OCing e4300 on stock HSF??

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Planning on purchasing an e4300 on a very tight budget, so I'm unable to afford an aftermarket cooler What would be a save overclock on an e4300 using the inbox cooler??

Thanks in advance

Yeah, you can get a decent overclock with stock cooling.

An overclock on the stock cooler should be quite doable but obviously, Your Mileage May Vary.

Depending on how much voltage your E4300 needs, you could see anywhere between 2.8 and 3.2GHz on the stock cooler. Temperatures may start hitting the higher 50's to low 60's but at worst but it's not too big a deal.

Just overclock in small FSB increments of 40mhz (QFSB) and you should be ok. Keep memory Unlinked and locked down at 800mhz to prevent that from holding you back.

well i can get to 3.2ghz @ 1.47v with the stock cooler. and its 36degrees idle, and and 56degrees under heavy load. Hardly toasty if you ask me

well imo you must have a really good stepping cause at that vcore the stock cooler isn't really designed to dissipate that much heat, but there are always those exceptions, i've heard of a couple of those instances. But as a typical oc on stock cooling will be about 2.4-2.6 if you don't need too much vcore

Make sure you're using CoreTemp or TAT.

As I say, "Your Mileage May Vary"

I think 2.8-3.2GHz is quite possible really. If you're unable to get around 2.8-3.2 despite no increase in Core Voltage, you've either got case airflow that's less than acceptable or a concave IHS. Obviously ambeint temps will play a big factor as well.
