E6600 help pls - Page 2

post #11 of 12
The easiest overclock I did with my E6600 was to set the following:

1. FSB to 360 (1440 QDR)
2. Unlink FSB and Memory
3. RAM voltage to 1.95v
4. CPU Vcore to 1.3v

After saving and exiting, my E6600 ran at 3.24GHz 18hours stable with Orthos. (I was even able to lower my CPU vcore to 1.21v.


CPU voltage is important because you need to increase it to stabalize the CPU durring overclocking. Intel states the E6600 vcore range is from 1.18v to 1.35v. I would never go higher then 1.5v. But most important to note is that as the CPU vcore goes up, so does the temperature. Whenever you overclock, always monitor temps. I use coretemp to monitor. You never want the temps to go over 60°C when it is on full load. Monitoring temps while running orthos will help verify that. Lastly, when overclocking, never use the AI auto overclock. Always do it manually!

Also keep in mind that just because one person can get 3.4GHz with their CPU, you might not get above 3.0GHz, or you could go 3.7GHz. Basically no to CPUs are alike. There are batches from which a group of chips are cut from the same waffer and they tend to OC about the same in general. But there are never any guarantees!
