INTEL I3 OVERCLOCKING

I have heard alot about the tom share site,i too impressed with this site
i have
intel i3 processor 530 2.93 ghz,
500gb hard disk,
gigabyte h55m-s2
mobo,
2gb ram.
i want to overclock my pc to 2.93 to 3.30 ghz, please give me full configuration of the overclocking like cpu frequencies, onboard buffer chip size,features should be enabled or disabled,voltages,etc
i want my pc to give max performance,so i dont want graphics because i am not playing games right now
But certainly i have few doubts,please can anybody clear my doubts
1. what is onboard buffer chip size, it has three value 32mb,64mb,128mb.
for overclocking which is the correct one, which gives max performance.

2. whether 2gb ram is sufficient or the intel i3 processor?

3. what should be the frequency of intel base frequency(intel graphics) it is 733mhz. it changes when we overclock.what the value should be kept for better overclocking ?

4.i have my graphic card nvidia geforce 8400gs, whether i use nvdia or intel for giving good performance in my apps

5. my nvidia graphics card gives low performance than the intel, i cant understand...

6. what is qpi link ratio, it has many values what should i kept for good performance like
44x,40x,36x........................etc

7. hyper threading is new one in the i series processor but it really makes my system slower, does it really makes the system slower?

:bounce: THIS ARE MY QUESTIONS ANY EXPERTS PLEASE HELP ME TO FIND AN ANSWER TO MY QUESTIONS :bounce:

  1. Without swapping coolers or feeding the chip any additional voltage, the most I got out of it was 3.3GHz (150MHz BCLK x 22) I added another 0.16V to the CPU’s core voltage. That’s just under 14%. And here’s what I was able to do: 4000.3 multiplier 21, bus speed 190.5 That’s 4GHz, stable using the stock heatsink/fan. Part of the trick to overclocking this thing was lowering the clock multiplier. Despite always keeping the QPI and memory frequencies in spec, lowering the clock multiplier on the chip improved stability significantly and allowed me to reach much higher frequencies.

    I could have pushed beyond 4GHz but that requires more voltage and potentially better cooling. With a stable 4GHz overclock, I was happy.
