Hello everyone... i recently found out that my processor is extremely overclockable. My Pentium Dual-Core E2140! I even heard rumors of people getting theirs up to 3Ghz on stock voltage! Can this be true??? Anyway whether i can get it that high or not i dont care, this is my situation... I would like to overclock my CPU (E2140) from 1.6Ghz to AT LEAST 2.0Ghz or maybe even 2.2 or 2.4. I don't have a fancy motherboard so i won't be able to change stock voltages. What is the highest stable clock i could get out of it? Thanks in advance, Jake

You can just adjust your FSB. Your cpu has a 200MHz fsb with x 8 multiplier. If you change that 200 to 250 then you'll get 2.0ghz.

If the motherboard gives you access to the appropriate BIOS settings.
