Help Ocing E6600 past 3.2ghz w/ only ddr2-533

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
guys, i just overclocked my E6600 to 3.2ghz , but beyond that, it fails to boot to windows. I overclocked it w/ 1.3v which i think is the stock voltage of E6600 and raising the FSB to 356.

Now my question is, how can i overclock my E6600 beyond
3.2 w/o Apacer 2GB ddr2-533 ram.

Should i increase the voltage? how much? what frequency should the ram and ram timing be?

btw, i have an Asus P5W DH and CNPS9500 LED and my temp w/ 3.2 are:

Idle:
cpu: 34c
core 1: 46c
core 2: 46c

Load w/ 2 simultaneous prime 95s at 100% CPU utilization
cpu: 39c
core 1: 53c
core 2: 53c

Generally goes 5 to 6c lower when air conditioning is on.. hehe i live near the equator =) thanks in advance everyone!

Try this......works for me

FSB 400
Multi x 9
Voltage 1.45v

Put all the other voltage settings up one notch.

try ram timings of 5-5-5-15 to start and then tighten them up if you are stable with the above settings

Keep your ram at 1:1 with the cpu. Can't remember where the option is but if you have 400 FSB the option will be 800mhz, your ram should be capable of this

thanks! i just did that but i only used 1.4v and all the other voltage options are still in auto cuz i dont know there stock voltages.
first, i only tried raising the fsb to 378. after i test stability, ill try to raise it to 400fsb

1.4 should be enough, mine runs with 1.4v right now.

Its defineitly worth going straight to 400FSB, the P5 series Asus boards have issues with FSB in the 350-400 range which can cause instability or boot problems

If you leave the other voltage options on auto then they will automatically increase when you go higher with your overclock. If you set them manually then at least you know what they are

do u think my ram can handle 400 FSB? cuz when i choose 400 on my fsb, the ram options in the bios increased to 600 where my ram is only 533..

nweis, 3.4 w/ 1.4v was unstable when i ran dual prime 95s..
now i tried to use 1.425v, ill post again in a few hours if it proved stable.
nweis, thanks a lot joeking! =)

I've just done a bit of reading on your ram and I don't think it will get to 400/800mhz. Your best be will be to do the following.....

Put your FSB at 400 x 9 and in the ram options you should have a list like 1000mhz, 800mhz, 600mhz (I can't remember the exact options, but its something like that). If you choose 800 that will be 1:1 with the FSB (400), chose the option nearest to your rams spec of 533. You should be able to keep the stock timings (CAS 4, I think), probably 4-4-4-12

I think you'll probably need 1.45v to get stable anyway, I started at 1.45v but over the past few weeks I've been able to get it down to 1.4v and stable.
