OC'ing my E7500 Tags: Intel Overclocking Product Last response: January 15, 2010 9:54 PM in Overclocking Share Outlawed January 13, 2010 4:40:20 AM Hello community. I'm pretty much a noob when it comes to OC'ing, never done it before. I have the Intel E7500 and the EP43-UD3L. I have a standard heat sink and fan on my CPU and 2 other fans on my case. What are the steps I need to take to OC safely and optimize the system? Help is much appreciated. Thanks.
