P5n21-sli & e6600 - Page 2

Expecially when you are sitting at work and cant seem to stay off of OC.net. I would recommend finding a board that is known to OC well and then maybe seeing if you can return that board to wherever you bought it to see if you can get an exchange.

yeah, I used to be able to do that..... Now I am out of the office all day instead of riding a desk. Oh well....life's little compromises.


The best way to overclock the 6600 is the same as the best way for overclocking all Intel CPUs........start at stock, lock your PCI and PCIe slots at 33 and 100 respectfully, set your RAM speed(something conservative, for a 6600 I would set it at 650Mhz) and slowly increase your FSB by 5Mhz at a time, testing for stabability each time, adding voltage only when needed. Do NOT leave your voltage at AUTO when overclocking. I recommend you run the CPU at 100% load and stock settings and AUTO voltage and see what CPUz and Speedfan or the motherboard software shows as the Vcore being at under load. Then, set your Vcore in the BIOS to about .05v less than that for your first FSB increase......if it fails a stress test, increase 1 step in voltage and try again.

As it was mentioned already, that board is not a good overclocker, I would return it and get either the P5W DH (if you want SLI with hacked drivers), or the P5B Deluxe if you want larger RAIDs and a single video card (or dual card with slightly slower performance with hacked drivers).

Personally, I see no reason for dual cards on most systems, so I would recommend the P5B Deluxe for that 6600 as the 965 is one of the best chipsets right now and will likely get better with newer BIOSs next year.
