    Talking Core 2 Duo E6300 Overclocking Results

    PLEASE NOTE, CPUZ SEEMS TO SAY THE MULTI WAS X6, WHEN INFACT IT WAS X7.

    Its sort of like a Blog I did throught the day.

    Been overclocking this chip all day long, its an outstanding performer.

    Using the following components -

    Intel Core 2 DUO E6300 "LGA775 Conroe" 1.86GHz (1066FSB) - OEM

    Gigabyte GA_965P_DS3 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard

    Scythe Ninja Plus Heatpipe CPU Cooler (Socket 478, 754, 939, 940, LGA755)

    G.Skill 2GB DDR2 LA PC2-5400 (2x1GB) CAS4 Dual Channel Kit

    Despite being held back by my slow RAM, I have so far managed to get the following, with a few voltage adjustments, with better RAM however, I could take it to 3Ghz easy.

    First Attempts - @ 2.6Ghz (speedstep is there hence CPU-Z showing 2.2Ghz)


    After more tweaking - @ 2.66Ghz



    The CPU is cooled by a scythe ninja and at 2.66Ghz doesnt exceed 52c under load. This is with a small voltage increase.

    Im looking to break 20s with this RAM, and then Ill get some HZ, and take it nearer 16s.

    Will do more benching later with 3DMark and so on, anyone have any requests etc.?

    Getting faster, managed 2.8Ghz now (400x7)
    CPU-Z says 2.4Ghz, but thats due to speedstep.

    Memory is starting to hit its boundaries I think now, going to try and squeeze the last drop out of it.



    Again.... Gotta Love it!



    Ive done it, broken 20s on SuperPI, with crap RAM. On air cooling too.



    w00t

    This E6300 wont stop going -



    The best I managed to get out of her was a 17s SuperPI, which I forgot to screeny, but my PI has a record of it so see here -



    This was at 3.46Ghz, a very impressive speed for an E6300 on Air, volts were only raised a tiny bit too. Temperatures when at 3.46Ghz were 46c idle, and didnt exceed 52c under load.

    I have got it now at stock volts at 3.22Ghz. Im damn impressed, and for some cheap GSkill 5300 LA Ram to be running at 460Mhz, its good too. Temps are 40c idle, 47c under load.

    The motherboard is excellent build quality, and has plenty of features.

    Core 2 Duo = FTW.

    Thanks,
    James

    God damn that's impressive.

    When you've got what you want out of it, make sure you run Prime, it's only a real overclock when it can handle Prime on both cores for 24 hours.

    Impressive. An 86% overclock (using the 3.46GHz result) is very impressive. If I can pull that off on my E6600, I will be a happy bunny. What is the DS3 like? I'm just looking for as many opinions on it as possible.

    These cpu's are gonna make awesome folding rigs.
    Holding off for a decent budget board myself.

    Enjoy your new rig

    Thanks chaps,

    The DS3 is an outstanding board, has more than enough options to get a cracking O/C on, for example, I can confirm that the FSB goes up to 600.

    Highest Ive had is near 490-500.

    With some better RAM and watercooling, I would honestly say that 4Ghz is not out of the question with these stunners.

    I would like a confirmation on the max Vcore, as If I can go between 1.4-1.45, I think I can get 3.8Ghz

    Thanks,
    James

    max vcore on a decent air cooler is around 1.55v

    nice to see good clocks from the low end allendales

    btw memory should do tighter timings, ive been running @ 500, 4,4,4,10 @ 2.2v

    this is my team sticks btw

    yes, ive seen people running upto 1.6v through conroes on air cooling (in this heatwave)
    allendales are cooler than the conroes, also im betting you wont hit much more than 3500mhz,
    the chip is probably more than capable but due to chipst limitations, i reckon 500 bus is around the peak

    Just Ran 3DMark05 with my X1900XT-X at stock, and the CPU at 3.22Ghz.



    Going to OC the card soon.

    "awesome" I think comes to mind!

    Why are retailers stocking the E6300 OEM, but none of the retail boxes of an of the processors yet? I'm guessing this OC was done on the OEM?

    How long have you had it for? could only be a day or two! Careful you don't fry it!

    Had it since yesterday(when I did the original post) temps are only just above stock ones (50c under load) and I have got her sitting at 3.22Ghz on stock volts.

    It is an OEM Cpu.

    No chance of frying it really.
