1st OC attempt how am I doing?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Ok so I have tried my first OC and it seems to be going ok (30+ minutes stable in prime 95 as of right now on sFFT). I would like some feedback on where I am at and what i might want to change.

System components described in sig but an E6300 Conroe w/patriot ddr2-800

From cpu-z:

Core speed: 2407.9mhz
multi: x7
bus speed: 344.0
rated FSB: 1376mhz
Core Voltage: 1.312 (stock i didn't change but core temp reads VID @ 1.325v)
DRAM Freq: 430Mhz
FSBRAM: 4:5
timings: 5-6-6-13 (mem is rated at 5-5-5-12)


Temps from core temp durring prime 95
Core 0: 58degrees
Core 1: 54 degrees


I did not change any voltages or much anything really. My goal always was to get around 2.5Ghz maybe a bit more. At this point I am curious how you guys think I did.

Also is there any improvement to be made with the RAM? I have the multiplier set at 2.5 in the bios not sure if its better or worse then say trying to run at an integer number.

Update: It is now 3 hours stable in prime95 same temps give or take a degree.

Nobody has feedback?

BTW hit Prime95 stable for 8 hours and temps are now lower due to a new Cooler Master 212+. Idle dropped by 10-12 degrees and underload it was about a 16 degree difference.

Also ran some 3dmark tests and WEI which showed processor jump of 1 point to 5.9 from 4.9.

Wait, the Intel E6300 comes stock @ 2.8GHz, yet you're saying it's running at 2.4Ghz right now? That's called underclocking, not overclocking.

Intel Core 2 Duo e6300....

for the OP
If u are overclocking make sure to downclock the ram from say ddr2 800 to 667 and then move the FSB up

as for voltages u can get away with more it being a 65nm chip compared to a 45nm, they say 1.365 is the intel rated but 1.4 is fine for 65nm

How do I get it to 667? Do i need to set a FSB and mem multiplier to get that or should i just pick a fsb and then a multiplier that produces a mem speed less than 800.

I thought going up a bit over the 800 was ok.

As for voltages am I ok staying stock with this speed or is there an advantage to adding it. I know if I go up in speed and I crash i should add it but if stable is there a benefit?

thanks for the help.

CTRL-F1 will expand the memory timings for Gigabyte boards when you are in the setup blue screen.

you move it down to 667 because you eventually go back up to 800 when u are changing the FSB from like 200 to 220,230,etc. leaving it at 800 adds stress to the Northbridge when you overclock and will likely not give you a good overclock. Basically your moving it down to 667 but its going back up to 800 when you are overclocking, make sense?

running it at 1.4 volts will just help stability wise when you overclock

Ok maybe I am confused as to where to change it to 667. I will try the ctrl-f1 and see if that shows me. I know I changed the multiplier to back it down to have an end result of 860mhz which the bios calculated after the overclock (new fsb*new multiplier*2(being ddr2)).

I had also set the voltage up a bit before as a mistake and my temps skyrocketed but that was on my old cooler. I really don't plan to or need to go much higher if at all.

if you look around in the bios you will find how to change it from DDR2 800 to like DDR2-667, DDR2-533,etc. Only way u will be able to overclock correctly is to underclock your ram. I believe its called the system memory multiplyer



Let the memory frequency start out at 667, u will see it increase as you overclock.

also keep the e6300's multi at 7, its not unlocked so you can't overclock it that way.

you are overclocking via the frontside bus which starts out at 266 times 7 which is the stock speed of 1.86 GHZ. you can move the 266 to almost 400 on some boards, just move up slowly from 266, 276,286 etc to see what is stable.

also this might help you

Yeah I took the FSB to 344 from the 266 to get to the 2.4ghz. And setting the 2.5 ram multi led to the 860mhz for ram.

I just read over my MB manual and it said nothing but I did find this thread on here seems that with Pc-6400 it was naturally underclocked with this set up and now i have it overclocked.

http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...m-divider.html

Where am I going wrong. I am post my OC on the FSB and my ram is working and I am prime stable with the ram faster than it was before (according the the article above).

Sorry if I am missing the point here but your seem to be saying the overclock gets me back to 800mhz if i underclock to start but my OC has me over that and is stable.
