Overclocking Intel Quad 6700 - Page 2

post #11 of 35
Thread Starter 
With the TAT program to monitor temps it is at 3.8mhz and 53c.
Dont know if that is any good but that is what it is running.

Hey Overclock.net, new guy here, new to the forums obviously and kind of new to overclocking as well. I did a pretty good search for Q6700 related threads and have not seen any specific answers or guides yet for overclocking it. I've seen plenty of Q6600 guides and tips being a more cost effective chip but I was one of the few that seemed to have had a few extra bucks and felt a little bawlsy and went for the Q6700. If you would have bought the Q6600 or did thats great, but I didn't please don't turn this into you should have bought this or you should buy this instead. I'm looking for tips on what I have right now.

So far its been running fine but also with this new Rig I built I did want to look into overclocking. I had read some reviews and random threads of users overclocking to 3.6 - 3.8Ghz with stock fans no problem and maybe a little temp issue when running some things. So I figured I should be able to get to 3.0 or 3.2 no problem.

Here are the specs of my system using the CPU-Z Validator you guys seem to use for displaying scanned specs.

http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=379017



Keep in mind I also have this fan installed instead of the intel stock fan http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118003

The PSU I am running is this one if it helps to know as well
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139006


I took a good look at the Intel Overclocking Guide made in the this forum and it did add a little more to my understanding of overclocking than I have already gathered from trying to figure out what I need to watch for and do when overclocking my cpu. I know temperature is important and I am watching that I now realize I need to watch and control my Vcore a lot more so I don't kill my cpu and so that it stays stable.

Anyway when I first set up my PC and found everything was running as it should I did OC it to 3.0 Ghz for my first jump because I didn't think it was a big jump. It seemed to handle that fine without any temp change. I made this jump by just adjusting the bus speed to 300mhz.

Now my issue is I don't know what to do next because if I set my bus speed any higher my PC will not boot and simply hangs with a blank screen. I don't know if I should reduce my multiplier from 10x and raise the bus speed more or if I should be adjusting my V-core or doing something else. I mean I'd like to think the hardware I bought should be able to handle OCing to 3.6 no problem. I brought the cpu back down to stock speed because I think I was having problems even @ 3.0 because my PC was locking up at random points while playing games or even when just doing basic web browsing after a day or 2 of running at 3.0.

*Deep breath* Basically where should I start after all that. Whats the first jump I should make and what am I looking for in a lot of these stability monitoring programs.



On another note if you can see I have an Abit IP35 Pro board but I hate the clunky Abit Guru program that doesn't have much of an explanation with it. The only thing it has been good for is monitoring CPU temp and nothing else. But if anyone has any suggestions that involve using this program feel free to talk about it.

Any advice is appreciated thank you!

Raise the vcore up a little then run prime also what is your ram running at try to keep it around DDR 800 until you establish a stable overclock.

Download HWMonitor & OCCT (you've already got CPU-Z) - these 3 form the "triad" of OC programs. You can substitute Prime95 or Orthos for OCCT, but they take longer and I'm impatient :b
You can substitute HWMonitor with RealTemp as well if you like, but I prefer HWMonitor as it gives you voltage, temps, and fan speeds all in one screen

Edit: Do NOT use motherboard software for monitoring, and certainly not for overclocking! You'd think that a motherboard manufacturer would make software that reads from the sensors accurately, but you'd be wrong.

Before I do that do my temps look good @ stock speeds....after not relying on that clunky abit software and seeing some actual real time temps I feel like its running a little hot but I'm not sure. Atleast before I raise the Vcore and run it any hotter

If they are load temps, that's not so bad - leave it to run for an hour or so and then check them. If they're under 60C, you're golden
