can't get a higher overclock stable .. assistance please

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
i have a E6600 (L707A) with 2GB g.skillz HZ ddr2-800mhz & an abit ab9 quadgt. i kno it's a newer week/code so perhaps it isn't that great of an overclocker, but i'm hoping to get 3.2GHz stable 24/7 on this.

so far, the only stable setup that i've found without messing any of the other voltages is:

cpu voltage: 1.40v
cpu htt: 350
multiplier: 8x
memory: 2.2v
strap: 1066
memory ratio: 1:1
memory timings: 5-5-5-15-2T

... it's pretty weak if you ask me but OCCT has been running for 7 hours straight on this and not a crash yet. load temps are at 43-44*C max on air.

with that said, i've tried 400x8 .. without altering anything except the cpu voltage, it's bootable (into windows) at 1.5v only .. at 1.49v it boots into windows, but restarts, at 1.45-1.48v it restarts when it's at the Windows XP Screen where that scroll bar goes across.

all these voltages are POSTable at least. load temps when on 1.5v were around 48-49*C, but OCCT fails after 4 seconds into it.

i'd try running orthos .. but i get a lot of paging when i do blend. am i suppose to be running 2 orthos? or just 1?

i would try messing with the other voltages like cpu vtt, mch, ich, ichio, but i don't exactly know what they do, but i am under the assumption that they will grant me a better overclock.

I know little to nothing about that board but I do believe you only need one instance of orthos for a dual core. I have been out of the loop the last week to week and a half, but I would imagine you can do much better for that vcore.

Have you attempted all the same settings at a 9x multi? I would imagine you have but you didn't state. That will put you right at 3150MHz which is a bit better.

i did and the computer is POSTable but does not boot into windows :sadface:

Tried 333*9? That will get you 3ghz, which is a minor improvement on what you've currently got.

Also this guy @ xtremesystems.org said this about the L707A

There are some of us with L707A e6600 chips. I have one. I'm at 3.013 GHz, 1.41 volts. I had to start upping voltage from stock to be stable at 2.8 GHz. I'm not going for big overclocks though, just a stable "daily driver".

Doesn't seem like such a great OC'er to be brutally honest.

i've noticed using abit uguru since nothing else tells me the correct voltage .. and i'm not even sure uguru does .. but my voltage is always .04 off of what it actually should be. does voltage really matter when ur temps are all right?
