E6600 Limit issues - Boots Once only - Page 2

post #11 of 17
I'm using a board from the same manufacturer, and the same chipset. The BIOS also looks very similar.

Sounds like a fsb hole possibly. I would try an 8 multiplier, or a different fsb, maybe a bit higher or a bit lower.

Very odd, after restoring the defaults it wont let me overclock AT ALL.

I tried an FSB of 270 and it won't boot. This is getting pretty frustrating, I'm using all the same settings I did before and much lower and the computer won't boot with anything other than default settings.

I guess I'll try physically resetting the bios, maybe that will help.

Anyone have a guess as to why my computer decidied to act this way?

Could I have damaged something?

When I use the factory defaults it runs fine so I don't think I fried anything...

Are you locking the pci-e clock to 100? Also, make sure the memory multiplier is at 2, or your ram will be overclocked too far.

Yes, I have been doing both of those things.

I put in the exact same settings as before and even lower fsb and its not booting.

I'm going to try leaving the computer off for a while to cool down, maybe thats the problem.

Maybe you just got one of those bad batches of 6600's that don't oc that well.
I would try to start all over and go slow. increase the fsb 5-10mhz at a time till windows doesn't boot then back down. run stable test using orthos. I have a 6600 and that thing hits 3.6 with only 1.42Vcore but all are different. don't get mad just take your time and listen to the people here on this site and they know a lot and almost always help figure out this issues. IF I can think of anything else I will post back...

So I physically reset the bios and let the computer cool down for a while and I am able to overclock again. Strange.

But this dual boot thing is driving me nuts, why would Vista boot but not XP?

I have a hunch though:

I have the two OSes installed on different harddrives:

Vista x64 - Raptor 74 GB 10,000 rpm (Sata II)

XP 32 - Samsung 250 GB (Sata I)


Maybe this could be causing a problem?

Should I just install XP on a new partition in the Vista drive?
If so, how do I transfer my registry entries so I don't have to install everything all over again?
