E6420 Overclocking Help - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Hmm. Just tried to hit 2.6 GHz and fried my CPU... Turns on for 3 seconds and back off, on and off, on and off.... Granted I was at 1.68-1.7 V to make things stable, but it never did get stable.... Would always crash.. I dont know how you all getting 3+ GHz...

)(killa)( <-----is screwed till the Q6600 gets here from newegg....

1.7..... that instability wasnt caused by CPU probably...
couldve been your ram, or NB volts.

Did you try more voltage (like +0.2) and very high timings?

@CPU
My E6420 also runs 3200 only with >=1.40 V + Nortbridge OV + Ram OV
FSB320 and 333 is possible with all at standart voltage.

Most E6400s and E6420s have some kind of barrier between FSB 333 and FSB 400 .
Overclocking higher than FSB 333 seems to be a bit of luck when buying the processor.
Some need 1.5 Volt to reach 3200 MHz others run 3500 MHz with 1.5 Volt...
