Nevertheless, we feel that overclocking a Core 2 Duo processor such as the E6300 really is quite easy. Clocked at 1.86GHz we found that reaching 3.20GHz using the settings illustrated in this review was all too easy! Reaching 3.50GHz may be a little more difficult, but again we are yet to find an E6300 processor that wont go there with this motherboard and memory configuration. That said, most gamers will have no need to go above 3.20GHz any way, as the 3.50GHz configuration offered almost no performance gains at either tested resolution. Given many gamers will go for a Radeon X1950 Pro rather than the X1950XTX used here today, there is even less need to reach 3.50GHz.
