I can't even OC my CPU by 1%?!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I tried overclocking my cpu because apparently it's bottlenecking my GPU. Now the problem is, after reading and watching all these vids and posts on the Q6600...nothing works
When I exit and save changes, my computer restarts and then runs with a black screen...basically doesn't run.
Then when i restart it again, it'll power on then off within a second.
Restarting it for a third time gives me the "overclock failed" message with options...
Help? D:
So stressed...
thanks in advance guys!

I can help you out here. Right now I am running a Q6600 G0 on the Asus Rampage Formula. Can you take a picture of your BIOS settings and post them in here? I want to see everything to do with FSB settings and the Voltage settings.

You need to find a good starting point. I'll attach pictures of my BIOS so that you can see what I need from yours.

I'm having a hard time figuring out what you have changed.

Did you change any of those voltage settings yourself? If so, all of those voltages are WAY to high for the frequency you have your FSB set to, and all you are doing is having that silicon chip continuously resist unwanted energy. This translates to heat and a lowered lifespan of the CPU. That CPU PLL voltage you have set is extremely high for having no overclock - it worries me. Default all of those settings.

If you find yourself not knowing where to begin, then I suggest you do some more reading on this particular BIOS. I want you to read through this article, and re-read it again, and again, until you fully understand the FSB Strap concept. Understanding this is critical and will make overclocking that CPU much easier (speaking first hand). You also need to understand every one of those voltage settings and what they're good for. If you don't know this, there's no way you can overclock effectively. CPU PLL voltage is not the same as Vcore, etc.

You said that you can't get your CPU to OC by 1%, but I haven't seen anything from your FSB/CPU settings that gives me a baseline for diagnostics - it would appear that you haven't even started. Speak up if you have any generic overclocking questions if you're trying to get started with this; I'd rather answer too many questions than you kill your CPU or NB.

These pics are the default value I returned to after I failed to OC. Nothing here has been changed...I only put the stuff to manual to let you see some stats. :/ I'll have a read over the article

You should be able to set those voltages to AUTO. If not, then those voltages look rather high at first glance. It could be because you're running on an X38 and mine is X48. Either way, have a look at that article and try to understand the FSB strap concept. Once you do, default values are the way to start out from a good point.
