      right now i'm hovering at 48-52c' on my cpu....
      will that be ok ? because i'm trying to remain as compact as possible because this is a lan party computer that i carry around.

      Hi JM,
      I have been reading about overclocking the past days, and I am interested to start overclocking.
      Below are the specs of my PC:
      CPU: IntelĀ® E5200 2.5GHz, 800FSB
      MoB: IntelĀ® Desktop Board DG31PR (G31 Express Chipset)
      Mem: Kingston 2GB 256M x 64-bit DDR2-800 CL-6 200-Pin SODIMM
      VC: Inno3D 9400GT 512 DDR2 DVI 128bit
      Casing: Azzura 2000: 450 Watts, Front Fan : 1 x 90 mm, Back Fan : 1 x 90 mm, Air Duct System : Yes
      OS: Vista x64 Ultimate

      I have no other cooling hardware, except an additional 90mm Fan installed at the lower side.

      I don't want impressive overclocked system, I just want to gain additional performance improvement.
      A little above 3.0 GHz would already be heaven for me.

      I have read the complete article, on this site, but I am pinting you this this page:

      From there, he mentioned on paragraph entitled Overclocking Intel's Pentium Dual-Core E5200, on the third paragraph, that he having the FSB set to 266MHz alone has improved the CPU speed to 3.32 GHz.

      I know that by merely increasing FSB will increase CPU speed as FSB x multiplier = CPU speed. MY question is, do you think my system will be fine if i change my FSB to 266 MHz, and do nothing else?

      With this minimal change (of course I have to actually run test to get the a quantitative value), do you think I would still have to buy another cooling hardware?

      I know I have to test this to actually know, but I thought it's better to get an experts initial view on things before I even start.

      I hope you don't mind my question, in spite of the many post on overclocking. I get too overwhelmed with all the data being mentioned. I just want the simplest, probably one-setting twek to improve my system's performance.

      Thanks alot.
