefull for me.

My computer settings, properties, and others are:

Intel Pentium(R) Dual-Core E5300 2.6GHz @ 2.6 GHz
Core Speed: 1207.1 and changing alittle
CODENAME: Wolfdale
Socket 775 LGA
Model: G31D-M7
RAM 2.0 GB
Nvidia 9400GT 1GB

_________________

Ok, now I want to overclock my 2.6GHz to X.XGHz, because I'm playing a game which needs alittle faster computer than mine.

The question is,
What's the maximum GHz my computer can reach?
Can someone tell me excatly here what to do, I'm now so...



__________

Btw please do not send me links like E5300 Overclocking Club, another sites, because I'm watching this 12 days and found nothing.
I searched every topic about E5300 here, almost, and found nothing.



My BIOS doesn't have CPU HOST CONTROL option, but yes Frequency and others.

I swear by god, looking for something like this for hours, and found nothing, so please help me, I don't want to do a stupid thing and my processor burn, doing it alone without help, THAT'S WHY AM I HERE.

I wouldn't overclock using the Biostar G31D-M7 because it's a Micro ATX board that has onboard video and it has the G31 chipset. If it had the P31 chipset, then I guess I might consider it. Even better would be P35 or P45, but the G31 just means "it's not worth the effort".

So being a Micro ATX board is one problem, having onboard video is another, and having just the G31 chipset is the biggest problem.

Generally, Micro ATX boards have very little physical room on the PCB for quality components that help with overclocking. Having onboard video consumes even more PCB space as well as resources. Then there's the chipset. For Core2 Duo and Core2 Quad overclocking, the P35 chipset is about the minimum for overclocking, and the G31 is below the P31.

Plus, there are 4 other things: the specific memory that is installed (not the amount, but the specific model), CPU cooling, the computer case (airflow), and the power supply.

So in other words, I think that trying to overclock the E5300 in this system could end up being quite frustrating. :/

I've overclocked it using +5% more CPU Voltage, now from 1200.0 to 1500.0
Can I go alittle more?

I'm ready for everything, if I broke this one, I would buy a new on ecomputer, so please write how to do it, it's my fault if something wrong happen.

I'm not saying it will break anything, but instead I'm saying that whatever maximum overclock you achieve will not provide any real noticeable difference in performance because of all of these limitations (it will be a small overclock). It'll end up being a disappointment.

However, which game are you playing?

Lags alittle, but like, 60 people of 62 said me that overclock will help alot, after I gave them my computer properties and others.

You've also only got a 9400GT.

And you don't have a motherboard made for overclocking. The resulting OC will be very small. Hardly noticeable.

Tie that in with your very slow GPU and in reality it won't make much difference.

The system requirements say "Core2 Duo E6600 or better" which is a 2.4GHz CPU that has a 4MB L2 cache. The E5300 is a 2.60GHz CPU, but it only has 2MB of L2 cache. The amount of L2 cache has an effect on gaming: the more, the better.

So I think the bottleneck is the 9400 GT even though it has 1GB of memory. Therefore, I think that achieving better performance in Call of Duty: Black Ops will be achieved by upgrading to a better video card (one that has more power than the 9400 GT) because overclocking the CPU might leave you with no difference in performance because the maximum overclock may only end up being like 2.7 or 2.8 GHz with this motherboard.

I don't even know what memory you have yet, but the memory that is installed can be a huge impact on overclocking potential.


Edit: Unfortunately, me and Cyph3r here are not the only ones who will be saying this. As time goes on, more and more people are going to reply to this thread and essentially say the same things.

Ok, but as I have said, I JUST WANT TO OVERCLOCK IT.
I knew alredy all which you have said, but help me to overclock it, I want to overclock it, just say me HOW.

Please do not again write that it will be hardly detectable.

Overclocking will not help in this system.

Replacing the 9400 GT with a card that is more powerful will.

Seriously man, listen to Twocables, he knows what he's on about.

But your not going to be able to overclock properly on your motherboard, its just not made for it, you dont have the options available to properly overclock, and the motherboard wouldn't handle much anyway.

Also seriously, your 9400GT is slow. Real slow.

cod4_1280_1024.gif

Check it, you get a slideshow worthy 15fps at 1280x1024 on the aged Call of Duty 4 (and thats with a faster CPU than yours). Seriously, it's that slow. Overclocking your CPU by the tiny bit your motherboard will allow isn't going to change the darndest thing.

Upgrade your GPU to something that's slightly more poweful than a gnats fart and try and find a second hand P35/P45 mobo.
