E6300 Overclocking!

I'm getting an E6300.

At what point do you think cpu heat will be an issue if I try to OC it?

How far will I get on stock cooling, lapped stock cooling and on a Tuniq Tower 120?

They say that the chips don't make too much heat so I wanna know if I should get the Tuniq Tower or not.

BTW I'm getting an Asus P5W DH Deluxe (probably the best mobo out to OC a Conroe)

  1. You can probably go a bit faster than 2.5Ghz with an aftermarket solution, but that's just my oppinion.
  2. Ig you hit 3ghz on stock consider yourself VERY lucky. All the reviews i have seen (3 or 4) the highest was about 2.6. That was with the same exact mobo also on stock cooling.
  3. E6300 = 7*266FSB

    That board goes to a max of abut 450FSB.
    That then equals 7 * 450FSB = 3150MHz.
    That would be about the max you could achive.

    You wont see 5GHz with water thats just stupid.
    For evey 10C you lower your CPU you get about 1-3% more oc.
    It actualy depends on CPU you could get nothing actualy with water. It's just important to keep your temps down so you dont risk your CPU oveheating or shortening its life.

    Tuniq Tower will be just fine, if you dont up the voltage too much.

    I would suggest you to get the 6400 it's just a bit higher priced and has a multyplier of 8 meaning it could go 8 * 450 = 3600MHz.
    Overclocking is no sure bet, no one knows what you will get.
    Maybe you get it to 2.5 or maybe you get it to 4GHz I wouldnt expect it above that (You would need a sub zero cooling like liquid nitrogen to get it to 5GHz).

    It is a good board for ocing a Conroe.
    But you have an Allendale - and for them, the Gigabyte DS3 and DS4 is better.
    Check xtremesystems, you'll see many hit 450+ with that board; the highest (though absolutely unstable) was 535x4=2140 MHz FSB 8O :D
