You should be able to lower it in bios, but the max for the E6600 is 9.

The maximum multiplier on a C2D e6600 is 9. You cannot increase it higher than this. You can lower it, however, down to 6.

Edit: I am 100% positive, as I own this processor myself.

You have to raise the fsb in order to overclock. right now its at 266. you gotta up that to 366 or 400 or even 450.

Try setting the FSB....No wait. Read some of the faq's first. You seem to be missing some key knowledge. There are some rock solid faq's here you can trust.

dope, ever since intel started locking multipliers, you can never overclock by changing the multiplier.

Actually, quite a few people OC by dropping the multiplier and raising the FSB higher than they could if they kept the mult at it's default

ex
E6600 9x400 = 3.6
E6600 8x450 = 3.6
