A lot of articles state that the E6300 requires DDR2 667/800 ram or faster to OC well.

How much of a OC generaly can be achieved with a E6300 and Generic DDR2 533 memory at standard SPD settings if voltage is not taken into account?

Keep in mind that a 1:1 ratio is the target on a C2D platform. That said, it will all depend on how good your RAM is. Some DDR2-533 will run at 667 or higher. If it's really cheap RAM, you may not have much, if any overclocking headroom. If it's decent RAM, and will run at 667.. an E6300 should clock to 2.33GHz before RAM becomes a factor.

Thanks, I wil buy some new DDR2 667 ram.

Price only slightly dearer than DDR2 533.

DDR2 800 a lot more expensive :(
