So, at last i have just overclock my intel E4500 cpu in my intel946gzis motherboard. Not very much, but decent for me. I have done it by bsel mod(bsel 1 to bsel 2) to change fsb from 200 to 266, my E4500 running at 2.93 GHz. And this is my 1st time at overclocking.
I am using heatsink and fan which come with the processor.
Temperature from speedfan--- 43'C@ idle and 74'C @ 10 minitues of orthos small FFT test. Is this ok?
Will this overclocking reduce my cpu life span? I want to last this cpu at least 3 years.
Guys , do you give me some advice about those? I know some of you have lots of experiences in cpu overclocking.
Lifespan mostly depend on your vcore, instead of clockrate. How many volts did you give it?
