First time OC, would appreciate help.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So I've been looking around and finding all sorts of information on OCing this e6300 but I'd like a few specific details before I try anything.

Here is the system I've built:

e6300 - stock fan/heatsink
DP965LT motherboard
1GB Centon PC2-5300 (667MHz) DDR2

It's in a cheap case with three 80mm fans. One front mounted intake, one rear exhaust and one side mounted intake blowing in between the CPU and video card.

What I want to do is get a little feel for overclocking before I get better cooling and AS5, of course.

I've tried out Intel's Desktop Utility software which would supposedly let me monitor my CPU temp but that didn't work so I'm looking for recommendations for monitoring this rig's temperatures and any other tips you gents might want to give me.

Thanks.

a good tool that i found useful in the pass is MBM or mother board moniter.. there is another one that a lot of people like as well i think its called everest or something to that sorts .. these programs can be uses to moniter your temps really easy also what i would do if i were you is scroll to the top of the screen and click USER CP then on the left look for EDIT SYSTEM SPECS.. go head and fill all your system specs in .. it will help us help you ..

I seriously doubt that you'll be able to overclock with that motherboard, Intel MoBos are not specifically made for overclocking, unless is a high-end one and that one doesn't seem like it's one of 'em.

Neither of those worked for me so I'm using CoreTemp. I added my system info, thanks for pointing that out.

I also got some AS5 but I guess I applied it wrong because my temp went up by about 2 degrees. And I find it odd that CoreTemp is telling me I'm running at about 82-85 degrees C.

You need to turn off your computer immediately and redo your thermal paste. That temp is high enough to cause lasting damage to the chip!

Yeah, I really messed up the paste. The fan's binding was messed up so the paste didn't spread out at all. Down to 47-48 degrees per core. 85 degree Tjunction (?)

Err...47-48 degrees idle...seems like it can get up to 60 when it's busy.

Yeah...I'm wondering why it's so hot even with stock cooling. I haven't OC'd it and it's running at about 50c idle...
