Overclocking Asus P5QPL-AM

hihi, i want to overclock my cpu but i'm not sure exactly what i have to increase to get from 2.8 Ghz to 3.0~3.10 Ghz (maybe higher later on).

I have:

- Asus P5QPL-AM
- Pentium Dual-Core E6300 2.80Ghz
- Cooling is stock

Cpu Details and temperature:

I whould be thankful if someone posted a guide or instructions how to do that from bios.

  1. Start with this, read it, then read it again, then overclock from the BIOS, post any questions/concerns back here if you have any.

  2. Ty i readed it but too much info, i am still confuzed of how much of what should i increase to get from 2.80ghz to 3.0ghz.
  3. well, overclocking is not a simple task, that is one of the best guides to overclocking C2D & C2Q i have seen, so learn that guide and overclock at your own risk. The reason i say that is because EVERY CPU, Motherboard and RAM set are different and do not overclock the same so if i tell you to use certain settings and you end up frying your PC, i do not want the blame, so again, read the guide and Overclock carefully...
  4. Whell i tryed to OC and i put frequency to 300 x 10.5 i got to 3.17 ghz but got hot up to 67° C, full load.

    I tryed lowering it 284 x 10.5 got to 3.1 Ghz and the temp was around 63°, full load.

    I readed before that if the temp is around 60°+ C it's too hot? than other ppl say 70°+ C is critical?

    My question is the 60-65 dangerus temp for E6300 Wolfdale 2.80Ghz processor? :heink:

    When i'm doing nothing the temp. is 40° c the fan is stock.
  5. if you want to be able to overclock higher and stay under 60 celcius, get an aftermarket cooler, stock cooling for Core 2 Duo is not very good at all.

    If you are at the low 60's in temps under full load, you should be ok, but anything higher would not be too good.
