Core2Quad 8200 OC Starter

Hi everyone, it has been a while since I've OC'd anything. I'm in need of a little help.

I've got a Core2Quad 8200 I'd like to attempt to OC. I know all about the articles, but I want to give it a shot. It is in a Gateway box right now with an Nforce 730i chipset. I'm in the BIOS and there are no tools to OC in there. Is my first step going to be flashing a new BIOS into it? Can someone point me in the right direction on that chipset? Thanks.

  1. You'll find a lot of info about exactly that here

    I would up the Bus from 333 to 400 and see from there.
  2. that's great info, thanks for dropping that. I'm coming to find that the Gateway Mobo is actually locked and runs DDR2. So, your article here is giving me the idea of maybe just getting an entirely new Mobo on DDR3 and be able to run some OC of that processor.
