his specs:

intel e5700 @3.0ghz
gigabtye g41 s2p

  1. i suggest that he waits till he get a proper cooler and oc it further
  2. Yes i know that but he still want to overclock to atleast 3.2 or 3.3ghz!
  3. theres no arguing with you lol
    here have fun and be careful and always watch the temps
  4. Best answer
    Set volt to auto and raise fsb.
    Run stress tester like intel burn test or orthos to at least 8 hours for stability.
    if not stable then overclocking can wait for your friend to buy a cooler and if stable
    buy a cooler also then
    Since its a small mobo either buy a CM txt3 evo or a closed loop liquid cooler :sol:
  5. Ok thanks you both.i have question i heard before that there is technique in which we have to make small u shaped pin and place to socket of cpu.this make pc to fool to think that fsb is 1333mhz instead 800mhz.what is that method?
