    Just pump it up yhea.

    For a more inteligent advise we'll need some more info about your system, PSU, how much memory, CPU heat sink etc., put that info in your signature.
    Fill your settings in the template found in this post. Ignore the values in it, just fill it with your own instead. If any MIT settings are missing in the templet add them, delete those not applicable to your board. Fill MB suggested settings and those that are currently set.

    Someone will be able to assist you I'm sure.

    Here's a post from a while back about overclocking my E5400:

    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/e540...50/#post305237

    I was only able to reach 3.6GHz for 24/7 use.
    It really is luck of the draw whether you get an exceptional CPU or not.

    Hi Chris,

    Thank you for the link. Using your settings (other than multiplier ,i used 12.5) i got up to 3.33. Booted into windows and Prime95 ran good. Am going to try hit 3.5ghz and torture test it for the night!

    sorry for being such newb but could anyone tell me what the story with the RAM is?

    I understand the limit of my ram is 800mhz, at the moment its (3x266)

    But should i be able to boot if its lower than 800mhz?
    say for example i ended up 2.66x280=744?

    The main story of memory is that not all multipliers work for all FSB frequencues.
    If you can run at 333FSB with lower CPU Ratio you'd have a multiplier for DDR-800 and be able to use it at it's low latency settings for best memory performance.
    Not very likely you can get lower settings for DDR-744 and leaving them as they are is in fact using higher settings, whice may result in (small) degraded.memory performance.

    Hey guys,

    Thanks so much for your advice!

    I went tinkering around with it today and its currently running at 4Ghz and survives IBT'n. Load temps are around 63-64c max. Very happy with it!

    I'll post my settings when my mam gives me back my laptop
