First time overclocking core2 duo e6550, P5Q Tags: Overclocking Last response: April 2, 2012 7:13 AM in Overclocking Share morganw333 April 2, 2012 2:50:38 AM hi Im a bit of a noob and not really sure where to start as most of the stuff I find on google doesnt really really tell me how just what they got. I have Core 2 Duo E6550 @ 2.33ghz ASUS P5Q motherboard 2x 2gb ddr2 800 ram HIS iceq4 gpu I brought this setup to learn on so no dramas if it blows up lol but could someone run me through the steps at how to overclock this cpu? I only have the stock intel cooler at the moment, I do have a Golden Orb 2 cooler but seem to get lower temps with the stock one. I know the P5Q has all the options to o'c but im just not sure where to start, any tips would be great thanks More about : time overclocking core2 duo e6550 p5q jsc a c 197 K Overclocking April 2, 2012 7:13:28 AM This should be your first stop.

Google is your friend. Don't expect a lot. Your CPU has a relatively high (333 MHz) FSB and a low internal multiplier. I would be surprised if you can get more than a stable 2.8 GHz out of it.
