Q6600 @ 3.2 max?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My sig is my current rig. I've tried to OC it to 3.6 but it will not post. Im not sure if its my ram or what? My temps load and under 50°c. Im still learning the 780i mobo, i dunno if its a setting I have wrong or what? It wont post 400 x 9 anyone have any ideas what it may be? I wanna get alot higher 3dmark06 score, currently Im scoring 16,914.

Update - I got my system OC @ 3.6 now with your guys help, Thx alot. Well I ran 3dMark06 to see how much it bumped up my score, and it was surprising alot more.

Post all of your settings for voltages along with your FSB, RAM speed and timings.

heres a good place to start - evga-780i-overclocking-guide

Also I would suggest letting those MEM timings up a bit, let them run at cas 5 til you get the cpu stable, your linked/synced and trying to OC MEM and CPU, hard to tell which isnt stable..

Once you get CPU stable, then adjust RAM...

PS: you have same VID as me... 1.45v for 3.2 and 1.48 for 3.4 ...... 3.6 @ 1.525 failed....

Pencil mod brought me down to 1.43 for 3.4

Voltages look Ok, but you can try setting your SPP (northbridge) to 1.45v.

Also set your ram to unlinked and set the ram manually to the manufacturer's specs. Worry about OCing it later.

Also check for a FSB Hole in the 400 MHz range. To do this, drop the CPU's multi to 8x and raise the QDR to 1600. If it doesnt want to boot, you are at an unstable range in the northbridge's strap.

If you look in my sig, I have a 680i thread. it has the same FSB Hole issue as the 780i, so check it out if you want to see what a FSB Hole is (its on the first page of the thread).

I have the same VID as you do (1.3125v). I set the Vcore in the BIOS at 1.375V, linked and synced at 8x400 for 3.2GHz and is Orthos stable (1.336V at load according to CPU-Z).

I can POST and get into Windows at 3.6GHz (linked and synced at 9x400) using 1.5V but cannot get Orthos stable.

I agree with the previous post. If you plan to run linked and synced, I think you will need to loosen the timing on the RAM.
