TR Forum Tidings: Core 2 Duo overclocking
The Core 2 Duo has now been out for over three weeks; prices have had
time to drop, motherboard manufacturers have had a chance to polish
their BIOSes, and overclockers have been getting their hands dirty
trying to squeeze every last drop of speed out of the new chips.
Forum regular pete_roth's "C2D
OC" thread has already grown to eight pages of our intrepid forum
gerbils relating accounts of overclocking prowess, comparing their
overclocks, and asking for tips on how to push their Core 2 Duo just that
little bit further. Pete_roth
himself was able to crank up his 1.86GHz Core 2 Duo E6300 to a cool 3GHz
with the help of a Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 motherboard and some Corsair
DDR2-800 RAM. If you want to relate your own overclocking experiences or
