So why are the core & memory voltages dropped rather than increased for OCing? Somewhere I read that the higher the voltage on a chip the faster speed you can accomplish, and that that is how companies can sell the same chip to run at different "stock" values. Is that information incorrect?

hey was just wondering if this is by chance a good board to try water cooling on.... been thinking about maybe going that route but i thouht i'd maybe see if its a good idea for the board or if its better to just stick to fans

if anyone knows of some good watercooling units too that would be great

Thanks,
Scott

Alright, this is a massive thread, and I can't read through all of it. But I'll get straight to my point.

With Q6600 being the trend of late, I recently picked up this board, a Q6600 and a Thermalright Ultra Extreme 120 with a 120mm Fan.

These are my exact specs:

P5N-E SLI (Flashed with latest Bios)|
Q6600 Go|
Thermalright HR05-SLI NB HS |
Thermalright Ultra Extreme 120 |
OCZ 4GB Platinum Rev 2 800MHz|
EVGA 8800GTX
OCZ GameXstream 700w |
500GB Spin Point Samsung |
DIY Case |
3D Mark 06: 12,226

Now, I'm quite new to this overclocking business, and so I've just simply used the AI overclock at 15% which has comfortably given me a stable overclock equating to:

Core speed: 2759.4 MHz
and Memory clocked at 940Mhz.
Ram timings are 4-3-4-12

This is all with AI overclock. But this isn't good enough for me. I know I can go much further. I keep hearing people reaching speeds up to 4Ghz with my cooler (but rare). I really have no idea how to start with manual overclocks, and I tried with little knowlege, and the result was bad plus it scared the hell out of me, as I'll explain later.

I want to reach at least 3.6Ghz core clock, 3.8 would be great - 4Ghz, would be marvelous.

I've attempted to overclock by upping to voltages and changing the FSB, but I must be doing something wrong. Because everytime I do it (even for mild overclocks), my computer won't get past post and I can't get back into the BIOS, which forces me to take the mobo battery out to reset the bios. This scared the hell out of me, because I actually didn't know how to reset the bios initially.

As such, I'm staying away from what I know little about. Until I am confident with some proper experienced knowlege, I'm not touching those settings manually again. At this point, I'm hoping for some good help/advice on the matter. I hope you guys will be able to help me.

Would so much appreciate it, if you fellow P5N-E SLI brethren would help me on this endeavor

A simple & nice, step by step on how overclocking works with this baby would be nice. Some results from guys with a Q6600 and this board and their results would also be sweet.

Please help me with this quest for glory.
Much appreciated.

Thanks again folks for helping out this mobo's community - you've done a great service ^^,

Cheers.

You might be able to cut down on your search if you look at all of Ravin's posts in this thread. He's the go-to guy about Q6600 on the P5N-E.

Thanks a lot.

Something smells like petrol...

Is it my computer?

***?

owwell.

Yeah, overclocking Q6600 has really been a painful activity today. Really have come to no success aside from a ****ty AI overclock of 15%.

Cheers,

lol...I think I must of got lucky with my board. I've actually been toying with the idea of upgrading to a P35 board and slapping this D820 into the P5NE.

Don't give up hope. Most OC attempts that fall within the statistical range of what is possible that fail are due to RAM. Make sure that your memory and CPU are unlinked with your RAM running at it's stock speed, and go for the best OC you can get on the CPU only. Once you've maxed out the CPU, then start adjusting the RAM.
