E4300 Overclocking Time - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Thread Starter 
Well, since we're on the topic of overclocking an E4300, I know I need to get some real CPU cooling.

So let's see what I've found that I like so far:

http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16835186134

Really like the above. Good price for what I've seen as good cooling.

I really really like the design of this one, and the things I've read about it. Besides, if I'm buying a new cooler, I'd rather throw in the extra 20 bucks for an Extra few MHz.

Since you are already looking at the AC7, it reminded me that another user had posted a very good deal on that cooler from ewiz yesterday. So far it seems to still be there. Take a look if you are interested.

Well, the more I read on the topic and look between the two, and at others, I really really like the Thermaltake. I've seen comparisons between it and the 9700 zalman, and people are normally reporting 5C difference (Thermaltake being the lower)

:-D

I"m also going to be getting the E4300 and i've never Overclocked before either. I found this NUTS guide. It's amazing but it tells you how to push till 3.47 to much for me but it will give you a great summary

LInk

It explains all the terms such as FSB Multiplyer in direct english and helped me alot. It's a great read

Yeah dude go with the Tt V1 cooler. It's been getting crazy reviews for the short time it's been out. Thermaltake got something right for a change

I dunno. Now I'm looking at reviews for the 9700 and people's quad cores are getting lower temps than my 4300.. LOL. Some guy is running 3.8GHz on his quadcore and using the 9700 and getting a max load temp of 50C. Ridiculous.

I will check out that read though, deff need the knowledge.

Thanks by the way :-D

That is badass. But the writer really didn't say what type of cooler he was using >.<

but really good info. Yea, the most I would overclock mine would be 3.2GHz which is a lot.

So, did you overclock yet? Or are you planning to get anew HSF before starting? 52F load is pretty high to start overclocking, but it is possible to overclock while undervolting.

I've never seen that orange Thermalmake, but these guys are good.
Tuniq
Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme

The Arctic Freezer 7 is a good budget HSF.

Getting the 120 Ultram Extreme, you'll have to buy your own fan, but it is said to beat the Tuniq without lapping.

Another usering with a E4300 on a Zalman 9700. http://www.overclock.net/intel-air-c...00-led-my.html

Yeah for overclocking there is no substitute for the Tuniq. But the Tt V1 is also great

To answer your question, I did play with overclocking it last night, and increased the FSB by a very small amount before I had to crash for work today.

I'm probably just going to get the 9700.

I read a review of TT V1 vs. 9700 in which the 9700 seemed to perform better, and that thread that you linked to me.. that sold me.
