I've been building my own rigs for the longest time now, but never had the courage to overclock. But I'm sure I'm at the right place for advice on how to do this with my current set up. Can someone please walk me through on how to overclock my rig. Here are the specs:
MOBO: EP35-DS3R (bios version F3e)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 (3.0GHz)
RAM: Corsair PC2-6400 (Model: CM2X1024-8500C5) (Timings: 5-5-5-15)
VIDEO CARD: nVidia GeForce 8800 GT
I'm hoping to go to at least 3.5GHz range
Please let me know if any other information is needed.
We are not quite done with it yet, but we are working on a full overclocking guide. Info is all there my typing skill is just lacking,
It's in this thread if you scroll down a bit.
While I can't really give you specfics on OC'ing your P35. I can help with general things. I will refer you to a thread that others and myslef are working on for just this thing....

Ha Ha great minds think alike Der Meister
Ha! even the same page was refrenced...lol
So i thought I'd just follow up with this thread. Can anyone help me OC my CPU to at least 3.5Ghz?
Like adjusting the voltage and FSB if I need to?
the 3.5Ghz will be dependant on the CPU temp....
When Ocing first bump the FSB as much as you can with out touching the voltages. If you reach the top of the FSB and you still have not hit your desired mark then you can start messing with the voltages. Just remember when you mess with the voltages the temp on the CPU and NB will increase
As Der says, when you increase voltage be sure to run SpeedFan concurrently with a stress test (SiSoftSandra works well) of some sort to test temps on the NB and other areas to be sure your CPU and other components are stable.
Post back with some current results and we'll see if we can't help you personally get to 3.5!t
