Intel q6600 - FSB - some questions

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey, all members!

I've got some serious problems, and I hope you can solve them

I just bought those components for my new gaming-pc:

.) the intel q6600 himself
.) the asus mobo "P5E3 Deluxe"
.) DDR3-Ram: "patriot viper PC3-15000U" (with 1866 mhz)
.) Nvidia's "9800 GX"
.) + PSU: " corsair VX 550W ATX 2.2" & many fans

My problem is:
The FSB of the q6600 runs with about 266mhz, the FSB of the mobo with 400mhz and the FSB of the ddr3-ram with up to 1866mhz! I want to get best performance with each component? (cpu: max. 3,2 ghz; Same FSB-speed at all components)
Otherwise: What components do not fit together? What do you think?

please help me! I need my computer, but I don't want to run the risk of damaging my pc!!

Thank you for your help !! :

P5E3 Deluxe - 1600/1333MHz
Intel Q6600 - 1066MHz
Patriot Viper PC3-15000U - 1866MHz

It depends how you quantify each bus speed. The ram runs at ~933MHz, but because its DDR(Double data rate) it is doubled. My theory on PC building is if it fits together, then it should work.

A Mainboard has no specific "FSB".
This one only supports CPUs up to an FSB of 400MHz.
But it will run also Core 2 Duo or Quads with 266 or 333 MHz FSB!

On the Memory side it is supposed to support: "DDR3-800, DDR3-1066, DDR3-1333".


So no Problem with CPU or RAM ;o)....

many thanks for the fast replies!

@ MeSeidel

I know that DDR3-1333 is supported by this mobo. But my big problem is that the ddr3-memory I just bought are running with 1866mhz! So I don't know if those 2 components (ram & mobo) will fit together without any problems.

I don't want to decrease the speed to 1333mhz, but otherwise I'm not sure if my mobo will stand a bus speed of 500 mhz furthermore!!



p.s.: Will I loose my guarantee if I over clock my mobo?

But does "ddr3-1866" only mean that the interior memory speed among to about 1866mhz (~2x 944mhz), and the bus speed (mobo-ram) refers to only 1x 944 mhz?
> I'm totally confused

You are going to find that even the good x38/x48 motherboards will only push the FSB of the quad core to about 450 FSB and maybe a litle higher. So try to balance your system around that. And as others have said, your ram is running 933MHz (which is DDR3 1866). There should be no "MHz" after the DDR3 1866 rating.

Hey Roze, do you have all the parts yet?
If not I'll tell you what will most likely happen with the RAM question. The RAM module has some kind of electronic signature(or whatever it's called, I don't remember the right phrase) that will set your RAM most likely to either 1066 or 1333 or something similar. You'll have to manually set the RAM speed in your BIOS.
Before doing that I'd recommend finding a good overclock first before setting your RAM speed too high.

The Asus Website on this Mainboard says

Quote:
The motherboard supports DDR3 memory that features data transfer rates of 1800(O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066/800 MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest operation system, 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications. The dual-channel DDR3 architecture doubles the bandwidth of your system memory to boost system performance, eliminating bottlenecks with peak bandwidths of up to 17 GB/s. Furthermore, the supply voltage for the memory is reduced from 1.8 V for DDR2 to just 1.5 V for DDR3. This voltage reduction limits the power consumption and heat generation of DDR3 which makes it an ideal memory solution.
It will run DDR @ 1800 (2x900MHz) so it also should run it @ 1866 !
The point is that you may have to set the speed and timings over BIOS Setup.
On Intel Chipsets the Memory Speed is bind to the FSB over a divider.
I don't know what dividers this board has, so you ba not hit exact 1866.

Anyways the Board should boot - maybe with setting the RAM to 1333.
No risk in buying it...

You should attempt to reach ~400 FSB with your mobo and choose a RAM divider that runs your RAM closer to its rated speed...lower the cpu multi to ~7 or 8 and try to hit a stable 400FSB for starters. Once there, you can increase the vcore as you raise the multi back up.

* ~415*8 should be good for you.. your RAM will not be running full speed, but you will be able to lower the timings down a CAS level.. so no worries.

PM if you need more help.
