OC e6600 (gigabyte ds4)

post #1 of 15

hallo i need soome guides how to overclock my cpu im not good at that so i need some help.

u can se my spec in sig. and lets start.

my proc workin on 3.15ghz 24/7 without any voltage incrised so its working on normal voltage (cpu 1.35v || memory at 1.82v) and other parts on normal voltages.

and today i did my 1st overclock over that speed actualu i overclocked it at 3.42ghz with max temp. around 50~ with voltage ~1.45 memory at 950mhz

and here is one prob. i dont know to manualy adjust voltages for any part on my motherboard (bios).. since im working like graphic designer and i working on same comp all most every day and i dont want to fu*k anything..

so since i dont know how to do it in manual mode i selected auto voltage mod so my motherboard(bios) have done by it self and set proper voltages for pc parts...

so i come up on some people saying that seting voltage to auto is not good at all ... so can somebody tell me what to set to make my cpu work on 3.4 or 3.6 without incrising voltage much and without geting high temp.

and another question. overcloking cpu (if i want over 3.15 i need to incrise voltage for all pc parts) is that badly for any part or my comp part... ?

thx for any help.

Setting the CPU voltage to Auto is not good, you are right. Your processor probably needs way less voltage than it is getting. To find the right voltage, experiment...start out with say 1.3-1.35. Orthos test (CPU not blend) and if it fails you most likely need to raise the voltage (stable is 8+ hours for me). The max is 1.5V for everyday use. If your CPU voltage is higher than stock...more than likely it will decrease its lifetime...the more the voltage the less the life. You could probably replace it before it goes out...a lifetime of a CPU is probably about 10 years...you may take a year or two off of it, but it still isn't a huge impact.

You need to overclock your CPU and your RAM seperately also...to eliminate any stability problems...you only want to change one "variable" when you overclock until it is stable. For now, but your RAM back to stock and make sure it says there as you overclock your CPU, either by unlinking it or putting a RAM divider.

ok i try like u said but since i dont know how what voltages to set for other parts for my pc i dint change anything a leve them at normal voltage...

System Voltage Control || Manual
DDR2 OverVoltage || Normal
PCI-E OverVoltage Control || Normal
FSB OverVoltage Control || Normal
(G)MCH OverVoltage Control || Normal (i dont have a single clue whats this ???)
CPU OverVoltage Control || 1.37500 (normal cpu vcore 1.35000)


but here is the prob.

i changed my fsb from 266 to 380 and multiplayer is set to 9 and my cpu working on 3.42 voltage is set to 1.375 so do i need to incrise voltage for other parts i think i dont need for DDR2 couse its working on 950mhz without any prob. without voltage incrised...

but my pc wont boot only showing black screan and when i try to go for 3.6ghz with 400x9 without incrising voltage for other parts i get "green screan" in bios without showing anything and when i reset my pc all back to normal so i think i need to go for higher voltages for FSB OverVoltage or all alltogheter

so plz if any body have same board and cpu or only know how to set all seting at best

thx

I don't know if you have read the intel O/C Guide but it's helpful. There is another one too, that has some more examples but I couldn't find it.

You probably need more voltage on the cpu, but if you really don't know what you are doing it's kind of hard to figure out by just punching in numbers. Also if 3.4 didn't work with 1.375v, 3.6ghz is not going to work. I can do a little over 3.0ghz @ 1.325 but after that I need more voltage. To get 3.4ghz i need about 1.5v in the bios, which is really around 1.44v. Its going to vary from system to system and i think it would be better if you took a different approach. Maybe go up in smaller steps from 3.1ghz and add voltage when ever it's not stable.

Some people on here have a lot of experience and can pretty much get close to what voltage they need for a certain speed. But then there are some of use, including myself that need to do things slower.

BTW, MCH is the North Bridge

ok but here is the prob. couse i tryed to put 1.42 vcore and 380x9 (3.42ghz) and still not working...but when i use Auto voltage mod i get vcore showin in cpuz 1.425 ~ to my manual 1.42 which i set ...

then it means that i need to incrise other voltages like for example. for FSB OverVoltage Control or what not...and that is the prob. i dont know huw much is safe couse witth that i can damage my motherboard,graohic card and what not

so i need from somebody who have same borad/cpu to tell me what seting they use to make e6600 to work 3.4 or more

That might not be necessarily true. Your voltage setting in the bios might be a higher number than it really is. When you set it at 1.42 in the bios what does it show in cpu-z? From what I have seen and read, the bios is usually higher than what it really is in cpu-z. For example, my board at 1.42v in the bios is really 1.36v in cpu-z.

Like I mentioned before, not every board that is the same model will use the same settings, and not every e6600 is the same. Mine might need more voltage than yours to run stable.

I'd suggest you move up in increments to get an idea of how much voltage increase you need every time you bump the FSB. It's hard to just punch in a number and get it to work. If it does work you might not be stable or either using too much voltage. I don't really know what speed your ram is, but to find a stable o/c I'd try to take the ram out of the picture. You said it was running at 950mhz when you were at 3.4ghz. Try setting the divider 1:1, might be 2.0 in the bios, thats what mine is.

If I were trying to be lazy and save some time I would start at 3.0ghz, since you say that you can run stable on stock voltage. I would run the memory 1:1 and use the manufacture recommended volts, and leave all other stock. Then just up the FSB by 20-50mhz at a time and when it fails to boot add more voltage till it boots. When it boots test stability for a little while then continue some more.

I'll give you might settings on a GA-P35 DS3L and the same processor. Keep in mind that we have different chipset and different ram.

This is at 378x9, and running the ram 1:1

Dont know how similar the DS4 bios are compared to the S3 but I needed 1.375 in bios for 350 which shows as 1.39 in windows, 1.40 in bios +.1 FSB & +.1 (G)MCH for 360 which reads 1.42 in windows.

also when MB Intelli Tweak is highlighted press "ctrl+F1" for hidden RAM features.

1.8 is default ram voltage, so add if you need it.

Currently testing 1.425 in bios for 370 which is 1.44 in windows

passed OCCT 2hrs and did a 16M Super PI

But now im running into game issues.....

less than 15min into any game and it shuts down, no error msg, no blue screen.. maybe PSU cant handle the power... 500W Apevia has been good, but maybe trying a new one tomorrow...

off to start a new thread for that tho..

Some chips need more voltage than others, mine for example is a really bad stepping, so I need 1.425v to hit 3300mhz on my e6600.


vMCH: 1.55 <~ your north bridge chipset(correct me if I'm wrong), this controls your memory and fsb. You shouldn't need to go over 1.45 on this.
vICH: 1.05 <~ your south bridge chipset(correct me if I'm wrong), this controls your video card, and your rear panel stuff, such as USB , sound card, etc. You shouldn't need to go over 1.3 on this most of the time.
PCI: 33 <~ you don't have to change this.
PCI Express: 100<~ you don't have to change this.

To overclock and be safe about it, start around 1.35v, increase your FSB by 5, boot into windows and run prime95 for 10 minutes, if it passes raise the FSB by another 5 and so on until you cannot pass 10 minutes of prime95. When the test cannot pass 10 minutes, raise your voltage and repeat. General rule is to not exceed 1.58v or 61c on your CPU. Once you feel you have gotten to a point where you feel comfortable with your overclock, run prime95 over night. If it cannot pass for 8 hours or more it is not stable, increase your voltage 1-2 notches depending on how long it took to fail and try again. Usually if my test fails within 1-2 hours I'll increase the voltage 3 notches. If at all possible try to run a divider while doing this, to keep your RAM as close to its rated speed as possible. You can overclock your RAM once you have the CPU where you want it.

ok i try some of ur advices and from 3.15ghz on normal vcore 1.35 (in bios) i overcloked it to 3.24ghz with 9x380 and radm working on 900mhz 5.5.4.15 but cpu:memory ratio is 4:5 how can i make it 1:1 or that is not that much important... and i set vcore to 1.368 in bios and cpuz and everest showing 1.344v max (couse in my bios is turned on option that my mother borad reduce vcore*speed when its not needed and is that good to be turned off or no)

and i added 0.5v for MCH and fsb... or i dint need to add more voltage for this...


i "tested" super pi 8mb and all was ok and then i runed prime95 and everest stres test in same time about 20-30min and all was ok too... max cpu tem vas 43 for a sec but most time was ~40

ok here is screan shoot

so can i keep going for more without incrising voltages for other parts except cpu
