Robilar and Cognoscenti
I've tried to get similar results you have have on your E6600 systems. The best performance I get stable is email@example.comFSB@9Multi. I am using the p5n32-e sli with most of the spects. Robilar laid out in his guide (great guide, many thanks) except for: Corsair 8500cs5, 1 BFG 8800GTX, Antec 900 case, Zalman 9700, (2) Thermaltake Extreme Spirit II (north/south). My power settings are:
v.core 1.53125, mem 2.25, NB 1.4, SB 1.55, CPU VTT 1.55. Bios has been updated.
These are bios settings results:
@1490 FSB - Mem auto - No Post
@1485 FSB - mem auto - Failed Otheros Test within 5min - settings below ran Otheros for 4hrs no problems - highest temp 56 C.
@1480 FSB -mem auto - CPUMARK crashes/os reboot within 5min
@1475 FSB -mem auto - CPUMARK crashes/os reboot within 5min
@1470 FSB - Stable - CPUMARK06 results score 11176 CPU-Z rates FSB 1466.7
I have a Thermaltake PSU toughpower 750.
Any ideas to get better performance under air?
You shouldnt really need vcore to be that high at 1.53 ,drop it to around 1.43 to 1.48 max
I would raise the NB to around 1.5 for more stability at higher overclocks.
Try memory unlinked and tap in FSB of 1601 to see if this jumps over the FSB strap.
Failing that it may be that your chip simply is not a high overclocker.
You can always try and buy one from Tankguys etc who can get hold of higher rated weeks.
