Intel Pentium E5300

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I want to over clock my Intel Pentium E5300 processor. My mother board is the Intel DG31PR. How would I go about doing this? some people say dont use software, some do, some say use the bios some say not to. Which would be the easiest for me? Thanks

always use the bios.

first of all, click on the user cp on top of the page and then click on edit system on the side of the page.
fill in your cpu, motherboard, psu and ram speed details.
this will help us a lot.

this is a very basic explanation of overclocking

its basic maths. your E5500 is rated at 800mhz. you always divide this number by 4 so 800/4= 200, this is your fsb.
then your processor (cpu) has a multiplier of 13
so 200 x 13 = 2600mhz or 2.6GHz, this is your stock speed

unlink your ram, so it stays at stock speeds, you can overclock the ram later

can you raise the fsb? yours is now 200 (200 x 13 = 2600mb or 2.6ghz ) try rising it to 220
boot into windows
download realtemp and coretemp (google them)
install and run them
then download intel burn test (ibt) and run it.
have a look in task manager and notice how much free ram is listed.

in ibt set threads to 2 (for 2 cores) and then click on custom ram and enter an amount just below the free amount.
eg. i have 2520mb free ram. so i enter 2500 into the custom ram.
run the test for 5 passes. for now, and then at final speed you want, run for 50 passes
keep an eye on temps (do not let it go over 75.c)

if test runs fine, go back into bios, and change frequency (fsb) to 240 and repeat the tests.
keep doing this in 20mhz steps until windows will not boot. then just go back a step (remove 20 from the fsb) to the last stable frequency,
or
just raise the cpu voltage a couple of levels. it should now boot.
its a balancing act, higher voltages will get you higher fsb, but it will also give you higher temps.
max volts for a e5300 is 1.3v

the trick is to do this step by step, just take your time

get the cpu maxed before increasing the ram speed

also this will depend on the quality of your motherboard.
i have seen this chip go to 4.ghz on a p45 or p35 mobo.
