Dude, your gains would be huge with a new VGA opposed to a quadcore CPU.
I planed on getting the GTX285 the whole time, but then i saw the Q9650 and it got me thinking
But i will go with plan "A"
And maybe some better Ram

ok, a good update this time.

I lowered my multi from 9x to 8x and tried an FSB of 1700 to give me 3.4ghz. RAM is still at 857mhz, and timings set to 5-5-5-18. I booted into Windows ok to my amazement and thought all was well. I almost crapped myself when I saw XP reporting the CPU at 3.8ghz though but all the other apps correctly showed it at 3.4ghz.

Volts to get here as follows:

vcore : 1.5v in BIOS (1.46v reported in HWmonitor)
mem : 2.1v (factory spec)
1.2v HTT : 1.3v
NB : 1.5v
SB : 1.5v
CPU VTT : 1.55v

CPU temps at idle were in the mid 30's on average, and NB/SB temps were 70c and 65c respectively. My problem came when trying it under load. As SOON as I initiated Prime95 the system froze.

I then backed the FSB down to 1650 with the same voltages and things seem more stable. Right now with 1650 8x I'm at 3.3ghz. Temps at idle are about still mid 30's, NB and SB are 72/67. Under load my CPU temps go up to around 50c or so.

I wanted 3.4 and I have 3.3 (will stability test tonight) so I'm ok here. I figure I'll try dropping my NB or SB volts a bit and see how low I can get them before things start freezing up on me. I assume running the voltages listed above for any length of time is a bad thing? Temps aren't too bad though I suppose... CPU anyway. NB/SB I think are high. Are they?

Congrats m8. Thinks are working out for you know! Happy to hear..

But what if you put your multifier @ 9, is that working also? And try putting your NB at 1.4V, that should work. Other voltages are just good. I don't think the voltages are bad, mine are just the same. Except for the NB, mine is 1.4V. Maybe somebody can feedback use about that, would love to know that too. All that time of hard work are now paying you back, doing one thing at the time lol

Yes, I have to thank you for your post above, I really was about to give up. When I read that I thought I'd best get focused on the main OC here and exhaust all my possibilities.

What I'm thinking at this point, is that I have an FSB "hole" so 9x whatever it was to get me to 3.4 wasn't happening on my mobo but by going to 8x a higher FSB pushed my numbers out beyond the hole. I've read about this happening to others, apparently it's not that uncommon. I've tried combinations of FSB and 9x multi of all sorts and didn't get anywhere including trying to go to 3.4, 3.6 and even 3.8. It's odd because my FSB at 1650 x8 takes me to 3.3, yet 1700 x9 would have taken me to 3.8 but that wouldn't pass post last time I tried it. I may give it another shot though (170 9x) just to verify though as there are so many numbers in my head I may be remembering incorrectly.

Still, 1700 x8 wasn't stable as said above. As soon as I ran Prime95 it froze and wasn't stable in Windows either... freezing from time to time. Maybe that is a function of memory settings?

What I think I'll do next is try 1700 x9 just to verify no POST, then revert back to 1650 x8 for 3.3ghz. From there I'll lower my NB down to 1.4 and see if it likes that, and maybe see if I can get my vcore down slightly and remain stable. Given that it drops to 1.46 in Windows though, I doubt the vcore can move much from where it is.

After all that I'll finally move to seeing if I can get my memory to run at anything above 857mhz, THEN wind it up by looking at bumping my dual 8800GT's up a bit then call it done.

You guys still hanging out around this thread? My P5N32-E is on the return..this guy at work gave me a q6700 he pulled from a watercooled system that failed. I rma'ed it to Intel, and got back a shiny new one I've since installed it and stressed it to let the AS5 cure a bit.

Now I know the quads don't overclock well with this thing. In fact I tried to push 3 last night and I got a black screen, had to reset cmos. I was running 1205, then 1503, and now 1701, although I actually didn't mind 1503 when I was running my e6750 @ 3.4.

What settings have you found that work with q6600? Anyone have a q6700?

stock q6700 voltages according to hardware monitor in bios:
1.28 - vcore
1.88 - mem
1.24 - 1.2ht
1.24 - nb
1.52 - sb
1.24 - vtt

thing has a better vcore than my e6570, I want to take advantage of it!

My settings with my Q6600 are:

System clock:
100 / 100 / 100 / auto

FSB & Memory config:
unlinked / 1440 / 800 <- 1440 == 3,24Ghz

About voltage:
Vcore 1,35000
Memory 1,900 <- due to lack of time still have to OC it
1.2V HT 1,30
NB 1,40
SB 1,50
CPU VTT 1,55
DDRII auto / auto / auto

nvidia GPU ex = enabled <- don't know if that's good lol

Temps:
CPU 32
M/B 31

Hopes this helps you out

Thanks for the quick responses!

You guys think 56C is too high for stock? Should I try to reseat my heatsink? I can't wait to try out your settings when I get home. I know that the board won't post @ 1200FSB 1200/4 = 300 * 10multi = 3.00GHz thats what I tried last night.

So I figure Ill try 1400 - 1500 * 9multi = somewhere around 3.2 hopefully.

I wouldn't except it! But maybe I can't judge, 'cause of my HAF 932 case and 'just' a 8800gtx eXTreme. But for now my CPU is idle (almost, just internet) 32 decrease. Stressed it will be around 40 decrease. And that with the same cooler as yours. So yes, reseat it with some good pasta. And imo you should let the air out at the rear, rarely enough I see a lot of pics around here with the cooler point up, which means that all the warm air from your gr. card goes up without enough air to such from.

But that's why I like bigtowers a lot. There is so much place in it, and for the HAF 932 it comes with some very big fans in front, top, sidepanel and rear. For airflow you should try to get some underpresure, simply that means more air in than out. Another positive thing about it is that it will keep dust out, as far as possible. At the other way, with the same case and cooler don't expect much from it and it's not a big deal I guess

But maybe some other guys can tell more about air and temps. I'm just a amateur doing my thing lol
