Different boards I know, but mines at 1.34....
yep, that is pretty high.... but without it my system seems to crash just after windows log in..???

i don't think i'll make 3.8ghz, this has been the hardest chip ive OCed yet.... i think its either a mobo limitation with Quads, or the chip itself has an FSB wall above 3.8ghz...

i can post @ 3.8ghz, but she will not stay stable, no matter how much voltage is thrown at it....

still ive sold my E6750, i have two fellas fighting over who's gonna pay more for it....(a 4ghz screenie goes a long way...lol)

so i have acquired this quad for 40 , i love a bargain.

I have the same sort of problem. I hit a fsb wall at a low 447. Even 1mhz over and it BSoD'S at startup with all sorts of volts thrown at it. I got fed up with it, so that's why I've stuck with 3.8gz.

I ditched 4GB of ram to go back to 4GB only. It was the ram holding me back. It got me past the FSB wall:

It's taking some volts to do it too

EDIT:

At least i know this chip will do 4ghz -

Getting it stable is another matter

I was able to squeeze a little more out of my CPU today by messing around with some settings. I just wish the Striker Extreme didn't have all the issues it does with overclocking quad cores, because I'm not going to pencil mod my board...



CPU-Z Validation



I'll get a Vantage shot eventually because I'll use this as my 24/7 overclock.

I gave up on getting 4ghz stable and have temporarily settled for 3.85 ghz stable. It sure gets finicky after a certain level.

Hey guys, just wondering if yous could help me give my Intel E5300 Dual Core an overclock, ive got it to 3.0 ghz (from 2.6) on my ASUS board, but not sure if i can push it a bit further, is there a max for these CPU's?

Thanks in advance.

every single cpu clocks differently - even ones next door to each other in the same batch. there are so many variables involved.

the max for your cpu is when you lose stability. a constantly crashing pc is not a good pc.

in very simple terms: how do you gain stability once you've upped the fsb too far? you have to up the volts going to the processor, and maybe ram too.

but this makes it hotter - so sort out cooling and air-flow inside the case.

i've got my 3 gig chip to 4 gigs, and decided to stop there. i know it will go a lot higher if i push it, but i don't want my fans running too hard - i want extra performance without too much noise.

I need to get some better cooling. My i7 860 runs stable at 3.7 but tops out at 84C. I can't run that hot. With better cooing it will do MUCH more than this. Anyway here it is. These 860s are very nice. I'm not used to the high multipliers. I'm trying to learn how to get the voltages right. I wonder if I could use a guide for a 920 and get something from that....

Since I recently found a modded bios that lets me o.c. amongst many "new" options, I've been trying to get the highest stable o.c. by adjusting memory timings, memory voltage and other settings that were unavailable previously.

Here's what I'm currently trying, stable under load for a few hours so far. It's a P4 550 HT 3.4 gHz at stock.
