Q9300 overclock help?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey whats up guys and gals. I am currently a student at the Chubb institute but I dont know anything about overclocking, I feel dumb. I just purchased a rig online and would like to know if i could get some help overclocking the cpu to 3 GHz without having to get a better cooling fan, if thats possible. I dont want to go anyhigher than 3 because i want to extend as much as possible the life of my new processor. I ve tried looking online but even to me, all the numbers and everything give me a headache. My board supposedly has good overclocking features in the bios but i have no clue what they do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't have your Mobo, but I have your CPU. I have got my Q9300 to 3.2G but I have it back down to stock since I don't feel the need to OC an already screaming fast proc. I know getting it to 3.0G is easy on my mobo, just have to mess with the FSB a little and she purrs like a kitten. Good luck and post if you get it working.

There is a thread in the intel motherboards section too dedicated to Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L that might help you out too.
