Hi there!

I want to overclock my Core 2 Duo E7400 to a stable speed, but I don't know what other stuff to change in the BIOS. I've done this before, and I just changed the FSB and multiplier and set everything else on auto. I didn't notice any increase in performance at all. In fact, it made my PC run slower.

So, what specific settings should I change in my BIOS?

Overclocking will generate more heat. Have you got enough cooling capacity in place to take care of that problem. Overheated components will run slower and die quicker.

Well, when I overclocked to 3.31 GHz  (just changed the FSB and multiplier, disabled speedstep and C1E and left everything else on auto) on the stock cooler, my temps were like 40C to 45C

Sounds like a reasonable temp.

Yeah, but the question is, should I set everything else on auto (RAM speed etc)?

Sorry, I can't advise you. I don't overclock my system.

If you cannot be courteous...to those who attempt to render assistance to you...I suggest that you take into account the fact that you are unable to solve the questions you posted...and not be disparaging to members who reply...who happen to be in that same boat, "unable to resolve questions posed."

 

The attitude manifested surely won't encourage anyone to post any answers to your situation, IMO....that's known as a "self-inflicted wound" by some of us.

He didn't even attempt to render assistance to me. He did nothing but provide knowledge that isn't related to my problem.

Besides, who does that thing anyway?

Goes to a topic on how to overclock a CPU, gives random knowledge and warnings about overclocking, then says he cannot help me because he doesn't overclock his system.
