    Re: Whats the best overclocking core 2 duo?

    apologies gt-r, i hope you do stick around, it's just annoying when people sign up and mega spam to get scan delivery

    in terms of overclocking, i seem to be cursed. i've never been able to overclock my core2duo above 2ghz cos for some reason it just won't boot, even with good memory. (chip is E6300 1.86ghz)
    and now my curse is doubled in that my psu is broken so won't boot first time i have to quickly reset power each time, which the mobo see's as a failed overclock boot so resets each time :@ just wish it would work for folding etc.

    And welcome. As shbris says, we get a lot of people posting very quickly to get their post count up - either to post links for spamming purposes, or to qualify for Scan's offer - and they then disappear.

    As you have already discovered, there is a lot of expertiose here, so... enjoy!

    I had to up the CPU PLL voltage to 1.70V, FSB Termination Voltage to 1.40V and North Bridge Voltage to 1.55V to regain stability in 3dmarks06 but no crashes yet at 3.8ghz. 4ghz is another question though. Going to run p95 all night and see what happens.
