Cheapest way of getting a e6300 to 3GHz and above.

Must include a e6300, motherboard and 2gb memory.

975 chipset would be lovely

would it be better for cas4 and a divider
or cas5 and 1:1

A half decent aftermarket cooler would be nice

The 975 are pretty poor at overclocking on the E6300/6400 as most cant reach high FSB. If you are going 975 the

Abit AW9D-MAX Intel 975X

Intel Extreme D975bx-305 975X

are the ones that can get high FSB at 450 ish

The 965 chipsets can get very high FSB (500 ish) is probably best to get one if your going for a E6300.

I'd of thought running 1:1 would be better :)

[/size][/font][/b]The ram and motherboards still look a little steep at the moment.When I can get it below £300 I'll hit the buy button.

I think that's going to be quite a while mate due to the increases of RAM prices not looking fall.

But your spec is definately good - should be able to get 3Ghz with that easy.

The A64 hamster in mine is still running well.

Was only going to upgrade if it was really cheap, I think if i was to sell my CPU, mem, mobo I could generate £120

Drop the mb and go for the ds3. Its proven itself time and time again.

You also got the OEM 6300 listed there so no HSF. I'd recommend the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro CPU Cooler (Socket 775) or the Titan Tower TTC-NK34TZ Heatpipe Cooling Fan (Socket 775)

Hahah... sorry, i should have read your previous post.

I see, so how do you reckon it would fair with the OEM cooler?

I wouldn't really advise going with the stock cooler. Most reports say it is quite loud and does not perform aswell as an aftermarket cooler. If you a planning to do any overclocking it is well worth getting an aftermarket cooler.

The Arctic freezer 7, Scythe Ninja, Scythe Infinity and tuniq tower are all good choices.
