New to OC'ing.Q6600?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey bros,i am new to overclocking u know.
And u guys helped me at my last ocing try at a Pent.3 pc.
I oced the pc from 500mhz to 667 mhz,but with a hard lock.
I had to get the BIOS battery on the mb to get the pc back to work.
So here it is;How to OC?

First,is a quad core @ 2.4ghz is only a very high-tech 2.4ghz,or a normal 2.4ghz x 4.

Second,i know pc language good,so u can tell me how to oc without getting too hard.

And for the last:How much can my pc get oc'ed with lasting 5 years?

My pc is totally 2 weeks old,so with stocks,it has 10 years to go.So any helps and giving my questions an answer is appreciated greatly

1) its one processor with 4 cores and each core is rated at 2.4ghz (266x9).
3) i would say you can probably get it to 3.2 ghz without upping the vcore too much. basically i would say as long as temps are low and vcore isnt past 1.45 or so, youre ok

you should be able to get 3.0 without making much changes. up the fsb to 333x9, and see if it posts. if it does post do a quick stress test with prime95. if it doesn't post, or you get errors with prime, bump up the vcore a notch or 2 and try again. if you do a mild o/c like 3.0 or 3.2 you should still be able to get 8 years (give or take) out of you cpu. its the big o/c's that require alot more volts, that shorten the lifespan of a cpu dramatically.
