“The ASUS P5N-E SLI is like a completely new motherboard with this updated BIOS revision. Overclocking has never been easier and the fact that users have the option to run the Core 2 Duo E6400 at 3.50GHz with DDR2-800 memory is impressive! The ASUS P5N-E SLI really is an ideal motherboard for not only the cheaper low-end Core 2 Duo processors, but also the more expensive versions such as the E6700. Given the board can match the $400 US Striker Extreme in terms of performance, there is really no need to spend more than $110 US to receive ultimate performance.”

Legion Hardware has published their “Seriously Easy E6400 Overclocking Guide“. All it takes is a E6400 and a P5N-E SLI, and you can get overclocking. They offer 2 ways even, one that lets you leave the memory alone and a second that shows you how to pump up the memory as well. It just doesn’t get any easier without getting someone else to do it for you.
