How can I hit 3.6 GHz on my E6600? (computer specs inside)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Here is my system:

ASUS P5B-Deluxe
E6600 CPU
G.SKILL HZ DDR2-800 2GB RAM (Rated 4-4-4-12)
8800 GTX

Here is my water-cooling setup:

DD TDX Waterblock
Black Ice Pro II Radiator
D5 Pump

I've currently running at 333 FSB with everything set to "Auto" in my BIOS.

If I understand correctly, my RAM will run at it's default timings up until 400 FSB. If I use my 9x multiplier @ 400 FSB that is 3.6 GHz and I think I'll be pretty happy with that. I'd bet the difference between 3.6 GHz and 3.8/4.0 is very little for most applications. (eg. 3D games)

So, if I want to hit 3.6 what will I need to do? It seems like the only thing I'll need is to increase the FSB to 400 MHz and adjustor the NB, FSB, and CPU voltages. Right?

I just don't know when to increase each voltage... (eg. how do I know to increase CPU voltage instead of NB or FSB voltage?)

Thanks for your help!

On my Abit Quad GT; to hit 3.6GHz, the only voltage I had to increase from stock is the vCore on the CPU. I left everything else alone. (Of course, my Patriot ram requires 2.2V)

So, this is what I have (week/stepping plays a role):

3.6GHz (400MHz FSB x 9) @ 1.4250V set in BIOS. Of course Abit's uGuru utility reports lower vCore at full load because of vdroop (which I would like to fix if anyone has an easy way). I was able to post and load windows at quite a bit lower vCore, but I wasn't completely stable until 1.4250V.

Each MB is different, and results vary. I would actually like to know more info on the benefits of increasing MCH voltage, etc... I'm trying to run stable at 4GHz,
http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...6600-4ghz.html
so I might have to increase those as well.

Good luck!!!

I'm at the same point as Sofakng, I can get to 3.6, just not so stable, and too high of a vcore, on the P5B-D it took me 1.58, but I went back to 3.25Ghz at 1.48.
Basically same setup. MB, CPU, Ram & timings.

Here are some BIOS shots for your reference:



Those are the settings that I run at 24/7. Nice and stable, and fairly cool for the performance gain.

P.S. After V-Droop the Vcore is 1.39

Sounds cool, I'll try those settings out and reply with info on how it went.

Tried out those settings, and cpu won't even boot. Seems I need at least 1.5(+) vcore for it to be happy. I got it to get to windows loading, then CPU shuts off. For me, there's a HUGE jump from 3.2Ghz to 3.5Ghz in vcore required. I can run 3.2 at about 1.48, but get this, at 3.5, I need 1.58 :O

I think I'll stick to 3.2Ghz

Okay, so if I set PCIE Freq. to Auto, it lets me boot (at 3.45ghz) with 1.48 vcore, Ram timings of 5-5-5-15-5. With all fans on high, CPU idle is 29°C so far.

Yet, if I set PCIE to 100 (as most guides, and everyone else says) my CPU won't boot.

Not sure if I understand why.

just set your windows clock ahead 3.6 hours?

lol

kidding. 400FSB is the best for 3.6ghz (don't know if you got there, or what, I am really lazy right now, so I'm just giving you a tip). It will keep you in the 1066 FSB strap, which is better than 401 (1333mhz strap). GL.
