Upgraded to C2D, feels kind of slow

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I just recently upgraded to C2D e4300. I previously had 3700+. So far i haven't done any gaming nor other extensive apps, but just from desktop, It kinda feels slower than my 3700. Also, my cpuz acts kinda weird, I'm currently runing @1.89GHz(210x9) and on my cpuz it shows 210x9 and an instant later 210x6 and back and forth, same with Vcore, its really weird. Any thoughts?

its the eist and c1e and all that stuff, when your not using your cpu it lowers vcore and changes the mutli to 6x

Yeah, I just got that. Now the CPUZ is fine. So tough to get used to this Gigabyte bios. Thanks man.

Well E4300 needs to be overclocked to be better than a 3700 i think...

1.89GHz sounds kind of weak, try overclocking and then compare.

Make sure windows is utilizing both cores, you can check by ctrl + alt + del and under the performance tab, make sure there is two graphs under cpu usage.

No not really, a 3700 should be running at a very high oc to compete with a stock 4300, probably around 2.8ghz or so to be equal

Another thing make sure your ram is running at a rated speed or 1:1 which ever you want, sometimes it gets downclocked alot when you do a fresh install of everything

Ok. I actually overclocked the 4300. Runing at 3.15Ghz (350x9) @ 1.41xx(bios)vcore (shows 1.440 on cpuz). Ram is at 2.5 divider (3/4) with +0.3V. The temps are insanely high, but i talked to someone who has a similar setup and he said the e4300s tend to run hotter. I ran orthos for 15minutes, no errors but temps were in high 70Cs (its 85F in my house right now). Plan on leaving orthos runing over night.

In task manager I do have 2 graphs, however they aren't being used equally (ex. one core is being used more than the 2nd), but I don't know if thats a problem, since this is the first time I'm dealing with dual core cpu.

As for the temps on your CPU being in the high 70's (Celsius), well, I wouldnt let my chip run that hot. That is very close to, or above where the chip should start thermal throttling. Overclocking is great, but running at that temp for extended periods of time will wear out your cpu fast!

haha, typo, its supposed to be F

Well, my 3700 used to be 40-45C underload, I don't get it.

Check what Tjunction reads in Coretemp, if it's 85c, stick to 55c max. If it's 100c, stick to 70c max coretemps.
