Hi guys, this is my first time to OC'ing CPU, so please, don't too hard on me...
I have E6300 1.86GHz Rev. B2 Conroe.
Idle 40'C and def Vcore is 1.328V.
So far i push a little bit at 2.1GHz (7x300) without changing Vcore and idle temp 45'C.
On BIOS i only change CPU freq (from 266MHz to 300MHz), everything else i put it manual and didn't change anything.
So, i want to ask you guys, what is the safe speed for my cpu without changing Vcore?
I live in HOT place, so i would avoid raising Vcore, because that would make CPU hotter than it should...
i'm pretty sure that i have a good airflow inside the case.
We can't say to u a specific answer or frequency since the stable OC without voltage change depends of the mobo and other components. I only can say that with the stock voltage u can get 400MHz or 500MHz over the stock frequency and stable rig.
Rise the frequency 100MHz or 200MHz per time and do stability test with LinX or OCCT.
As you can see on my rig list, i already push it from 1.86GHz to 2.3Ghz. (+400Mhz)
So far so good, the temps (CPU) are cool (45'C day and 38'C night), play some games and it still stable.
What do you say, on Intel site, it says that my cpu max Vcore is 1.5V, current Vcore 1.328V, should i raise the VCore 1V more?
Download Prime95 and use it to test both for stability and max CPU temperature. I also recommend going into the BIOS in the PC Health menu and setting the CPU Warning Temperature to 70 C. When you exceed that, the system will warn you with BIOS style warning beeps.
