Help me do a E6300 build please

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Going to do an E6300 build.

My goals, to hit 3.0 or close to it on either stock (prefered) or aftermarket cooling.

I plan to use this mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128012

And I need help picking the memory, I'd probably do one gig at the moment, and get two gigs later when I need it.

Any suggestions on memory ? I can also get a diff mobo as well, I haven't boughten anything yet.

Thanks !

Get a 1GB module of Crucial DDR2 800 or DDR2 1000.

The orginal poster wants stock cooling and then you go and suggest the most expensive air cooling possible. Good job

That being said, if you do plan to overclock I suggest that you get some form of basic after-market cooling, like the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro. You can read my build log (sig) and you'll find that I did manage 3GHz with the stock cooler, but the temperatures were dangerously high.

As an added bonus, most aftermarket coolers could be less noisy than stock.

For the memory you'll need something that can do DDR2-858ish to hit exactly 3.0GHz. You'll want at a minimum PC2-6400 (DDR2-800) RAM with some ability to overclock. Most people suggest D9 RAM; the G.Skill kit I'm using is currently doing DDR2-930. The gigabyte board will not go much past 465FSB (3.25GHz) because D9 ram doesn't play nice with it.

I think you're best with the BioStar TForce Board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138037

a member has hit 500FSB+ with it, and would be my motherboard if I had to redo my purchase:

If you're not up for the Biostar board, get the Gigabyte S3, which is cheaper and offers the same features.

The SAFEST way to hit 3Ghz on a budget is less expensive ram and the E6400. The idea is you'll be able to buy cheap PC2-6400 and run it at it's rated speed, thus no RAM OC. (run1:1 @ DDR2-800 exaclty). The extra mulit on the E6400 would bring you right up to 3.2GHz (400x8). DDR2 prices have been quite high as of late.... and anything after that with your budget ram is bonus.

I still can't suggest a cheap pair: I know sombody on these forums has some G.Skill "NR" series that worked out great for him.

The only reason I suggested that combo is because you intend to upgrade your RAM at a later date... RAM will probably be cheaper later than right now, however CPU prices are relatively stable (if not on the decline).... you have something called "comparative advantage".

Cheers,

Jimmy

EDIT: Just forgot, you said 2x512 vs. 1GB stick. If you went with only one stick, you'd take a big performace hit, not being able to run dual channel. So either get on the boat and go for 2x1 or go 2x512.

get a 1gig stick you dont need the best memory to get to 3Ghz, http://www.provantage.com/arctic-acfzp7~7ARCT004.htm its a couple of bucks less if it ever gets in stock, I got lucky I got my Freezer7 for $16 because they only had 15 left, you dont need cooling for $50 and above if you have good airflow in your case your set

If I go for the 6400 it'll be easier to hit 3.0 and I won't need aftermarket cooling, at least thats our hypothesis at the moment.

Think this memory stick would be good ?

If you plan to run the machine any amount of time continuously, I strongly suggeset an aftermarket cooler... it's money well spent to protect your investment.

However, if you're doing office and internet browsing; stock is fine.... but then again if you're doing office tasks, you don't need a E6300

As for the ram, Corsair tends to be good, although I find those timings a little loose (5-5-5-15)

How is this memory, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231063

Can I run that memory and get the 6300 and still hit 3.0 or should I get the corsair and run the 6400 ?
