Advice on e6300 DS3 overclock

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Built this system

e6300
Gigabyte 965-ds3
1 gig cosair 533 mhz ram.(from old machine)
300 gig sata
500 watt powersupply.

Overclocked by pumping the frontside bus up to 300mhz. Got up to 2.08 from stock 1.86. Im doubting that I can go much higher with this ram. I am using stock cooling. I am thinking my limiting factor is my ram. Am i correct in this assumption? If I got some good ddr 800. How far safely could I go?

with stock cooling? humm its depends
what thermal compound you useing ect ect

best of buying a good cpu cooler

but i think you will get around 2.4 (if your lucky)
but dont be scared to push more its the teps are under say 45-50c load u can go a bit more if you want.... keep under 55c (load)

Didnt use any thermal compound. Just used the stock cooler. The cooler I believe has thermal material on it. Is that correct?[

You're definitely limited by your RAM. Those CPUs can OC like mad, around 600-1000MHz with little or no effort as long as you have the right components i.e. good RAM. Pick up some DDR2 800 and you should be good to go.

this post will definiately help me as well...im getting 800 RAM DDR2...and a good brand too...good for clocking.

anyways...I need more imformation for overclocking with the bios giving in this Mobo.

ALSO...I need to know whats better, high ram timings but higher FSB or Low Timings but lower FSB. And for the e6300 whats the amount of Mhz for the FSB should you go up by every .5 increase in the mutiplier...to keep it balanced for overall better preformance.
