Finally I'll bring my volts down as far as I can while testing stability. To me this makes more sense than working upward as I know for a fact I don't want to raise my volts anymore, so any FSB fiddling I do will get me my maximum OC for this set up and I can lower the volts as possible after that. Just need to get around to actually DOING this last bit.

good call. Working backwards like I am trying to will probably just waste time. I'll try 1.45 vcore and up my nb when I get home. I don't think it will need 1.5 to reach 3.6ghz..but I guess you never know.

Imo that's the way to fix the job. Maybe you should find out what your save (intel-specs) volt-ranges are and put them up. Then try to OC and get them lower while doing some stability-tests.

But when are you going to OC that baby of you :swearing:

what are you guys getting for a 3dmark score?

with the q6700, p5n32-e and a 9800gtx+ i've finally broke 14k. Once I OC this bad boy I hope to be sitting at 15k

The 7th HP DV6000 series notebook I've seen thats been just out of the warranty period has died today. I'm thinking this must be the worst notebook line I've ever seen...

Can't say if this was wise or not, but you're talking to the guy who built a homemade southbridge cooler out of a hack-sawed heatsink, a 30mm fan and a few woodscrews. To the tune of shaving 23c off the southbridge temp I might add.

My temperatures goal before starting was to not ever have things get past 65c (and the lower the better of course) so I think you'd be ok at 57c under load.

As it happens, I rarely run oc'd anyway as since I've found the "OC Profiles" section in my BIOS I've just saved my 3.3ghz overclock into slot 1. When I want to play a game, do some video editing or anything with 3dsmax I reboot into 3.3ghz. When I'm done and the system is just idling (or when the kids are on it), I reboot to the default stock settings of 2.4ghz. Again, unsure how wise this is but it strikes me that for most of the time the system will sit at stock settings, and only get pushed via the overclock when I actually need it. The rebooting is mildly annoying, but it's quick enough that it doesn't bother me much.

I may get to the point of leaving it at 3.3 all the time, or possibly look into the BIOS cpu throttling to have it automatically step things back on it's own when idling but for now I'm doing it this way.
Woah! You take the time to do this?! Very cool. Your PC is green! -In other words, you're conserving energy. I don't have the patience to do that. I leave mine running full out with maxed voltages sucking up the amps! Of course, I didn't have to use my heaters other than maybe a handful of times this past winter as the eight PCs(including the 2 TiVo) heat my 2 bedroom apartment quite well. haha

Your thermal paste requires a burn in period of as much as 200hrs. Leave the PC running initially to allow this to happen.

this day is taking way too long I just want to go home and overclock!

hey datter,

what you runnin' that thing at to get 3.4? 375-380*9? or 425*8? I think you may have mentioned it but I can't seem to find it on this thread.

412x8... which is 1650x8 in my BIOS because of the "quad pumped" number thing. That gets me 3.3. Going to 1700x8 would get me 3.4 but for some reason it's not stable, and as I won't raise my volts anymore I think I'm at my limit although I COULD try something x8 to get me to 3.6 or even 3.8 just to see. I might be at another FSB hole or something come to think about it.

Our bios is the same I just always divide by four out of habit..

I think you are right though. I messed with mine a little last night, got it to post at 1600fsb but 1700 was also a no go. It looks as though this board can make somewhere between 400-425 fsb and no more with the quads. Anyone else care to chime in?

Not bad though, thats still a little better than robilar stated in the guide (I think he said his best was 387fsb with a quad?)

Yeah, anything in the 3.3 range is pretty good though I am considering trying 8x whatever to get me to 3.6 or 3.8 just to see if this is another hole. I doubt it will work, but it wouldn't hurt to try.
