Hey, I want to OC my intel core 2 duo E6300, and I need all the help I can get.. I have spent 2 hours reading in this forum, but I am still uncertin of how it is done..

Here are my specs:

Intel Core 2 Duo-processor E6300, 1,86 GHz, 2 MB L2-cache, 1066 MHz FSB
GeforceTM 7650 GS, 256 MB DDR2
Seagate 320 GB S-ATA harddisk med 8 MB cache
Samsung 1024 MB DDR2 SDRAM med 533 MHz 64 bit understøttelse
VIA P4M890 Motherboard

I really want to OC my CPU, but I dont want to destroy my computer in the proces. I want to squeez 200-300 MHz out of my CPU, is that possible with my system? And I really cant afford a new cooler at this time.. My ideal temperatur now is 17 degreas, and on load it is on 30..

Please help a "poor" danish noob

LOL. Nice writing the specs in Danish, eh?

I think you can be lucky to press a few MHz (well, more than that) out of your motherboard.
The biggest problem is possibly the motherboard.

I'll just say WELCOME! to you, and as a proud dane myself, I'd say:

Velkommen!

There is one important thing that I dont understand.. The RAM setting.. In the forum it says that it should be 1:1 fsb with your CPU.. What does that mean? if my busspeed is at 300MHz then my RAM frequency should also be at 300MHz am i right, or did I totaly misunderstand that concept?

Yes, 1:1 means your FSB is the same speed as your RAM (Actually, reverse.)

Seeing you "only" have Samsung's, plus they're 266MHz (533 effective,) you should stick to a lower divider, which for example is 2:1 (half of the speed) or DDR2-400.

yep, but with ddr memory its actually 600 mhz since its double-data-rate, but you can do 1:2 there is no rule that you must do 1:1 the cops will not come and arrest you . it just means the system bus is sending data to the cpu at the same speed as your ram

Aha.. I will try to OC my system later tonight, but you are still welcome to give me some tips and (hopefully) a guide on doing this.. Need to know if i first should OC the FSB and then the VCORE, or should I do it at the same time? How much should i increas my FSB with at a time? 5-10 MHz? and how much VCORE? 0.05?

I go in the Bios at startup, then in the advanced bios options.. Then I can choose from 5 options, CPU, Boot menu etc.. Where must I go after I am in the CPU options? There are not many options there,, Could it be that my pc cant be overclocked? I have a Medion MD 8818..

Your luck is low if you're running a premade (Medion, in this case) rig. Save up for a new mobo!
