E4300 Overclocking Time

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
So Here is my rig:

eVGA 680i SLi Mobo
2 GB DDR-800
8800GTS 680mb
E4300 cpu

everything else is in the rig listed in sig.

So here's what's up.

I am using the stock cooling on my 4300, and I want to overclock it.

I do need help getting started. How should I go about it, what programs would be best for tracking all the important stuff in regard to my chipset and all that.

Just really need some help for my specific rig. I've read all the FAQ's and the 4300 specific threads, but I'm still a bit lost.

Thanks Overclock.net peoples

Temp Monitors:
CoreTemp 0.94
CoreTemp 0.95
TAT

Please download 3 of the programs and tell us the temps that it gives you. Also, tell us what the T-junction on CoreTemp says.

After you have gotten your IDLE temps, download Orthos and select Stress CPU with Gromics in the drop down box and run it for 1-2 minutes and look at the temps raise up, and those are your load temps.

Load temps should not exceed 60C, anything beyond that can or will cause damage to your CPU.

Do this first before overclocking.

I don't have your motherboard, so it'll be a bit confusing for me to help you overclock.

just to let you know, i got my E4300 to 3.2GHZ at 1.48v ..runs at 60c full load, but that is as high as i'm going

Well, I'm using the stock heatsink and fan At the moment.

I'm gunna get you the results of those 3 programs and run Orthos here soon. Working on HDD Partitions.

not to hijack, but why is there such a big temperature disparity between core temp .94 and .95

to me it seems that .95 gives ecesively high temperatures in my case.

Speedfan, Gigabyte monitoring tool, and .94 Core temp all give more or less similar numbers, but .95 is way up there.
I can't use TAT since I have Vista 64.

For me, 0.94 and 0.95 shows the same temps. But why I listed both of them and TAT is because TAT and Coretemp 0.94 have a high success chance of similar temps and 0.95 have issues on many computers.

If TAT doesn't work, try out EVEREST. Download > Install> Open > Click Computer on the left side > Sensor.

You'll see:
CPU - DO NOT LOOK AT THIS TEMP
CPU #1 / Core #1 - LOOK AT THIS TEMP
CPU #2 / Core #2 - LOOK AT THIS TEMP

From CoreTemp:

T-Junction: 85C
Core#0: 40-41C
Core #1: 40-41C

My Nvidia Monitoring Software that came with the mobo shows 51C normaly for CPU temp

Doing orthos right now.

Ah! 85C Tjunction, you're lucky! Users with 100C Tjunction have to subtract 15C from their total temp, but there's not much information to back that up.

Now, waiting to see your load temps and how much you can overclock!

EDIT: Don't use nVidia Monitor Software for CPU temps.

EDIT2: I'd like to stay awake and help, but it's 2:36AM and I am going to bed. Good luck if you're going to do anything tonight.

Okay, ran Orthos for about 20 minutes running Stress CPU with Gromics, while at the same time installing Dawn of War, Patching Battlefield 2, and partitioning my hard drive.

CPU temp never passed 52C, System Temperature came up to about 40C.

Didn't get a chance to screenshot it before I had to come into work this morning.
