Questions about my first overclock

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a Core2Duo [E8400], that I've been running at the stock 3.0GHz for the past 2 years. I finally installed a Xigmatek Dark Knight cooler and overclocked to 3.6GHz by simply increasing the FSB from 333 to 400MHz.
I also switched the voltage from Auto to 1.2500
A number involving the memory increased a bit from 800 to a higher number that I can't remember right now. I used a setting to bring it back to the stock 800, something about ratios. Timings were left the same.
I'm posting some pics for added info and was hoping you could let me know if everything was ok, or if there is any wasting of resources.

Also, I was just doing some video rendering and noticed in the task manager that the memory usage stayed pretty much stable, whereas when I used to render videos, the memory would constantly increase and decrease.

looks good only thing to tell u is that the number that went up is the ram speed. Total ram speed is fsb * memory multiplier. Might have different names but thats how it works. So when you upped the fsb the ram got faster and you dropped the multiplier to put it back to around where it was. continue to do what your doing if u want to go higher. Eventually it will require you to look at northbridge voltage and other stuff
