Total OC Noob With E6300

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.
I recently upgraded my old and decrepit AMD Socket A system with a nice shiny one.
I see the the E6300 is a very good overclocker and I've always enjoyed reading about the massive clocks that the pros get

So... I decided to give it a blast myself only I have to me doing something totally wrong
I couldn't push my CPU past 2.3GHz and certainly not on stock volts. It was the heat that stoped me going further I think.

It appears I'm in need of an OC Oracle to enlighten me to my horrible mistake

It might be the CPU stepping that prevents you from reaching higher overclocks.

Is that the feature that keeps changing the multiplier between X6 and X7?

Well first lets find out what your temps are.

Your going to want TAT http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/392/mirrors.php

Coretemp http://www.thecoolest.zerobrains.com/CoreTemp/

Speedfan http://www.almico.com/speedfan432.exe

Those will monitor your temps, pick anyone you like. There was a thread about if Coretemp lists your T-junction as 85C, then TAT is correct, and to stay bellow 60C
If it reads 100C, then TAT is 15 too high. So when it reads 75C your actually 60C. So stay bellow actual temp of 60C

Orthos http://sp2004.fre3.com/beta/beta2.htm

This is what you will use to stablity test, and to test your "load" temps.

After you get those, your going to want to turn off Speed Step and all that other stupid stuff for your CPU. I can't think of the others atm, i think CE1 or C something is another....

Your RAM shouldn't be the problem yet, unless you are running a really high divider with your RAM, just keep a 1:1 FSB:RAM ratio for now.
Up your FSB in small increments, when you fail to boot or experience instability, you add a little more Vcore to get it stable.
Ram may also need more volts, along with NB / SB.

Once you find a place you like, stability test it with Orthos. Let it run for at least 2 hours, but 6 hours is the accepted value for stable. If the test fails then it's unstable.

Overclocking is a fickle thing, and you gotta find out what works for your system. Hope that helps

I was only using Speedfan.
As of right now my almost idle tempratures at stock speed for the cores are
44c and 45c
This seems high to me for an idle temp at stock speed. Especially as I fitted a Freezer 7 Pro cooler and used AC Silver 5 paste.
Under load tempratures rise to 51c 52c.
I know I have good cooling and airflow from front to rear in my case

*Edit

I have installed the specified software and Coretemp does indeed indicate my T Junction to be 85c.
Some help with which bits of the BIOS I need to switch off would be handy.

Under load TAT reads my tempratures to be 56c 54c

Your temps are fine and are not causing you any problems.

I'm not so sure those are the temps you should be getting, but i am not familiar with that cooler.

Just make sure speed step and intel thermal control are off.

those temps are high for stock cooling, reseat ur hs with some nice as5 if u have any

yes those r very high, i read further, and that means u def applied the as5 wrong or it didnt seat better, apply about 1 uncooked grain of rice of as5 to the middle of ur processor then put on ur freezer pro and turn it in little circles while appliey light pressure 1-2 lbs with ur hand and secure it without letting the pressure off. this will ensure u removed all the airpockets.

Can you do such a thing as apply too much Silver 5? I put quite a bit on and spread it about on the top of the processot before seating the heatsink.
Certainly bigger a grain of rice.

yes and if u doo it can actually act as an insulator which is bad too.lol, try not spreading just put down the hs and kinda rub the hs in circles around the cpu and aply light pressure then just fasten it all while not lettin of the pressure.
