I brought mine to 3.6GHz on a Xiggy S1283 with DDR2-800 RAM. Lets see if you can beat that with DDR3 ;)

Thank's for the mobo, jejej i'd should have said something under 180$ and the Ram under 70$ or a 250$ Budget:toast:

Knowing your BIOS and good cooling is da key. If you broke my record, try beat tiggers 3.9GHz overclock :p

The E6300 is a monster oc'er. You will have fun with it :toast:

my personal opinion would be to stick with an ASUS board . . . although, their high-end OCers are still rather pricy (P5E3 Premium - $270).

As to the DDR3, look for some good quality brands. I've had good success with OCZ (although others claim they don't OC well), G.Skill, Kingston and Mushkin are also solid brands . . .

I recommend choosing DDR3 rated over your stock FSB speeds - it'll give you more room for stability as you take your BUS speeds higher


I brought mine to 3.6GHz on a Xiggy S1283 with DDR2-800 RAM. Lets see if you can beat that with DDR3 ;)

hehe . . . are we wanting to compare latencies and cache amounts? DDR3 can move some insane amount of information per clock cycle :toast:
