Help overclocking P5N-D q6600 2.4

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have been trying to overclock my cpu for ages now with no luck. I have tried lots of other peoples settings but no joy. I only really want to overclock to 2.8ghz to 3.0ghz.

any one got any suggetions on good stable settings for my rig?

I would think you really need aftermarket cooler for a quad. Get a xigmatech they are cheap and have won many bench tests that I have seen against the much more expensive rivals:

I also see you don't have your PSU in your system specs, it's also an important part of the equation.

Alright - Sup guys - Heres a lil help if your still stumped.

Overclocking
Stable at 3.4GHZ
vcore1.43 - might be like 1.4375 or something.
ram 2.11 - im using OCZ 800MHZ Ram - stock is 2.1Volts
ht 1.4
nb1.4
sb 1.52

Bios Settings
Everything Unsynced - 1510 FSB, 850MHZ Ram
Ram Timings - 4-4-4-12-2T (4-4-4-15-2T Stock)
CPU Configuration - Everything disabled, 9X Mutliplier

Under Hardware Monitor make sure you have all Q-Fan Settings on Disabled. Theres a lil fan that comes with your motherboard - DO NOT HOOK IT UP.

Installation:
Make sure you have The Latest Bios - 0402
Im running windows XP X64Bit, Installed Service Pack 2 X64, AntiWPA - , Latest 8.43 Nvidia Motherboard Software, Did not install anything off the original cd, - Did not install Media shield and did not install Nvidia Forceware Network Manager. Installed latest Beta Geforce X64 edition software - 174.74. Heres my rundown of microsoft .net framework as well as Microsoft Visual C++.
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Hotfix (KB928366)
Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1
Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 Service Pack 1
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (X64)

Also have all latest updates from Microsoft.

Nailed 15,756 3dMark06 Points with a Single EVGA 8800GTS 512MB G92 Overclocked to 776,1942,1077.

Hope this helps you guys out, This took me a longgg time.

don't pay attention to the microsoft framework and stuff up there...it has NO RELATION to overclocking AT ALL. his settings may be helpful, but by NO MEANS will they be exactly the same for you. If they are unstable, you need more voltage in one or more areas...if your rig is stable, chances are you could use LESS voltage.

haven't heard of that cooler before...my $20 dollar AF7 cools my processor to 58c at 3.4G in average ambients (~20c)

Yes but it does has an impact on performance in games, and some people may want to know how to hookup their stuff so its top of the line. Never said it did have something to do with overclocking.

and dude dont question my setup, its people like you that keep people searching for answers for hours.. disregard anything mcogon10 saids, thanks.

his question was about overclocking, not microsoft framework as it relates to games...

second, I would trust the person with 3k+ posts rather than the person with 15...

third, i was by no means trying to disregard your overclocking settings as erroneous, but just trying to tell him that your settings may not work for him as they did for you.

think before you post.

First off im not here to talk to dicks like you, im here to try to help people overclocking their computer. So go get laid and get a life. 2nd, My settings do work and I just ran a 3dmark06 score of 15,756 unlike the guy whos talken crap to me whos runnen at 13,077 points. And just because Im new doenst mean I dont know my crap, It ticks me off that people like you are giving people false voltage settings, So I decided to put some good in the community, jerk off.

Hi, I've read this thread. I must say JLewis187 is quite aggressive, but not wrong at all.

I'm new to overclocking and has the same hardware. I've looked on the net, everywhere, how to properly overclock my stuff, but couldn't find anything precise. Most threads were about general overclocking, methods as how to progressively increase each voltage, test, etc... Even in threads about my specific hardware people would still give general information - nothing useful. I tried searching for specific voltages and fsbs that actually worked for the same hardware, but failed to find any.

After a month of trial, I totally gave up. Couldn't get ANY stable clocks.

A few days ago, thought I might look up again, and then I saw JLewis187 on this website and another one. I was v.excited someone actually put up his complete setup, for that was exactly what i was looking for ^__^ I tried his and so far, its all good. If it remains stable for a few days, ill eventually try to decrease the voltages.

The thing to keep in mind is that us, newbies, need a start-off point at overclocking. I had no idea I had to change the different voltages nor how much to change the values by. I had no idea I had to disable all the CPU-features. But it's all thanks to JLewis187 I am now able to overclock properly.

I really appreciate this dude, so thanks, but you should take it easy next time XD

Cheers,
Ameel
