Question Reguarding a e6400 Dual Core Chip

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone (first post on these forums ),

I'm about to upgrade my motherboard and have a quick question regarding the e6400. I'm a bit new to building but I did manage to gut my old out of warranty Gateway install the components into a new case and get everything back up without any issues.

My question is this, I plan on taking the processor and throwing away the intel board my stock Gateway came with and upgrading it to this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130159

I was wondering since Intel states the FSB on this chip is 1066 and this motherboard supports 1066 or 1333 can I use 1333 on this chip or will it simply not work?

May seem like a simple question but I wanted to ask before I accidentally destroy.

PS: Also dos anyone know how well the e6400 overclocks? I'ts a 2.13Mhz chip, has anyone tried to overclock it?

Welcome!
You can use 1066Mhz on that chip at first, but if he "lets you" pudh higher, you might get 1333Mhz Quad pumped bus...
read the guides on overclocking, find out what is what, and how Overclocking process is done...

Thanks for the speedy reply I was actually looking through the UserCP pretty cool how you can do that, updating my profile now. Thanks I'll be sure to read this guide and try once the motherboard arrives on Wednesday. Any idea if the e6400 is good (or bad) for overclocking? I've overclocked video cards before but I've never really had any board/cpu expierence.

e6400s are great overclockers, and dont worry about the fsb. it just means it "officially" supports 1333fsb. ive got an e6300 oc'ed at 3.25ghz (465*7) and the fsb is at 1860... (465*4).
