Overclock Q6600, 3.2 or 3.6ghz.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone! Got my new computer today. And i was wanting to clock it to atleast 3.2ghz rather safe then not . Was thinking 3.6 first but not sure if i can run it stable at that without boinking it. I was wondering if someone could help me quick with setting and the like. You guys are experts and since this is my first time and the computer cost me rather a lot as i'm a student and all . If someone is familiar with the motherboard and Q6600 setting for clocking it close where i want it, i would be SOOOO happy!

Thx a lot my computer specs are below!

Ultra-120 should be able to run that at 3.6 as long as you have two good fans on it.

Every computer is different there is no 'set' overclocking settings. You will need to experiement with that and read some overclocking guides.

These are the 3 needed tools for overclocking your CPU/RAM, minus your bios .
