E6600 stock cooling

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Basically im really new to OCing. I read the main intel sticky and im still a little confused.
I want to OC my E6600 to about as far as stock cooling will take it. I also heard that my RAM will OC good as well, the timings are 5-5-5-15.
Any help is much appreciated but a step by step guide would be tops. I searched related threads on the topic but none helped me, if there is one thread that has started already please point me to it.
Cheers.

You should start by raising your MCH voltage by 0.1v perhaps 0.2v, touching the NB heatsink to make sure its not insanely hot, then instead of doing math to choose a multiplier, the p5b bios does the math for you and as you select an appropriate memory frequency, raise your FSB clock, your cpu clock and memory clock will begin to rise. You will want to raise your memory voltage when you need a few more mhz(50-100mhz) more and try to keep your ram overclocked a bit. You will be able to see in bios that the memory speed options displayed increase as you overclock(raise fsb) when the memory setting you have selected starts going higher than you know it can do, select a lower setting, (800mhz will increase to 900ish and you may need to select 766 or so to be stable) you are changing the divider, its just that the bios shows the actual memory speeds instead.

Slowly increase the fsb and test for stability on the way. When you fail a stability test, you either need more voltage somewhere (probably vcore) or something is too hot to keep stable. Experiment and try not to loose too much sleep You will not need to raise the e6600's vcore until you start passing 3ghz

Im stumped on the very 1st step!

The BIOS(ive flashed it to the latest version) doesn't have a MCH voltage option, and all the other voltage settings are on auto, i cant raise the volts by certain increments : it only has these option ie; auto, 1.05v,1.23v.

right now I'm doing the same thing you are doing except my ram sucks so you might fare a little better.
go into the bios under jumperless settings change the overclock to manual.
change the FSB termination to 1.4 ICH to about 1.025, vcore to 1.3250 ram to whatever is recomended and the northbridge can also go up to about 1.45 I believe it is. disable spread spectrum.

for FSB speed go up to 400 range.


then go to cpu configuration in the bios.
enable the multiplier and then change hte multiplier to 8x


now go to the chipset configuration and then into northbridge.there is an option for the read SPD by default to disabled. now change your timings to I would say stock for now.

when you reboot it should work.

again these are the settings I'm using only difference my FSB isn't quite so high due to the cheap centon ram which is limiting me to about 355 -375 FSB right now




also make sure you keep an eye on your cpu temps.

should be running right around 55*C for the cpu and at around 32-33* for the mobo. you don't want to get much higher then that.


if this doesn't work turn the power off on the back of the main power supply reboot to defaults and come back. I will double check my settings

Here is what I use for a 24/7 opps. But remember, I'm using a Tuniq Tower 120 and the temps are 33c idle and 43c for full load.

Enjoy:

__________

Although I've changed some setting there, for example, I gave the CPU Frequency a 334 and the DRAM Frequency a 1000mhz on a 2.30V that now is 100% stable.

I've let all the power saving features on (enabled) so that my CPU even overclocked will consume less energy and therefore the frequency will change from 2.0GHZ to the full 3.0GHZ when needed/full load.

I use a 2:3 ratio (which gives me a 1000mhz RAM Frequency) but if you decide to run with a 1:1 ratio then the DRAM Frequency will read 664mhz or a 4:5 ratio which will be a 835mhz.
With your RAM, I'd suggest a 4:5 ratio but with 4-4-4-12 timings and a 2.20v.

Hehe, you have almost the exact setup as me...good choice of hardware

I dont know why bother with overclocking right now since your system can handle anything thats thrown at it.

I'm wondering how far I could take an E6300 on stock... because I'll probably use stock unless i can cough up an extra £35 for a Tuniq

nasgul why not have him try the 400MHZ fsb and 8 for the multiplier?

I like that too but.....I just don't see a point of having to run the CPU at full speed 100% of the time.

I used to run it 450x7 but going from that to 334x9 have had almost no impact at all but with a 450x7 you can't run EIST and with the 334x9 I can, so my CPU doesn't have to be running at full speed, but only when it's needed.
post #10 of 10
For EIST you have to keep the voltage on auto to get full advantage of it correct? it seems when doing that if you do run the cpu at auto when it does run at full speed the voltage goes way higher then if I manually set it myself. I know though at . but then again I usually have F@H and bionic running so eist doesn't do me a lot of good either.


EDIT: ok yup I did try it again real quick at least with putting the voltage on auto. it sucks voltage at full load went from 1.28 to 1.38. so that isn't that cool. but even right now with the FSB at 355 I am able to enable speedstep without any problems there I just prefer to keep the voltage manually set
