My poor E7300 - Page 2

I would upgrade the motherboard to a model that is designed for enthusiast overclocking then see how far you can push the E7300. If that is still not satisfactory, try finding a used Q9*50 chip on the forum. Only go with a 775 quad if you get a better motherboard. If your current board has trouble overclocking a C2D chip, it will be worse with a C2Q.
what do you mean with it will be worse? you mean worse in overclocking? or just overall performance.

eg. not enough volts, temps to high, cpu wont go that high. motherboard wont let you go that high...

if your on a tight budget illd go for a Core 2 Quad, ( socket LGA 775. ) so it will fit into your motherboard.

and then save a beast
and that would save me from the $ of a new motherboard and rams. if only there was anyone with a core2quad & GTX 460 to tell me their benchmarks

The upgrade to an i5 with new DDR3 ram and motherboard (that actually allows you to overclock) will be more than enough for a few years, unlike upgrading to another LGA775 cpu.

My i5 upgrade was pretty damn cheap for what it is. £138 for the quad i5, £40 DDR3 ram and £80 for the motherboard. A comparable 775 quad costs about £190 (Q9550). I really think you should upgrade to a new socket processor, possibly 1155 with the brand new sandy bridge processors. As opposed to replacing your current motherboard and chip for the same socket. That would be inefficient with your money.

If you get a Q9550, you should be good. i7/i5 CPUs are a decent bit faster, clock vs clock. But it's not THAT big, ya know?

that is a beauty, but a little overpriced..

well thanks guys for the real quick help, i have 2 options now, either get a LGA775 CPU that costs me like 300$, or a new motherboard + ram + CPU.

I would just get a new motherboard + ram + CPU! 775 is quite faded out now, new tech > old tech. Not to mention the newer i5 use less power, are cooler etc.

if your honestly upgrading go sandybridge.

but i know what its like to upgrade to a c2q 775 since its like 400$ cheaper than a sandy bridge upgrade but forsure it'll be WORTH IT.

Anyone familiar with his board? Even an 3.4 Q6600 would be a big upgrade from a 2.66GHz dual core if his board can do it, and would only cost $100.

you can always just buy a socket 775 quad core cpu, that will help a lot

I would like to offer you one of my EP45-UD3P's but I am putting them together as a package deal for people that want to break into overclocking. Recent thread puts this board as best quad overclocker and second best dual core overclocker(socket 775). This is the bottom board I will sell anyone as I don't want to put people in the position that you are in, with a board that poorly supports overclocking. I could see a person get interested in overclocking and get irritated with me if I sold him something that did not overclock well. I will add that DDR3 is dirt cheap over here in the States now.I have contact with a great many networking and security students but I know only one person who overclocks. I found that working with overclocking turned the BIOS from something terrifying into a portal to a great amount of understanding about cpu architeture (and I have tons and tons to learn). Overclocking is my hobby and we all have jobs that get in the way of our hobbies. My feeling is keep that e7300 for desktop duties (browsing,homework,email) and go i7-920,930,950, this is my 2 cents, not makng war here.

No offense to the OP but his board is junk for overclocking.



If it stuggles overclocking a C2D chip, it will definitely struggle with a C2Q.
