Overclocking help

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I just achieved an overclock on my e6600 from 2.40GHz to 3.0GHz with 333*9, I've seen people go even further, but is it possible to have a rated FSB higher than what the motherboard actually supports? Because my motherboard supports up to 1333MHz FSB, can I run my CPU beyond that FSB?
Thanks.

As long as you are patient..and your cooling is up to par, you should be able to run 450+mhz FSB on that CPU/mobo combination...easy.

I'm currently at 3.2GHz, currently stable on stock voltage, but it's not going to last, idle temps 39-42c, I didn't test load yet, now I got to OC my RAM to restore a 1:1 divider.

How about 400mhz FSB, 9x multi? Can your RAM do 800mhz?
post #5 of 12
I have the same mobo and have actually taken my overclock to 3.57 but I didn't run orthos or prime. It did, however, make it thru 3dmark06 for a few runs. I just wanted to see what I could get out of it. Good solid board, imo.

edit: btw, I have a hole in my fsb at around 1685 to 1725. Push that board and let's find out what it can do for you.

Lol, I would but I don't really want my temps to be too high, CPU idles now at 43c, I'm still on stock voltage, 1.2 vCore, 1.2v FSB, but I feel like I'll have to put the FSB to 1.3v and the vCore to at least 1.25v, but I get one hell of a good CPU for overclocking, one of the best weeks so it might work on stock. Now I got a 1423MHz FSB, and 712MHz RAM, 1:1 ratio!!

all i did was pretty much just unlink the ram and then started pushing the fsb. I think i took voltage to 1.4 but my temps didn't get too high. I am still very much a n00b at overclocking so I really dont want to kill my cpu, lol.

As you approach 400mhz FSB, 1.3v FSB term voltage will be in order. Your NB will also need around 1.3v..1.4v when you start lowering the multi on your cpu.

*eveytime you lower your cpu multi, you will gain NB speed..this will require more voltage to your NB and make additional heat. Make sure you keep it cool!

Thanks, that was very helpful! I leave the NB voltage on auto anyways, I just force the CPU vCore and FSB to 1.2000v and 1.2v, because just by having a 1333MHz FSB, the auto would make my vCore jump to 1.4v for no reason, and the FSB to 1.4v aswell, even if I was dropping the multi to 7 which means that my clock frequency remained the same. I don't feel like wasting 12 hours running Prime95 today because today is my official last entire day in the U.S, leaving tomorrow afternoon for France for 2 months, so I'll just check if it's stable by playing games...

Using 'auto' is not a good idea, simply because it scales the voltage as the FSB increases...which is not always needed..and adds a lot of extra heat.

1.4vcore should be good for your cpu for a ~3.6ghz clock speed, BTW.
