Hi guys im pretty new to overclocking, i was hoping some of you will be able to give me tips on overclocking my intel q8200. I currently got it oc to 2.8 ghz im hoping to get it up to 3.o ghz . Currently my idle temps are 37c and under load it peaks at 55c. Anybody have any rough guide of how much vcore voltage i would need to get to 3.0ghz, im currently at 1.25v. My system specs are as follows. I haven't done any change to my bios, i use msi's dual core center software to do my overclocking and voltage tweaks.
I have an acbel 540w psu. Turns out my system wasnt stable at 2.8 ghz. Worked fine all of yesterday but today within 10 minutes of starting up i got a blue screen. So clocked it down at 2.73 which i was running before for a few months.
I have a Q8200 and highly regret getting it. Can not get a decent stable overclock.
It just sucks. With my Q9550 I just change the FSB to 400 and BAM! Stable overclock without doing anything else. With the Q8200, when I change the FSB to 400, BSOD. Right now I have it stable at 2.5 GHz. Anything higher and it locks up once in a while. I've tried a sorts of voltages and ram timings. Piece of crap.
