Q6600 wont boot past 344 freq - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I'm a bit curious what kind of cooling are you going to run right now I have my Q6600 at 3ghz air cooled and getting like 45-50c idle temps
I just bought a H50 just to push further and have temps I'm more comfortable with

Yes.
E5700 has a high 15x multipler.
Q6600 has a low 9x multipler.

My MSI G41M-P25 motherboard maxes out around 333 MHz FSB.
Even if it could overclock higher, I would not do it because it's a cheap, low quality, weak motherboard.

If you don't know the difference between a robust and a weak motherboard, then, in my opinion, you should not be overclocking.

As Parol quoted, Tuniq 120. And MX-4 paste. Highest temp I've ever seen was 50c during a 24 hour Prime95 test. I'm at around 22c idle. This is at 3096Mhz and +1mV vCore.

Yeah sorry, pretty sure I said earlier that I was an overclocking noob. Pretty sure you were at one point too. We all have to learn somewhere. I've read a bunch of overclocking guides, all have been motherboard specific, apparently I missed the one(s) that old you what to look for and avoid in a motherboard. I also didn't purchase this motherboard for overclocking, I bought this pc pre-built a few years ago as a mediocre gaming pc and it did ok till recently. It was cheap new, it's been cheap to upgrade, and I'm trying to keep it that way. Even if I were to blow this up, I understand that's a risk I'm taking by pushing my pc to do things it is not intended to. Even if my PC exploded right now, I'd feel that I got my money's worth out of it. I am trying to learn, sorry if that in some way aggravated you.

I threw a Q6600 on a G31 (which are better than G41) and stress tested it at about 3.4GHz, just for the hell of it to see if it could take it. Smoke came off the MOSFETs about 10 minutes in, board = dead.

These are budget boards/chipsets that have BIOS settings for overclocking but are not engineered to do so. Because they're cheap, the power deliveries will be cheap as well.

I'd poke around the OCN classifieds for a used 775 board that was made for overclocking. X48, X38 or P45 based. All you need is something capable of 400-420FSB with good power phases, good NB cooling and good VRM cooling.

Thanks! I'm on the search.
