Overclocking C2D E6600 (noob) - Page 2

I use a 2:3 ratio (which gives me a 1000mhz RAM Frequency) but you should run a 1:1 RATIO or if you can, a 4:5 ratio, that will bring the RAM to DDR2 835.
I dont think that will work for his CAS5 667...I know they are Team..I checked the Team website, there information is limited. You might check for some reviews on the CAS5 series, and see if anyone has reached a good OC with them. Your on the right track so far though, your going to have to 'learn' your components a little better, but there is still lots of tuning to be done with your OC.

Well, the 1:1 ratio would definitely work fine but the 4:5 could also. I had my DDR2 (Corsair XMS2) 675 doing DDR2 900 with 4-4-4-12 timings and 2.20v.

Maybe that Team Elite is capable of handling that 900mzh. I'd try it. But definitely not the 2:3 ratio.

so heres the deal... messing up with ram timings: no good, changing CPU freq higher than 315, no good, so heres the values im using now, with 1.84 Ghz:

CPU freq - 315
Pci e freq - 100
CPU Vcore - 1,550
NB - 1,4
SB - 1,5
ICH - 1,057
DDR - 2,05

when the computer stars it makes a sound like something is accelarating, then it goes softer, like "the usual"...

btw, just this small jump from 2.4 to 2.84, it makes a huge difference in colin mcrae... normally i would use oblivion but, the game was running at maximum config without OC... this new colin game is the game that now is pushing my computer to the limits...

Dude..your vcore is way too high for 2.8ghz. You should only need around 1.34v for cpu vcore to run at 2.8ghz....NOT 1.55!

-and what do you mean you 'burned' your mem stick?

well the memory stick is useless... with it on the pc i get BSOD everytime i start the pc...

and with the cpu freq at 315, so i can get 2.8, vcore less than 1,550 isn´t enough... reset bios lol

Did you try changing the order of the RAM slots? Just change the around...sometimes when using 4 sticks, the mobo can be finicky.

Also, please post your PSU and the amperage specs from the sticker on the side of it for the 12v rails. Your voltage must be dipping too low. I have never heard of a 6600 that needs 1.55vcore to run anything short of 3.8ghz!

the ram is dead allright... did 4 memtest (hirens boot cd) in each memory slot... lol, no prob with that, im goig to change the stick next week, its still in warranty...

PSU must be the power supply? what it sais in the +12V is 17.0A and -12V is 0,8A. is this it?

only 17A..? Is there more than 1 - +12v rail? You had better hope so...if not you are endagering your rig.
post #20 of 26
17A*12v= 204W of output....thats not even enough to run my cpu!
