E6600 OC Problems - Page 2

post #11 of 26
You can leave the FSB vCore set to AUTO up to about 333FSB, which is 3.0Ghz on the x9 multiplier of the E6600. Your symptoms sound as if you're RAM is either running too fast, too tight, or simply isn't getting enough voltage. Be sure that you compensate for any vDroop if your motherboard suffers from it. Another symptom could be that your motherboard suffers from vDroop to the CPU vCore aswell which may be happening here since you have already set a low vCore manually, which is why I suggest leaveing it at AUTO.

so would you recommend me upping the volts to my ram to around 2.2 and try to leave the timings at stock? again, system seems to be running stable at 2.94ghz at 1.25volts for close to two hours. Temp at load is still between 38-41.

try to up the vcore to get it stable before messing with ram timings. just out of curiosity what week is your 6600?

If you look on the side of the box your processor came in with the bar codes, it should be towards the bottom/center of the label, to the right of "FPO/BATCH #:" Mine is L647G431.

Your motherboard, I believe, is similar to mine. When it comes to overclocking, I would set the multi down to 8x for now, and try bringing up the FSB to 400 (or 1600 - probably what it shows in your BIOS, being 400x4, because Intel runs at a Quad Data Rate or QDR) slowly, maybe start at 370 (or 1480) - which is 2960MHz (around what you're at right now), with VCORE at or around 1.35. Increase the total FSB by 20-30 or so until you hit 1600 (which will then be 400x8 for your mobos FSB), which is 3200MHz .... and test for stability with OCCT or Orthos each time. Your motherboard should be able to handle 400FSB (1600FSB total) no problem, and 3.2GHz isn't unreasonable for the e6600 (it's what I'm currently running at). And your RAM should handle that at 1:1 no problem either - on my motherboard it's called "sync mode". If you are unstable, up the Vcore a little... but make sure it doesn't go past 1.55 or temps don't go over 60C at load.

I hope this makes sense... sorry if it's a little jumbled.

thanks everyone for all your advice. Choggs, I will try that out in a few minutes. As a thumb rule, how long should you usually run ORTHOS for before determining that you can up it a little more? 5 minutes? 15 minutes? Thanks again!

My FPO/BATCH is L642G055.

Your BIOS interface could be different then mine, so you may have to translate some of what I said to work with yours. I hope what I said makes sense...

And run OCCT for at least 30 Minutes (the auto test), or Orthos for at least an hour each time you up your Overclock.... then when you get to a good overclock that you're happy with, run Orthos again for at least 6 hours to make sure it's super-stable. It might take a long time, but you're going to want to do this to be sure your CPU/RAM is running nice and stable. Make sure to keep an eye on your temps... don't let it go over 60C

I have to go watch some 4th of July Fireworks at the moment... but I'll be back in an hour or two.

Okay, I set it at multiplier 8 and FSB 1480. When I boot up, I get "Warning! Now SYstem is in safe more. Please reset CPU or Memory Frequency in the CMOS Setup".

EDIT: Okay, so I found the "sync mode" and it posted.. I'm running ORTHOS right now. It's only been about 3 minutes with temp at 41 or so. Idle is roughly around 27.

Wow that seems like a great temp... You got some AC pointed at that sucker or somethin? lol If those temps are real on air, that's sweet.

What are you checking your temps with?

Yes, it is on air. I've got an Antec 900 case which has 4 fans in it and a Zalman 9700.

I'm using CoreTemp right now.
