Overclocking help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm quite new to overclocking and would appreciate a little step by step guide to ensure I do it correctly xD

Components :

Intel E6550 @ 2.33 ghz ( stock clock and stock cooling @ 2000RPM )
Crucial 2GB 667 RAM
ASrock 1333 DVI/H 1333 2.0 (Not great but can get some out of it.. apparently)
4 case fans running at 100%
Arctic Power 700W PSU with dual 12v rails 22 A each ( if this is necessary )

I was going to use Ntune but wasn't sure because the chipset is an intel chipset rather than an Nforce 4,5 etc

I'm only planning to overclock the CPU a bit because 2.33 ghz is kinda bottlenecking my 9600GT.

This is the Bios screen for the CPU.

Mine shows the CPU frequency as 333 and PCI frequency as 115 MHZ


Ask if you need any more Info : )

Just go search for guides on this site. There are plenty. In a nutshell just raise your cpu frequency up a little at a time or jump to what your final speed you want. Then boot into windows, then raise the speed more, then you will find a point where you can't get into windows. Therefore you raise your vcore up a notch until you can get back in. If your mobo can, set the ram as unlinked.

Take a look at the guide in my sig. It's for the P5N-E, but the principle is the same... you'll just have to figure out what the corresponding BIOS options are (if they exist) for your board.
