OC Help e6600

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm pretty new to overclocking. I've read up extensively on my particular board's overclocking options, as well as the capabilities of the e6600.

My problem lies within the vcore I believe. I was basically aiming for 3.5-.6Ghz, or better yet, 3.4Ghz fully stable. Currently I'm running 3.0Ghz, 333FSB x 9, with Vcore of 1.42v.

I've tried many different measures as far as changing multiplier down a bit, and increasing FSB, and that worked a little bit, but nothing seems to be giving me stable results for higher clock speeds. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

well, what are your idle and load temperatures at 3.0? are you sure you need that much voltage to be stable at 3.0? many processors can be a little unstable at non-native multipliers, so i would try using the regular multi to start.

My E6600 needs 1.42v @ 3.4 to be stable. I have tried all I can think of also to go beyond that (I have a l632b chip) and It will not go!

My temps are 30c idle and 36c under load on water

I seem to be fine at 1.42

Well, I messed around some more and on one of the guides I was looking at it, had said to try to put PCIE freq. to 110, and I had that on for a while. That was the cause of the instability. I turned it back to auto and I'm back up to roughly 3.50 Ghz @ 8 multi.

I'd suggest going back to a 9x multi ,you're pushing over a 1600fsb so you may get 3.6
