Will my motherboard let me OC a e6400

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
And this time it's about overclocking in general. I've read some of the guides, and I decided to experiment some. I got into BIOS and looked at my overclocking capabilities. The only thing that's coming up is memory configuration. Nothing about the FSB or anything. Does this mean my motherboard won't let me overclock?

As far as overclocking memory, I've got DDR2-667 running on a 1006 FSB, and my timings are at 5-5-5-15. Anything I can do to speed it up?

I dunno, I have the invoice here with me, but I have no idea what exactly I'm looking for.

The line reads INTEL CORE 2 DUO E6400 2.13 GHz LGA775 1006FSB 2MB L2 OEM CP1111

Scratch that I just looked really closely at the inside and it says LGA775. I assume that's the make and model of said mobo.

If you are running any kind of prebuilt system like the brands iampoor listed, you will not be able to overclock, they use motherboards that do not allow those changes to be made. If not, it would be benifical to fill out the motherboard section of your rig profile, as it is very hard for anybody to help you navigate your BIOS without knowing the make and model of your motherboard.

I didn't build it, someone else built it for me. Intel chipset though.

http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php download and install CPU-Z. When you get it installed and open, navigate to the "mainboard" tab, and post what it says for name/manufacturer. that will be the name of your mobo.
