Can you overclock an core 2 duo e7500 2.9 to 3.0 without changing its heatsink?

Maybe I should give you some more info, An aftermarket cooler is not required to overclock your CPU, but it is highly recommened because overclocking will increase CPU temps.

But as your only overclocking by 100mhz, you should be able to achieve that overclock with stock voltage or maybe even less than stock voltage and therefore you wont be increasing the temps by much or at all.

All you need to do is go into the BIOS and change the FSB from 266 to 273 and that will get you to 3.03 to be exact. Nothing else will need to be done, nothing else at all.

First try 3.5Ghz with stock cooler.
If Load temps are under 65c then you might not need to get an aftermarket Cooler.

+1^, try for 3.5 on the stock heatsink/fan, it is do-able...

start here http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/240001-29-howto-overc... read it first before any attempts, then give it a go

to go to 3.5 on that CPU, you will likely have to adjust the voltage a little amongst other things.

I have a e7200 and I managed 3.579 GHZ with 1.328v using a CNPS9500 (new cooler today but been using a much older CNPS7000A-CU). How ever I can't seam to get the temps low enough to ware the cpu is stable at 3.6 solid even after a mod, I removed the IHS and cleaned up the rubbery crap that INTEL used which dropped the temps by a degree or two at load. So with yours 3.2-3.5 should be easy and painless but 3.6ghz may be a challenge.

I also have a E7200 o/c 3.8 ghz with 1.29v using zalman 9500 leds. At 3.2 ghz (with mine) i must to change the Vcore. So you can o/c your CPU at 3.2 ghz i think

Lucky!

What board and psu are you using. Maybe its my crappy Antec ea650 holding me back or the Vrop on my 780i. :??:

My MB is P5B deluxe with the last bios and a corsair HX620 watts PSU. I tried to reach 4.0 ghz but I must to increase the Vcore at 1.40 volts. It's so hot while I got zalman 9500 leds I believe that it's not enough

Hmmm I got a 780i so maybe its vdrop has something to do with the mediocre overclock.

I got the Vdrop too with my MB. I believe I got 0.02v between load and idle

Hmmm better than mine .006 or more if the volts are around 1.4 or greater. I am yet to do the pencil mod though.

Hey maybe i am late but i can tell u that i am running a e7500 at 3.5 ghz at a voltage rate of 1.30 and i have done it with the stock heatsing. and the temperature is at 39 degree celsius

Your must have gotten a better quality IHS (flatter) and a better core than mine. e7200= not the best budget 775 cpu.
