Hey, Ive been seeing people OC this up to 4ghz ! Im aiming for 3.5ghz and before I give it a shot I would like someone to give me some good settings for my current setup. Im pretty computer savy its just, ive only OC'd once before and it was with a differenct cpu and mobo.
Go through the guides. Then take your core voltage off Auto and set your memory voltage to factory recommended values. Change the System Memory Multiplier (or whatever your BIOS calls it) from AUTO to 2.00, 2.00B, or 2.00D - whichever you need to set the Memory Frequency to twice the FSB. Then when you increase the FSB, the memory clock will rise in in proportion with it. At an FSB of 200 MHz, your memory clock should be at 400 MHz.
Download CPU-Z to check your FSB:RAM ratio. It should be a 1:1 ratio.
Keep you voltage under 1.45 volts and your reported core temps under 70 C.
The best I was able to get out of my E5200 in a GA-EP35-DS3P motherboard was 3.78 GHz. I was quite a ways from max core voltage and max core temps. The CPU core just would not go faster.
