975XBX and e6300 overclocking help.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello I recently completed my first build with a 975XBX mb and an e6300. I downloaded the intel desktop control panel utility. But, I noticed that I cannot control the cpu control voltage, either in the bios nor the intel desktop utility. So that is my first question, because mine is currently reporting a voltage of 1.4v and I thought I could lower it.

Second question, I currently am overclocked just to 1.9ghz and temps (at idle) are in the picture below. They seem kinda high, even for being on stock cooling. I have reseated the heat sink, which is also stock. I have been seeing people with like 38c idle temps, would a better hs fan really bring it down 15 degrees?

One more thing, I noticed in the Tune > CPU tab, that is where the voltage options are supposed to be, but apparently, from what I have read online, you can only change the voltage of an extreme series process with this board.

My question is: Why did you bother in buying an Intel board? They're not great for overclocking.

I think for that MoBo, you have to go in the BIOS and change the settings there but not before you enable something call "burn-in", that will unlock all the overclocking settings, perhaps is that way? I don't know exactly in your MoBo but at least in my D875PBZLK that was what I had to do in order to achieve that massive 4% overclock back in those days.

Well my overall goal was not to overclock, I just liked some of the other features on the 975xbx. Anyway there are burn in options in the bios, but they didn't turn on anything about the voltage. I only really wanted to overclock a small amount, but was wondering why i'm 50c idle with stock cooling. And if another (better) heat sink would bring it down to what i'm seeing around here (around 38c idle).

Thanks.

You need to do the staple mod.

Actually, the "Bad Axe" boards from Intel are pretty good for overclocking. We sold quite a few of them. I think there are better options now, but they are not too bad, and they occupied the best price/performance slot for a while.

Thanks for the responses. But, are there any comments about my temps? High for stock cooling? How far would a better heat sink bring the temp down? Could I get to around 40c idle?
