I think i am going to try to overclock my Q9450 but i need your help. I know their are threads here but i would like 1 on 1 help. Im scared that my cpu would be damaged but i would really want to try ocing.
I heard that it easy to get to 3.2ghz and im using stock fan. What is the highest ghz until i need a new fan?

1: Read the OCing guide 2: Read it again and take notes 3: search for the things you don't understand 4: Read the guide again 5: Download CPU-Z, coretemp, OCCT or Prime95, memtest 6: BUY an aftermarket heatsink 7: Download the Intel Data Sheet for your processor so you KNOW the max voltages that Intel recommends so you don't fry anything. 8: Read the guide again and start OCing. Have FUN.
I got it to 3.2ghz and im at 1.2v everytime i test it crashes
It crashes for a reason, now you just have to find out why.
Start low, change one setting at a time, Test, Monitor Temps...............again and again
