Conroe E6700 on DQ6

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey, I know this is topic is about OC.. I just need to know anyone here got E6700 on DQ6 and have OC it? I just need to know the settings. One more thing, question - what determines the Clocking? The FSB settings or the one that you use to multiply like 300 *10 or the multiplier is for the FSB?? FSB the bigger the number better or lower? what happen if i put too high or too low?

First thing Id suggest is getting to know what does what when overclocking, so start with this link. After you kinda have an idea of how to do it, then get to it. Just asking for someone to post settings for you simply wont do you any good, If you want to overclock, you have to learn how to do it incase something goes wrong, and theres always the chance that something will go wrong. Anyways please fill out your system specs by clicking on the USER CP tab at the top of every page.

Also if you take a little time to read through some of the post's in this section you will find plenty of info to help you along the way!!

Hi firstknight, welcome to the forums! I believe what Adeoliver was trying to explain to you, is that each set up is different, what one person may be able to achieve with certain parts will be different from what another person can get with the same parts! Because of this it is very hard for us to give you a guideline. The best way to overclock your rig is to just start moving the FSB in increments (5mhz or so) see if you can boot into windows, stress test, after passing, move the fsb up more!

The FSB is indeed the number that you use with the multiplier of 10 and as you increase it you will get more speed and with it the RAM fsb will increase.

oh... but there are some configuratino that states.. FSB400MHz but then their settings are like 300*10...

i check my DQ6 there is two settings... one is up together with the multiplier... the lower part FSB...is the one up togetehr with the multiplier detemines the clock?

Yes, the FSB and the multi determine the clock speed. However, usually having a higher FSB is better than having a higher clock speed. For instance a CPU at 3Ghz with a 300FSB (x10 multi) would be faster than the same CPU at 3Ghz with a 250FSB and a x12 multi.

As has already been mentioned, but I will re-state as it is a pet peeve of mine.......simply taking someone else's settings and plugging them into your system is not the best method of overclocking. First of all, it may or may not work on your system. Second of all, if it doesn't work, how are you going to know how to fix it or what to change to make it work?

Hopefully someone with a similar board or more familiar with Gigabyte's BIOS setups can give you some pointers on where to find the settings you will need to change, and then you can make the small changes needed to start overclocking yourself.

Generally speaking, there should be a section to adjust the FSB, the vCore, Vdimm, RAM speed and RAM timings as well as the ability to set the PCI and PCIe bus speeds.

thanks for your advice.. I have gotten some info on someone who have the same board and conroe. so its much easier to move as I know roughly wat is wat. Dun wanna make some wierd mistake altho i have done so. I encounter one problem where my LCD display nothing and i have clear my cmos settings.. hehe.. by shorting it.. hehe... phew.. thank god for the manual..

is DDR voltage = vDIMM??? cos i dun have vDIMM in my option?? what is the benefit to adjust the PCIe bus speed and the overvoltage?

One more question. How do i know wat multiplier to use? 2? 2.5? 3? mine is 1GB 800MHz DDR2 Non-ECC Low-Latency CL4 (Kit of 2)4-4-4-12-12.0V. I have change to 5-5-5-15 and volt of +0.2. but how do i really determine which multiplier is better? for eg i have clock to 295*10.

Thanks...

Your trying to develop a stable OC, so leave your RAM timings at their stock numbers, until you reach a setting that they dont like, then increase your Voltage to your RAM first, before raising your latency clocks. You should not need to adjust your RAM timings until at least past 875mhz, even then, changing every single number is way too much, most of the time. *Some people prefer to 'loose' their RAM timings up all the way, and then start OC'ing their cpu, this works fine too, but you have to re-tune your RAM after you find a suitable clock speed for your rig.

Good luck, write down all of your settings, and proceed slowly.
