I feel you should of done more research on overclocking before going down this road. There are hundreds of Q6600 overclocking guides that give you an "idea" what voltages you need for what clocks. .5 on a Q6600 wouldn't even boot at stock, entirely too low. Also, if a motherboard shows something as red.. it's probably best not to assume its wrong and save the BIOS.

If you get it working again, I highly suggest setting it all to stock and reading more before going further. Don't ignore something when your BIOS turns a voltage red.

Alright, so there's this thing on my motherboard. It's quite odd to be honest, CPU VCORE Over-Voltage is set to 0.+ after that. So I believe the high voltage would be the one in red, since I can go up to only a max of 0.63000V, odd eh?

But yo, thanks to the guy who told me to unplug it, I repped you.

Did you get it working then?

I've never had BIOS like that but I believe thats just stock voltage plus whatever voltage you specify in that setting. So if your CPU is at 1.325v, and you set that to +.5, you would be at 1.825v. That's WAY too high. I'm not 100% sure on this, but I think thats how those BIOS work.

Keep it at 0, and overclock. After you become unstable, try setting it to one of the lowest settings, which should only increase it by +.01 or so. I personally don't even set voltages to anything that is even "yellow" in my BIOs.

Exactly.

I'm not a big fan of those BIOS setups as you kinda have to assume what the "default" voltage is and then add or subtract the volts.

Anyways, glad you got it working. thumb.gif

^^^^ you sir are correct. but it runs off stock voltage plus the setting he used.

i believe that would make it 1.625 which is still insanely high for that cpu.

if it keeps working ok OP your really lucky.......coulda fried it completely.

Alright thanks, would you like a screenshot of the BIOS? I wouldn't mind uploading one. I need some help on the voltage, because my FSB Frequency is set at 400, roughly 3.6GHz, around there. I need it to be stable, cause I want to get the most out of my ram.

Yes, I also got it working.

Hate to double post, but what do you think I should in set in my BIOS setup, not a big fan of zero point whatever voltage, kinda odd to me. I'm not sure at the moment on what to set it to. I need 3.6GHz to be stable to be able to use my ram properly.

Unless you have a Q6600 G0, 3.6GHz is probably not going to happen. If you have a older version of the Q6600, you will probably get ~3.2GHz. Getting the most of your RAM isn't the most important factor in my opinion. I would try getting 3.2GHz stable before moving to 3.6. After you get that stable, with good temps, you will know what your headroom is like.

I know EXACTLY what you are going through because I also wanted to get the most out of my RAM on my Q6600. It didn't happen tho, and I ended up at 3.42GHz. Even on my newer computer, I have DDR3 2000 ram running at ~DDR3 1532.

EDIT: If you are on stock cooling as your signature says, you won't even get 3GHz. Personally wouldn't even overclock it at all on stock.

I'm using a Scythe CPU Cooler, some Japanese brand.

In CPU-Z it says it's G0 somewhere there, does that count? I used to have 3.2GHz, but wanted to get the most out of my ram recently.

Edit: It says "Revision: G0" in CPU-Z.
