System Specs:

MOBO
GIGABYTE GA-965P-DS3

GFX
EVGA 640-P2-N821-AR GeForce 8800GTS 640MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16

GFX Fan
ZEROtherm GX815 Gamer Edition 2 Ball VGA Cooler(sucked to install and takes up an extra slot)

CPU
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz

CPU Heatsink
ZALMAN CNPS9500 LED 92mm 2 Ball Cooling Fan with Heatsink

CASE
XCLIO Windtunnel Fully Black Finish 1.0 mm SECC Chassis ATX Full Tower Computer Case


Case Fans
QTY 3 Thermaltake A2018 120mm Blue LED Case Fan

Power Supply
OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI ATX12V 700W

Memory
G.SKILL 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400


Currently OC'd to 2.8 mhz

Idle with WMP playing
*Core Temp shows my freq at 3.6 which it is not so just ignore.


Anyhow major settings are:
CPU Clock Ratio: 7
CPU Host Freq: 400
PCI Express Freq: 102
System Memory Multiplier: 2.00
CPU VCore: 1.375

I ran Orthos under a blend stress test for 20 minutes and my highest CPU Core Temp was 48c at idle as you can see above i run at 30c with windows media player playing some tunes. Anyhow, I am fairly conservative with my OC'n mainly because my wife would kick my butt if I killed this thing lol. I am looking to get it over 3.0 or around that area. I was curious what settings listed above should I change to get that effect. For instance I max setting to get around 3.0-3.2 and I will play with the settings to get to that point. I appreciate the help in advance!

CPU clock to stock (x9)
FSB 334
A slight bump in vCore over stock.

Thats all I do for my setup to get 3.0

I'd just go about 8X on the multiplier and set the FSB to 400 for a cool 3.2GHz and go from there. Put your vcore up 1.4v and then try to work it down to as low as it can go and still be stable...or you could try 1.35 and go up but that takes alot longer.

Or just keep playing with it...you are fine temp wise as long as you stay under 60°. I like to keep volts as low as they can go though. Over volting will do more damage then over heating. 1.4v is pretty safe though...and I've yet to see a e6600 that needed more that 1.4v to hit 3.2 GHz. I run mine at 3.2 with 1.375v. I can hit 3.6 if I go up to 1.45 or so...but that's too rich for my blood even thouch my temps are fine. I'll probrally run it like that eventually though it is still able to do it.

Ran it for 5 minutes and it ran lower than my 2.8. I averaged 48c with 2.8 on orthos and i averaged 46c with 3.2 how is that possible? My idle temp is even lower?

You might have your CPU fan set to auto adjust and some times it will increase the RPMs if the voltage is increased. Or it may sense that the CPU is trying to heat up faster so it has the RPMs increased becasue of that. What ever the cause...its probally some thing along those lines.

Nice chip there by the way. If it can do 3.2GHz at 1.375 I would try to 3.6 with it. I like to keep the 400 fsb so the memory isn't OC'ed. Lets you know that you're not having memory OC troubles.

I am at 3.4 right now. I ran orthos and the highest it got was 52c. I am going to drop it back down to 3.2 where i am comfortable and drop my voltage down to see how low it will run with 3.2 before it gets blah lol

Look no further. I can't even post with 1.5Vcore to get past my 3.1GHz. I wont go past 1.5 just because it is not worth it just to get to 3.2GHz.

hmm weird I have the e6600 and i hit 3.4 on 1.38vcore I am running 3.2 on 1.36vcore right now. I didnt like the 52c from the 3.4. For 3.4 I was using 9x multi with 380 FSB and now I am doing 1:1 with 8x multi and 400 FSB.
