Settings for pushing E6550 to 3.0-3.2 Ghz

Hey peoples,

I'm trying to OC a 2.33 E6550 C2D to around 3.0 ghz. I'm using a Gigabyte P35-DS3R and a corsair 750 watt psu. Can anybody give me some good settings or point me to a tutorial for this exact cpu to OC it to that speed?

Also not related to OC but don't wanna make a new thread for it. Does WMP 12 support hardware acceleration of blu ray movies? Thanks for the info on both questions

  1. It's not the CPU settings that you need. It's the motherboard settings that will determine the overclock.

    This should be your first stop.

    It's for an EP35-DS3L but all the Gigabyte Core2 BIOS's are similar.
  2. Basically you are playing with multiplier, FSB, VCore, FSB:DRAM ratio (1:1).
    Jsc has already give links for OCing, you can read those links.
