C2D E7500 overclocking

ok so first off let me say that i have looked at the overclocking guide on Tom's and it didn't help.i have a C2D E7500 in my rig the reason that i am overclocking it is because i also have 2 nvidia 465's in SLI and the E7500 is bottlenecking them so i'm wanting to overclock it so it isn't suck a bad bottleneck(bf3 cpu usage 95-100%,both gpu usage ~30%)my motherboard it an EVGA 122-yw-e173-RX can anyone tell me how to overclock the E7500 on this motherboard(not the TR version either that one i have found guides but the bios is different i want to get my cpu to atleast 3.4Ghz as right now it's on 2.93 at i do not have a stock cooler.i don't know what cooler it is but at idle the cpu is around 45C when room is about 30C

  1. That board supports 1333 FSB, so it should be pretty trivial to get at least 3.67GHz out of that cpu by changing the FSB from 1066 to 1333 (266->333) and increase the voltage of the cpu until it's stable. (OCCT, Prime95, intelburntest, etc)

    You likely could get more out of it too, but that already surpasses your 3.4GHz request. I have a couple E5800s running at 4.0GHz at around 1.40-1.45V, and I used to have a couple E3400s at 3.75GHz or so.

    that is just it i can't find out where in the bios you change the FSB
  3. ok sorry i have been a complete retard for the past day and a half sorry for waisting time :(
