would like to oc my Q6600 g0

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
my specs are as follows:
quad q6600 (G0) @2.4ghz w/ Ocz vendetta 2
video card: MSI R6950-2PM2D2GD5 Radeon HD 6950
500gig 16 meg cache hdd, 4 gigs 800 mhz ram
PS: SeaSonic S12II 620 Bronze 620W
Motherboard: Asus P5K/EPU
Case: Antec Three Hundred
monitor: 40 inch lcd 1080p tv

i bought the computer overclocked to 3204 mhz but the power supply gave out and took my mobo with it about a year ago. i shipped it off to get it repaired and just got it back. i upgraded my graphics card from an 8800gt oc2 bfg card to the one you now see in my sig. i also bought a better power supply..]

Id like to oc it with software that enables me not to have to go inside the bios to do it.

my vid is 1.32500v

You my want to do a search here there are lots of guilds on how to overclock and lots of members who will help.

Fill in your system specs upper left under quick links, also you are better off to use your bios to overclock.

I use the Biostar Tpower I45 which allows me to use this utility.



I did not use this utility to overclock my processor, as it is pretty dangerous. I used my bios and a lot of time.

Up the clock frequency a little, test it. Successful? Up the frequency more. Fail? Up the voltage a little. Monitor the heat of the processor and don't up the voltage too much or you'll fry the processor.

Like We Gone just said add your system specs to your signature so we may better help you. You can do this through your User CP here on Overclock.net.

You are going to need something other than the stock reference cooler to achieve any sort of meaningful OC.

Is there any reason why you do NOT want to use the BIOS to OC? I think you will be better at overclocking in general if you learn your way around the BIOS. It can be daunting at first but it really is not that difficult.

Use BIOS to OC, forget about those programs. They can sometimes be a bigger headache then when overclocking from BIOS.

To OC a Q6600 to 3.2Ghz is fairly simple and doesn't require much work, usually going higher will need more tweaking and testing.

I have same vid chip and to be stable at 3.5Ghz I need 1.42 vcore and for 3.7Ghz it needs 1.49 vcore, just some number to give you an idea of what you can expect.
