Pushing It

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I currently have a e4300 on a evga 680i motherboard ... I have it at 3ghz 100 percent stable. I know this isn't the best chip out there, but it is a decent board and I've seen it verified at over 4ghz on this processor. I am looking for some recommend settings like multiplier, fsb, voltages to help me get past 3ghz... I am having problems getting it to post or even get into windows much past 3ghz. I think heat might have been an issue before, but I upgraded my case and my temps have dropped significantly leaving me more headroom. I would like to see maybe 3.6... or at least 3.4 out of this beast, so fire away with any recommendations you might have.

It would be a good start if you post all your current settings, temps and screenshots if possible.

First off, I doubt very highly anyone is running an e4300 @ 4GHz stable withou putting insane voltages thru it, best Ive seen is 3.6 with 1.4875v

I have one right here on my desk. And IMO its a great OC'r I ran mine at 3.24 stable with 1.39v but its from the original batch #'s

Its capable of 3.4 @ 1.45v but heat will become an issue on it.

Id say you need to push some voltages to it... after 3GHz you need to up it to at least 1.375. Also what are you mobo voltages

I had some luck getting it to boot at 3.3 with 1.48v. I also had most of my other voltages bumped up a notch or two. I can't remember exact numbers right now. I think i've decided after fooling with this that I don't have the cooling nor is it worth it to push it that hard. I feel that 3ghz will be enough until I can get either a e72 or a e8x later on down the road when this thing finally outlives its usefulness. Thanks for the tips!
