Q6600 P5N-D overclocking

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi newbie here..

I'm trying to overclock Q6600 on ASUS P5N-D.. but non has been successful.. Even a minimal overclock is failing (no POST or reboot shortly after using)

Is this because I have ****ty RAM ??? (Hynix PC2-5300U DDR2-666)

I tried these 4 set ups I found..

This set up boots but Window restart after a short time of use..

FSB 1333
RAM auto
Vcore 1.32500
Dram Auto
HT 1.3
NB 1.3
SB Auto


All of these give beeeeeeeep and no boot..

1)
Vcore 1.51v
NB 1.44v
HT 1.44v
SB Auto
Multiplier 9x
FSB 1600

2)
Vcore 1.42v
NB 1.44v
HT 1.44v
SB Auto
Multiplier 8x
Fsb 1600


3)
Some setup I found on youtube:

Cooling is doing very well.. under 40 no load.. and under 50 on load...

I've had a LOT of experience with this motherboard, it was the second board that I used that didn't come in a pre-built computer.

I'm going to tell you right off the bat that you're better off with a better motherboard. The reason being is that yes, the board supports SLI, and yes, the board will (with tweaks, and a lot of lost hair) overclock. The bad news is that you will NOT see the same performance out of this board as you would with another overclocking socket 775 board (P43, P45 or X38, X48). This is because the nVidia chipset does not perform as well, and as a result your Gigaflops performance drops significantly. My Q9450 in the P5N-D would only overclock to 1500 FSB (from stock 1333), and the Gigaflops performance from that was in the low 30's. Similarly clocked Q9450's in other chipsets easily got 50-60 gigaflops.

To summarize, expect to see about half to two-thirds (50-66%) of the processor performance that you would in a tried and true Intel chipset.

IF BUYING A NEW MOTHERBOARD IS NOT AN OPTION:
1333 might be the highest you will see, if not perhaps 1400. You will need to drop the RAM multiplier. This is a limit on the chipset. The 750i was and remains a pain to overclock. You can up the volts all day but the vdroop will set it to .10 lower or more. You can try searching the forums for the pencil mod which will bring this up to around .02 to .04 but even then you're probably only going to be able to push it to 1400.

Yes. I did think the board sucked..
But I only want to overclock slightly... 3Ghz.. I will be very happy.. And Ive seen many do it with this board on internet...
But I don't understand why my rig is not working...

Could you maybe give me punch-in numbers..(I'm really newbie.. I could only understand about half of what you said..)
That would be life saver..

You can achieve 3 Ghz by raising the FSB to 333 (rated 1333). 333*9 will get you 3 Ghz. Just bear in mind that this also overclocks the memory which is why you might not be stable. Your memory might be clocking to 832 Mhz and it might not like that very much so you'll need to drop the RAM to the next level down (should give you an option for 533 which should be fine).

okay. So i will change fsb to 333 and change ram to somefhing like 533 and i won't touch any voltage or anything else... is thag good?

It might be, if it's not add a bit more vcore (known as CPU Voltage) or similar in the BIOS. Though you'll put the RAM at 666/667MHz with the RAM multiplier, you'll see it change when you change the multiplier on it. You should be fine at stock voltages though, if you need more just add a two-three settings up more (in the BIOS) and report back here smile.gif

Wow. Thanks a lot Matt!
I tried FSB 1333, RAM as 'unlinked' , so RAM stayed as 667Mhz (default, didn't touch at all..)

I tried using 3D Maya (I'm no gamer but CG artist) and it gave me about 2 more FPS of playback..(That's big!)

I'm ruining Prime95, and my temp is staying under 50, and I see no sign of abnormality yet.

Now I'm thinking I can push it a bit more..
Could you assist me where I can touch ?

On second thought, I think I need to watch it a bit more..

I had blue screen after waking up from Hibernation..

It then looped trying to boot about 2 times.. then booted fine...


I don't understand.. Prime95 with large FTTs torture for 12 minutes was fine..

Is there any way to keep this setting but make it a bit stabler?

Hibernation is the devil! Difference between hibernation and sleep is that it saves the system state to the hard drive instead of the memory. In essence, it's a really good way to kill your hard drive faster and causes other problems too. Don't use hibernate, the power savings are a few watts at best.

If you still experience problems after that, you might just not want to put it in sleep mode. If it's still unstable you're going to need to drop the clock a bit.

It's not just hibernation.. One time it just blue screened after Windows booted fine and I was working on some art software... and watching youtube on the side..
That time, hibernation or sleep wasn't involved at all...
