Intel e7200

Hi everyone . I want to overclock my cpu , was in my mind for a while . Finally i found enough courage to do so . I'm a complete noob at overclocking and don't know much about BIOS . Anyways , after reading up some posts about e7200 , i decided to give it a go so i did but temp hit 65-70 celcius pretty quickly .
I changed volt to 1.30v ,
frequency to 333 MHz
multiplier to 0.0x ,
CAS latency to 5.0 ,
RAS to CAS latency to 5 ,
RAS Prechange to 5
and Cycle time to 15 ,
temperature heated up a lot . My rig is :
Motherboard :gigabyte ep35-ds3r .
CPU:Intel e7200
GPU:Nvidia 9800GT
OS:Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

Also my BIOS seems to be a bit different from most . I have two columns of texts , first is the normal stuff second is the exit and save styles . My CPU-Z report :
Thanks in advance .

  1. First:
    Shadow's Gigabyte motherboard OC guide:
    It's for an EP35-DS3L but all the Gigabyte Core2 BIOS's are similar.

    Take memory settings off Auto and set the System Mem Mult to 2.0.

    Now start pushing the FSB upward.

    You will need better than stock cooling to go much higher than about 3.0 GHz.

    Keep your core voltage under 1.45 volts and your load temps under 70 C.
  2. The interface between your CPU and cooler is critical, too. If your cooler is installed using a cheap thermal pad, you can easily encounter problems when you start overclocking. Get some high performance thermal paste (Arctic Silver 5 is a perennial favorite), carefully clean and polish your CPU and heat sink, neatly install a very thin layer of paste and give it another try.
