Help OCing q6600

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i need a little help OC'ing my Q6600
It's currently at 3.6 Ghz, 1.4875V Under Switch tech h20 220 Compact cooling (I KNOW ITS HORRIBLE, but microcenter didnt had the stuff i needed or a set with decent components)

It's just temporarly, i want to OC it to 3.8Ghz+ at most 3.93ghz

Anyone know what voltage would i need? for CPU and FSB, also for rams


MOBO @ Linked/Synced mode [ram is 800MHz stock, @ currently at 4-4-4-8 1T, @ 2.125 V

I think the rams are the one keeping me from ocing to it's max

I tried 3.7 Ghz, but it didnt boot, "it was at 1.5V, 1.4FSB, rams unlinked.

Make sure your SPP is set to 1.5V. FSB might have to bump from 1.4V to 1.5V, but try that SPP first. That held me back. Maybe bump the RAM to 2.15, but probably not your issue. Keep it unlinked at manufacturer timings, voltage, and clock til you nail the CPU.

I'll try that, 1.5v FSB seems dangerous and risky, especially right now, it's almost summer here

Alright uh, i tried 3.65 Ghz under 1.51V, 1.5v FSB, and my rams were unlinked, default speed and voltage, but the comptuer still won't boot,
Also i was checking thru bios to see if everythings turned off, and i came across HT spectrum, think that'll harm my OC?

It spreads the voltage across the enabled spectrum components, make sure they are off. Also disable C1E halt state and virtualization tecknology theres a great guide here in the mobo section.

Have you pencil modded that board yet?

Bump your GTLref lanes up to +15mv, its probably the vdroop that keeping you getting stable any higher. If you havent done so already change over the mobo cooling to AS5 in place of the toohpaste they put on at the factory, and ziptie a 25 x 60mm stealth fan directly onto the NB heatsink, theres a great guilde to pencil modding the board, took me 1 try and my droop is .03 volts under load now.
