How the hell did ELmoISEvil got his x6800 to 4.45Ghz. That is just plain evil, is that the highest or can it be pushed more.

I hear a certain large website is trying for 4.6GHz out of an E6300...

I also hear they'll be lucky to top 4GHz :p

Yes, but I prefer a CPU that can live more than an hour. I know that a Core 2 Duo can handle up to 1.55V for at least a few minutes, but how much longer is anybody's guess.

What might be a more reasonable quesiton is:

How fast can we stably OC an x6800 or qx6700?

When it comes to overclocking potential I'm always paranoid after reading the first few reviews from the big hardware sites... I'm convinced that at some point in the history of benchmarking, sites have been sent pre-tested parts that represent the very best the company has to offer... so while Tom's e6300 would reach 3.6 GHz or whatever... the ones we buy will have more humble overclocking abilities. I'm NOT saying that's the case with the C2D (trust me... I WANT ONE!) but I do believe it happens.

One site somewhere had some unusually good RAM on a test bench that was sent directly to them... they go and order the same product on their own and it has considerably less OC headroom. Coincidence? You tell me.

Tom's last OC adventure actually used an early stepping core that has since been improved.

Just what I was thinking... Unless its Shamino and his might voltages the one overclocking...

Well, I've heard this in the context of Intel CPUs so I assume it probably goes for other parts too, but they have what are called Engineering Samples (ES) which are probably what are given to the media for pre-release benches/testing. These ES models are generally made in small patches and are much more quality ensured than your standard fare, thus you will see such things as increase overclockability.

Nah, d00d, listen: Intel IMPROVES the processor over TIME. Nearly all the engineering samples are pre-release, which means they have zero improvements.

I had a P4 2.2A Engineering Sample that wouldn't get to 2.6GHz stabley.

:0 so what he use liquid cooling.. its not a thing u can do 24/7 lol.

It's cos he's better than everyone.

Anyway, it's nice to see you back and posting again Crashman.

I heard for every dollar you donate to Tom personaly, he updates your post count by 1.


I estimate crashman to have donated more then 39,500 dollars to Tom, hence his post count.

Can he not just donate to me?

I'll give.....sexual favours.

OH you really want to get the "others" involved dont you.....


Man... there goes the thread. Thanks Sheepmonster.
