E6600 clock problem and other

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, new clocker here. I was thinking of clocking my E6600 CPU to about 3 Ghz. Now being a total beginner to this clocking stuff I started of course reading about it. Thing is everyone is talking about FSB and multipliers, the closest I get to that is something called CPU Clock Ratio which is at 9X and the other thing is CPU Host Clock Ratio. Thats the two stuff I see has anything to do with CPU settings, rest is just basic settings I guess.

If anyone could explain how I get this FSB thing on my list I would be very happy. Now I realize to most of you this is a simple problem, but Im not really a computer guy, I have just recently taken interest in learning about computers partly cause I havent had the time, and Im sick of feeling helpless everytime I get a small computer problem.
Now I dont know if you guys need to know anything about my system but in chase you do:

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3
Power supply: Hiper Power supply ATX 580 W
Case: Cooler Master Wave Master

Also since Ive learned that CPU temperature is important and I am running with the basic cooler you get when you buy the CPU. I would be interested to hear what you guys think of this CPU cooler I was thinking of buyin:
Thermaltake BigTyp 120 VX CL-P0310-01. Someone recommended it to me.

Since Ive already mentioned I want to learn more stuff about computers I was also hopin to get some good links perhaps if possible on how to learn Windows better I currently use XP, well I had to rather, Windows2000 would only find 125 gigabyte out of my 320 harddrive. I got some problem at the beginning with this new computer I got H: instead of C:, and when I tried to install the latest graphic drivers for my graphic card it complained on how it couldnt find C:/Something something/blabla cant remember more. Of course I started searching on how to fix this, and I found some link to Microsofts homepage on how to fix it in the registry, naturally I tried it and it didnt work. So all that was left was to re-install Windows, I never managed to find out on how to fix the problem and I dont like to leave things unfinished so to speak. So if anyone knows what the problem could've been please please please tell me, its stuck in my head.

So there, to all people who read this now Thank you for your time and all possible answers. Sorry for all the spelling mistakes if any .

I kindna skim through your post, so didn't really read the whole thing.

You just want an explanation? If so heres an example

FSB-333Mhz
DRAM-666Mhz
CPU Ratio-9x

K notice how the FSB=333? if you take 333x9 (which is the CPU ratio (or multi)). Then you'll get 3000Mhz or 3.0Ghz. The ram is Double Data meaning it doubles the amount of FSB, so 333x2=666mhz

The true FSB is quad pump (only for intel). So 333x4=1333mhz (1332 to be exact). So that is your true external FSB. The 333FSB = Internal FSB

As for the harddrive problem, you need to update windows to the lastest service pack

Sorry for the confusion, altough u made it little clearer on how to clock, my point was, I dont see anything called FSB in bios at all, if this CPU Clock Ratio which was at 9X is another name for FSB or if CPU Host Clock Ratio is FSB.

Go to manual overlocking and tell me whats on it

If not, check and see which resetting is at = 266Mhz

Narrow it down then i'll see if i can come up with something

I didnt see anything called manuel overclocking in bios, and if u meant the setting that is at 266 I didnt see anything at that neither. I shall try make it a little clearer to as what I see.

Standard CMOS
Advanced BIOS features
Integrated Peripherals
Power Management Supply
PnP/Pcl Configurations
PC Health
MB Intellegent Tweaker (M.I.T)

it is under the last one M.I.T I see this CPU Clock Ratio and CPU Host Clock Ratio, I also see CPU Host Frequency which is at 200 Mhz, currently disabled.

And forgive me but I lied before when I said I dont see anything called FSB, I do see something called FSB OverVoltage Control which is set to Normal.

Advance Bios Feature, its in there for sure

You should see a number in there showing 266mhz

Go to the very bottom, M.I.T.... It'a the option after the first 2... After the number nine on the right hand side. Change it from auto to manual, it will then allow you to change it from 100-700. Change the number to 333.

I went to check Advanced Bios Feature all I saw was this:
Hard Disk Boot Priority [Press enter]
First Disk Boot Device [CDROM]
Second Boot Device [Hard Disk]
Third Boot Device [CDROM]
Password check [Setup]
Limit CPUID Max. to 3 [Disabled]
No-Execute Memory Protect [Enabled]
CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) [Enabled]
CPU Thermal Monitor 2(TM2) [enabled]
CPU EIST Function [Enabled]
Virtualization Technology [Enabled]
Init Display First [PEG]

jcbzhnsr1:
Just to be on the safe side here... you mean first enable CPU Host Clock Control, then change CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) from 200 to 333?

I tried to change it a little, my current CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) is at 200 Disabled and Memory Frequency is at 667 Mhz. Now... I had CPU Host Frequency at minimum 100 and maximum 600 dont know if its different depending on something since you had 700. However when I changed CPU Host Frequency to 333, Memory Frequency changed to 833 does it seem correct?

Also if I have gotten this straight now the CPU Clock Ratio which is at 9X takes the CPU Host Frequency times 9, which in that chase is as Mikey122687 said 333*9=2997.

But wouldnt that mean that my current speed is 200*9=1800? Or does that has something to do with the fact that CPU Host Clock Control is Disabled?
