Can i overclock with XTU on HP z400 and xw8400 ?

Hello guys,


I just got a HP z400 with x5550 CPU ( soon to be upgraded to x5690 )  and  a xw8400 with dual x5365 CPUs.

HP bios does not provide any settings for overclock so i was thinking of using XTU or any other similar program to overclock.


Any recommendations is it possible ?


Thank you

  • I've never tried overclocking those systems.  You could set the processors to run at their max turbo frequency all the time.  However, I wouldn't recommend doing that with the stock heatsinks because you'll burn up the motherboard.

  • Can you recommend an after market heatsink ?. I have also added a fan at the front of the case

  • I am converting the workstations to Gaming PCs
