Hey everyone,

Could someone recommend some good settings to overclock my CPU to about 3.2 GHz? Here are my specs:

CPU- Intel E6750

Motherboard- Abit IP35-E

RAM- 2 (soon to be 4) GB Crucial Ballistix DDR2 800

Heatsink/Cooler- Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro

GPU- 8800GT 512MB

Thanks!

yeah, just leave the multi at 8 and adjust the fsb to 400 (or 1600, however that bios does it). the 6750 can probably do it at stock voltage. if not, bump the voltage to around 1.35 and try again. if it fails, try bumping the northbridge voltage a notch. That should get you there. that proc oc's pretty easily to 3.2 or even 3.6 and beyond.

oh yeah, you might have to loosen the memory timings to 5-5-5-15 and adjust memory voltage to 2.1 or so, depending on how your memory is rated.

Alrighty thanks, also...should i loweer the DRAM frequency from 800MHz to 667 MHz? I was just reading in another thread that they lowered the frequency.

yeah because when you overclock, it will overclock the memory as well, so you want to give yourself that headroom

ah ok, i gotcha. I tried leaving the memory timing set at 4-4-4-12 which is which is what the stock timing is, however i was noticing that the computer was hanging alot for maybe 5-10 seconds when I was trying to open programs and stuff like that, so I loosened it to 5-5-5-15 like you said and it seems to be fine now. I ran a prime95 test for about 8 hours and it didn't crash and temps didn't break 54C
