OCing e4300 on stock HSF?? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Mileage will always vary, so go in small increments no matter what. Some people can get 3.2 on stock cooling, some people can barely run it at stock speeds at stock cooling. The reason it varies is because some 4300's come with a badly curved IHS, and I really doubt you want to lap your IHS and void your warranty so early in the life cycle.

E4300's generally run hotter. How cold/hot is it where you live? Do you have Arctic Silver 5?

A good goal you can hit with AS5 and a good fan set up (as in, decent case fans pushing and pulling air through your system) and you should hit 2.5-2.6 easily. Remember that's the speed of an E6700, so you're pulling $300 CPU performance out of your little $115 chip, not too bad until you can afford a better cooler.

Some good budget coolers are the AC Freezer 7 Pro and the Cooler Master Hyper TX.

Either of those CPU coolers when you have $25-30 spare will do exceptionally well on the E4300.

Good luck .

Do lap if you really want to get that 3.0Ghz but 2.66Ghz or even 2.4Ghz is fairly enough. At 2.66Ghz you can watch a 1080p blu-ray movie (1920x800) (no hardware acceleration, just pure CPU speed) smoothly without hiccup. As such you'd get hiccups with lower speed even at 2.5Ghz.

And CPU RMA seems unpossible to me. Newegg only takes before 30 days, and Intel, now has black-box in their CPU that they can use to detect overclocking, and I doubt you could get your CPU back anyway.

The black-box determines voltage, not over-clocking.

The idea is, if you over-clock and want to keep your warranty, you have to do it on stock voltage. If you up the voltage, you'll flag the black box.

But seeing as how over 80% of Core 2 Duo over-clocks require extra voltage, I guess that's out of the question anyway.

So I will concur with you, but since it's a variable concur, my point is still somewhat valid.

I got up to 3.42 ghz on 1.35v, idling ~36C in the BIOS on stock cooling/paste. Haven't verified in Windows yet though. Also, managed to get to 3.6ghz (100%!) on 1.50v today! I'm not going to run at that speed though, it's a work computer so it's gotta last a while.

At any rate, it really depends on the chip you get like some people have been saying. You can get lucky and get one that will go real far on stock cooling, or you might not. I'd say go for it, it'll be the best you can get if you're on a budget. And hope for the best!

I'm getting 3GHz (333x9 @ 1.375v) with the stock intel cooler right now, of course my E4300 is lapped, however I idle at 46c and peak @ 61c. It can be done.

Whats funny is that I just lapped mine yesterday, and I posted alot of pics, you can check it out here http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...overclock.html , also, it cost me around 18$ including the piece of glass i bought with it to keep a level surface. It's worth a shot if you don't mind voiding the warrenty.
