Some fun with my E4300 and 965P-DS3
 
My everyday OC is in my sig, but I felt like having some fun this afternoon.

Not ORTHOS or Prime95 stable unfortunately, but not bad for a $118 processor! I was going to try for 3.6GHz for a 100% overclock, but I couldn't get it to even POST and was wary of going beyond about 1.55V on the vCore.

Awesome work. :D

:wonder: How come we never have any afternoon fun?

It's so predictable, but I can't help laughing. :rofl

Sweet overclock..I think I'm having a small bout of envious here. :p

Nice overclock. You may want to disable "C1E Halt mode" in your BIOS, though, as it's not good for overclocking. See how it backed your multiplier down to 6 in that Everest shot? I've even had it interfere with some of my games before.

It can harm the overclock? I wasn't aware of that. I left it on so I could try and save some power with these energy costs skyrocketing. :D

I haven't had any problems with it so far. When the CPU needs it it kicks right up to 9x and stays there, AFAIK.

I been able to see around 3.5 to 3.6 on my e4300 as well. I just am not completely stable until around 3.0. It's a sweet spot, so I left it.

Mines not stable above ~333-334 FSB. Tried jumping up higher, to see if there was a "FSB hole," but it wouldn't even POST. Oh, well, 3GHz on a chip who's stock speed is 1800MHz ain't bad...especially for the price.

I'm definitely lucky. I'll check the stepping when I do a tear down (or go quad...)

Those are some nice overclocks for that chip. Keep them coming. ;)

I'll probably cave and get my water cooling gear a bit early just so I can say I got this beast past 100%. :D
