overclocking a q6600, getting an error in Prime95

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So I have decided to start overclocking my frickin processor. I want it at 3.0ghz, stable. Currently, it's at 2.7 stable.

Vcore is 1.8v. (i think....), and it's running on 302x9. What do I need to change, gradually, to get it to 3.0? I am scared to up the vcore... i took it to 310x9 @ 2.2v and it errored out in Prime95 in less than 20 seconds.


What should I do?

First double check the vcore. at 1.8v your CPU would be toast. run CPU-Z and tell us your vcore.


Set vcore to 1.35v, FSB to 333, and ram to 800.
I bet your ram (or Vdimm) is 1.8v and you upped it to 2.2v.

Your vcore shouldnt be that high I hope thats your vdimm your talking about. The vcore should be around 1.3 to 1.45 or so depending on your cooling.

Ram I would put at 2.1 or 2.0 for now.

I got 3.0 easy on stock volts, I would play with your ram. All i did was lock mine to stock timings and get the volts right going to them. Use the latest orthos it will test all four cores.

WHOOPS, my bad

CPU voltage is 1.16.

Any suggestions on changing my RAM timings? I'm totally new to the whole OC scene as well, so naturally I'm a little nervous.

Just go to the gskill website and see what they recommend for timings and lock them at that. Or find your ram on newegg/read the package they came in and see what the timing and volts are supposed to be. Usually the bios will unervolt you ram at first.

You might need to up the CPU voltage in the BIOS.

1.25 gave me stable @ 3.0ghz. Your mileage may vary.

depends on your G.Skills, are they HZ's? HK's, results will vary, HZ's can run very fast, HK's can run a bit better timings.

In my case w a Q6600 Go Stepping SLACR, 3.0 was reached simply by increase FSB to 1333. At that time I had also set timings and voltage to my Kingston 8500 SLI memory to Kingston spec for 1066 runs. I am using an EVGA 780i MB. 3.0 was really very easy. It's been getting beyond that to FSB 1500 that is a real task.

I have my vcore at 1.29. You can use this to give you a ball park of where you should be.
