Sorry for the double.

Okay i got that to work, but i thought it was better to have a lower multiplier and a higher FSB so you can get the most out of your ram?

You can always change the divider for your RAM to get more MHz. I've always been a tighter timings kind of guy myself...

This chip has a low FSB wall so go for highest stable Ghz then play with dividers later. Might want to raise your NB voltage also. I normally set to max to rule out NB then comeback and lower it later.

If you want a higher OC then the rule of thumb is always to loosen your RAM timings. Once you reach what you think is your max OC that you feel comfortable with (temp wise) then you can play with tightening your RAM timings.

alright thanks guys for your insight. I currently got it to boot and ran Prime95 for a while but noticed that my temps were type high so I think i shall hold off until i get a better HSF, stock doesn't cut it....

What HSF are you looking at? I highly recommend Xigmatek HDT S1283. I never went over 50c with 1.3625.

ahh i was looking at that but my question would be if it would fit in my motherboard (UD3P) and case, as the NB heatsink is fairly big and the stock HSF is basically kissing the heatsink. Plus i fear that the top 140mm fan in the antec 300 might be probmatic for clearance.

Does anyone know if the Xigmatek HDT S1283 fits on the UD3P

Hey, Ive never overclocked a cpu before. I want to overclock my E5200 a bit, where would be a good place to start? I would like to get it up to about 3.5 if possible with the stock heatsink. I will get a better heatsink if need be.

MOTHERBOARD: BIOSTAR TForce TP43D2A7
CPU: E5200 Wolfdale 2.5GHz Model BX80571E5200
RAM: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit (Model F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK)
VIDEO: EVGA GeForce GTX 260 (896-P3-1260-AR)
PSU: ZALMAN 850W Continuous @ 45°C (Maximum Continuous Peak: 1050W) Retail (ZM850-HP)
CASE: ABS Aplus Diablo Black ATX Full Tower Computer Case (ABS-CS-EL)

Thanks Guys!

On stock 3.0-3.2Ghz would be a better goal.

Going up to 3.5Ghz on a stock heatsink isnt the right thing to do, go with what PizzaMan says, around 3.0Ghz would be a better goal.

Im around 3.0Ghz cause this Hyper TX2 heatsink I bought isnt working properly, but still better than Intel's stock heatsink, but Im getting around 65C degrees on full load, which already is pretty high for such a small OC.

Just keep checking your temps, if you wanna go any higher than 3.0 Ghz you should really buy a different cpu cooler.
