Okay, here's the deal. I'm considering overclocking my CPU (Core 2 Duo E7300), but I have no budget for any new cooling equipment, so I'm stuck with all stock stuff. My question is, can I safely overclock my machine, and how far?
My specs are as follows:
Core 2 Duo E7300 2.66GHz
nVidia n9800 GT
Rosewill Stallion RD400-2-SB 400W
Transcend 2 x 2GB DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
all running at stock settings.
And here is what Core Temp tells me:
I suspect this computer is already running a bit hotter than one with these specs normally would, because my air conditioning doesn't work very well and I keep it in a cabinet (and no, I don't leave it on when the cabinet is closed). Would it be feasible to overclock this machine at all without having to buy any new cooling equipment?
Thanks in advance.
