    Overclocking an intel E6420

    Hello everyone,

    I wanted to overclock my Intel Core 2 Duo E6420 processor but I do not know how to do it.
    Here is my configuration:
    Asus P5 B (socket 975)
    core 2 duo E6420
    2 * 1 gb Kingston ram
    8800 GTX 768 MB

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Set the multiplier to x8, The FSB to 400, Ram to Sync mode. (1:1 ratio.)With the ram in sync and the FSB at 400, its running just what your ram is rated for! FSB x Double data rate = 800 Mhz.

    Run Prime95 for stability test and keep an eye on temperature while running. Your memory seems to be 5-5-5-18. take the RAM out of the equation by settings 1:1 ratio and MANUAL timings to 5-5-5-18 (or higher). If its still unstable .. Vcore or NB volt can be the way to make it stable. once your cpu is stable, try to overclock the ram with this timing 4-4-4-12
