overclock E7300 for high and stability

January 9, 2013 at 14:53:11
Specs: Windows 7, E7300 / kingston hyperx 2x2gb 1066
i have the cpu, e7300 with a dfi lanparty LT p35-t2r , 2x2gb ddr 1066 kingston hyperx
i got it to 8x400 =3200mhz , ram 400/800mhz for ratio 1:1 , voltage 1.225 for proc, v2.1 for ram, latency and it's very stable and very fast.
cooler thermalright ultra 90 runing at low speed
temperatures are core 1 - 41 / core 2- 45 degrees on idle and 55-58 on full load
I tryed to overclock the cpu to 9x400=3600 , and i saw almost no difference in games
AIDA64 saw differences in some cases...but i didn't felt it...maybe for some other programs lige photo/video or archive...copy....
anyway...these settings are the only one i could get it stable...and i tryied alot of ways...
i'm no expert but i really thing there are too many things that influence overclocking stability...too many voltage options :D

"i saw almost no difference in games"

Good gaming performance requires the proper combination of CPU, RAM, & graphics. You didn't state which video card you have but overclocking the CPU won't make up for a weak graphics card.

Your OC and temps are good right now. If your gaming is still not up to what you want, look to your graphics card like riider says. If you already are running a really good gaming card, you will need to start from scratch. You should look to a Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge (overclockable K version) and build a new rig around that for a significant improvement. Research all components completely and if needed, wait until you have the money to do it right.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

the reason why is mostly due to the gpu on your system since the gpu handles those types of processes. and to tell you the turht about your cpu it's not going to get much better then that performance wise, if you want greater performance from your cpu upgrade it to a quad core. You can buy Core 2 Quads Q6600's now for as little as 110 dollars and with a little bit of overclocking you will see a nice performance gain all around compared to the cpu you have in it now. I woudln't suggest building an entirely new pc unless there is a real reason behind it that you really need a new pc and you are going to spend a decent amount of money to do it right.

ididn't say the photo or video are choppy, actualy adobe premiere pro cs5 works pretty smooth even if i don't own a quad cpu.
psu is antec NeoPower 550 with 3x 17A rails
My video card is hd 5770 from power color, it's a small OC version...but i saw people
playing pretty nice games on youtube, like bf3 and others on high details
i was thinking about a q6600 myself too, but when u can't afford, u try to be happy with what u have :)
