Need Help Overclocking CORE2 DUO E4600

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hey, I'm new to overclocking (didn't even know it existed a week ago) but it sounds good to me so I want to give it ago, just today i've updated my motherboard bios so it could accept more RAM, and that all went fine
i've seen here and there people with the same CPU as me getting 3.0GHz out of it so I'd be extremely happy with that

Details:
INTEL CORE2 DUO E4600 2.40GHz
3GB RAM DDR2 800 (2GB DDR2 800 G.SKILL + 1GB DDR2 800 VERsomething)
ASUS P5GC-MX (with freshly updated bios)
500w power supply
no graphics or whatever cards just whatever is onboard

as long as its faster and stable I'm happy

i know you need more info like temps and speeds etc but i don't know how to get them?
