that's now but IT WORKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got it running to 3.0 Ghz Stable, I can get it 3.2 or even 3.4 but after a few hours or intensive cpu time it crashes. Tried 3.6 with 1.39v it sucessfully boots but when it "starting windows" it stopps freezes then BSOD and restarts, How can I achieve a perfect 3.6 or 3.8 maybe

First, go to "User CP at the top of the page, go to "Add System" and fill in your pc specs. Also, tell us what volts you're using on the cpu now.

Ok, so can you help me?

I don't know how to overclock core 2's. I would just set the cpu volts to stock (not auto), then raise the bclk (or I guess cpu clock) by 25mhz. Then boot into windows and stress test. If it's stable, then raise it another 25mhz and repeat. I would do it from stock speed, if you haven't already done that. Thats how a usual overclock works. I really don't know much about core 2 overclocking though.

First of all , I'd like to say that overclocking with a decent motherboard , memory , decent cooling and PSU help a hell of a lot .

Recommendations : ( post requests on this , or your local forums for 2nd hand goods

Mobo : Asus , Gigabyte or DFI P35 , P45 , X38 or X48 ( I've had good experiences oc'ing Q6600 on Asus Maximus Formula , Rampage Formula , Gigabyte X38-DS5 ) you should be able to buy one of these boards 2nd hand at a good price . And the ones I've mentioned ( in brackets X38/48 ) all support 16x + 16x PCIe crossfire .

Memory : Any memory capable of 1066mhz @ CL5 . As you push the bus speed the memory speed goes up at lowest mem multiplier eg. 333mhz = 666mhz ram , 400mhz = 800mhz ram etc . So your RAM cxan sometimes limit your OC .

Cooling : Basically , when stressing your system ( with Prime95 , Linx or whatever form of stress testing you use , temps shouldn't go over 70°C )
I'd recommend ( on a budget ) a Zalman CNPS10X Performa - excellent performance at decent price , and you can always add a 2nd fan to the mix .

PSU : Power consumption goes up radically with serious oc'ing , I'd reccommend a high quality 850W PSU . Good names are Corsair ( TX , HX and AX series ) , Seasonic , PC Power & Cooling , OCZ , Antec Signature series , Zalman . Check PSU reviews at Johnny Guru and Hardware Secrets - both offer really comprehensive PSU reviews .

try this : ( and try finding template with your bios's voltage settings )

I found that my Q6600 would clock higher stably with 8x multi - strange , but true . The thing is , though , that better mobo's support higher speed buses , so setting below may not work . First , set voltages below and set multi to 6x and see how high you can push the bus speed ( start at 400 and go up in increments of 25 for a quick ballpark figure )

CPU voltage - 1.45 ( you should be fine up to 1.5v providing cooling is adequate )
CPU pll - 1.5v
Northbridge - 1.4v
RAM - 2.1v

You aren't using the stock cooler that came with the processor are you?
