EP45-UD3P Q8300 First OC

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I bought this board awhile back with the intent to do a little over clocking. It was suggested to me from some of the community so I decided to snag it even though its been around awhile. Well I'd like to give it a shot now before I break the bank and opt for a 9650 or swap over to the I5/I7 platform. I have very limited experience with over clocking so I thought I would start out by getting some ideas from the community.

My goal is a moderate overclock, i'm thinking maybe 3.2Ghz.
My setup is:
Gigabyte EP45-UD3P Rev 1.6
Q8300 stock cooler
2X 2Gb Adata DDR2 800+ timings are 4-4-4-12-2t
Antec Truepower 750 TP-750

Questions:
Can I get some ideas about what settings to play with?
From what i've read vcore and fsb. I should stick with settings below 1.4v?

I know some of you own the board and a similar cpu, could some of you post your settings?

Are their any programs I should get(i'm sure their are lol)?

Thanks!

My god, with that motherboard you can achieve 3.7GHz + with a decent cooler...
