i checked with CPUZ and OCCT
Did you make sure to disable speedstep and thermal throttling on the "Extreme Tweaker" front page?

I'm currently running my sig system at stock speeds. I'm concerned my CPU and RAM speed could be holding back my HD 4870. Any suggestions?

Why would you run that CPU at stock speed?! The E6600 is arguably one of if not the best overclockers ever. You can hit 3.4GHz easy! I did with my old E6600 and that was on my 1st day of overclocking anything and with PC6400 memory too.

Your GPU isn't being held back. It's doing it's part regardless. However, you will definitely see improvements if you overclock or upgrade. So, yes and no.

I have a Q6600 G0 and I am looking to try to OC it to 3.2-3.4. What is the consensus on OC'ing with the new bios'. Which one is best? I remember 1503 showed some improvement and a few guys got in the mid 3's with it.

I'm sure you already know this, but just in case, here is a link to ASUS where you can view all the changes/fixes made in the history of each BIOS. In each drop down menu, select Motherboard, Socket 775 and then your motherboard. Then you will prompted to enter your OS:

http://support.asus.com/download/dow...Language=en-us

Generally, if you aren't having any issues with the BIOS you're using, it's recommended that you leave it be as with even the handy new tools we have available now for flashing the BIOS, there is always a danger of crashing it.

That risk isn't so great anymore, esp. with this board (excluding the Asus update method, never trusted it). I've gone back and forth between BIOS versions numerous times. However I do agree that if a BIOS version is working fine, that it's not absolutely necessary to update it.

So is there a consensus on best quad overclocking bios?
post #5379 of 5659
OK guys, I went and OC'ed today.

I set my ram timings, but I'm a little worried about the DIMM voltage (it's marked as 1.9v on the modules)

What did I do wrong?

Idle






Stress

2v isnt too bad. some motherboards go a little higher, a step or two higher. thats all yours did. knock it down a notch if your worried so much, but 2v shouldnt harm them
