E6600 Multiplier

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
i have a qiuck question, i want to buy a new system, an "E6600" and a "Asus P5N32 SLI SE Deluxe (C2D)".

the mainboard supports "ASUS CPU Lock Free", so a friend off mine said you cant set the multiplier at the E6600 chip, but he is not really a genious in hardware stuff.

so, can i set the multiplier now or is only the multiplier 9 available

thx for help

I think the 965P chipset cna go down to 6 but otherwise no, the E6600 is locked. Otherwise, noone would buy the X6800 .

the thing is, i want to get the system run in synchron mode, "1066 Chip/1066 FSB/1066 Ram".

is there any ohter method available, a modded bois or somthing else to get a LockFree multiplier ?

You could easily attain your 'synch' clocks...just go to 533 fsb with a 7x multi.....maybe 8. Check those temps though, dont wanna loose a C2 this early.

I think all the CPUs except x6800 and the FX series are hard-locked in the silicon, so you can't adjust the multiplier higher than the factory setting. You could switch it down a notch (down to 6x) but you can't get it higher than 9x. A modded BIOS can't change that, maybe it can give more OCing options (voltages/timings, etc) but it can't unlock.

You can only move it down with a BIOS that allows it. I'm not familiar with the BIOS for that board (I will never use a NVIDIA chipset board), so can't say if that one supports it or not.


Not sure what you meant by your "synchron mode" posting.....the C2D runs natively at 1066 FSB.......most people are taking the C2D's up to 1600 FSB, some even as high as 2000 FSB on the P5B Deluxe, but you'll never get close to that on a NVIDIA board. 1320 maybe, but not much more........

Are you planning on going SLI? If yes, then I recommend the Asus P5W DH Deluxe and modded drivers. It is a much better overclocker (the board you mentioned was also one I considered until I found out it still uses old Nforce revision chipsets and is considered a very limited overclocker). As mentioned above all Conroe's are upwards locked except the X6800. Apparently though, there is a possibility of unlocked multi's with the Asus P5B (Although bear in mind that the two PCI-E slots are 16x/4x, not 16x16x like the board you mentioned or 8x8x like the Asus P5W DH Deluxe (975x chipset)

http://www.anandtech.com/mb/showdoc.aspx?i=2822

"The new 0507 BIOS for the P5B Deluxe, dated 8/10/2007, has two new and exciting features:

Provide better maximum overclocking.
Add the ability to adjust the multiplier of most Conroe CPUs even if they are not Extreme Edition.

Even more exciting is that ASUS says they have found a way to unlock up or down most Conroe chips. This will be a significant new feature that is highly desired by many Core 2 Duo buyers. It didn't take but a few minutes for us to get the new BIOS flashed and a Core 2 Duo chip mounted to check this out."

"First, we should note that certain Gigabyte P965 boards also allow downward unlocks with the latest BIOS releases. ASUS joins them in offering this feature, and they have broken new ground with the 0507 BIOS for the P5B Deluxe. The ability to specify multipliers - even if it's only downward unlocked - is so significant that every other manufacturer will have to follow suit or lose market share to the two motherboard giants.

At present, every Core 2 Duo chip we tried unlocked down (this included both B1 and B2 steppings); however, none of our samples unlocked both up and down. ASUS tells us that many Core 2 Duo chips also unlock upwards, but the upper limit is around a 14X multiplier with those chips that do unlock in both directions. If true, we're certain those chips that can unlock completely will be quickly figured out by enthusiasts and those models and steppings will become the most highly desired Core 2 Duo chips."


Very nice, unlocked multi on lower end conroe.


Whether or not this becomes available for the P5W DH Deluxe is debatable but likely.

i think i take the "P5W DH Deluxe", i thought the nforce chipset was a bit newer, not only updated.

SLI, not really, my new VGA is the "gforce 7900GX2" , so its SLI all ready, and i dont plan to buy a second one, to expensiv .

But i dont know what for RAM´s i take, the "OCZ" here or the "A-DATA", i must sleep a night over that, both of them have good timings and i hear nothing bad about the Modules.

thx for help

Heres my link. I have a P5B. Its got a lot more.....I just want some better cooling before i run 500fsb daily. All P5's with the new bios allow you to lower the multi's for C2D's.
