E6600 Oc

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I'm a complete n00b to OC'ing but after reading several thousand threads i feel confident enough to have a go, however i still have a few questions if you would be so kind

My system comprises of
Asus P5B Deluxe mobo
E6600 C2D (standard cooling)
4 GB Crucial DDR2 PC2-6400 800MHz RAM.

(please correct me where i go wrong)
if my CPU's FSB = 1066MHz (quad pumped) = 266MHz actual FSB
if my RAM's rated speed = 800MHz (double data rate) = 400MHz

so when ppl say set your ram to 1:1, does this mean try and up the actual FSB of the CPU to <= the RAM's bus speed i.e. 400MHz which would then give me a CPU speed of upto 400MHz * 9 (multiplier) = 3.6GHz

also i have seen ppl say that under load the CPU's temp shouldn't reach any higher than 55C - is this correct ?
also whats the max vcore i should goto with a standard intel fan ?
will another better fan make much difference or not ?

Thanks
Mufasa

Yes....that's correct.

Get a better fan though, the stock is good for 3Ghz. But with a stock cooler i would only go as high as 1.4v

Most Bios' will allow you to set the FSB and RAM speeds 1:1 no matter how fast your processor is. For example at stock speeds your CPU would have a 266MHz FSB and the (rated) RAM speed will be set to 266 x 2 or 533MHz.
As you overclock the RAM speeds will go up along with the CPU speed .

It does not have to reach 3.6GHz to be 1:1 with your RAM. Right now I am running my E6600 at 3.2 with the RAM set at something like 750MHz I think.

That is for stability.
Max vcore on stock? I would stick with no more than 1.35V

A better heatsink will make a world of difference. Try the Thermalright Ultra Extreme, Noctua NH-U12 or the Enzotech Ultra-X

Your FSB and ram equations are correct. A 1:1 devider means your ram is runing the same as your FSB ie. your FSB is 266 your ram speed is 533. This is usually used for O.C.'ing so when you up your FSB to 400 your ram will be running at the rated 800Mhz.

As for temps, 60 is too high and for voltage you can add whatever you need as long as your temps don't go too high. As you ad voltage your temps go up.

Regarding temps, the Core 2 Duo CAN go higher. The problem is knowing just exactly what the temps are on certain components of the CPU.

60C is a safe figure that allows for a margin of error in temperature reporting by the motherboard. Motherboards use very cheap sensors and could be off by 10C or even more. The motherboards might only be measuring the socket temperature rather than the CPU core temperature. So the rule of thumb is don't go over 60C as reported by the onboard sensors. STAY UNDER THAT NUMBER.

I would say no; any good ram will come with heatspreaders, and the HD cooler isn't really nessecary.
As for the exhaust blower, they do work for the smaller GFX cards that blow straight down, so depends on what GFX card you are getting?

The ram sinks and HDD coolers are not worth getting. If you plan on overclocking your ram a lot, look into http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835109137. They're fantastic ;]. Also, Hard Drive coolers are pointless in 99% of peoples' setups. The exhaust blower is nice (as stated above) for lowering graphic card temperatures if you have room for it.
