Overclocking advice
#1
Processor - ASUS P5KPL-AM SE, 2.5GHz Dual Core (Intel E5200)
Graphics Card - Nvidia Geforce 9500GT 1GB
RAM - 2GB Kingston

So I ran FFX fine at 60FPS most of the time, and barely ever going below 50..
But FFX-2 is a whole different story, I'm getting about 34-42 FPS.
I'm just wondering how one would go about overclocking my processor, how much overclocking would make FFX-2 and FFXII work well, and how much overclocking is safe for my processor..?

Any help getting the highest framerate possible would be appreciated.

Currently running on PCSX 0.9.6
Graphics - GSdx 1637 (MSVC 16.00, SSSE3) 0.1.15
Renderer - Direct3D9 (Software)
Interlacing - Blend BBF (Slight blur, 1/2 FPS)
SW Rend. Threads - 2
The only things checked are Texture Filtering and Logarithmic Z

For CPU the settings I have checked are:
EERec
VU0rec
VU1rec
Multi threaded GS mode

u have pretty much similiar pc to mine, but i dont own ff's

Depends what do u mean by safe ??
no one realy can say how much u can overclock it since every single CPU is different,
U can usualy get 3,0 ghz on stock voltage and with box cooling, temp will be high but ok, if u wanna go higher probably u will need better cooling.

What would I do in the BIOS to make it 3.0 GHz while keeping it stable? I've read around that 3.2 GHz is achievable.

all depends on luck ... as i said every piece is different, actually for 3,0 ghz it should be stable without doing anything, for 3,2 i had to rise core voltage a bit.

well personally i am targeting for 4,0 ghz with my e5200 when i will get my cooling which ordered, 3,5 ghz is piece of cake but 4,0 wont be easy but i think i will get it

Which cooling device are you ordering? And I think I'll try for 3.2 GHz first, Prime95 that for a while and see how well FF works with that CPU. If it's not good enough I'll try higher, and eventually I may think of buying a new cooling device.
It says my FSB speed is 800MHz.. I wonder what my multiplier is?

a scythe mugen II isnt that expansive (30 euro)
just wait till u have the 15 bucks extra since the mugen II is one of the best air coolers there is

do keep in mind that a mugen II is massive so enough space is a requirement
