E8400 + Asus 5PKE OC

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Im new here and im an absolute idiot when it comes to overclocking (more of a software guy). However I would like to get the best from my system before I upgrade the whole system. I really wouldn't know anything, not even where to start nor how to check if I have all the prerequisites for overclocking. My full specs are in the profile but I will post them here too:

MBO: Asus 5PKE-Wifi
Proc: Intel Core2Duo E8400
Mem: 2xKingston KVR800 2G + 2xKingston KVR800 1G
PSU: Corsaid VX450 W
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Seidon 120M
GPU: ATI Sapphire HD4470

I'm not sure about the memmory, is everything compatible for an OC and is it even worth it?

thank you very much in advance.

If you can pull a few extra Mhz out of the chip then why not? Just make sure you've got a decent cooler on that CPU that will handle the extra heat after you OC.
If it's for gaming then you might be better off with a hardware upgrade.
