  1. I'm not an OC fan but you could surely provide more useful info like: case, current temps, power supply, knowledge... etc...
  2. My case has excellent airflow and my power is 400 watts, temps are normal.
  3. the e7500 will OC well , but your motherboard might not let you go too high because that 945 chipset is pretty old , and you may need better cooling

    have a look at the overclocking guide for C2D's
  4. This should be your first stop.

    It's for an EP35-DS3L but all the Gigabyte Core2 BIOS's are similar.

    Go through the guides. Then take your core voltage off Auto and set your memory voltage to factory recommended values. Change the System Memory Multiplier from AUTO to 2.00, 2.00B, or 2.00D - whichever you need to set the Memory Frequency to twice the FSB. Then when you increase the FSB, the memory clock will rise in in proportion with it. At an FSB of 266 MHz, your memory clock should be at 533 MHz.

    Download CPU-Z to check your FSB:RAM ratio. It should be a 1:1 ratio.

    You will need better than the stock cooling.

  5. So my ram is ok for overclocking
  6. by the way i just want a simple overclock to make my cpu at 3.0 ghz
  7. It's not worth the trouble. The chip runs at 2.93 GHz anyway. But if all you want is 3.0 GHz, push the FSB freq to 273MHz. You shouldn't need to do anything else.
  8. I had a E7500, 4gb kit RAM, HD 4890, Intel P43 Chipsets

    Is that a bottleneck system?? Should I have an overclock on my E7500??
