E4500 FSB 230 max

Hi.

I have an overclocking question.

I overclocked my intel E4500 dual core processor with 2200 Mhz to 2500 Mhz.
There is no option for changing the multiplier in the bios so I guess it's fixed to 11.
After I change the FSB to 235 computer starts with black screen but when i restart it changes the FSB back to 200 and starts normally.
FSB 230 is an upper limit it seems.
The temperature on 2500 Mhz doesn't go above 60 as I checked loading it with Prime95 and measuring temp with Core Temp program.
The processor is cooled by intel stock cooler.
I'm planning on putting additional vents inside.
It seems I have room for two additional.
Is that a good idea?

I wonder if there is a way of overclockin it more without it restarting my bios settings.

Thanks for the answers.

You need to post your system specs. No way to suggest where to start without knowing what motherboard you have.

+1. We need mobo, psu, hdd, ram, etc. You will not get too far on the stock cooler. The case fans are a good idea but a hyper 212+ cooler or better is best.

What OS? 1 GB of RAM is pretty low. You might see more of a speed increase by upgrading to at least 2 - 4gb.

Thank you for the answer.
The OS is windows XP service pack 3.
Buying additional hardware is not an option for me at the moment.
I'm looking for a cheap and easy way to increase computer performance.
I tried some fixes from the internet like increasing the page file, freeing up ram etc.
There is some improvement but I'm looking to speed up more.
Is there a way without hardware purchase?

Thanks

AFter looking up that board I would say that you have about maxed out that setup at 230FSB. Even that is pushing it for that motherboard so enjoy what you can get. I would agree that saving for 2GB of ram total is the best possible upgrade for you.

You could always try to do a BSEL mod or a hard mod on the board for voltage along with using setfsb in windows to raise your clockspeed.

Ok.

What is a BSEL mode and how would I perform this procedure?

Did you even take 1 second of your time to check the specs of his parts to see that not only his board does not support FSB CPUs over 800, but it is entry level and would likely be nearly impossible to get a higher FSB considering it is a P945 chipset. Big swing and a miss...

Your motherboard cannot handle the 1066FSB that the BSEL mod would force it to run. You could try clockgen, but that board is just not meant for overclocking, never mind the rest of your hardware. Other than optimizing your OS and raising the FSB to the 230 that it seems to allow you, you have pretty much maxxed out what your PC will allow in terms of overclocking.

I've had success doing BSEL mods on Dell OEM boards that only "support" 800fsb. Worst-case he can take it off. Its not like he's doing a soldering mod.
