Yep, I have seen them CPU's hit at least 3.8Ghz but you need UBER ram and get cooling....but that is a mighty fine overclock. But why flog you CPU to death if you really dont need the power?

most i ever did was like 2.6-2.7ghz on my AMD 64 3000+ from the 1.8Ghz stock. Did it for Forum Wars back in the day and managed to get my GPU to like 590/600 from 520/540 stock also for Forum Wars

I can top mine at 4.1 G's, the ram won't go any further. But can't play any games because always get a lockup. 3.9ish is no problems at all, even idles at 26 degrees C which is hella cold on air with that kind of overclock.

My Venice went from 2.0GHz to 2.6GHz stable, my Toledo went from 2.0GHz to 2.8GHz. :_)

Toledo could only go to 2.6GHz wtih 4x1GB of memory, though.

My best OC was 4.3ghz stable on my E8600 and 4.2ghz stable on a E8500.I also had a Q6600 that would rock out at 3.8ghz 100% stable on air.

Jumping Moron...
Is this processor's capabilities any different to the E7300?? That is also a core 2 duo 2.66Ghz processor. I can easily overclock on stock fan to 3.10Ghz, stable. I got a Arctic Cooler freezer Xtreme hoping to be able to overclock higher but no luck. I believe I need to change the Vcore voltage..here are the options - +50mV, +100mV and +150mV, what should I chuck FSB, Multiplyer and Vcore on to reach a stable 3.66Ghz, that would be very nice. Thanks in advance.

I managed to hit 3.3 on my old E2160 and the current E7200 I run normally at around 3.4 but have taken it to 3.8...extremely unstable though...

What Vcore do you have for that? What stock speed is the E7200 at? Surely I can get 3.66Ghz atleast with my E7300.

Wow, thats a good overclock. I have mine at 3.3 and havent tried anything higher coz I am a little scared....but it got to 3.3 so easily I am sure I could do more. The E6750 sure is a fine overclocker.

2.4ghz to 3.2ghz and that's as stab;e as i could get it on a 50-ish C temp. If I get good liquid cooling someday I won't stop until I reach 3.6ghz!

i have my vcore at 1.4875v, so if you take into account vdroop, its probably doing somewhere between 1.42-1.46. The termination is at 1.3 and the MCH is .2v over.

Andrew Paterson,

if i am correct the e7300 is 45nm (runs cooler), but has less cache, 1,5mb per core.
the e6750 is 65nm, but has 2mb cache per core.

since your e7300 is a 45nm, it should run cooler, and therefor should be able to clock higher.
im not sure tho.

i got mine at 3600mhz with a vcore of 1,350V. bus speed of 450mhz, with a multiplier of 8X.
i got her running at +/- 40degrees full load.

good luck.
