Overclocking E6600

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just bought a motherboard, E6600, and some water cooling. I have it all setup and it works great, but my motherboard dosent seem to have anywhere in the bios to change the multiplier. I have an MSI P6N 650i motherboard, and I love it except for this. It said in the mobo specs it is capable of fsb speeds of 800/1066/1333. I overclocked it to 1333 but I am afraid to overclock more with the fsb because the motherboard dosent support it. Is it ok to overclock more with the fsb since I see nothing to change the multiplier. Heat shouldnt be an issue, its running at 30*C idle right now OC'ed from 1066 to 1333.
BTW I am new to overclocking so dont flame me :-p

the point of overclocking is to take things beyond the supportes specs.
just increase the FSB step by step (10-20Mhz increments) and test the new speed every time with 15-30 minutes of orthos/OCCT.
if you reached the OC you wanted, or a LOAD temp of 60C, test stability with mentioned programs for 6 hours. that's generally enough. some people, however, like to be compeltely sure and test for 12-24 hours.

Ok, that didnt help much but maybe my specs will make this different. Here is the link to my motherboard:
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813130081

I have the fsb overclocked in the bios from an original 1066 to 1333. Can I overclock this more, or will the motherboard not support any higher fsb than 1333.
