After the most recent update (to 2.8Ghz), it ran for just shy of 8 hours, and was still going in the morning. The chart however shows 1.312V; which is what my stock E6400 runs at.
Why are we worrying about comparing vaporware to something that has been out for a long time. It works! You may also note that Core i3, i5 and i7 CPU's have Intel sanctioned overclocking modes via the H55/H57/Q57/P55 and X58 chipsets. Have you priced 2 gigabytes of DDR2-1066 lately?
Unfortunately, that's about all it did, and I rapidly determined that my measly single-core laptop seemed to have better performance, so I needed to do something about it. If you can run Prime95 this way for an hour, it's very likely your system is stable. So what you should be looking for is the front side bus speed.

- If you can run Prime95 this way overnight, your system is guaranteed stable.
This is why you need SpeedFan (or something like it).

The E6600 is the cheapest Core 2 Duo with 4 megabytes of level 2 cache.
By OC AddictApril 30, 2011 at 7:45 am Well said indeed, although i've got a problem of my own. This guide by PCStats is a good primer for getting the basics down. If you want to bump up the speed a little, no. And folks is why Intel makes sh!tloads of cash from being able to sell the next speed step in the CPU chain for 50% more than the one you own.
This might be a little irrational if you actually compare the performance of both cache sizes on an apples-to-apples clock rate basis, but so be it. Of course, we're both using different boards, and before you ask, my board is the Gigabyte P965 DS3P, which at the time was considered one of the best OCing boards out This monster barely gets warm under dual Prime95 load. It's the most modern chipset for the Core 2 Duo, too.
why do you bash amd fanboys for crowing when their processors were the best performers when you are doing the exact same thing? I don't like that. I don't no why and also 300mhz is the max for me. That is the equivalent of an X2 @ 4.1 - 4.4GHz.
I used to be a lojal reader and both linked and recommended your site to other people for unbiased information, but I will stop doing this now for obvious reasons. Reply najames - Friday, July 28, 2006 - link Oh boy, oh boy I want to buy one of these Conroe's right now. But then I noticed the other problem - my tower was in the desk space. Not an unusual occurance with this vendor.

Not having any money this would seem to be like a good way to increase my system's life-span and I thought that I would ask for help. The processor had a clock speed of 266X10 and the ram ran at 400MHz on default, so i shifted the cpu clock speed to 300X10 and the ram fsb to 800MHz,
Well i've once attempted to over-clocking it through Bios, which was at default before and results were a complete failure. So what's up? Enter Prime95.
So I moved it into the open air and saw the temperature drop another 5°C, which puts me in the sweet spot.
Does the BIOS allow changes to CPU core frequency ? Will be running all this on an ANTEC SP 400W. Increase voltage to the CPU, and memory in the BIOS. After all, that's what the internet is for.
This kit, if you can find it is probably the only one that is compatible. I think I'll leave it like this, at least until I get faster memory. Incorrect -unless you start with crap components. While I am using the E6300, it's currently set a bit higher, but I'm no longer using the stock fan, so let me get to that point in a moment.
I've been a long time AMD enthusiast, but Intel finally abandoned the problematic Pentium 4 architecture and built a better mousetrap this time.
