    Im a little used to overclocking , i use evga precision to accelerate m
    gpu a little and i find it very simple
    But overclocking a cpu is much different , i heard that the only way t
    overclock a cpu on a 775 motherboard is through the bios
    Is there an easier way tho ?
    something like intel precision " tho it doesnt exist " but a progra
    that can measure your cpu temps and gives you the option to overclock i

    im really not planning to do it through the bios because i cant reall
    tell if i will risk frying my cpu
    Intel Dual core e7500 2.93 ghz
    I would like to pull it up to 3.2 gh

    You can bump the CPU up to 3.0Ghz by setting the FSB to 273Mhz. I woul
    not recommend going beyond 3.0Ghz, unless you change the stoc
    heatsink/fan to something beefier

    I doubt it.

    The best you can probably do safely on that CPU is ~3.8Ghz, which wil
    give ya a bit of a boost. But again I wouldn't try it with a stoc
