overclock help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
what settings do you guys think I should use to OC my new PC?

-Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.4GHz 1066FSB 8MB L2
Cache 64-bit
-Raidmax Maxcool Intel CPU Cooling Fan (Extreme Silent at 20dBA & Overclock Proof)
-Asus P5N-E nForce 650i SLI Chipset LGA775 FSB1333 DDR2
Mainboard
-3GB (3x1GB) PC6400 DDR2/800 Memory
-CoolerMaster Unit 600 Watts eXtreme Power - SLI Supports
-NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT 512MB 16X PCI Expres s


I was told thatif I up the FSB from 1066 to 1333 I'll get 3.0 Ghz. Is this true? is that all I'll have to do? will my pcu cooling fan keep it cool enough?

Please every1 put in your 2 cents.

Thanks in advance!

That's may not be all you'll have to do actually. If you're starting from scratch you should read this post.

You may be able to hit 1333(3.0 333X9) without doing anything else, it all depends on your CPU, Your stepping( B3 or G0 you can find out which you have by downloading CPUz) and how good of a HSF (Heat Sink Fan) you have.
If you have a specific question after reading that post then ask.
Good luck and welcome to OCN.
