Hi,<br />
<br />
I've got 1GB of DDR2-400 and an E6400 2.13GHz, and I'd like to overclock. I'm pretty sure I've got the general idea of what I'm doing, however, what speeds and temperatures would be considered 'safe' for the DDR2? I hear that 60-65 is good for an E6400, would it be possible to run at 3GHz ok with a Spire CPU fan?<br />
<br />
If anyone's got any advice, please enlighten me.<br />
<br />
And if any of you are willing to help me along the way, send me a message on AIM/MSN.<br />
<br />
Cheers!

ok, i am also relativley new, but this is what i have learned, most important is cooling do not skimp on ur cooling ever, keep ur ram speed at a 1.1 ratio with the fsb, wich it already is, u sould start at 800 fsb to 400 ram, then just increase the fsb speed slightly around 5-10 mhz, when it becomes unstable up the voltage on the cpu a little at a time, and torture test a little vague but ask more questions and u will get more answers every one is help ful here
