All depends on what you mean by natural overclock? Overclocking isnt promised on any CPU and you could have an E7200 that could just make the cut. If you mean natural in no voltage change you at best would have a 20% chance. If you mean natural in not breaking the 10% voltage increase rule you would have a 99% chance.
I suggest you set your FSB to 333 at stock voltage and see if it boots. If it doesn't reset and increment the voltage by 1%. IE if stock is 1.2v then 1.21. If it does boot but isn't stable increment by smaller numbers. You want the least amount of voltage as possible while keep the system stable.
Run the blend test first for about 12hours. Then move on to the small FFTs for about 8hours. These are the bare minimum for everyday use, but I found out running the blend test for 24hours gave me absolute stability.
Well i just set my case fan to Medium speed and it idles at 37*C which i think is pretty good.
Il give those stress tests a go but im not sure about 24 hours
Is that really needed? i was just thinking about using something that would max out the CPU load for an hour or so just to check it wont overheat.
sorry im not into 45nm. i wish the temp is Realtemp but i somehow prefer the "safer" reading of the coretemp. i think the temp different you better query a person called Lupiron.PM him along with screenshot.
The difference is because of the value for the processor's TjMax configured in Real Temp and Core Temp. It has not been formally documented (externally) by Intel but many believe it to be 95C. Some of the older versions of programs have it as high as 105C, which many believe is too high to be correct.
Edit: In other words, RealTemp is currently considered more accurate at defaults. You can configure the TjMax
Hey I have an Asus P5N-D 750i with a E7200 2gb of Patriot DDR2DDR2 SDRAM 800mhz RAM. Asus has a program with the mobo called AI gear 3 or something and you can overclock from there and they have presets that allow inciments of 5, 10, 15, and 20% I went with 10 then 20 and my CPU is running at 2.78ghz at about 42 degrees C. All I have changed is applying the 20% setting is it safe to do this without changing anything else???
