Yet Another e6600 Question

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, just built the rig in my sig, and I love it. I am a big noob when it comes to oc'ing so I wanted to ask 2 questions before I did anything. Right now my e6600 is running at 3.0gHz on stock voltage (333x9, stock vcore, 25 idle, 39 load) RAM running 1:1 4-4-4-12-1T DDR2 667

1. I want 3.2gHz, and i was planning on using 356x9 multi, and I know I will have to up the cpu voltage, is 1.35 ok?
2. Will i have to touch any other voltages to get my 3.2?

Thanks in advance everyone

Just go to 3.4 my 6600 can. I can have it at 3.8 stable when I have the right ram

EDIT: Keep going higher until you computer doesnt boot then shut it off turn it back on and reOC it with your previous setting on down a little bit and see if its ok.

You may have to up the voltage to around 1.4 actually. It depends but don't be scared to go up that high as long as your temps stay ok.
The only other voltage you may need is to bump up the NB one or two notches.

you'll have to find out by trying. you cant expect a CPU to reach a certain clock with a certain voltage. this is different for every CPU. you will have to go up there slowly.
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.

I kinda figured I would have to do the trial and error thing, thanks so much for the info guys! reppage all around!

One more quick question, RAM timings. Should i loosen the RAM to 5-5-5-15-2T until I get the CPU to boot into windows, do some stress testing, then try tightening them a bit?
post #7 of 24
yeah. always loosen RAM untill youve reached your max OC, then tighten them as far as stabilty allows.

I would not up v-core until your computer doesn’t boot or has errors. My E6600 is at 3.4 with stock volts. Always remember to stress test for stability for 8 hours once you have reached your desired over clock. I test with orthos but other programs work also. I will keep an eye on your thread and try to offer assistance if more is needed. You can pm me if you need too.
