Asus P5B Deluxe OC Settings Question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok, so i have been running my system OC'ed now for almost a year now with no problems, Although i wonder if my current setup is the best way to OC. This is how i have my BIOS set right now:

- Proc: Q6600 OC'ed to 3.2 Gig With 355 FSB
- DDR2 800 set to 4-4-4-12 timings / Auto Voltage, had to set too DDR2 667Mhz in order to get a 1:1 Ration at stock CPU Speeds, now its up too 710Mhz with the CPU OC'ed too 3.2 gig
- Multiplyer x9
- All Voltages are stock, i know RAM should be set to 2.1 at 800MHZ but im not even hitting that yet so i have it on Auto, which yeilds 1.8v
- Most recent BIOS was just updated
- PCI Frequency is set to 100
- PCI Clock Sync is 33.33MHZ
- Speed Spectrum is disabled


I guess my question here is, is should i have to downlock the RAM to go to a 1:1 ratio, it is what i find stable so far. I always see people Over clocking RAM to 1066MHZ or so. What is the correct way to set this up. i know i dont have much info. here, but has anyone else seen similar setup's? Also, should i be clocking higher in oder to go around the Strap. I beleive it kicks in at 400 or 401 FSB.

People will first tell you to fill out your system specs. Everyone on here will be more than happy to help you, but we need to have all the information on the system to help better.
Also, start to read about burn in's and benchmarking tools. If you can pass prime-95 x 4 on your q6600 at stock volts with 3.2 oc, your cpu oc is fine. You can also use orthos. Also, memtest, memtest 86+, and super pi are ways to test out your ram. If you move your ram up in mhz, you must up the voltages.
Keep in mind that both mhz and volts will raise the temperature and stress on the ram and cpu, so be sure to test them!
