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 .
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 : http://www.mediafire.com/?emalt34803a7o8i
Thanks in advance .
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.
