E6300 stock - 2.2Ghz

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Just want to say "Hi"

I have:

E6300
Arctic Cooler Freezer 7 Pro: Idle 32c, Load 47c
Gigabyte 965P-S3 Rev 3.3
2GB Corsair XMS2 5400 DDR2
Gainward 7950GT 512DDR3

I was wondering if OC'ing my E6300 from stock to 2.2Ghz would see much of a performance gain? I did try it once but it didn't seem faster and I had the stock cooler.

My Super PI (1M) score went from 28seconds, to 25 seconds, so not much of an improvment.

Also, I couldn't go above 2.3Ghz, it just wouldn't boot.

I had the Voltages all set to manual, but left as they were originall.
The PCI-e Freq @ 100Mhz

The RAM at 1:1 with the defualt timings.

So, yeah, Will I notice a difference, and why can't I go above 2.3Ghz?

Thanks guys!

I think it might be RAM issues. And you won't actually notice much of a performance gain unless you fold, benchmark, or encode DVD's.


Stepping is the key. I increase my FSB by 5-10mhz at a time and restart.

Please fill in your system specs for your sig.

My RAM, how? I've been told I need to +0.1 to the MCH? Sound right?

I know, I do it small incriments...

Try ram divider. That is 667 ram, It is oced too much @ 1:1.

i think the ram is fine.. isnt 5400 ram rated at like 667? anywho, try upping the voltages for the NB and cpu.. you may want to up the NB by +.1 and raise the cpu to like 1.35 or something.. just play with it.
working on it...

Whoops you are right it's 667.

The RAM is fine at stock but unless he changes the Memory Divider to 1:1, it'll push above 667 speeds. Theoretically he should be fine up to 2.33GHz without the Memory limiting him.

Give the NB +0.1V, drop the memory speed and head for 333FSB, giving you 2.33GHz. That should give you a pretty nice performance boost. From there, loosen your memory timings to:

Cas Latency: 5
Ras Precharge: 5
Ras to Cas: 5
Tras: 15

and memory voltage to 2.2V then push further on the FSB in increments of 5-10mhz. Run SuperPI 1M until you find the speed of instability then pull it back till it is stable. Finish it off with a run of ORTHOS Blend Test for a minimum of 2-3 hours. Found here:

You'll also want Intel Thermal Analysis Tool for keeping a watch on temperatures:

well for browsing the internet of course u wont see much difference but if u were encoding or playing a game u would. Overclock it to 3.0 and then tell us if u see a difference. Also, benchmark and see if theres a difference.
