Overclocking Intel E5300 (2.6 ghz) cpu ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I want to overclock this cpu to 3.0 ghz clockspeed. I read it's capable of being OC'd to 3.9 ghz but i just want to 3.0. how do i do this and would i use jsut bios? this will be my first time OC a cpu. and also will this make much of a performance difference from 2.6 to 3.0?

heres some specs of my pc you may need to know

mobo: Asus IPIBL-LB (non aftermarket micro atx mobo)
psu: coolermasters GT 750w
ram: 6gb
gpu:nvidia 9800gt superclocled

other note: if its over heating you may worry, my current desktop case is aftermarket, i swapped the internals from the crappy hp pavilion p6110f . it has more air ventilation and 4 fans inside (5 including cpu fan)

-thank you gentlemen

Welcome to OCN!

What you want to do is very possible, but I doubt you will be able to do it with your motherboard given that it is a tailor made motherboard to HP, so the BIOS probably has no overclocking options.

If you can get yourself a P41, P43 or P45 chipset based aftermarket motherboard you can probably do it on stock voltage. I have a Pentium E5300 in my Media Center exactly like you want yours, running at 3 Ghz with the stock voltage of 1.2875 v with a 1200 Mhz FSB (10 x 300 Mhz) and the RAM running at the stock 800 Mhz on a Gigabyte EP43-DS3.

You've got a balanced system, the added clockspeed might give you additional fps in some games, but the GPU you have won't benefit much because it's not that powerful anymore. You can follow my guide in my sig to see if your CPU is bottlenecking your GPU in the games you play.

i was afraid this mediocre mobo wouldnt be capable of oc'ing or have the options in bios. thank you though ill check out your guide as well. but i think its not worth buying an aftermarket mobo because either way im building a computer from scratch and so far i have the antec eleven hundred case and asus 990fx sabertooth motherboard and about to order the fx8120. so I guess id rather spend the money on the new build.

If you can get a good G41 board, have a look at the E5X00 OC guide in my sig and you should get to 3.9/4.0 easily. Just don't go too far on the volts. My example in the guide is compensating for the terrible voltage drop on my motherboard. As a good precaution, follow my guide then lower the voltage step by step until you have the lowest stable voltage for your desired clock speed.

EDIT: Oh, and Welcome!
