Help Me overclock my q6600 on asus striker extreme

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,


Im new to the overclocking game and need help in overclocking my q6600 to around 3ghz or more ( if possible) with stock air cooling. Im using an asus striker extreme motherboard and 4gb of ocz platinum memory. Im looking for the most stable overclock possible based on these specs. I can navigate my way around the extreme tweaker settings and have set my memory timing correctly. I really need someone to post screen shots or a list of settings for this motherboard type showing exactly what to set voltages,fsb at etc for a stable overclock. Settings apart from memory are set on auto at the moment. Can someone please help

first of all, you cant expect to overclock a quadcore CPU on stock cooling.
get something like the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme or Thermaltake Big Typhoon, and a Silverstone FM121 fan. you'll need this, the Qcores get hot.
second, and for this i quote myself:

like, increase FSB 5-10MHz at a time (in the beginning you can take larger steps. like, 15-25), and when you're instable, try to figure out why. (RAM/PCI(e)-lock/Vcore/Vnb/etc) when you solve the instabilty, you continue untill you reached your max temps, or desired OC.
if you cant spend money on aftermarket cooling, you wont be able to OC far. though a Q6600 is quite powerful as it is anyway.

last thing, welcome to OCN

did he just say he's going to OC a QUADCORE with a stock cooler????

Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme + Silverstone FM121 OR GOOD watercooling would be best

Disable thermal throttling, Speedstem, virtualization and stuff like that.
make sure you UNLINK the memory and leave it at 800mhz(or whatever your stock is) for now and slowly increase the FSB. there's not much trick to it. when it gets too unstable, increase the voltage a bit (0.100V or so)

Max voltage: 1.5V
Max LOAD temp: 60 degrees C

Please dont go over those maxes and dont you dare try anything on that stock cooler.
