Solved How to overclock e5500 Dual Core

August 12, 2015 at 13:36:01
Specs: Windows 8,1
I don't have money to upgrade to a new machine and require assistance in overclocking my machine and GPU as well.

I have a Intel e5500 dual core @2.8 GHz with fan, Gigabyte g41M Combo motherboard 775 socket, max tdp 65W, Windows 8,1 Pro 64 bit os, 3Gig DDR2 Ram PC2 6400 (400Mhz), NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT 1Gig 550MHZ core, 333 memory with a fan, 220g HDD, PSU 300w with fan, The case is big with a big fan on the side, on the front and one at the back which adds up to 6 fans in total.

I use bios for overclocking please provide with step by step and other software required during the overclocking and also duration of time

Thanks

✔ Best Answer
Two important things you need to know - 1.) the faster the FSB, the better the overall performance; 2.) the optimal CPU:DRAM frequency ratio is either 1:1 or 1:2.

Your CPU runs at 800MHz FSB which is 200MHz frequency.
Your CPU default clock settings are 14 x 200MHz = 2800MHz.
Your RAM is DDR2-800 which is 400MHz frequency.
The current CPU:DRAM frequency ratio is therefore 200:400 or 1:2.
Your motherboard supports up to 1333MHz FSB which is 333MHz frequency.

So what you should do is lower the CPU multiplier to 9x, raise the CPU frequency to 333MHz, & lower the RAM frequency to 333MHz. That will change your CPU clock speed to 3000MHz (9x333MHz) at 1333MHz FSB with the CPU:DRAM ratio at 1:1. Your CPU speed will only have increased by 7%, but your FSB speed will have increased by 67%.

In addition to overclocking, if you can swing it, purchase a decent SSD drive about 120GB and migrate your operating system and primary programs to the SSD drive and use your HD for storage. This will help the system feel snappier by loading programs and their features much quicker. It will also make boot up much quicker and make the system generally feel faster.
You did not mention your useage, If you are not seriously gaming, your graphics card should be fine. If you age going to look into overclocking it, wait and do one thing at a time so you can evaluate the changes better. NVidia has performance software available on their website and you can Google your graphics card with the word Overclock and get many examples of what others have tried and get an idea of the range you should look towards. Note that this also builds extra heat so be careful and monitor everything.
As far as cooling is concerned, one or two exhaust fans high up in the rear and rear top and a single front intake fan is about all you should need, even with the overclocking. Remove the side fan(s) because they do not aid in cooling and disrupt the smooth air flow through the case, you want cool air to enter the case low in the front, travel over all components collecting all of the heat and exit high in the rear. Side fans cause eddies in the air flow and cause stagnant air pockets that actually can overheat components. You probably could see this yourself by monitoring your machine during heavy use and then unplugging the side fan and repeating it the next day.
Use CPU-Z and HWMonitor for monitoring your CPU overclock and add GPU-Z when/if you try your graphics OC. Remember you are looking for a moderate increase in performance for a daily use machine, you are not looking to try for any records so stability testing may be as simple as running a few background programs while you are using it heavily, If you do not get any crashes after a week or so, it may be enough to declare it stable for normal use.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I am failing to lower the Ram Frequency, its not optional on bios. Please assist me how I can go about it thanks

Look for RAM multiplier and see if you can set it to 2.0, I think that on this series of Gigabyte MB's the RAM is tied to the CPU base freq. by the multiplier if I remember correctly.

You need to adjust the (G)MCH Frequency Latch & System Memory Multiplier (SPD).
