I Got a free E4300!

Recommended Posts

Today I came home from picking up something at school and couldn't help but notice to see a Core 2 Duo box sitting on my kitchen table from the mail thing. At first I thought it was my C2D E6300 box, and that someone took it out. But I turned it over and it said Core 2 Duo E4300. Oh my I got so happy. I called and asked my dad who did it belong to, and he said he got it for me as a christmas present. Now I am here all alone at home stuck with this thing. I want to use it real bad right now and do some OC's. I have an ABIT AG8 motherboard from my Celly, but it doesn't support Core 2 Duo. Although I have heard of some people actually being able to use the E4300 on non supported boards with sticks of DDR400 without needing a BIOS update due to its 800 MHz bus. What I don't understand is how could the Voltage Regulator work with it. Oh well I guess I can give it a try right?

EDIT: Wait a min..he said Christmas present? The E4300 was released late January...looks like someone cares :lol:

 

Now if you'll excuse me, I've got a E4300 to OC myself hehe the 2.5 it's at atm is not nearly enough :)

yeah christmas present because he wasn't even able to get me a present that I wanted during Christmas. So this is more like my Christmas/Birthday present because my birthday is in less than 2 weeks. YAY I will be 17.

Good OC so far man :thumbs-up: But lets see some 3 Ghz action. I heard of people being able to hit 3.4 Ghz easily on the E4300

Right now 3.15 with 1.35V, but stability is unknown, 2.9 was the last "stability check" I've got the RAM running 1:1 so @ 350 and stock timmings (DDR2-800 G.Skill NQ) so that's not an issue :)

 

The board I'm using was a good friend's "old" ASUS P5B-E (he had MASSIVE problems (not related to OCing at all), I'm only having minor ones (again OC is going good)

 

While I don't HATE it I think I'll continue to pass on ASUS boards...the deal I got on it with the ram however was just a little too good to passup :lol:

 

Now for some rough stability testing :)

cchalo, if you're looking for a good solid board that OCs well, the Gigabyte DS4 is a good choice (not sold in the US I think? :huh:). For the reason stated, the DQ6 would be a good board to get, its even got a couple more features than the DS4, which already OCs very well.

Yep, cheaper and faster, that is why i am getting one :) When i was assking about it someone pointed me towards a reveiw in which they got theirs to hit 3.42, a 90% oc lol!

 

And queenz, it is very kind of your dad and all but isn't the 4300 pretty darn similar to your 6300 lol?

both have the same cache, but the e4300 has a lower bus speed... now why is this good?

 

e6300=266x7=1.86ghz

e4300=200x9=1.8ghz

 

you can probably see where this is going :P
