Over clocking a E6550

I was wondering how far i can over clock my proser. Just a ruff estimate is all i am looking for.
Specs:

E6550 Core2Duo

Z Dual Channel Platinum 4096MB PC8500 DDR2 1066MHz Memory

XFX nForce 750i SLI Extreme Motherboard

after market cooler

my guess is 3.5ghz maybe 3.75

  1. Probably more like 3.3 - 3.5 GHz. But there are so many variables that you will not know until you try.
  2. thank you for your response.

    quick question
    how high would i have to clock to out run my memory?
  3. never mind i think i answered my own question.

    to reach max for my ram i would have to adjust my fsb to 533mhz

    and that would give me a processor speed of 3.73 ghz (533*7)

    which is probably not feasible for the e6550

    does this sound right?
  4. According to Intel themselves, the multiplier for the E6550 is 7, so that sounds correct.
