First overclock of e7300

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I bought my self a better cooler today (Artic cooling freezer 7 pro) and I am now ready to make my first overclock. I was thinking of trying a nice light OC to 3.5Ghz on my e7300 (which isn't too hefty judging by some ppls OCs on that cpu.)

Has anyone else got a similar speed out of their cpu and if so, what settings did they use?

I know how to overclock, I just don't know the settings I should use.

Yeah we need to know the specs. But basically, knock up the core speed a bit, make sure you watch the ratio on the ram and dont OC that yet, then if it reboots or fails, put the vcore voltage up a bit. I went to 3.8ghz with my E7400 easy as pie. I beleive that was a 500fsb. (Im on a diff comp)

Set your pcie to 100mhz and ram divider to 1:1 first. Then I would set the vcore within a safe oc lvl ie. 1.35vcore or so and start raising the fsb until it won't boot into windows then fine tune it.
