Overclocking an i5-2310 CPU

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I have a new computer and want to optimize the hardware I am given, does anyone know the recommended settings to overclock an i5-2310? Know that I have very little knowledge on the subject. track.php?u=2

It's a locked cpu so overclocking is not really an option on that cpu. You could adjust the baseclock a little but that's not really safe. You will also need a p67 or z68 mobo.

i5-2310 is not completely locked, it has partially unlocked multiplier. If I'm not mistaken, I think you could overclock it to 3.3GHz without touching the baseclock

True but i don't considder that partially unlocked it's just using the turbo boost to it's advantage. Some real oc'ing is not in this cpu

Yes, as long as he has a P67 or Z68 motherboard.

Samhuang, is this a pre-built computer or did you build it yourself? What motherboard do you have? If you have a non-OEM P67 or Z68 motherboard, it should be possible to overclock the i5-2310 by a few hundred MHz.

Not quite true, there should be more multipliers available than what turbo boost would provide. For the i5-2310, the max 4-Core turbo multi should be 30x, so it should be possible to use the 34x multiplier for four active cores, at least according to the original deck of press slides released with Sandy Bridge.

Hey, if I have an i5 2310, am I able to overclock with this set-up or no?

I was only able to get a pre-built computer because my mum got it for me for my birthday and she wouldn't have known how to order online.

I also have an nVidia GeForce GT 530 2GB and 6GB Ram (1x2GB, 1x4GB)
I would like opinions on, if I was to upgrade 1 thing, what would be the best thing to upgrade for gaming?

EDIT: So I just found out that my H67 motherboard can't overclock at all. Another question, would it still be worth possibly upgrading to the Intel i5 2500k CPU if I'm unable to overclock? Still would like opinions on what would be the best choice on upgrading.
