88% overclock anyone? My system:

CPU: Core2Duo E6300 1.86GHz @ 3.5GHz
RAM: Patriot 2 x 1GB PC8500 (5-5-5-9)
MOBO: Gigabyte P965-DQ6 v2
GFX: ATI X1950XT Pro 512MB
PWR Supply: ThermalTake 550W
Case: Antec Ninehundred
-Fans: 4x Antec 120mm & 1x Antec 200mm fan

What is the known high overclock on this system?

I only increased core voltage by .05 from stock btw :)  At full load under Toast stress test + Prime95 torture test it runs around 38-41C on the stock cooler at >87% of the fans max speed. Strictly air cooled.

Used Gigabyte's ETC software, CPU-Z, Speedfan for specs and temps.

most people go for not more than 3.2GHz for 24/7 system and max should be around 3.5Ghz on E6300 (500fsb).

Depending on the mobo, if u can reach higher than 500fsb sure u can shoot the fsb to the moon. DFI Infinity 965P can do that no problem :D 

Looks like u got a good CPU that can run at low voltage at such high clock...and u got low temps there..nice! But u definately need a good cooling at the NB.

i tried 3.4Ghz on my system and that would be the max for me. i need 1.45v to run at that speed with my Hyper48 cooler, the temp still go high 70 degrees at load.

nice, what cooler are you using? i think i might have missed it... thats pretty good, but my e4300 is running at 3.73ghz and is slightly cooler than yours, i have a thermalright ultra 120, still running at stock volts too, using a dfi rd600 mobo

I'm running 3.01GHz now.

It's stable 24hrs. :D 

I don't really have time to test it further, but I can probably reach 3.2 easily.

yeah 3.2ghz is very likely to achieve using a good OC rams with micron chips.

what temps are u getting @3.7Ghz using Ultra 120?

im using Coolermaster Hyper48. my next cooler upgrade would be the Thermalright IFX-14!! :D

Are you talking about the rd600? Because that uses ati's sb600 northbridge, not the 965p northbridge, though it should get the highest possible clocks ***if you properly cool it*** It uses a pathetic hung of copper, so though it can reach insanse fsbs, that won't mean anything until you watercool it since it doesn't have heatpipes. Then I think perhaps 530fsb may be possible, if you get lucky, slightly more, or slightly less, but in the ball park of a bit above 500

And here's the 975x infinity, but there isn't a p965 infinity by dfi

no it aint.

There is DFI Infinity 965P.

take a proper look at this:

Well it's not for sale at newegg currently anyways

yep. have to wait for sometime if u want the mobo..

not sure when it will be released to retail stores.

bios temp of 42oC under full load and TJ of 76oC under full load, sure, its over the limit for safe which is 75oC, but not by enough to bother me, also, it is stock volts, which i found truly amazing, also running orthos stable (3x10h runs with cooling time allowed)
April 4, 2007 2:11:53 PM

don't worry, i wasn't, lol i think i am very lucky with that chip though, getting ti to 3.73 on stock volts, i think though having it on stock volts had the advantage of lower heat, but i can't seem to go above 414fsb, it just falls off, it's 100% stable at 414 but as soon as i go 415 or 416 it just stops, no volt change anywhere can fix it :?
April 4, 2007 4:15:19 PM

Yeh Im where you are @3.01 fsb 430. I had to up the voltage a bit in the bios but in windows its showing 1.328v.
April 4, 2007 5:33:25 PM

Yeah im running 24/7 3.01Ghz, on stock fan.
April 4, 2007 5:42:46 PM

what are you idling at with stock fan? lots of ppl seem to use it but i noticed it got warm to the touch at 1.86 and my zalman isnt warm at all
April 4, 2007 7:05:08 PM

at idle core 1 is 58c, and core 2 is 60c, pretty hot i think, but i havnt been bothered to get a decent cooler. I have had this over clock for months 24/7 and no stability problems. I have a antec 900 case, which helps :) 
April 4, 2007 7:34:22 PM

wow for idle that is pretty hot man. Im at 36-42 idle per core and not topping 49c with prime95 and TAT running @60% load per core resulting in 1.75gb page file useage and 100% load on each core. Im using a zalman 9500 i have the antec 900 case too i like it a lot I put my 3 sata hdds in the lower bays and made a wind tunnel in the middle with the stock 120mm on the outside and a 120 100cfm fan on the inside. keeps mobo and video card a lot cooler- my 1950pro idles at like 39c. Check out my pics at www.flickr.com/photos/uscooper I posted some new ones today as i just installed the motherboard and cooler yesterday. I was really surprised i went from a dg965wh intel board and neither xp pro or vista ultimate 64 bit made me reactivate which was nice. My roommates had to reactivate but they changed mobo ram and cpu. I just uninstalled all mobo related drivers before putting the asus in.

My setup

E4300 @ 3.843GHz (9x 427MHz) @ 1.400V
2x1gb Transcend JetRam @ 5-5-5-15 @ 2.1V
BigTyphoon with Silverstone FM121
7600GT
GA-965P-DS3

You'd be surprised if I told you I paid $137 for my E4300 from eBay
$110 for the RAM $55 per stick from NewEgg, I was the first person to review it on NewEgg, and less than 1 week later, NewEgg ran out of stock on Transcend JetRam.
$25 for BigTyphoon, open box from NewEgg, $15 for Silverstone FM121
DS3 motherboard open box for $89.95 from NewEgg
7600GT for $85 after rebate from NewEgg
ChiefMax 650W <--- this junk cost me only $10, I bought off a buddy because he doesn't trust ChiefMax, first he bought it, then he read bad reviews about it, then he wanna get rid of it and I wanted to give it a try. Cheap Generic PSU ... He paid $25 for it, and I got it off him for $10.

But I spent around 3 hours lapping the heatsink ... :( 

Idle - 44C
Full load - 61C

Vcore flucuates 0.06V between idle and full load, pretty stable PSU ... LOL

And yeah, has been running for 6 weeks now without a problem.
