Here's a cpu that will fit your mobo and double the cpu power....comes with a hsf.
Do make sure your bios is at the proper level.
Get the proper ram for that machine.....think dual channel.
I hope you have a 64 bit OS.
I was wondering if it was going to be duable to overclock my somewhat ancient machine. I got good video card, so I said to my self, what the hell might as well give it a chance. My Specs:
Power Supply - 550w
Motherboard - Asus P5Q SE PLUS /P45/ LGA775
RAM - KIT 2x2gb DDR2 SATA2/16MB 1066+ plus 2gb DDR2 800 Kingston
HDD - 500GB Hitachi sata2/16mb
Video - 7850 HD Radeon
CPU - C2 Duo E7400 /2.8Gz/
CPU Fan - E33681-001
My question - Can I overcloack with my motherboard in the first place? Can I overclock the CPU up to 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 with the same fan? If not should I change it? Or should I just buy a new better CPU that is still supported by my old motherboard?
I jst want to squeeze as much performce out of the machine as possible.
Thanks to everybody in advance!
