    Question Just bought the E4300...

    ....and heard that it is one of the most overclockable bargin processors out there and i was curious as to how a guy would go about overclocking this sucker. My current specs are MoBo-P965 neo, Ram-Kingsten DDR2-5200 1gb ram, E4300 processor. ive read the C2D overclocking for beginners but i was curious if theres any differences in the methods in overclocking with this mobo.

    You motherboard is the same chipset as the one in the overclocking guide so it should be quite similar. Best thing to do is suck it and see, the worst that can happen is you need to reset the CMOS. Assuming you dont do anything silly like aim for 5ghz.

    But should shoe a decent o/c

    Your RAM isn't a problem at all. You could get to a 167% overclock without even overclocking the RAM, and without a divider..

    Ok so i tried to find the screens she had in he/she's OC guide and i could find them but i found a FSB slot and when i raised it my computer would turn on for a good 5 minutes then i could turn it back on and it would work fine im guessing it was a reset or something. i think she has P965 mobo not P965 neo. anyways any tips would be appreciated
