e6300 overclocking

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
i have an intel core 2 duo e6300 processor. unfortunately, i know next to nothing about overclocking and would not like to destroy my computer. could somebody maybe recommend some settings to me or perhaps explain o'cing in depth or point me in the direction of a good tutorial? here are my specs:


processor: intel core 2 duo e6300

motherboard: gigabyte ga-965p-ds3

ram: crucial ballistix 1gb (2 x 512mb) 240-pin ddr2 sdram ddr2 800 (pc2 6400) dual channel kit

video card (not that this is important, but you never know): 256mb ati x1950pro pci-e

cpu cooler: zalman cnps8000


--i know that it's a fairly good system for overclocking, but i don't kave enough knowledge of it yet and i don't feel like having to look around for a good tutorial.

First off, when you get into your BIOS, you want to make sure to lock PCI / PCI-E busses at 33 / 100 respectively. Failure to do this could result in damage to your PCI / PCI-E hardware.

Next, you want to set the RAM divider to 2.0, meaning your RAM runs at a frequency of 266MHz, which is the same value as the FSB. This will give you greater performance as well as more overclocking headroom.

Then, you want to gradually push up the FSB 5MHz at a time, each time testing for stability with Prime95 or Orthos.

Of course, you want to keep an eye on your temperatures with Intel's Thermal Analysis Tool, which gives you the REAL temperature of your core. You want to keep the temperature under 60°C load, but lower is better.

When your computer starts to become unstable or fails to boot, it's time to raise the vCore. This is the voltage to the CPU and the CPU requires higher amounts of power to run at the higher frequencies. However, with more power comes higher temperature, so watch out.

So, if your computer won't boot, look for the CMOS reset jumpers (there should be a section on this in your motherboard manual, so look out for it) and then when you get into BIOS, repeat all the steps above but raise vCore by 1 level. Doing this should get you more stability and the ability to have a high FSB. If you got a good week CPU (L6**B are generally great overclockers) you should be able to get a decent FSB without needing an increase in vCore.

Once you get to the stage where raising vCore doesn't help with booting, you need to raise your chipset voltage, which I believe is vMCH. Again, only raise it by 1 level until you are stable.

This should get you started.. but there are good threads in the Intel section to get you started even better!

right, right... sorry about that. i realize that it can get kind of annoying, but i didn't want other threads to be posted on top of mine only to find that nobody will look at mine. no hard feelings people .
