Pushing E6600 on P5W DH Deluxe

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hey everybody. its been a while since ive been on this forum. anyways, i just did my first build ever.

Main Specs:
Intel C2D E6600
Asus P5W DH Deluxe
Corsair XMS2 DDR2-800 1GB Dual Channel (2x512MB) (4-4-4-12)
Zalman CNPS9700LED HSF
Thermaltake Tsunami Dream Case
250GB HD
Asus EAX1900 512MB CF
620W Enermax



any ideas on how i can push this thing further? im running BIOS 1602.
BIOS Settings:
FSB 410
DRAM DDR2-820MHz
Mem V 1.95V
Vcore 1.2875V
CPU Ratio 7 (default 9)

i havent done any major stress tests yet. im just trying to see how far i can push this thing. but so far im able to play farcry, halo, and ghost recon without restarting or anything.

I really suggest that you run some stress tests... cause it's not sure that it's stable...
Btw, whats your temps? Don't exceed 61 degrees on the CPU!!

Why have you dropped the multiplier to 7, instead of 9??

First of all, you may want to think about upping your multi a little, if you wanna go much higher. P5WDH cannot do the kind of super high fsb that some others (like P5B deluxe) can do.

I've seen people get them into the mid 400's, but don't expect to get alot higher, even if you mod them. I'd turn up your multi to stock and see what the cpu can do. For OC'ing, you have to find the max for cpu, mobo, and ram, cause they'll all have a wall somewhere.

If you turn your multi up, and your ram speed down, then you can see what your cpu, and only your cpu can do. Then start tweaking the other stuff afterwards, and find it's max too. You want to know what is holding your OC back, process of elimination will tell you.


I'll tell you right now too, if you wanna go much over 3ghz, you need more vcore. Also, as said check your temps always, and you need to do stability testing for sure. Have you checked your bios settings against generally recommended settings?

I would raise the vdimm to about 2.1 or 2.2. With the P5W you can get to about 450-460 FSB stable. With the FSB that high you'll most likely have to run a divider on the ram.

Raise the vcore more as well. Depending on load temps you should be able to go to 1.425 without any worries. The 6600s can generally reach 3.4~3.7 on air.

Which 6600 stepping do you have?
