Q6600 Overclocking Difficulties

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a Water cooler to replace my stock CPU cooler so i could overclock my computer. I did some research before hand and found that my Q6600 G0 is one of the easiest to overclock, yet I'm currently finding it very hard to get anywhere. Can anyone give me any pointers/help?

Thanks.

What model is your foxconn board? I could only get 2.7 out of one of mine because my board couldn't handle anything over 310FSB.

Also, if my motherboard is the problem, can anyone suggest a cheap alternative? Like asus or gigabyte would probably be better
