How to OverClock my C2D E7500

Intel core2duo / E7500
May 2, 2012 at 12:40:48
Specs: Windows 7, C2D E7500/2x2 DDR2
i got a Arctic Freezer Pro 7 rev 2 CPU FAN with Antec 450P power supply and c2d e7500 what word in 266mhz with multiplier of 9.

im really new at this, i suggest my cpu should work in multipie of 11x for default and i got 2 sticks of ddr2 connected to my mother board.

im really new, how do i overclock my cpu without performing any damage?

P.S - i got AMD RADEON 6750

Please list the make/model of your motherboard & the speed of your DDR2 RAM.

As mentioned you need to post your motherboard make and model. The ability to overclock and even the settings you will use are dependent on your motherboard and its BIOS.... So we wait...

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

OK, now post the speed of your DDR2 RAM - 533, 667, 800, etc?

dual channel 400MHZ i think.

"dual channel 400MHZ i think"

If you want our help, you need to answer the follow up questions accurately. I'm still not sure if you have DDR2-400 or DDR2-800. Do you know the difference? DDR2-400 runs at 200MHz frequency but it's DDR rating is 400MHz. DDR2-800 runs at 400MHz frequency but it's DDR rating is 800MHz. Confusing the real (frequency) with the bogus (DDR rating) can cause all sorts of problems.

I'm going to give you some suggestions:

Start by temporarily lowering the CPU multiplier to 8x. Increase the CPU frequency from 266MHz (1066MHz FSB) to 400MHz (1600MHz FSB) & configure the RAM to run in sync at 400MHz (800MHz DDR). Lock the PCIe at 100MHz & disable any Spread Spectrum settings (if there are any).

If it works, the CPU will run at 3.2GHz @ 1600MHz FSB with a CPU/DRAM frequency ratio of 1:1. If you want to overclock even higher, try increasing the CPU multipler to 8.5x, 9x, 9.5x, etc. Go one step at a time & be prepared to increase the CPU voltage (if necessary) to stablize the overclock.

CPU-Z write me DRAM Frequency 400MHZ.

ill do the follow you wrote as soon as i'll get back from school.

http://www.hwinfo.com will list the specifications you need so a correct answer can be given.

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....

Adding voltage means adding heat to the system so you only do it at need. You may find that in the steps above that you appear stable for the first few steps and then it will not boot. Then you go back and into BIOS and try it again with a SMALL step up in the Vcore voltage. When you appear to be stable, stress test it. If it freezes or crashes, step it up a bit again while monitoring the temperatures. If you begin to get high temperatures only during the stress test but not during normal use, stop there (OC wise) and continue to monitor the temperatures during normal use and gaming. If your temperatures remain reasonable, stay there, if they get a bit hot occasionally, back down on the multiplier 1/2 step and try a small step down on the Vcore and continue to monitor.

idk why i set the multiplier to 8x and the freq to 400MHZ and when i boot the cpu is still 2.1GH, i tried to disable some features but idk why it isnt working. ill try making volt alittle bit higher.

That will not help you. You are probably not using the "Save Settings and Exit" when you exit your BIOS set up and the changes you are making are not being saved. If the settings are not booting you will get the system begin to boot, and freeze or restart and THEN it may reset to defaults. If you are getting a clean boot but the settings have not updated then they were not properly saved so try them again. It is important to disable Spread Spectrum, C- States, and lock your PCIe to 100MHz as riider mentioned above.
