Can you give me a full screenshot of your system information? so i can check if your processor supports overclocking.

Im still havent got home but ill post a ss tonight.

Im gonna get a new pc within 6 months.

I know the dual core 2.4 can be overclocked pretty good so why not get some more out of it Smile

I did overclock my graphics card for 240 mhz more

I think 3.0ghz should be possible or even 2.8 im happy aswell.

Its just the thing with the adding volts i am a bit scared of

Actually, it seems like the default voltages of GPUs and CPUs are set with a good amount of headroom available for more power. I can usually overclock with the same voltage or add like a hundreth of a voltage and still have it stable. After a certain voltage, it just causes extra heat and no added performance.

Make sure you have enough cooling power; on my other computer I tried overclocking with a stock fan and it shut off...luckily it had a motherboard sensor that automatically turned the computer off after it hit 90 degrees celsius

Well, you have different kinds of Core 2 Duo's
like:
Core 2 Duo E4300
Core 2 Duo E4400
Core 2 Duo E4500
Core 2 Duo E6300
Core 2 Duo E6320
Core 2 Duo E6400
Core 2 Duo E6420
Core 2 Duo E6600
Core 2 Duo E6550
Core 2 Duo E6700
Core 2 Duo E6750
Core 2 Duo X6800
Core 2 Duo E6850
Core 2 Duo E7400
Core 2 Duo E8200
Core 2 Duo E8300
Core 2 Duo E8400
Core 2 Duo E8500
Core 2 Duo E8600

Those are all the Core 2 Duo's :PSo my question is: Which one do you have?
If you dont know where you can see that do this: start/right click "computer"/properties there you can find the info.

I believe you can overclock the E6400 to 1,35V, with 2.8 to 3.0 Ghz. BUT, you need an aftermarket CPU cooler to overclock. Otherwise your PC will overheat and crash.

Well spend a bit more time about reading and learning about overclocking.

Finaly found enough confidence in myself to start this adventure, make notes and calculations so that i was sure i would "get it".

Installed the software needed (cpu-z, core temp, cpu stress program etc)
Rebooted pc, entered bios.

Trololol cant edit in this bios, all locked, fml.

Fixed new mb from my bro who was getting a new pc, also got his two 2gb ram modules.


Turns out mb doesnt fit, and ram modules run at 800mhz whilst mine can only handle 667mhz.



Haha really need a new pc.
