Well I think I want to OC my E6400. Currently my temperatures are extremely low or just decent - even on load. I am thinking of mildly OCing it to like 2.6 or something with the stock cooler (stock cooler does an amazing job surprisingly). I've heard people can get it higher on stock coolers, but I just want to mildly OC this baby till I can afford a Zalman fan - then I can really push it.
I ONLY want to OC the CPU though, all I've found so far are guides which talk about OCing the RAM and Vid card too. I don't want this. So, anyone got any articles on OCing a E6400?
You have to go in to the BIOS and bump up the CPU's FSB. Just take it slowly and stress test it.
In your BIOS is a menu item for system clock or FSB clock speed
K, I looked in my BIOS - in every menu - and there isn't any items which say system clock or FSB clock speed. What do I do?
This board is not designed for the high-end enthusiast; abit therefore did not include overclocking capabilities on the board. The multiplier on a unlocked CPU is changeable from 14x to 19x (Intel 670), but there is no option to overclock the FSB. NorthBridge and memory voltage can be set higher, but there is no memory overclock available with this board.
sometimes you have to adjust the ram and up the voltage to overclock the cpu or stability will be a problem. Just a thought. Im not sure how far you can push a c2d until you need to make those adjustments since i dont have one
