JGJTan Icon : (05 July 2018 - 10:07 AM) So this has been a while! It's @jgjtan and @leftyy here having a nostalgia trip. We hope you all have been having a great time so far! Miss you, be back in another 5-10 years. (Or find me on social media -- it's not that hard.)
MoldyRaven Icon : (07 November 2017 - 10:03 AM) Back again after 14 years! Good to see this still up.

ticktockclok Icon : (08 October 2017 - 11:26 PM) Just thought of this place, and figured I would try to log in. I last posted 10 years ago. Hello to anyone out there - especially those from way back!
Res Icon : (06 October 2017 - 03:11 AM) As well as things can be, good to hear from you all :D!!! Much love all around.
X Zolon Icon : (05 October 2017 - 05:02 AM) Strange. I was thinking about it around the same time. Just didn't come back until now. Hope everyone is well.
Glammeress Icon : (16 July 2017 - 12:48 AM) Just thinking about this place, like out of nowhere. Hope everyone is well.
Rylkan Icon : (09 July 2017 - 04:07 PM) Not bad. Just finishing up grad school. Which means I am looking for distractions from writing. :p
Phieta Icon : (09 July 2017 - 05:06 AM) Still flying, so to speak. How goes with you?
Rylkan Icon : (09 July 2017 - 02:42 AM) I am even more amazed someone replied to this in less than a few month timescale. Hi! How goes?
Phieta Icon : (08 July 2017 - 09:43 PM) He does log into GW every month or so to retain leadership, so that's something
Phieta Icon : (08 July 2017 - 09:42 PM) There are several of us! Several!
Rylkan Icon : (08 July 2017 - 06:33 PM) I was actually hoping to get in touch with Cspace since its been forever. But it looks like our old leader is lost to the void.
Rylkan Icon : (08 July 2017 - 06:29 PM) In a moment of pure nostalgia, I remembered this site. Seeing any shouts from this year is insane.
asyluman Icon : (17 January 2017 - 02:45 AM) i only JUST started playing FFVIII
asyluman Icon : (17 January 2017 - 02:45 AM) woah are people still here
Phieta Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:05 AM) Apparently I joined SeeD 14 years ago today.
Dragonman Icon : (10 September 2016 - 02:29 AM) Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive, but to be young was very heaven
x.. Icon : (13 July 2016 - 01:14 AM) idk. both of those are complicated questions.

Here's my new PC's specs:

Galaxy Black Mid Tower Case with Blue Bubble Light LED Strip (totally shmexy!) - 450W PSU
Intel Pentium Dual Core E6300 2.8GHz Socket 775 2MB Cache
ASUS P5Q SE2 iP45 Motherboard

I was thinking of overclocking the CPU to 3GHz or so.

I know that someone overclocked it to 3.2GHz, but I wouldn't really want or need to go that high.

Would it be effective?

If you have any recommendations for by how much, please post.

It's not that hard to overclock, it's a matter of finding out how to. Let me see if I can dig up some guides on how to overclock your stuff. I think your core is not the Pentium as it is a Core 2 Wolfdale. Let me look it up and get back to you.

Thanks.

The processor thing is strange, since the packaging and everything was labelled as 'Pentium Dual Core'.

Thanks. :thumb:

I enjoy running two/three operating systems at the same time, which takes up a hell of a lot of processing power. :P

Overclocking the CPU you have is really simple, all you need to do is go into the BIOS and raise the Front Side Bus(FSB), just raise it in small increments of like 10-20 and see if it boots fine, do this for a bit then go into windows and stress test it a bit, if it all runs fine repeat the process, once you hit the limit on the voltage your cpu is at I wouldn't recommend pushing it any higher with stock cooling, I think the stock FSB of your CPU is 1066 so I would try like 1333 on stock voltage, my old E6600 ran at that fine.


Although that is all based off my old E6600 and P5N32-SLI Premium setup so I dont know how it will work for you and how your motherboard refers to the FSB and how it measures it...

Yeah, I'm fine with doing it, I was just wondering how effective overclocking this setup would be.

They overclock fairly well. Just don't push it too hard unless you plan on upgrading* in a year or two.
