Can I get some help on my new E6600 GF 7950GT rig?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
So heres the specs:

CPU :
Intel Core 2 Duo(Conroe) E6600 @ 2.4Ghz standard air cooling
Video card :
MSI nVidia GeForce 7950GT 512MB with heatsinks
Motherboard :
P5B DLX
System and installed programs/games harddrive :
Samsung Harddrive 250.0GB 7200RPM SATA II 3.5" Noise Guard 8MB
RAM :
Geil 2GB (2x1GB) DDR2 PC6400 800MHz Ultra 4-4-4-12
PSU :
Thermaltake PSU TR2 550W
Case :
Xclio A380 Super Tower Housing W/2x250mm System Fan 1x120mm System Fan

So I've seen a lot of people pushing their E6600s upwards to 3.2Ghz per core on this forum now, but all seem to have some RAMs and cases and mobos i never heard of, so I thought I'd start my own thread so that I don't burn my CPU over some detailed I overlooked in some other thread.

So basically what I want is to over clock my CPU, but I have never done any more over clocking than pushing my current Intel Celeron from 2.4ghz to 2.5 . Yeah, I know, I'm one bad ass over clocker ...

A detailed walk through with links to DLs for apps I need would be really helpful, but I am not a total idiot, I know my way around a computer pretty well, it's just with these kinds of things, I don't want to act confident and bur anything.

Thanks in advance,
newcomer Instinct

Ok first off add your specs to your profile by going to your CP settings.

Then download a couple of tools:
CPUz
TAT
SuperPi Just for benching
Prime95 for stability

Then will get started ...

Ah, yes, google, we meet again...lol...thing about googling proggies like these is that you don't know if you are getting the versions you need.

EDIT: Only one of those there I got to DL was CPU-Z...TAT didnt have a link, and the other two said "oops, you cant download this file."

Ok, so basically this here is what I recommend for starters:


Quote:
P5B Deluxe + Core E6600 ........well, try this:

______

BTW, the CPU frequency, set it at 334 and RAM will be like 1001 and next you'll see the timings but before that, set the memory voltage to 2.30 because the P5B Deluxe undervolts the RAM and if you set it to 2.25v, it'll be 2.20 in Window which is not enough but at 2.30v (2.25v in Windows) RAM is stable.

http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=128537

You can also use a 1:1 ratio if you want bu then the DDR2 would read 668mhz, exept you could run RAM latencies like 3-3-3-8 @ 2.20v.
Now, if you want to go any higher but can't get higher than that, this guide here will explain you what else is there to do in order to get it stable: P5B Deluxe: BIOS screens for maximum overclocking success by FCG.

Good luck.

oh damn! I didn't see you had the stock heat-sinkk/fan, that's horrible, if possible I think you should get a Thermaltake Big Typhoon or one of those Ninja cooler. The one with aluminum fins and copper heat-pipes are the best type of heat-sink for an Intel CPU.

I'd do that first before I do any overclocking if I were you. Even if the stock seems to be OK, I never trusted that thing at all.
