1st time OCer. got my e6600 up to 2.9 can i get ne more out of her!!!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So today was the day that i opened her up and let it run. i got the Bus speed up to 315MHz and a core speed of 2.898GHz to 2.988GHz while running super pi to the 8 mil character. the only problem is my temp is hitting 50 to 53 and i know that i dont want to get the teperature any higher. this is runnin on fans and i am wondering how much more can i possibly get out of the e6600 if i went to water cooling system.

any other advise on OCing and such would be great

What is your vcore or CPU Voltage? If it is set on Auto, You should manually set it at 1.27vcore. Leaving your vcore on Auto is not good, because of the temps and it makes it harder for Trail and Error.

If by any chances your computer do not turn back on. Do the follow:
Resetting CMOS: -
1. Locate a circular silver battery on your motherboard
2. Remove that battery
3. Let it sit there for one minute and more
4. Put back in the battery and boot back up.

What that does is that it clears your BIOS and put it back into factory default.

Set vcore to 1.28v (shows 1.26v with speedfan and CPUZ on my MB), then set FSB to 360 (1440 QDR). Thats all it takes to get your E6600 to 3.24GHz. I had mine running at that speed on only 1.22v so you might be able to go lower. You wont know until you check temps and run Orthos.

Good luck!
