Default Re: How far have YOU overclocked your E6300?

I've thought about trying to OC my P4 once I get a new computer, and trying to get it past the 4.0GHZ mark (3.0 now) but I'd have to get a new mobo, case and a good cooler since dell doesn't let you OC.

Just got my best OC so far - 3850 MHz. Anything after that, and I got BSODs in XP.

I did...it was a pretty sick OC, but it turned out to not be completely stable after a bit more testing. I'm now keeping it at a bit over 3 GHz, and it's completely stable with temperatures under load hovering around 40C.

Note that it's an E6600 though, not a E6300.

What? You increased the speed by 3.85Ghz? Cpuz shows the stock speed as 2.4Ghz, and the running speed as 3.85Ghz..

Im confused..
