No, not increments of .5v at a time, that's way too much, that will probably kill your processor instantly; Increments of .025v should be the max.

This perfectly illustrates how guys who have no idea what they're doing can easily fry their rigs by following (bad) advice willy-nilly.

lol generally oc a system is nice but if you have a decent running rig i wouldnt ruin it or better yet why bother to overclock just get a faster cpu saves alot of trail and error and if your not a oc specialist then i would say to you..........

Invest in a better cooling heatsink such as coolermaster or other brands i mentioned coolermaster cause i use thier dual fan heatsink other then this better you're off buying a faster cpu and updating the bios etc then to fiddle with voltages espcecially if you dont have money to rebuild

it is a easy way out to avoid damages due to misjudgement in voltages and fsb speed increases

Just because everyone is doing it doesn't mean it is ment for everyone and from a small increase you are talking about 2.6 bumped to a 3.0 really isn't much just 400mhz increase which would still seems like a 2.6 so im just saying i think it is no big bump in performance and i would leave it alone other wise if upgradeing to a faster cpu

Instead of going through much of what has already been stated. If your dead set on getting into the ART of overclocking, their are plenty of guides for beginners. overclocking for begginers - Google Search Also join one or more of the forums dedicated to overclocking.
Research and do somemore. After market cooling is a must, small increases, lots of patience. learn your bios and some Ram manufacturers have sites to help you with your timings and voltages.
You'll need certian software like cpu-z, gpu-z, Prime95 for stress testing and stability as well as a program to keep track of your temps almost forgot benchmarking programs.
Overclocking was originaly something started because you could buy lesss expensive CPU's and get them to run at the speed of a more expensive one. Good luck and best wishes. Fabe

I'm surprised I never noticed this thread. I'm just going to through in my two cents here.

Overclocking can be dangerous but as long as you through some common sense into the mixture it should go smoothly. I got my E6750 OC'd to 4.0GHz (stable, but way to hot. Dropped to 3.8). You should have no problems with getting it to 3.0GHz, or even 3.2GHz. I'm not on a stock cooler though so your mileage may vary when it comes to heat.

I started overclocking 4 years ago & this is my advise to you...
Most of what you will learn an apply will be learned ALL ON YOUR OWN.
NO ONE can really help you with this as every single system is different, even if the exact same hardware is used!
So do a LOT of Research & reading...
I repeat! Do a LOT of Research & READING!!!
You will learn more this way than any other way when it comes to overclocking your system & the "How To" of how to go about it & where to start.
More importantly you'll learn what not to do!
Nothing will make your heart sink faster than knowing "YOU" killed your system by doing something stupid...

One last point...
Certain hardware part (mobo, cpu, ram, PSU, etc) will work together better than others when it comes to getting a stable overclock.
This will make the diff between a system that fights with you every step of the way, or a system that will overclock effortlessly...

My older system (Badaxe 2 with a E6700) fought with me to get any good speed (3.4GHz & up) out of it!
