Overclocking e6300 to 3ghz

I looked at the overclocking guide, but I don't want to go quite as high with my overclock. My components are

Abit AB9
e6300
2GB Wintec AMX ddr2 800
thermaltake aftermarket cooling

I'm having trouble reaching 2.8 through uguru due to reboots at 390FSB. I've ran it at 2.8 in the past and it ran stable without any glitches. I've even bumped my coreV to 1.3750 and there are still problems. Any suggestions?

well, i ran into the same wall you did. at anything over 400 fsb, i get severe instabilities, like 1 second into prime95 dual instances, but at 400 its great. i think your at your systems limits maybe, like me.

I used to have ABIT AB9 PRO.
Same problem like yours; couldn't get past 389FSB.

Now I have Gigabyte DS3 rev.2 with F10 bios and bench-stable at 545FSB @3.815GHZ.

I'm very disappointed at my AB9. Good thing I bought a DS3 ^__^

i know if your hitting 3.8 ghz on e6300 i can at least hit a 4 on the e6400.

what hsf did you use?

Tuniq Tower 120, along with Antec Nine Hundred case, which moves tons of air =)

p180b here with a stock fan.. hoping to get a good hsf since that one is sold out :(

Only air cooling? 8O are you serius?
February 15, 2007 7:20:35 AM

Tuniq Tower 120 is the best air cooler out there, IMHO.

Proven by anandtech review on multiple occasions :
Tuniq Tower 120 compared to many

for $55, it's the best air heat sink you can get *again, IMHO* ^__^

i want it but i cant find it!!! :(  man!!! this sucks. it looks awesome because the fan is inside the hsf ( something i haven't seen before).

now if that hsf will made out of full copper it would totally win.

you know any stores that might have it?

Excuse me but i think you guys are very optimistic here.You should be happy if you reach 3.5 Ghz.
February 15, 2007 7:26:35 AM

... i hit 3.4 on air with stock fan at 57C. i know with this fan it can make it get somewhere up there close to the 4ghz range. Thats just me looking at those reviews :p  ( but i could be wrong)

Optimistic is very important trait for overclocking.
Without it, we would just give up and be satisfied with your last attempt =)

30h6, from overclockersonline.com forum, has his E6300 running at 4.119 GHZ @ 588FSB.


His E6600 is running at 4.85GHZ @ 538FSB.



Yes, 3.5GHz should make most people happy.
But with optimism and some good luck, you can get more out of your system ^__^

BTW, I bought my Tuniq at Xoxide for $55:

The fact that i have the same components as that guy who hit 4+Ghz with his 6300 doesnt mean i can do it too.And being lucky when OCing is more important than being optimistic considering the number of things that affect your tries.But maybe you get lucky after all. 8)

PS i would very much like to see how he managed to run DDR2-6400 to those bus speeds.

I forgot to mention that he's running on dry ice ^__^
Not your "average" rig :p 
He mentioned that he was only able to run abour 520-540FSB on air. Then after he used dry ice with copper tubing and foam shielding for motherboard, then he could get up to 4.1Ghz. And he's using Asus P5B, I'm using DS3.

And you are correct; every overclocking is different. Every CPU, every memory stick, every motherboard is different. If one is lucky enough to hit certain speed, the other person with the same exact parts model is not guaranteed to be able to reach the same result.

He's using Team xTreme memory sticks.
Memory sticks from that company tends to really really overclock very well. Google it. Team Group DDR2 5300 (266MHz) has been reported to run up to DDR2 1100 (550MHz).

I've tried Team Group memory sticks, but unfortunately I bought the one WITHOUT micron D9 chip. It won't even run past its spec. So make sure when you are buying Team Group memory sticks, make sure they have Micron chips =)

My Patriot is branded as PC2 8500, DDR2 1066.
But actually, it's a Patriot PC2 6400 (DDR2 800), BUT hand-picked to run at PC2 8500.

in my screenie, please take a look at the CPU-Z info on the memory :


My "DDR2 800" is able to run DDR2 1200.
I'm trying lower CAS this weekend, hope I can get tighter timing at DDR2 1200

Micron chip > all

Well i havent tried that much but anyway the 6300 (or any other C2D ) can go over 3 Ghz which anyway is quite impressive.Just remember when was the last time we had so OCable CPUs.I have OCZ 6400 sticks and dont think they are that good but go over 450 Mhz leaving me some room for OCing.Ofcourse i dont see any good reason to burn my case at those speeds but just for the fun of it 8)
PS. that is some taskbar you got there :)

Like I said earlier, I got the same problem going faster than 384FSB.
It might help if you post your problem on ABIT forum here on TG :
ABIT FORUM

From what I've read, Abit 9 PRO should be able to hit above 400FSB, but apparently, we both couldn't.....
GOOD LUCK! ^__^

Getting it to 3Ghz is not a problem. Mine is running at 3.4 with no issues and idle the temp is 19C so i am not complaining. I Love Water!

Did they add RAM timings to the new BOIS revisions on the 965-DS3?

The speed out of this system is amazing.
February 15, 2007 11:10:46 PM

I've been working awhile on it now and have finally got it to 2.8 running solid as far as I cant tell. I haven't tried anything higher yet, but at least I finally got it that far. Even if I can't go higher, I would still be happy.
