Howto: Overclock C2Q (quads) And C2D (duals) - A Guide V1.7

Recommended Posts

I read Verran's Guide on overclocking basics of Core 2 Duo chips but wanted to post my own guide. He did a great job, but mine is sort of a different flavor of chocolate. Have a read and see if you find it helpful.

 

Edited on 08-Jun-2008: Guide is now version 1.7

@hardnrg: Glad you like it. Always glad to give back to the community. I wasn't aware of 120mm fans that exceed 1600 RPM. That's really a lot of mass to move that fast when you think of it. How fast and how loud are they fastest ones (probably deltas)?

:withstupid: Indeed. I noticed about half a dozen other posts that you made but haven't had time to read them. Is this all original material that you wrote?

I don't want to reinvent the wheel here, so I'm going to just copy/paste out of wusy's Core2Duo Overlocking Guide -- these are just general hardware guidelines... just because you don't see something in these lists, doesn't mean it won't work.

This is a real nice guide! I should merge some of this into the "other" guide I wrote a couple of months back --> http://forums.overclockersclub.com/index.php?showtopic=68453

Of course it is! :angry2: I do reference other materials in my guide, but provide credit to the original authors.

Hey, I was just asking. Don't take it as an insult. In fact, you should think of it as a compliment. As I'm sure you know, there are a lot of disreputable people that would be delighted to take credit for something like this. It's a very thorough guide and it looks like you spent quite a bit of time on it. You only joined 8 hours ago and most new members don't post epic guides right after joining; they're usually asking how to overclock their Dell's hard drive so they can download faster, so you'll have to excuse my skepticism.

 

No hard feelings? :unsure:

Bleeble, he posted the same thing on like 5 forums though, I found it on [H] so far.

 

 

No hard feelings at all... I guess that stupid angry face icon I used gave the pissed off impression on my part. Thanks for the compliment. Truthfully, I found this place through an unrelated google search and figured it'd be good to post a few threads I put a little time into with the hope that people will find the information useful; it's always good to give something back to the community. @kingdingeling: that's why I posted it and other threads on multiple sites. Just casting a larger net I suppose.
