Since my Pc is working with a E6300 I wanted to ask you for your opinion weather I should overclock it or not.

You have to know that my Pc is already more than 2 years old and that I want to use it for at least 1.5 years more main use is gaming.

My power supply unit started burning 1 month ago so I have a new one now, but don't want to increase Voltage to much because I don't want it to burn again.

Up to now I didn't overclock any part of my pc. I don't have any overclocking experiences

Info about my System:

Mainboard: ASUSTeKComputer INC. p5b
Bios: American megatrends inc. version: 0701 (10/2/06)

Cpu: Intel core 2 duo E6300

Ram: Kingston ValueRAM, 2x2GB Kit, DDR2-800, CL5 brandnew

(Graphic card: Geforce 7900 gs don't want to overclock the graphic card).

I would be very satisfied with 2.4 Mghz

If you need any more information please ask for it.
Thank you for you time and sorry for my bad english

  1. You should be able to get 2.4 ghz fairly easily.
    You'll most likely have to raise to vcore a bit, just make sure not to raise it too much, just a little bit at a time until your computer is stable.

    And your English is better than alot of Americans :D
