Overclocking E6600 with P5N-EM

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
How much can I overclock this thing with this motherboard, if any?
Also, will stock cooling do, and how would I go on with accomplishing this overclock? This would be my first OC, so any helpful thread links would be appreciated.

Thanks

I'm not too familiar with this board, but seeing as it is mATX already gives me the impression that overclocking is going to be semi limited. When you start your computer up, press delete to go into setup(Bios). If you see options to change fsb, voltages, and memory speeds, you can probably overclock a good bit.

About the stock cooling: Stock C2D heatsinks are awful. You probably won't reach too high of an overclock before you will have to stop due to temperatures.

Yeah, I can see memory speeds etc.
Any guides on how much to change these values?
+rep, thanks for help

Read through the Intel Overclocking Guide. You'll find that it is all really simple.

With stock volts, you should get to about 3.0 GHz. Try increasing the FSB to 1333 and you will get 3.0GHz then stress test it for a few hours.

I would definitely not do that. Experienced overclockers like to jump the gun and increase the fsb in huge increments right away. For a beginner like you, especially one who is unsure of what his motherboard can handle, you should go up by 10mhz incriments in fsb and do a quick SuperPi stress test in between.

i wonder why to increase a notch a time ?
while it worked with the last fsn needed with one time increase
i am not experienced

Many time it will work, others it will not. Normally I would not have a problem with it, but he has no idea what his motherboard is capable of.

ya
i think all overcklockable mobo's
test oc settings before POST
and restore settings or run it to change oc settings when oc failed
20 mhz increasement all right
