E7300 Light Overclock

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello!

I'm running a Core 2 E7300 @ 2.6 on an Asus P5QL-Pro mobo. 4gb ddr2.

I have been wanting to boost my performance but know little about overclocking and can't afford to damage any hardware. If anyone knows anything about or has experience with this board, I'd appreciate any guides/walk-through.

I'm not expecting to do a large overclock, perhaps only to 3.0ghz since I am on stock but I've heard people going over that and being fine while on stock. My rooms ambient temp and case has good flow.

i would start there should give you a basic idea i would think from owning an e7200 and another p5q board you should be able to hit 3.0ghz easily what ram do you have??

you should be able to get up to about 3.5 on stock cooling provided you dont mess with the voltage. 1.38 is intel's recommended limit, 1.45 is the highest you can go voltagewise before significant degradation begins. At that voltage the processor has about 3-4 years. 1.38 should last longer than 10 years. And its not the high clocks that do a chip in, its the voltage.

Ah, I did not know that. Well, it's good to know if I do it right my CPU will last for many more years haha!

brief high voltages are fine, but dont keep the voltages high for very long.
