Help the noob-E6600 OC

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello all. I just tried oc'in my E6600 for the first time and would like to know if I've done this right. I have a EVGA 680i MB. Here's a few settings in my bios that I changed.


CPU Thermal control - disabled
C1E Enhanced holt state - disabled
Intel Speedstep - disabled
CPU Spread Spectrum - disabled
HT Spread Spectrum - disabled
PCIe Spread Spectrum SPP - disabled
PCIe Spread Spectrum MCP - disabled
Sata Spread Spectrum - disabled
CPU Core: 1.45V
CPU FSB: 1.5V
nForce SPP: 1.50V

I've unlinked my memory from the fsb (sound right?) and increased my cpu speed from 1066 to 1308. Is this too much? My cpu is now running at 3 MGZ, right?Thx and any pointers would be appreciated. Sorry for the noobness of this thread.

so far so good. if you haven't already, download coretemp, prime95(or orthos), and cpuz. make sure to keep an eye on your temps with coretemp. use the prime95 for stability tests, and use cpuz to see what volts your running(also all the other info it offers). as long as your temps are alright, keep bumping up fsb until you get bsod, or it isnt stable, then bump up the vcore a notch or 2. then you can post back with your results and we can help you tweek them!

I had my E6600 running at 1.46v vcore and at 1640 QDR (410 FSB) at 3.7GHz with your other voltages the same as mine. So the board can go much higher, the question is, can the CPU?

I would think you could set vcore to 1.45v and try going to 1600 QDR (400 FSB) for a 3.6GHz OC if you have a good CPU. If you have a poor one, you will ony get to 1510 QDR (377 FSB). So start at the lower of the OCs, and push it from there in 20MHz increments.
