overclock the e7200

clipped from www.xbitlabs.com
the Core 2 Duo E7200 has a 266MHz FSB and, consequently, a rather high frequency multiplier, 9.5x.
You won’t have to lift the FSB frequency too high when overclocking the new CPU and you can achieve good results on any mainboard.

At a voltage of 1.4V, which is quite safe for continuous use of a Wolfdale, our CPU was stable at a clock rate of 3.9GHz.

Take note that the CPUZ utility reports a core voltage of 1.344V. It’s not an error. The screenshot was taken under load (Prime95 utility), so you see the Vdroop effect here.

noted in our previous reviews that Wolfdale series CPUs responds with increased overclockability to an increase in the core voltage. The Core 2 Duo E7200 is not an exception. Increasing the voltage more you can achieve even higher CPU clock rates. Just don’t forget about proper cooling.
