E6300 2.8Ghz wolfdale

hi, i have my E6300 running at 4ghz, its temperature is usually at 30 Celsius at idle and usually at 50 Celsius while gaming. im using stock intel cooling. my question is, isnt it supposed to be overheating since its on stock cooling? and my voltages are all stock, ive only increased the FSB so far. what is the usual limit of the e6300 chips?? or do i have a special case where i could push on way further past 4.0ghz with some better cooling.

my system has never crashed, and im just a bit worried about pushing it further until i get better cooling.

specs:
-ASUS P5K-PREMIUM-WIFI AP
-MUSHKIN DDR2 6400
-MSI 4870 1GB- runs at 50 Celsius on idle and 60 Celsius at 100% load
-E6300 @ 2.8 overclocked to 4.0ghz
-ANTEC 200 WITH 3 120MM FANS

um that sounds like an incredible chip if those temp readings are accurate, did you try measuring the temps through CPU-Z hardware monitor? Run Prime 95 and look at the Core temps in that program. Have you ran Prime 95 to stress test it at 4ghz? If you are only hitting 50C with stock cooling in Prime 95 I want to know what cooler you have lol :)  but yeah, I would suggest getting another cooler for overclocking further unless you believe those temperatures to be true, make sure everything in your PC is hooked up correctly and do some research, see if other people are having temp reading problems with your motherboard as well. I have an E8500 core 2 duo and it hits about 53C at 3.86ghz with 1.31 vcore in Cpu-Z so it may be that your motherboard is giving you false readings on your temps?

That's not surprising since the new stepping e5200 RO stepping can hit that on stock voltage. The way I see this chip is a way to fool the consumers into manufacturing the e5200 in a diffferent way.

This chip isn't impressive at all when they already had a chip that was running about the same performance years prior to it.

1. What software are you using for the temps?

2. VID of the CPU?

cpu vid?? whats that? i ran prime 95 for 3 hours, from the time i posted this to now, and temps peaked at 64 degrees, checked temps using cpu-z and SIW, both around same.....cooling is stock, some thin intel cooler.

Nice! The E5x00 and E6x00 PentiumDual Wolfdale chips run very cool anyways, but you got a very good batch! :D

Yes, indeed. The best I was able to do with my E5200 was "only" 3.78 GHz. Running my vcore at 1.6 volts didn't help.

@JSC

what stepping do you have?

Download CoreTemp and look under "VID". The "VID" is basically the the stock voltage for the CPU. Check remps with RealTemp, all/most other temp monitoring software are known to be off.

R0. Mine just has a pretty high VID - 1.2875 volts. It's just the luck of the draw. :(

OUCH! LMFAO! Even my MO stepping can reah higher than that. Well yes, you got a bad chip cause I know of people reaching 4 ghz easily on stock voltage.

e6300 is really an incredible processor, i OCed on my friend's system it to 4.2ghz on ASUS P5QLD-PRO with 1.42v and temps are 38 idle, and 55 to 65 full load or gaming

According to http://ark.intel.com/products/41493/Intel-Pentium-Proce...(2M-Cache-2_80-GHz-1066-MHz-FSB) the VID voltage for this processor (Wolfdale E6300 2.8 GHz) is anywhere from 0.8500 V - 1.3625 V. Wonder what that means, since they also state that 'suggested customer price' is anywhere from $74 - $209. Strange.
