Core2 6300 1,86 GHz, how to overclock?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I would like to overclock my Intel Core2 CPU, 1.86 GHz, I hope that I saved all information necessary at my profile.

I overclocked once my old computer, but that was about 5 years ago, so I don't really know what to do.

I would like to get some help from you

First do you have a cpu cooler thats not stock?? If so what is it. What kinda case/air flow.

Next is software. I like OCCT and coretemp. They can be found in download section.

When you start to oc you are going to turn off C1E and EIST and turn off auto fan and start to raise bus speed while lowering ram down to lowest setting for now.

I have no special cooler, just an "normal" one, with air. I don't really know the differences between coolers, sorry.

i think i will download coretemp. that was the program i used before 5 years

Is it that importent to look for the cooler or can i just look for the cpu temperature?

As you begin to oc I figure you can hit 2.5ghz with a decent cooler and still have decent temps. Just bump the vcore a bit and start working it. There are a ton a guides to oc S775 intels.

and whats the program to increase vcore and GHz (and how much to increase?)?

OCCT and coretemp are only for monitoring or do can they increase vcore and GHz?

No one on here would ever recommend a software oc, its all in the bios my friend. Most motherboard makers have an oc'ing software program but its all junk.

I agree with the above. Make sure temps stay below 60c and that should be fine.

Below 60??? At 3.2, my e6300 sometimes hits 70 while folding and all has been well for months.

before you do this, get a proper cpu cooler, a good budget one is a coolermaster hyper 212+

this is a very basic explanation of overclocking

its basic maths. your E6300 is rated at 1066mhz. you always divide this number by 4 so 1066/4= 266, this is your fsb. (or cpu frequency)
then your processor (cpu) has a multiplier of 7 (or cpu ratio)
so 266 x 7 = 1862mhz or 1.86GHz, your stock speed

boot into the bios, usually by pressing delete or f1 (may be something else)
unlink your ram, so it stays at stock speeds, you can overclock the ram later
turn off C1E and EIST

can you raise the fsb? yours is now 266.
try rising it to 280
boot into windows
download realtemp and coretemp (google them)
install and run them
then download intel burn test (ibt) and run it.
(or install prime95 and run large FFT's)

have a look in task manager and notice how much free ram is listed.

in ibt set threads to 2 (for 2 cores) and then click on custom ram and enter an amount just below the free amount.
eg. i have 2520mb free ram. so i enter 2500 into the custom ram.
run the test for 5 passes. for now,
and then at final speed you want, run for 50 passes
and then run prime95 with blend test for about 4-5 hrs or overnight)
keep an eye on temps (do not let it go over 70.c)

if test runs fine, go back into bios, and change frequency (fsb) to 300 and repeat the tests.
keep doing this in 20mhz steps until windows will not boot. then just go back a step (remove 20 from the fsb) to the last stable frequency,
or
just raise the cpu voltage a couple of levels. it should now boot.
its a balancing act, higher voltages will get you higher fsb, but it will also give you higher temps.

the trick is to do this step by step as every cpu is different,

get the cpu maxed before increasing the ram speed

the temps above are extreme, in day to day running you will be lower than the temps while stress testing
