New rig overclocks

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hey, well i'm building a new rig:
  • Core 2 Duo E6300 1.86ghz
  • 2 x 1GB DDR2 667MHz
  • Coolermaster eXtreme Power 650W PSU
  • 2 x OcUK GeForce 7900 GS 512MB GDDR3
  • Scythe Infinity Heatpipe CPU Cooler
  • Asus P5N32-SLi Deluxe nForce4 SLi X16

I was wondering if any1 could give me an idea of what OC speeds i'm looking at achieving once i get up and running.

Ta muchly, Ashper

Sorry but you're not going to get very far with that motherboard. It is known to hit about 250FSB (Is it C2D compatible at all?) and if you're lucky you can hit 270FSB. That means only 200-300MHz overclock.

10%-15% tops. Core 2 Duo stock is 266MHz FSB, so you might hit 300MHz if very lucky.

nForce4 + Intel is an absolute no-no if you want to overclock. It just won't do it. Sorry

I'd recommend to get an Intel 975X based board, and either run Crossfire on it, or SLI with modded drivers.

Or, just get a single 8800GTS (for about $475 - note..this is the GTS not the expensive GTX - it should be out soon... next week or so).

A good board is the ASUS P5W-DH Deluxe (Crossfire or SLI with modded drivers at x8, x8 bandwidth). That board should take you over 400MHz on the FSB and likely push that CPU over 3.0GHz.

GonX: yes, the board does support C2D.

Oh.. Welcome to the forum also

Yeah, those things are often hard to figure out. I mean, that board looks very nice indeed, and at stock you will have good performance. Too bad it just does not overclock well

Can you still exchange it?

Welcome. Really good to hear you didn't buy it yet. I have the ASUS P5W-DH Deluxe. It's a pretty nice board.

Since you have not bought it yet, can you give us more details about the parts? I would like to know which brand of RAM you're looking at most specifically. For the E6300, I would recommend DDR2 800 RAM, or good DDR2 667 RAM that can hit beyond DDR2 667 speeds (like the Crucial Ballistix).

Also, I am not a big fan of Coolermaster for the PSU choice.

In short, what's your budget for these parst

  • Core 2 Duo E6300 1.86ghz - Skt775
  • 2 x Ebuyer 1GB DDR2 667MHz PC2-5400 240pin Extra Value Ram
  • Coolermaster eXtreme Power 650W PSU - ATX 12V V2.01 120mm Fan 20+4pin
  • 2 x OcUK GeForce 7900 GS 512MB GDDR3 TV-Out/Dual DVI (PCI-Express)
  • Scythe Infinity Heatpipe CPU Cooler (Socket 478, 775, AM2, 754, 939, 940)
  • Asus P5N32-SLi Deluxe nForce4 SLi X16 (Socket 775) PCI-Express Motherboard

I know thats not what you wanted to hear for the RAM, but i'm at budget now (getting a case, monitor and other stuff but didn't bother to mention them).

All i want to do is get the E6300 above 2ghz really, if it can achieve that i'll be happy. Maby when i have more money i can get better stuff but for the moment i'm really limited (damn university fees!!!)
