E4300 Help

After reading E4300 Overclocking for Beginners-from 1.8ghz to 3.47ghz here we go! I decided that cpu is the one i'm going to get.
I have never overclocked before but I fell more confident now that i read the article.

The set up i have is

550watt psu
Gigabyte ga-p35-ds4
E4300 cpu
Crucial 2GB Ballistix Tracer PC2-8500 DDR2
EVGA Geforce 8800gts 640mb 500mhz stock
2 sata harddrives
1 dvd burner and six small pc fans with my case

will this set up work to achive 3.47ghz? and is my power going to give me enough juice?

CPU clock ratio 9x

CPU host frequency (Mhz) 386

system memory multiplier 3.00

memory frequency (Mhz) 1158

I have read the revies of the Crucial 2GB Ballistix Tracer PC2-8500 DDR2 and its overclocks @ 1200MHz using 2.4V. stock 5-5-5-15
another thing i dont know is if i need a aftermarket fan and if i will have 1:1 ratio?

Your help is Appreciated!

Thank You! :)

  1. Should work. i don't see why it wouldn't. I know the E4200 on my friends PC hit 2.6GHz and he had only one RAM module. So with your setup I'd expect ou to be able to hit a much higher frequency.
  2. i really want to push it to 3.47 though :)
    would this be a 1:1 ratio? i dont even know if i'm aking the right question but i'll i hear is that the works better than 1:2 example.
  3. I think 3.47 is a little hopeful for regular use.

    Yes, Get an after market fan.
    Perhaps the Tuniq Tower if you want to OC that high.

    3.0->3.2 are closer to more reasonable OC's for regular use.
    You may be able to get upto 3.4 stable, but really the last 200Mhz is not noticible IMHO.

    The last OC push is usually just for the Benchmark E-Peni.

    The Freezer Pro takes mine to about 3.2Ghz w/o issue.
    Never really tried higher. I eased mine off to 3.0Ghz to keep it silent.
  4. Thankz Zenmaster :)

    can I use the memory i have to get it up to 3.4 1:1?
