Hi friends,

Firstly my Specs:
CPU: Pentium Dual Core e5300
GPU:Nvidia Geforce GT240 (DDR3 1GB)
Mobo:Gigabyte G41M-ES2L
PSU: some 450 W not so popular brand ,,mron
HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F2HD502HI 500 GB ,, SATA II
i think there's no need of mentioning other case and OPT Drive specs..........

I am quite excited about my 4Ghz OC on Pentium Dual Core E5300 .
Its stock settings are 2.6 Ghz (200*13) with Vcore 1.28750 V.... I upped 'em from this to 4.04 Ghz (308*13) with vcore 1.4650 V. I disabled SpeedStep and C1E to maintain stablity.......
I ran few becnmarks.......... Mentioned Below:
Super Pi Mod X.15 for 32M calculation of Pi....... and it took 14min 35.610 sec..... Is this good for a 60$ dual core ....?
Prime 95........ just stress tested for 10Mins cause themn temprature skyrocekts (70 C though tj max is 100)... cause i am using stock cooler ..........
Wanted to go even further but my RAM is now running at 821 Mhz ,,,, 21 above the stock 800 and its a cheap samsung ram not any crossair dominator.........though i lowered my memory multiplyer to 2.66C which is lowest availible in my mobo.......( i have seen mobo's with 2.00 C mem multiplyer i wish i had that )...........
Now i need few suggestions about my super pi score of 32 m calcluation...... is that good remember mine's a dual core without even hyperthreading i have seen i7 980X doing it in 5 mins and 25 secs..........
Any more good benchmarks there to try.........?
Am i safe that my Pc will not burst up injuring me :D  ...
Any recommendations and advices will be appreicated please reaply all Tech freaks,,,,,,,,,
Thanks,,,

Your PC won't burst open injuring you, but I doubt it's fully stable if you haven't stressed it for more than 10minutes.

I have had my pentium dual core 820 overclocked to 4.00 GHZ with a coolermaster v8 at 40C lowest fan speed. But it is not going to be stable for longer than an hour i believe. Mine only ran for three minutes! lol. Anyways, youre computer will not burst but i would worry about burning up your board mate. Running those high temps is scary business. I had my ram from 800 to 1000 MHZ stable. My cpu ran at 3.6 GHZ stable for a few months but i took it out and put a core 2 quad in my machine. I would worry about your temps and would push it harder! I love to see how far a CPU will go till it burns through the board and goes up in smoke like AMD lol.

well that was Athlon XP now AMD has a shutdown temp like Intel.

My E8500 at 3.8GHz reports 14Min., 6Sec. for SuperPi 32M.

I find it easier to do the 1M for comparisons because it takes less time to run. Mine reports 12.3sec. for that. And my E8500 runs 24/7, and has been running for about 20 months now.

The E5200, E5300 turned out to be really good CPU's for overclocking. Tom's has used them in several of their budget builds. The more expensive chips like the E8500 will have a slight advantage because they have more cache memory, but for the price the E5300 is very good.

If you move up to the new i5 and i7 processors you can get even more speed, at least 15% more internal efficiency than my E8500, plus a good i7 can overclock to 4.0GHz or slightly more.
