We started off at all default settings to make sure that our test platform was up and running okay.  Using CPU-Z to confirm out BIOS settings we found that our computer was up and running just like a default Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 processor should be.

Image Description

Who wants to run default clock speeds?  Let’s first try overclocking without touching any of the voltages. Note that in the above image the voltage is set to 1.325V, but CPU-Z only reads it as 1.125V on the processor.  Even when increasing the voltage CPU-Z did not detect the increases, so keep this in my when you overvolt the processor.
