Hey I'm Sorta A Noob At Overclocking

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey my name is Graham and I just got the E8400 and I am really excited to overclock it. Anywhere from 4.00ghz to about 4.5. I do have an aftermarket cpu cooler its the ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro. The cpu runs sometimes at about 11 celsius with my monitor PC Probe (thats the lowest)I havent checked the load yet. The thing I am having trouble with is actually using the bios for my P5k-vm Asus motherboard for overclocking.I am a complete noob to overclocking! Has anyone here personally done this or have an asus board that could help me? All the help I can get would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Graham

Intel Overclocking Guide

Heres another thread here with a guy wit the same board

Do some reading, I dont know the ins n outs of that board/bios so cant say much... although I wouldnt get my hopes up for 4.5 unless you got a liquid cooling system laying around.. 4.0 should be doable though
