Hey stncttr908, I'm looking at getting a e4300 for a rig I'm building for my dad. What kind of temps are you getting at your everyday overclock (3.2ghz)? Will I be ok with the stock heatsink/fan or should I grab a Zalman 9700 for safe measure?

With ambient temps around 22C I get 38-40C idle and high 50's load generally. I'm not sure if I'd entrust it to the stock cooler.

QFT - i am finding that it does in my quest to overclock here too.

stncttr908 - gonan be competing with you soon. I got to 3Ghz no problem with a 0.025 increase in CPU voltage - 333mhz fsb. Gonna try for higher FSB

I'm at 3.0GHz stock vcore myself with my e4300, totally orthos stable for hours. However anything near 3.1 or above with any sort of voltage isn't stable. Maybe its temps, but speed is good enough for my taste anyways.

Nice little chip.

Mild agnosticism —the view that the existence or nonexistence of God or gods is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable, therefore one will withhold judgment until/if more evidence is available. A weak agnostic would say "I don't know, but maybe you do."

Well that's two votes against speedstepping, so when it's hot enough out for the AC again (heh) I'll turn it off and try to hit the magic 3.6 and/or work on getting slightly lower speeds Orthos stable.

Bring it on, Mr. MUYA and others!

We can have a consolation prize for the first one to blow up their CPU or board.

Sorry for the off topic but you are the only one i see here with the new gigabyte board. I got the same board and will start my new build on fri. How do you like the new board it seems like it will be a good over clocker. You said you got to 3.0 with little effort what other speeds have you tried.

Go by vr-zone. They got the FSB to well over 450MHz+ !!!

I haven't really pushed on the overclocking front yet

If you want to get to tweaking your memory more then, you have press crtl and F1 on the main BIOS menu.
