I am running Windows 7 32bit and I also tried to install the Turbo Key but it does not work on my system.
I don't know if this would help at all but if someone could inform me I would appreciate it. I heard this can get up to 3.66GHz if you up the FSB to 333 but I am looking to only go to 3.52GHz.
I hope someone could walk me through the BIOS settings so I could tweak everything correctly & ensure stability.

I have built some computers before but never had the opportunity to overclock, hopefully someone could walk me through the steps. Thanks.

There is no need at this point to give you individual specific instructions, there are several basic guides here:


You can also serch the net for Core 2 Duo OC guids..there are TONS of them! the more you read up front, the better off you will be when it comes time to get your hands dirty.

However..if you are having trouble understanding anything in them, or your not having luck with them, then be sure to post again.

The second link in particular applies to you, but you might want to browse the first link also.

I also might suggest trying to use the ASUS OC software your first time out, since it's fairly easy to use, and will help you get familiar with things. It should be on a CD that came with your board, or you can download the latest version form ASUS.

The good part is, if a setting doesn't work, you just simply reboot and it should restart. If you change the settings in the bios, sometimes it will freeze up and requires you to reset the bios (Using a jumper on the motherboard) to start to get the PC up and running again.

Once you get comfortable with the software, and find out whats stable for your PC, then I would venture into the bios and make the settings permanent.
