Newbie Overclocker: Help with E5300!

I am a complete newbie with overclocking, haven't overclocked a single chip in my life...however, I would like to start. The new(ish) Pentium Dual Core E5300 CPU from Intel is apparently quite a good overclocker and stable with that. I was planning on building a system using an E5300 for a complete rebuild of my home's PCs. Does anyone know a decent clock to OC this chip to? How about the FSB? I was planning on putting it on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3L Board.

You can see the board here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128372

The CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116074&Tpk=E5300

Any advice would be nice. I am planning on doing a moderate overlclock, nothing too damaging. Thanks.

Thanks.

  1. Hi there,

    First of all read this http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/page-240001_11_0.html

    OC is really easy, and i guess you chose a very good cpu-mobo combo to learn it. But you need to know what youre doing in order to do it safely, and that guide i linked is a great crash-course.

    Thats another OC guide, based on gigabyte p35-ds3l, older board but bioses are almost identical so it will also help you understand whats what.

    Once you know the basics youre good to go. Any problems or doubts - just ask :)
  2. Oh, thank you very much. I did not even know where to start, but this is great info. Thank you. =)
