this is my first attempt in overclocking ,here is my cpu id taken by cpuz
http://img819.imageshack.us/i/image4po.jpg/
and i have nvidia 9400gt 1gb overlocking it from 550/1400/400 to 720/1830/600mhz core/shader/memory running abs stable,
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 plus, win 7 32bit
i want to know how far i can overclock.i have read this guide
http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/page-245679_11_0.ht...
and i am intending to just set multiplier to 12 and set cpu voltage to max vid 1.2875
here is core temp readings
http://img835.imageshack.us/i/image0t.jpg/
the maxVID is 1.2875 does that mean i can't exceed it ,noting that at max load each core vid is 1.1375and the max frequency of each core is 9x200=1800 ,so what is meant by e5300@2.6 ghz ,what is its computation.note that max multiplier is 9.
i have installed gigabytes's easy saver .it doesnt run at startup ,is it a must to remove it, it doesn't exist at add remove progs.
for cpu multiplier what is the max number i can choose, i prefer to keep fsb intact because i read somewhere it affects ram speed
because fsb/dram ratio must be constant ,correct me if i'm wrong
my gratitude to whom helps me.

You are laboring under some misconceptions.

First, the E5300 runs at 2.6 GHz (200 MHz X 13).

Second, if you check the CPU panel of CPU-Z, it shows you running at 1.2 GHz (200 MHz X 6). Something called "SpeedStep" kicks in and drops the multiplier to X6 when the system is idling. Under load, it runs at full speed.

Third, I reccomend that you go into the BIOS and set the System Memory Multiplier to 2.00. That will put your memory in step with the CPU FSB. CPU-Z will indicate that your RAM frequency will be 200 MHz (RAM clock will be twice that - DDR2 RAM. Your FSB:RAM ratio should be 1:1.

Fourth, Intel's max recommended voltage for your chip is 1.45 volts.

Depending on your chip, you can expect anywhere from about 3.5 - 4.2 GHz. I had an E5200 in a Gigabyte P35 board. The best I was able to do with that particular chip was 3.78 GHz.

GA - G41M - ES2L + E5300 can go easy to 3.12Ghz
(13 x 240) 95% Stable / 3.0Ghz (10 x 333) 100% Stable
with Intel Burn Test 2.50
Max Stress in windows7 64bit
Pass 25 tests at (10 x 333) 3.0Ghz
Default or Auto all voltage setting
with low Vcore at 1.26v
Temp 36c - 61c max

--

But i want to do it up tp 3.5ghz..
Any suggesion?
Help...
Acctually im new to O,C..
Noob lol.. :D

The E5200 series CPU's are a good match for the G41 motherboard. The G41 FSB freq is generally less than 350 MHz. With the CPU's high internal multiplier, you do not need a high FSB freq.

This should be your first stop.
Core2 Overclocking Guide

Shadow's Gigabyte motherboard OC guide:
http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/page-245679_11_0.ht...
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 (or whatever your BIOS calls it) 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.

Keep your core voltage under 1.45 volts and your temps under 70 C.

Mine G41M-ES2L with E5300 is stable @ 4.04 Ghz @ 1.4250 Vcore,,,, It Damn crushes C2D E8600 under its foots,,,,, :)

4Ghz with ga-g41m-es2l ?Wow,..really?
Can u give u full spec of u setting?coz i have E5300 + GA-G41M-ES2L mobo but i cant oc more then 3.15Ghz stable..higher then 3.15Ghz it will BSOD on Windows...
Im using PC6400 2g x 2..but even im using PC8500 2Gb ram i guess the max oc with this mobo is 3.4Ghz...
So pls...can u give some prove with U 4Ghz oc with this g41-es2l mobo?
I thing u lie with that...LOL!!!
Be Hornest lol..:D

#### Can u give u full spec of u setting for G42m-es2l + E5300 oc at 4Ghz... ###
Can its difficult to get that OC iwth this gigabyte g41-es2l mobo.... ~X( :D

hey specs of my pC are :
mobo: Gigabyte G41N-ES2L Rev.1.0
cpu: Pentium Dual Core E5300 @ 4.0Ghz Stable OCD
ram: 1GB * 2 DDR 2 6400 RAM (Samsung)
psu: merom 450 W (its local brand)
gpu:Nvidia Geforce GT240 1GB
HDD:Samsung HD502HI 500 GB

and lots of fan in the case 7-8 ,, to keep situation @ 4ghz under control,, morover i bechmarked the CPU fully and concluded that its faster than Core i5 650 (Stock),,,,, !!!

Yup...nice oc bro...
may be my es2l is a difected mobo..thats why i cant reach high then 3,1g

with my GA_G41M_Combo i can reach 3,83Ghz 1.58Vcore without problem even with intel stock cooler :ouch:  at 73C max at full load without anyproblem... :D

ya it there may be the chance of mobo being defected,,,, G41M-combo is great mobo like es2l for Ocing as well it has DDR 3,,, ,,3.83 is good, but lower voltage slightly till the full load temp remain around 65C,,, as max temp for me is around 65 or little less only,,, morover i never go to voltage above 1.48750,,,

My g41m_combo only stable at 3.8G/1.58Vcore..Below 1.56V it getting BSOD at windows startup..That make me confuse.I have see many OCs dont need sucha high Vcore to reach stable oc at 3.8G.
Should i change my PSU?Coz im using 480w psu..Cheap one lol... :D

3.8G at 1.58Vcore with intel stock cooler...May be shes gonnna die soon :pt1cable: 
For newbie OCs .. :heink:  NEVER TRY THIS AT HOME :non: 
Gasak bah!!!BooOm really soon?? :lol:

The funny thing is i use 2 pcs intel stock cooler to reach 3.8G at 73C.(Intel P4 and dual core) heat sink..I stick it up with SUPER GLUE..
All this crazy idea come in my mind coz its really hard to find 3rd party cooler t my place. :D 
Crazy is it?????...

hey, its not abnormal,,,,,, each cpu is differemt,,,,,,, as it gets old it need more Vcore voltage for being stable,,,,,,, i am experinceing this,,,,,,, and one more thing my CPU tolerated even 4.25 Ghz,,,,,,, but i burned up my mobo Gigabyte G41M-ES2L,,,,,,,, :( ,,,,,,, cause it was not designed to supply the power to cpu in extreme overclocking as it only had 3 CPU power phases,,,,, anyhow replaced with another G41MT-ES2L (has DDR 3 insted of DDR 2) under RMA,,,,,,,, for which i had waiting a month long,,,,,,,,,, a firly long time,,,,,, a price that needs to be paid for living in country like India especially in a small town,,,,,,,,,,,
