My settings are almost the same, except I have my load temp down to 59c. I am using a Tuniq though and I have an Antec 300 case with a bunch of slipstream fans. Yours looks pretty good, I would work on the cooling though.


You have 3 spots for 120mm fans on your case, if I am not mistaken. You may want to consider some of these:

That is, after you upgrade your CPU cooler. That would be my highest priority.




You could now start stepping the FSB up until it becomes unstable. With that voltage you should be able to go up.



Let me know how it goes in the morning.

Ive got 3 63 CFM Apevia fans in the case right now (front, back, side) and it usually stays under 30C ambient, according to my temp monitor.

As for CPU cooler, which is considered better, the Tuniq or the Xigmatek?

Ever since I bought my asus cooler, ive been hearing that the tuniq is considered one of the best coolers around (of course I didnt hear that before I bought the asus :\\)

Anyway, I'll try upping the fsb a little before i hit the sack and Ill see how it goes

If you looks at reviews, I think you will see that the Tuniq Tower 120 is usually pretty high on the list. It is also real good for the money.

The Xigmatek would probably not be quite as good, but it is also cheaper. If you can afford the Tuniq, I would get it. I have it and I love it. I have never seen a bad review for the Tuniq.


The Slipstream fans move 110cfm, so if you really want to move some air, and keep everything as cool as possible, you may want to try some of them. They can be found for about $8/apiece. The CPU cooler wont matter if you can't get air out of your case quickly.


If you do end up getting higher CFM fans (I really want to get my hands on some Delta fans, but they are hard to find), you will probably want to get a fan controller for them.

I have the Sunbeam Rheobus and I absolutely love it. It is only $14.99 on Newegg


Other than that, you are looking good. Try moving that FSB up until you can't get it stable under 1.5v and then tighten up the memory timings and you should be all set.



Good luck.

Well, It looks like Im topped out temperature wise at the moment. Running small fft It runs at 65-66C. When I run blend the temps vary between 56C and 66C.

This is with the case popped open and an extra 90mm fan jury-rigged on the case.

Current settings:
FSB 378
1.4250V

I ran small fft for 30 mins (at 65C) and then ran blend. According to the logs, the computer crashed after 2.5 hours on blend. So Im not really stable here.

Now if I understand things correctly, the high voltage is what is giving me the high temps. So if I want to get stable i need to back off the voltage and lower the fsb down to where I can handle these temps (at least until i solve the cooling problem).

I am not positive about your situation. I find that the reason for the crashes are usually because there isn't enough juice for the speeds you have set up. I am not sure if temp will crash you until you get into the 70s. Intel claims the Q6600 can go up to 71c so I don't see why 66c would make you crash. I am guessing that it is the voltage for this speed.


But you are right, adding voltage is going to make it hotter and you can't handle any more heat for right now.


You may want to just take it down to 370 on the FSB and then drop the voltage one step at a time to see how low you can go while keeping it stable.



Crashing on blend is odd, I should think that you can handle blend, but maybe it made it through the ram part and crashed on the CPU. I don't think your ram is an issue.



Once you get the comp stable at 370, you should start dropping the timings on your ram, one setting at a time, one step at a time.



For the ram, I suggest getting an .ISO image of MemTest86 and burning it to CD. Then, after you change a setting with your ram, boot into MemTest and let it run for 3 or 4 tests. If you don't get any errors, then you can lower another timing 1 step and try again.

Alright, now it is my turn for some assistance...



I have:

FSB : 372
CPU Multi : 9
Divider : 2
Timings : 3-4-3-10

My ram is at 744mhz right now with the above timings.

This gave me the highest speed in MemTest (4350 mb/s)




Does anyone think it would be better to drop my multiplier to 8, raise my FSB to 418 and loosen my timings?




What would give me best performance?




Thanks for your help.

For DDR2, faster RAM would probably be more beneficial than slower RAM with tighter timings. You'll have to check for this, but it's based off of what I remember.

A higher FSB will be faster than relying on high multipliers.

Hmmm. I thought maybe that was true.


I will run some benchmarks and see if I can notice a difference.



I am afraid that while my CPU is stable at about 3.35GHz, if I lower the multiplier, it may loose stability.



I think I higher clocked CPU would be better than higher clocked RAM.




What do you think?



Thanks for your help.

Thanks for your help.
You can always bump up the RAM multiplier. If you have good RAM, set 5-5-5-15 for timings and try to hit as close to 1066Mhz as you can at whatever OC your CPU is at.

You might not notice much of a performance increase for everyday tasks, but faster RAM and CPU will give you more performance.

Right now I am using OCZ Platinum Revision 2 PC2-6400 2x1GB



I know my Ballistix were only able to get to about 1040mhz...


Maybe these will hit 1066 if I loosen them up.



You don't think it would be best to stick to a 1:1 ratio?
