Abit IP35-E and Q6600

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hi members of overclock.net, I'm relatively new to this site and I just bought my first custom rig.

My friends are telling me to OC my q6600 to 3.0ghz and my Crucial Ballistix 2gb to 4-4-4-12(?) @ 2.2v

The problem is, I don't really know how to do all the bios stuff.

Should I update/flash my bios?

Can someone please give me a stepbystep instructional guide to OC my q6600 to 3.0ghz and ram to 4-4-4-12 @ 2.2v please, my rig is in my profile.

Thanks everyone in advance.

I think your friends are telling you to do stuff without the true knowledge about what you should do before OC'ing your computer. Take a look at some of the steps in signature, for new members. I would never suggest any overclocking before I was sure you have adequate temperatures.

4-4-4-12 is the timing set for the memory. I think your RAM is rated @ 2.1 volts.


Welcome by the way.

Here is a tutorial of the Abit IP35-E bios settings: Dev's Hardware

You are going to have to set your FSB to 333MHz, your CPU vcore to 1.30v, and you memory to 2.2v since they are crucial Ballistix. Then change the following memory timings:

CAS (tCL): 4
RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 4
RAS Precharge (tRP): 4
Cycle Time (tRAS): 12
Command Rate: 2T

Just be aware that you have to stress test the overclock with Prime95 for 8 hrs and make sure the temps, while running this test, stay under 68°C. Also grab CPU-Z to verify CPU and RAM speeds. These programs are located in the downloads section.

Note you might need less then 1.30v vcore. So if it is stable, try lowering the vcore a notch or 2 and see if it is still stable.

I wouldnt flash the bios if everything is working. The new bios was released to support the E8400. So you can flash it before you swap to that CPU. I only say this because a bad bios flash can render the board useless. Only really flash if you need to.

That being said, I keep my bios as current as possible. But I know the risk involved in doing so.

What if it's a working BIOS that everyone says works? Thanks again for your help, it is much appreciated!

As long as you understand the risks, and know your board is stable, then go for it. Just make sure to load bios defauts and then make sure your ram has the proper voltage (you dont want it to crash during the flash) before flashing. If you flash with overclocked settings, expect unexpected results!
