First-time OC

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody.

I'm fairly new to overclocking and I wanted to OC my crappy CPU to get a better performance in games.

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 @ 1.86 GHz
Motherboard: ASUS P5VD2-MX SE (latest BIOS revision)

It's a stock cooler but the core temps are actually good, they never go beyond 52º Celsius/126º Fahrenheit (full load).
Problem is, there isn't any option on the BIOS to OC it.
So I installed SetFSB and ran it. I can go up to 2031.6 MHz (stable). If I go past 2100 (if I remember correctly), the PC will just display a black screen and I'm forced to power it down.
So I need to increase the voltage, right? How can I do that? No option on the BIOS either.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: There appears to be a feature called ASUS CPU Lock Free: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P5VD2MX_SE/
But I cannot find anything on my BIOS. D:

You're not going to get much overclocking done (if any) with that particular chipset. Also, do NOT overclock your CPU or FSB from inside Windows. All it will do is cause problems. CPU Lock Free doesn't do what you're looking for - it allows you to decrease your multiplier (which isn't what you want)
