Well, since my last attempt at overclocking failed miserably, I decided to tinker with my Q6600 rig.
I've had it overclocked for years at 3.2 with very good temps in the upper 20s low 30s idle, and under load with Intel Burn Test I would barely reach 60-62 after an hour.
I would like to try for the third time, hopefully successfully, to get to 3.6.
Every time I've tried to move the multiplier to 9x, I have had the system crash, and I've tried increasing the voltage as much as .06volts with no success.
My current settings are:
CPU termination: 1.26
CPU reference: AUTO
I don't think there is much that needs to be messed with since my RAM and everything else has been absolutely rock solid with the overclock at the 400Mhz FSB, and I'm only changing the multiplier.
I know there are many threads out there on this specific CPU, so I'll search through them again, but if there is a tip on where to proceed given the current settings and stability except for the 9x multiplier, I would love to hear it.
