    I saw the thread about i7 overclocking and i thought that core 2s also deserve to have a thread like that. So use this thread to post your core 2 duo, quad & extreme overclocking results.

    Motherboard :
    Motherboard chipset :
    Memory Type :
    Capacity :
    Memory timings :
    RAM frequency :

    CPU type :
    Model :
    Stepping :
    Revision :
    CPU cooling method :
    CPU cooler :
    FSB frequency/Bus speed :
    Multiplier :
    CPU voltage :
    Core Speed :

    Most of these info can be obtained from CPU-Z

    he is pretty much right with that, most people have either of those. Maybe the odd E5200 and Q9x00 CPU, but many will be Q6600 and e8x00.

    And some might have the super rare E7400! :jawdrop: lol!

    Face it this thread is out of date by 2 years easy, making it rather pointless IMO.

    I had a E4400, got to 3GHz on stock cooler, evil little chip, also had an E7200, even rarer than the E7400 :p

    Motherboard : P5E3 Pro
    Motherboard chipset : X48
    Memory Type : DDR3

    Memory timings : 9-9-9-24

    CPU type : Core 2 Duo
    Model : E8400

    CPU cooling method : Air
    CPU cooler : Cooler Master V8
    FSB frequency/Bus speed : 400 / Bench OC: 500
    Multiplier : 9
    CPU voltage : 1.34 / Bench OC:1.6
    Core Speed : 3.6Ghz / Bench OC: 4.5 Ghz

    Note, I am one of the few people to have built one recently and I'm likely to get a bit of flack for it, It's just I managed to pick up parts of it for free or real cheap, only problem is I think I killed the PSU already... Thats why I'm running it at 3.6 vs 4.3 all the time. I have plans to switch up to intels next generation of hardware when it comes out I think, I mean after I3/I5/I7/I9.

    personal experience of every smeg head that posts on these forums and the years i have put into the hardware section alone.

    Alot of people ran with E6600 before the sudden price drop on the Q6600 around the summer of 2007, pretty much everyone ditched there E6600 to add another 2 cores, that is if they weren't running the horribly buggy nforce 680i motherboards, which took about a million bios updates to get stable with Q6600 yet alone do any overclocking.

    Yes some people may have had other CPU's from the intel stable, but on mass people have purchased the Q6600. A bit like now how people have bought the i7 920, and the i5 750, there all best bang for buck CPU's.

    Motherboard : MSI p43 NEO-3f
    Motherboard chipset : p43
    Memory Type : Hynix oem pc2-6400
    Capacity :2x 2gb
    Memory timings : 5-5-5-20

    CPU type : c2d e7400
    Model :e7400
    Stepping :a
    Revision :r0
    CPU cooling method : air
    CPU cooler :CM TX3 w/ 2x 92mm (thermaltake "open" pusher on rheo, CM stock fan pulling on PWM)
    FSB frequency/Bus speed :333x4
    Multiplier :10.5
    CPU voltage :1.1v
    Core Speed :3.5 ghz

    not sure what makes the e7400 rare ... we have over 200 of em at work. Dell is now shipping us machines with the e7500 in it, but newegg still has the 7400's for around $115.

    machine has been running @ 3.5ghz since i built it in September. Haven't really pushed it - a stable, cool 25% overclock is plenty for me.

    and for the younger generation around here - not all overclockers rush out and buy the latest, greatest hardware the day it comes out. some of us have families to feed, and overclock to make budget equipment perform to the best of it's abilities. the last rig i built completely from scratch, with the intention of overclocking, was a athlon xp 3000+ rig.
