Is memory speed preventing 3.6ghz Q6600? - Page 2

post #11 of 47
People say to maintain a 1:1 during overclocking to rule our memory as a barrier. That being said, you don't have to keep it 1:1 after a successful overclock. In fact, 800MHz would be pretty silly as opposed to 1066MHz just to keep a 1:1 ratio.

This could be argued to an extent, but timings are similar. You always want your memory timings to be as low as they can go stable, but never sacrafice clock speed for tighter timings.

To quote somone from OCN "1066 @ 5-5-5-15 > 800 @ 4-4-4-12."

Alright that is good info to know.

I can get 3.6ghz @ 1.44V to boot into windows with memory at 800mhz 5-5-5-18 2.15V but it BSOD after about 35 seconds. What can I improve on? More voltage? looser timings?

What do you have the voltages set for your FSB? The quads like 1.4 when OC'ing that high. You should be able to set your RAM to 4-4-4-12 using 2.1 on the RAM @ 3.6 and what ever vcore that takes.

EDIT***I know that we have different boards but here are my system voltages

With my CPU set to 3.6ghz I can't boot into windows at all with the 4-4-4-12 timings. When I set it to 5-5-5-15 or 5-5-5-18 I can boot in but BSOD after 30 seconds.

I've now set my multiplier to x8 and FSB to 400 giving a 1:1 ratio @ 800mhz 2.1V RAM with 3.2GHZ CPU @ 1.352V

The Voltages I was using for 3.6 were 1.4FSB, 1.55 NB, 1.48 VCORE, 1.2 SB and I don't even know what CPU TLL is so that stayed on Auto.

But again, can't even get into windows with those ram timings @ 3.6.

If it truely is a mystery of balancing voltages or just inputing the magic number, then I have no clue where to start, lol.

EDIT: It must be, after looking at your system specs.

See if you can get to 3.6 with a 9x multi first, 8x puts a lot of extra strain on components you dont know the limit of yet. Try 400x9 and set your ram to run as slow as possible and then see if your quad will do 3.6 and what voltages it needs then you can start playing around to find the best combo

Roger that, reboot number 5-zillion underway.

Not totally certain what the slowest possible my ram will run it. But aside from that trying 5-5-5-15 and 5-5-5-18 it won't boot into windows anymore @ 3.6ghz. Been about 2 days of fruitless attempts. 3.2ghz (355x9) is seeming to sink in as the reality of this chip/ram set up.

Must say it's odd that it works up until 3.6ghz, where it becomes a whole other beast.
