Novice needs big help 650i ultra...lots of info included...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok before i start ill clear a few points up. The parts i bought where recommended to me by someone who works in the pc industry. I have no idea but the parts i was going to buy he said would be out of date before too long. I just seem to get a feeling now ive bought the bits and installed them , that my motherboard is a system holdback.
Everything works ok but i know the rig should be working harder as everything is at stock right now. What im looking for is acknowlegement that the parts ive got are ok or, could be better and aid in overclocking. Ill included as much detail as possible. Any help is greatly appreciated.

PC is mainly used for gaming and photo edits.

System :
q6600 stepping b revision go
EVGA ultra 650i running bios 2.053.77(although cpu-z reports pheonix version 6.00pg)
windows xp home 32
2 x 1gb OCZ PC2-6400(400 mhz) platinum..code OCZ2P800R21G
BFG 8800GT 512
PSU OCZ gamer etxtreme 700w
Artic cooler pro7
X-fi fatality edition
Cooler master case with rear exhaust fan and 3 bottom case fans

And heres the bios info (2.053.77) im not sure if theres a better bios seems to be very vague. Maybe its just me

+vbatt 3.02v
Cpu fanspeed 2343
nforce fan 0 chassis fan 0

Now ive tried to do small overclocks here and there but am getting nowhere..BSD almost everytime.(i just dont know what im doing). I did have ntune installed that DID overclock the system and i pulled a score of 11991 3dmarks but after i read the horror stories of ntune i uninstalled it.

Can this board be overclocked? Wrong Bios? Wrong board? shall i just shove ntune back and and be done with it?
Im sure this rig can run faster than stock i just have no idea why i cant push it even mildly. Sorry for the long winded post but i wanted to give the pros as much info as i possibly could. Ill check back regularly to see if u guys need more info.

Thank you very much in advance and i will stop typing now..no really

Ok tried those settings and ,although the machine posted just fine when i ran cpu-z none of the settings had changed other than the vcore. All same as before. Is this bios related? ive deleted ntune from my system and done a reg scan etc to shift traces away.Any clues?

Yes saved and exited. The vcore speed has gone up so its saved somewhere. Also if i go back into the bios its reporting the settings i entered so its deffo saved yet not reporting in cpu-z that anything has changed.

Bump..am strugglin here pls help. If i change the memory timings they will stick and shows in cpu-z. If i change vcore that sticks and stays in cpu-z however any cpu or fsb changes just dont register. Im thinking that its a bios thats out of date problem and not recognising the chip. Which bios would u guys suggest i use if this is indeed the case. Sorry to keep hasslin

go to the evga website and see what newer bios's they offer for that board. that would be the first step. Also, try searching the forums here or googling your board and that cpu, it will help you see if other people have been able to do more. I have never used the EVGA, but my old p5n was based on the 650i chipset, and it had a terrible time working with my quad. Good luck to you.
