How can I overclock my CPU?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok these are my specs

Core 2 duo E6600 2.4GHZ OC'd @ 2.88GHZ
NVIDIA GeForce 7900GS XT Edition 256MB GDDR3 (Soon a 9800GX2)
4x Kingston KVR667D2N5/1G Value RAM OC'd to 800MHZ (and yes, it works perfectly, no overheating or BSOD problems)
Asus P5N-E SLI Motherboard
Western Digital WD500AAKS 500GB SATA Hard Drive
Cooler Master 650W SLI certified PSU
Cooler Master Hyper L3 CPU Cooler (I'll upgrade to a Thermaltake bigwater CL-W0121 before making the overclocking)
Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista Ultimate X64

I made the overclocking using the AI overclocking utility from the Motherboard BIOS because i don't know to make manual overclocking, but it can only overclock to 20% (no matter the RAM, CPU or cooling system) so my question is, How can I overclock my E6600 to 3.2GHZ manually? what is the reccomended Vcore for this overclock? and, in any case, do u know any overclocking software that can be used?

BTW, at this moment, the CPU runs at 40° C stable when it's overclocked to 2.88GHZ

And please don't tell me i have to change my RAM lol because the Motherboard supports up to 800MHZ ram
