i will be getting my first desktop pc from my uncle, and doing some necessary upgrades. i WILL be doing some overclocking, and this will be my first time doing it. however after an hour or two of research, i was left looking deeply confused. i read several pages, and i have no idea how stuff is multiplied, and i also have no idea what multiplier intel uses to rate the FSB speed. when i read the specs of my processor, it said that the FSB is set at 1333mhz. but how has that been multiplied? what is the original clock speed? how is ddr3 ram frequency multiplied by the FSB?
here's the specs of the pc:
- Lenovo ThinkCentre M58P 7220 AGU
- 8GB ddr3 1600 (for overclocking headroom.)
- Intel core 2 duo e8400 (with 9x multiplier)
- Intel Q45 Express chipset
- MSI Geforce gt 640 1GB GDDR5 low profile GPU
- windows 7 home premium (after upgrade from vista home premium)
just in case you think i dont know about the locked bios, i will be using setFSB to overclock the fsb.
