Help in overclocking Q6600 on P5K motherboard

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello, I'm new to overclocking and I have done some research yet I find this subject very daunting.
I tried to overclock my Q6600 to a moderate speed, these are the settings I did, as a whole, to my BIOS, I have changed nothing else, please inform me if I should.
System Specs:
NVIDIA 8800GTX 768 MB
6GB RAM DDR3 1066MHZ
Q6600 2,4 GHZ
P5K Motherboard

Bios Changes:


I have locked PCIe @ 100Mhz
Disabled both Spread Spectrum
Disabled Q-Fan
Disabled C1E

Voltage Settings:
CPU: 1,4
CPU PLL voltage : 1,5
DRAM: 1,5 ( spec voltage)
FSB Termination Voltage : 1,3
North Bridge Voltage : 1,4
South Bridge Voltage : Auto

Set Memory to DDR3-800MHZ
5-5-5-12
FSB: 333

These settings worked and CPU-Z shows 3000MHZ Core Speed.

Now, here's the problem:

Running Core Temp while running a game like Star Wars The Old Republic makes my processor have about 81 Degrees Temperature. And Idle it has about 61-63.
Before Overclocking, I would get about 45-50 Idle and about 60-62 in game.

Can I do some tweaks in order formy temperature to be lower, or do just have to buy a cooler?
