Total Noob Question: Fox Central Control Unit and CPU Frequency

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi Overclockers

I have an Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7500 @ 2.93GHz installed in a Foxconn G41MXE Motherboard.

I'd like to over-clock it just a bit, and found out that I would have to use the "Fox Central Control Unit" (FCCU) in the BIOS. The FCCU has two main options, "CPU Frequency Setting" and "PCI Express Clock".

The default "CPU Frequency Setting" setting for my E7500 CPU is "266". What does that 266 mean, and where does it come from / how is it calculated?

I think that if I push that value up, I will over-clock the CPU, but I have no idea what the default value means, e.g. is 266 = 2.66GHz, or what? Why is it set to 266 by default for a 2.93GHz processor?

Any simple insight into the 266 "CPU Frequency Setting" default value will be much appreciated. I'd also like an idea of up to where I can "safely" push the 266 value, please, your educated guess will do fine for me smile.gif

Thanks for your time!

You times the 266 by your fsb so 266x11=2.93ghz
bump it up to 276 would= 3ghz.
Thats pretty much it, check out some of the guides on the site.
