Put down what you have your E4300 configured as (FSB & VCORE)

3.00GHz @ 334 FSB on DS3
Vcore 1.35v
MCH +0.1v
FSB +0.1v

My settings are the same as Feilong's, except my vcore is 1.375. I am using a rev. 2.0 DS3 MB.

ASUS P5N-E SLI motherboard
2.80GHz @ 8x CPU multiplier
350 FSB (1400 QDR)
Vcore 1.325v

3.15 350x9
1.35v
P5B-D

Has been as high as 3.5Ghz with significant v increase, but it doesnt yield any more real world performance.

There :)

My E2160 (just an E4300 with half cache) runs at 3.2GHz (355x9) with 1.4v bios. CPUZ reads 1.38v idle and 1.36v under load.
I can take it to 3.45GHz at 1.5v (drops to about 1.45v under load).
I use a P35-DS3P gigabyte mobo with 2 sticks of kingmax ddr2 800 value memory (very cheap).

Gigabyte DS3 rev 2.0

8 x 375 FSB (3.0GHz)

vcore = 1.3375

MCH = +0.1v

FSB = +0.1v


Great performance, and as an added bonus, I can run this fanless with my Scythe Ninja and Antec 900 case.

you can suerely lower your MCH/FSB voltage at those speeds
Try it
Also getting 3GHz at 9x333 will get you better cooling on the system, and give you room to overclock your E4300 more on same vcore maybe

You won't notice any application gain increasing FSB/memory bandwidth compared to CPU frequency. In fact, with C2D, CPU speed is more important on overall performance

I'll give those tips a try, thanks. I've been meaning to tinker and test some more, just haven't had the time. I also was thinking about seeing how tight I can get the RAM timings, so lowering the FSB (assuming I leave the memory multi alone) should help with that, too.

I also recently got a 40mm fan for a NB heatsink mod, so that should give me more room, too.

I had originally stopped at 3.0GHz because of temp problems. But some new Shin-Etsu and a HSF reseat dropped them 10 degrees to 62C (TAT load). The chip I got seems to be a good one, though, and I wonder if I can get to 3.2GHz or higher.

Let us know your overclock
And, what batch do you have (Q6xx)?

Hi!

Just a noob and this is my first post. This my first time to OC a C2D and third overall (Celeron 300A and Athlon XP 2500+ were my first and second) and need your help on some questions.

1. I'm using a P5K Asus motherboard and DDR2667 from Kingston (haven't heard of this but its using Hynix Mem modules, might be a rebadged) and a E4300 (Batch Q7XXXX). Anybody here tried OC'ing using this setup? Can you help provide settings youve used?

2. For E4300 hitting at 2.4 Ghz, can I keep the stock HSF that came with it?

Please go easy on me guys. Thanks!

450x8 @1.5vcore, PCI-E voltage +0.2 (pcie voltage is my fsb & mch voltage on my board)
on an MSI 975X Platimum PowerUP Edition

i'm confused as to weather this processor is an ES or not, i bought it in a retail box, the ihs said e4300 (that has since been thrown out) but no board detects this processor properly, cpu z says it is an e4300 but it overclocks like an ES... meh :D 

(it is a bit odd when you set 8x450 in the bios and in windows some programs give you stuff like fsb: 100 multi: 36)

Gigabyte DS3 rev 3.0 F12 Bios

9 x 312 FSB (2.8GHz)

vcore = 1.3375

MCH = +0.1v

FSB = +0.1v

idle ~23-25C
load ~51-54C

batch: Q641A296

I figure a 1ghz OC is fine for now, I'll try for more later when it doesent feel "fast" anymore.

dude those temps are WAYYYY to high, yopu'll kill your chip if those temps are right
July 3, 2007 11:43:03 AM

Aren't those voltages and temps a bit high, Lashton? I could probably get to 3.2 on mine, but I was afraid of a short life if I ran that hot all the time...

lol its not mine, its someone elses

DOH! lol, now I see your message at the bottom. Didn't notice the post was a quote. I agree, temps are way too high on Madwolf's rig.

TyroneShoelaces and lashton, so what would be the max temp on TAT (either core) at 100% load? I can get my e4300 at 3kGHz+ but the temps eventually reach 70C sometimes 72C.

So now I set it at 2.7GHz and get 65C at 100% load.

What do you guys think is safe? I am running Air cooling.
July 5, 2007 3:52:45 PM

I would try to keep it at 70C or lower.

Javimars, please...
Either those are Tcase temps, you have special cooling, or they're wrong.
How many times do I have to ask you to post Tjunction value from Core Temp 0.95? I'm starting to believe that you never downloaded core temp in the first place.
