Abit Quad GT Help Needed

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
OK Guys , Im having quite a bit of trouble overclocking my e6600 on my Quad GT


I know my FSB is stable( Tested up ot 475 stable , didnt think it neccesary to go higher)

I know my Memory is stable (Ran memtest all night @ 525 Mhz 4-4-4-5)

I just cant seem to get the CPU High

Heres my best result so far http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=204024
It wasnt stable though

Heres a Screenie of my temps / Voltages right now

first thing i would say is if you are trying to get your CPU clocked, first loosen up the timings on the ram and rake out the divider so its running in 1:1. The reason your system may be failing is due to ram, not the cpu. I know you said you ran memtest and everything, but who knows.

The first thing i was going to sugest is upping NB voltage, but after looking at your screenie, that is clearly not the problem. I can show you my setting on my Quad GT E6600 if you think that would help.

I would run the ram 1:1 for now, raise the multi to 9, and leave your voltages for the mobo as they are, maybe raise vtt to 1.4, this thing likes high voltages on the mobo, I use to run 1.55 to get 460fsb stable.

Get those two things changed and see what you can get your cpu up to.

Run the memory in 1:1, NB Strap = 1066, increase all voltage.

how much voltage can the rig take? if I run my FSB at 420+ the NB starts to get crazy hot. I wish there were better after market cooling for the NB on this board.

Ahh. I didn't think of that before. That is your problem. You are on the stock NB cooling.

Try something like this to cool the NB + VRM:

PWM Cooling

NB Cooling

Better prices can be found at stores like www.jab-tech.com and performance-pcs.com. (Both of which are great e-tailers)

The NB can seriously overheat on the stock cooling. That is the source of all your woes.

Pauldovi is right there, the stock cooler is a cheap aluminum copper colored piece that doesnt do very well.

It is definitely copper, I cut through mine. It is just to small to be any good.
