Help with Q6600 oc on Asus P5B Deluxe wifi

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Ok I've worked out all of the basics like changing FSB and adjusting vcore.
I've worked on the ram timings a bit cause I have 2 different sets of ram with different timings/Mhz.

I've set the vcore in the bios to 1.33v but as funny as this is I checked the hardware monitor in the bios and it was reading 1.296v on vcore max so I've guessing that's what you would call vdroop.

I haven't tested to see if it's stable yet. My ram is running at 667mhz which is the rated mhz on the Samsung ram I have but I'm not sure if it would be a good idea or a bad idea to go over it once I find out if it's stable or not.

My fsb at the moment is set to 333x9 = 3.0Ghz. If it's stable I wouldn't mind going over that but I'm just not sure about going over the rams rated mhz and weather my vcore will be a issue at all.

I installed this board into my rig yesterday and it came out of a computer someone dumped but surprisingly it's working perfectly.

I know that many boards allow you to change the RAM speed by adjusting the ratio of FSB to RAM (I think). Google the crap out of the settings options your motherboard offers and you can find if there is such an adjustment to be made.

I wouldn't worry about the BIOS reading a little lower. I noticed my reading was lower in the BIOS and Windows so I turned on the Load Line Calibration and it helped get it back up a little, and it also made the voltage more stable under load.

My RAM is 533 and runs at 1066....is that what you mean by your RAM? 667 but runs at 1333?

I'm still learning about this myself, but I wanted to try to give you a head start here until someone more knowledgeable steps in.

Yea I've been searching around but the only things on settings seem to be older bios versions which have things the newer ones don't but I have been going by one of those.

My Samsung ram is 667mhz and my Kingston is 800mhz ram, I have adjusted the ram timings and settings so that my ram doesn't go over 667mhz with a 3ghz overclock but I'm just not sure if the samsung ram will handle going over that.

I hope you get the knowledge you need. I haven't overclocked since I had my P4 years ago.

I see. That RAM will limit your overclock for sure. If you run the Kingston RAM only, you can make them run with a 400 MHz FSB if your motherboard can run at that speed. You would need to get your multiplier down to 8x, but you'll have a good 3.2 CPU speed and your CPU should do it fine without much voltage and without much heat.

Yea that's what I was thinking. When I had my old board in I used one of the samsung sticks and a 1x 2gb Kingston hyperx ram stick but I only used the samsung with the hyperx cause I couldn't overclock or change anything on that board.

And since I had the 2x 1gb of kingston and samsung lying around I thought not to use the hyperx as running dual channel on my ram out be better then not having it. If I had another stick of the same hyperx ram I would just install the hyperx without the ram I have now.

Just run the Higher ram and then push up your OC.

the slower ram will limit you OC

just look at the temp don't go up more than 65 C and push it . about the vcore don't go up more than 1,5v and you will be ok. i run the ram underclocked because it is slower too.

Are you saying just run 2gb ram or swap out the 667mhz ram and use my 1x 2gb stick of hyperx ram with the kingston ram that's already in it.

The temps seem fine as they don't go over 45c and my vcore is at 1.296 and so far seems stable.
Thanks for the tips on what temp and vcore I can go up to.

I might just stay at 3ghz for now and maybe get different ram later.

Try 1.33 volts, 1.26 FSB Termination, 400Mhz FSB, 8x Multiplier on the CPU

I was running 3.2 with 1.31 volts and all other settings the same. You may need more volts, but if it's stable, then you can try reducing the voltage one notch at a time until you've reached stability you're comfortable with, then I add one more notch of voltage as a safety margin to make sure it doesn't unexpectedly crash later.

**Remove your Samsung RAM, and make sure both Kingston RAM sticks are in the matched color slots. You can upgrade your RAM later to 2x2GB sticks of higher quality if you need the memory.

I'll just leave it at 3Ghz for now and leave the ram as is since when I had 3gb of ram I had low ram issues since I tend to multitask allot so if I remove 2gb of ram my system will become useless to me.
