e6600 help!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
ok, im relatively new to OCing.

As mentioned, I set my ram to 533 to match the 1:1 ratio, despite having PC2-6400 (400 MHz)

My system currently boots without any problems to 3.2ghz, however my CPU-Z flickers between X 6.0 (2.318Ghz) and 9.0 (3.2Gzhz)... No idea... idle temps at 32 & 33

CPU-Z shows 1.238 voltage

Even with TAT running both cores @ 100%, I only get 51-52 degrees. Any ideas? Any help is much appreciated.

Turn off the C1E or whatever in your bios.

This setting lowers your CPU multiplier while your CPU is not in heavy use, which can affect overclocks and cause what you're seeing.

There's a setting most will say to disable, I can't remember the name, but it will lower your multiplier and fsb if your CPU reaches a certain temp. I usually set mine to like 70C and it doesn't bother me, but it saved my chip once when I was testing 3.6ghz, fell asleep, and then the temp in my room went up to around 90F. . . .

ok, looks good so far. Disabled C1E using RMClock & Speedstep/EIST in BIOS. Although Crystal CPUID still hasn't grayed out Speedstep/EIST, my system has stopped fluctuating.

voltages being shown for vcore:
CPU-Z~ Voltage 1.238v
Hardware Monitor~ 1.34
Coretemp .095~ VID 1.35
Rightmark CPU~ 1.35

So, I guess I'm still easily within safe measures.

Can anyone tell me what these BIOS terms mean and what to set it to?

CPU Voltage Override: (@1.4)
Front side bus voltage Override: (@1.325)
MCH/ICH Voltage Override: (@1.525)

Cheers & Thanks for your help!!!

Basically, overriding the default value for your system's voltages.

CPU Voltage Override - This allows you to manually set CPU vCore.
Front Side Bus Voltage Override - This allows you to set the voltage running through the main Bus.
MCH/ICH Voltage Override - This allows you to set the voltage running through the NorthBridge and SouthBridge.
