Overclock my E2160.. Need help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a E2160 and a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L. I know nothing at all about overclocking or voltages and stuff like that, if I could get some step by step instructions that would be awesome.

Sorry people. posted in wrong spot

Goto your BIOS --> press Delete at startup

You'll enter this page, find where it says FSB speed, and CPU voltage. The max voltage you want is 1.45 (in CPU-Z, so in the BIOS around 1.47-1.5 is fine)

I had a E2180 which was 200mhz fsb with a multiplier of 10 (200x10 = 2ghz). I changed my voltage instantly to 1.5 in the BIOS, and got 1.464v in CPU-Z. Then I changed my FSB speed to 300mhz so it was 300x10 = 3ghz. From there I upped it slowly, and eventually reached 3.3ghz on the E2180.

You have a 9x multiplier, but I know many people have put the FSB speed to 333mhz, which is 3ghz. Linskingdom has a E21xx thread that shows all the stable configurations of these cpus. Look at someone with similar specs and perhaps base it off there (this is just to save time, as I did this).

After you make your new overclock, you need to test the stability by downloading a program called ORTHOS or Prime95, make sure it runs without any errors for at least a few hours (preferably all night) and if there are no errors then your overclock is stable. If this is confusing, i'm sorry as it's pretty late good luck
