Coud you tell me how to overclock a q8300 step by step?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
My PC:
Motherboard GA-EP43-UD3L (rev. 1.1)
q8300 2.5 ghz with the stock cooler (max temp with prime95 75 c for one hour)
MSI gtx 550 ti oc version
4 GB DDR2 800 Wintec AMPX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820161183
Windows 7 64 bit

My goal is to reach 3.0 ghz

So.....by how much does overclocking would decrease my CPU's lifespan?, I mean, can I use a OCed cpu for example 2 years or it would just last months?

If your max temperature is already 75c without overclocking then you shouldn't bother.

No one overclocks with the stock cooler as its not really possible to any degree.

Get a better cooler then first then come back to this.

Try looking a Scythe Mine 2, Scythe Yasya, Noctua NH-D14 or Cooler Master 212+ as your first cooler.

I cant buy any decent fan cooler in my country........ frown.gif

So, could you you tell me anyway, how to overclock my cpu step by step ?. I just want to know how well my cpu is going to perform with at 3.0 smile.gif

Make sure you use auto-voltages at least at first, so you can figure out where the volts need to be. Bump up the clock by 10-20 mhz at a time, and don't forget to verify that you're using the right advanced memory settings in the BIOS. DDR2 800 and a P43 motherboard won't get you too far, and neither will the stock cooler. Are there no better coolers available where you are at all...?

"Are there no better coolers available where you are at all...?"

No at all frown.gif

There are some details that I know about Overclocking like, set the pci express frecuency at 100 ," dont set the voltage to auto couse it would be to hard for the cpu", set something about the ram, I think its t timing... I don't remember exactly, what do you guys think about it? .

"and don't forget to verify that you're using the right advanced memory settings in the BIOS"

What do you mean by that? What Exactly Do I Have To Do?

I would be careful when using auto voltage, it can be very easy to overvoltage your chip. The max stated voltage is 1.36 for your processor.

I know you say you want to overclock anyway but you are going to kill that chip in a matter of hours if you overclock with no cooler. Firstly it is just going to thermal throttle at around 91c, probably less I haven't actually checked, and the max TCase is 71c as well and you are already at 72c!!!!!!!

It is also a 45nm lithography chip, which is gonna pump out more heat than a newer chip such as an i5.
I am warning you as an experienced overclocker... this is a stupid idea without a new cooler.

Here are some links for you that you NEED to read before even attempting to start overclocking:

Seriously.... read them....

Before I watched your comment.... I Oced my cpu at 2.8 ghz, set pci express frecuency to 100 and memory multiplier to 2.00 b ( voltage on auto....), I ran Prime 64 for 40 minutes and my cpu hottest core reached 77 c which was surprising.

I set the frecuency to 2.9 ghz, after changing the settings, my pc started to turn off by itself and then it turn itself on and 3 seconds later it turn it self off, I had to shut down my ups in order to finish this.

Now everything is set to default.

This is what I did:

What do you think?

I still think it is running too hot.

Those BIOS settings look fairly average, there is not much to change on that screen.

Could we see a screen of the advanced clock controls and of the advanced voltage controls?

Too hot.?, damn , I mean my cpu has been running between 76 - 79 c playing bf3 for 8 month (in that time with prime 64 my cpu reached 82 c) , 2 weeks ago was when I changed the cooler and my cpu max temp while playing drop to 71 c.....

About the settings, what you saw are the only changes I made.., the other options are on default.
