Can I Overclock An Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 On Stock Cooling?
which burn in test? Currently, prices for modern RAM modules are cheap and, from experience, the small saving made on generic RAM can be more trouble than it's worth. How do I overclock my Core 2 Duo E6300 to over 3ghz using EVGA NVIDIA 680i mobo Feb 26, 2007 Motherboard for Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 Overclocking Jan 19, 2010 So, what I need to know, is it possible to OC under stock cooling, how much performance would I gain, and what specs should I OC to? http://windowsrefund.org/can-i/can-i-use-fan-of-my-dual-core-for-my-core-2-duo-processor.php
Don't put it there, because it's stifling. Nov 10, 2006 Add New Comment You need to be a member to leave a comment. What kind of overclock can I expect for my Core 2 Duo? You'll run one instance for every core in your CPU-- create a copy of the Prime95 folder for each core, and run the executables from those folders. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/195897-29-e6300-stock-cooling

I'm having a hard time pushing past 2.34 Ghz on my Core 2 Duo E6300, and I think that's at least in part due to the ram. The earlier versions of Prime95 would not stress a core2duo CPU, because it was designed for single core processors.
My first jump was from 266.7Mhz to 300Mhz, for a modest jump to 2.1Ghz, and this was handled even by the stock fan, but it made me nervous being so close Fold for UnitedGerbilNation, team 2630. Quote #11 Fri Jan 29, 2010 11:20 am I've had a few E6300's go to 3.6 easy (400*9) with a good HSF, and no voltage bump. I'm sure it has plenty of errors.
And all this with the stock fan. My setup is: AMD Athlon XP [email protected] stock cooling platbrAug 15, 2006, 2:11 AM I just built a Core 2 Duo E6300 system with an Abit AB9. To view these advanced settings in your BIOS, I pressed Ctrol+F1.
As you can see in the screenshot, I've currently gone a bit further for 3.15 GHz.
This is a straight "drop in" replacement for my existing Athlon X2 4800+. For temperature monitoring I found "CoreTemp".CoreTemp is pretty decent, and I would suggest learning to enable the option to show "distance to Tjmax" instead of the "temperature". I've heard tell that some people run it for a little while and are okay if it runs through one iteration of results. Don't worry.
Even if you push the front side bus up to 400 MHz-- what I consider an extreme overclock-- that's still only (400 x 2) or DDR2-800 officially. Your FSB (Front Side Bus) settings might be under the Chipset menu. but i can try to find it...and even take some pics... More than likely, I'll probably upgrade the CPU instead.
It is perhaps worth noting that on my motherboard, the FSB is described with a quad data rate (QDR), so it's actually 1200Mhz, which divided by four is 300Mhz. It is, in fact, the bottom end of the Core 2 Duo line. What I did was that I brought a Q9550 for $180 at microcenter and undervolted it to 1.1 volts. Lapping is the process of sanding down your heatsinks surface.
You should be able to kick it up from 266mhz to 300mhz without much worry though. It also tells you useful information about your cache, mainboard (motherboard) and memory to boot. Sure, I have a laptop if I need one. smacznykonsekJun 6, 2010, 5:59 AM I've got:gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 rev 3.32x Kingstone DDR2 1GB PC5300 (667mHz)C2D E6300 + Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev 2Did overclock the fsb to 400 and ram
See next step. Burn your new settings in with Prime95. Ask a Question See Latest Posts TechSpot Forums are dedicated to computer enthusiasts and power users. However, once running, it's very quick, and the information updates dynamically - even for processors that change speeds based on the amount of processor usage (like SpeedStep).
Don't get cocky.
Honestly, i’ don’t understand what do you mean by that. ¿Could you please explain it to me?. When I take the side of the case off, move the card a little, it works again. It doesn't put nearly as much stress on your CPU as Orthos, but is a good program for monitoring increases in performance. Well, remember i'm a newbie, and i really don't know if this will affect -in a positive or a negative way- whenever i OC.
Unfortunately, that's about all it did, and I rapidly determined that my measly single-core laptop seemed to have better performance, so I needed to do something about it. There are two main ways people go about overclocking. Usually pi is calculated to 1 or 2 million digits for benchmarking purposes.

About the system bus, i found this information @ the intel’s site: http://www.intel.com/products/motherboard/D946GZIS/index.htm "The Intel® Desktop Board D946GZIS delivers an integrated graphics solution in the Essential Series by combining exceptional value correct me if i am wrong...1st step is to slowly increase the fsb of the processor, my question is how do you know when to add a voltage increase?
You might be lucky and find that these cheapies work okay, giving years of trouble-free service. at stock speeds DDR2-533 (1:1) was nearly as fast as DDR2-667 (4:5), but not as fast as DDR2-800 (2:3)). While I am using the E6300, it's currently set a bit higher, but I'm no longer using the stock fan, so let me get to that point in a moment. My PDC E6300 goes up to 333x10.5=3.5GHz without Vcore and it seems like there was room to go (there was no significant temp difference from stock, but I have an OCZ
do we need that much? Intel's stock coolers are fine for running at stock speeds but they aren't necessarily up to the job of keeping down the temperature when a CPU is overclocked. That’s exactly what i think. question : when you reach the max stable frequency with stock voltage you should increase the cpu core voltage.
But in any case, you can't change the actual multiplier - that stays constant. It could be that Sandra is just spazzing. It depends on the Motherboard manufacturer what the bios screen will look like and what your options are. Since you have the E6300, I can fairly safely guarantee you that you have a multiplier of 7, because that's what they use.
But it's such beautiful, magnificent, glorious overkill. For example, an E6320 runs at 1.86Ghz but on stock cooling, it is usually no problem just to bump it up to 2.4 or 2.6 Ghz, putting it at or past
