Intel Pentium dual-core e5200 processor

Specs: Windows 7

I was reading posts for E5200 here in your forum and was wondering about overclocking my e5200 to 3.5. My mobo is Asus P5QPL-AM. I got 3 gig memory, 2 gig apacer and 1 gig kingston. vidcard HD3650. I tried the overclocking profiles from the Mobo at 20% and got it to run at 3.01. I read a lot of post that e5200 can be overclocked to 3.5. I was hoping that all of the masters in overclocking in this forum can shed a light.

Help me please. Thanks

You posted this question in the Windows 7 forum, please request that the post be moved to 'CPU/Overclocking' Forum, or repost this question there to get your answer. Also include your settings that you used and your current temperatures and voltages (use Speedfan or similar as well as your numbers in your BIOS).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.

don't use overclocking profile, set it to manual.
There are settings u need to set first
-lock pci e @ 100mhz
-lock pci @ 33.33mhz
-disable spread spectrum
-disable EIST aka speestep
-disable cpu enhanced halt CIE
-disable cia 2

e5200 2.5ghz fsb 800(200) 12.5 mult vcore 0.85-1.3625v. I assume u have ddr2 800. Underclock ram to ddr2 400 then pump fsb to 1333 (333 x 4) reduce cpu multi to 11 now cpu should run at 3663mhz and ram should run @ ddr2 667 (333 x 2) save settings and restart the system, if the system fail to boot disconnect power cord and either remove cmos battery or cmos jumper (the board manual should xplain). If the system boot fine but fail to load os try to icrease cpu voltage (0.1v).

edit: (260 x 12.5) this is your current settings right? (333 x 10) 3.3ghz or (333 x 9) 3ghz i believe this will be faster than your current "overclocking profile" settings.
