  1. Read the overclocking guide. I did my first overclock on that same motherboard so you should be able to do it too
  2. Overclocking with the stock cooler is a bad idea. If you're not careful you could end up with an Core 2 paperweight
  3. yes it is but not much i oced my e 7500 to 3.6 ghz to run tekken 5 on pcsx2 and it run fine

    This is one of the most popular coolers around. It's not the greatest but the value is certainly there
  5. its too expensive for me .. any other cheap cooler ??
    i want to my overclock my e5400 to 3.2ghz

    If that's too expensive for you then that also means that replacing your processor is also too expensive for you and thus you shouldn't be overclocking at all.

    Overclocking will make a highly playable game more playable but it will not make an unplayable game playable.
  7. i mean its too expensive for a fan ... i think my cheapo procesor costed me around 3k and spending 2k more on it will make it a 5k processor and it will still not give me comparable performance as 5k processors ..
    is it possible to overclock it to 3ghz on stock cooler
    btw. i'm 17 and yeah 2.5k is too expensive for me

    It might be possible but it could also destroy your processor.

    If you can't afford to replace something, don't overclock it.
  9. i think now i'll start saving for my new rig cuz the e5400 cant do any thing
    thanks everyone .
