Overclocking Q8400 in windows.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if, it is possible to overclock my cpu in windows. If it is, can you please tell me, and if you wish, and guide me on what I need to do. I am using the stock cooler, so I do not think I can get pas 3.0 or 3.2. Thanks for your help in advance.

First I think you should head over to the Intel CPU section and read up on overclocking. Then find some overclocking information on your board. Then buy a proven aftermarket cooling unit that can handle the heat from an overclock. Soooo much for you to do before your ready lol.
