Need help overclocking new computer

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hi i just bought my new computer and i want to overclock it, and since its my first overclock i need help.

question: my cpu temp is 45-50c is it ok (temp by the abit p35 pro xe's program called uguru)?

my computer specs:

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 2.66GHz 1066MHz LGA775 BOX

http://www.foxpc.co.il/product.aspx?productid=308

Abit IP35-PRO XE 1600FSB P35 Chipset LGA775 Intel CPU

http://www.foxpc.co.il/product.aspx?productid=1126

G.Skill DDR2 4096MB 1000MHZ 2GX2 Dual Channel Kit CL5

http://www.foxpc.co.il/product.aspx?productid=956

Scythe 120mm S-FLEX SFF21D 800rpm

http://www.foxpc.co.il/product.aspx?productid=739

Thermalright Ultra -120 eXtreme+ ARCTIC COOLING MX2 Free

http://www.foxpc.co.il/product.aspx?productid=220

Cooler Master RC-690 No Power Supply ATX Mid Tower Case

http://www.foxpc.co.il/product.aspx?productid=920

SeaSonic S12-650 650W A.PFC PSU

http://www.foxpc.co.il/product.aspx?productid=1079

plus graphic card, Gigabyte Geforce 8800gts 320mb (old core, im planning to replace it with 9800x2)

so how much do i need to increase fsb and voltages?, is it better to use the uguru to overclock it?

thnx for the help.

Is 45-50C your load temps?

Do not use uguru to overclock. Instead, go into your bios and raise your fsb to 300. If that is a success, then keep raising it by maybe 5-10 fsb until it refuses to boot into windows. You will then need to raise your vcore a notch or too. Just make sure you watch your temps.

I would stay away from the uguru and use the bios for overclocking. usually bios yeilds better results and works better. As for overclocking i dont have your motherboard but somewhere in the bios there should be a place where you can change the fsb...should stock be at 266 and you can up it from there. hope that helps a bit

As before mentioned:
Raise the FSB slowly, when you cannot be prime stable for 5/10 minutes then upp the CPU voltage, keep going till this makes no effect the increase northbridge by a little and keep going
The main thing is temps though - set about 70 as you "max allowed" and if you get to 70C whilst priming, get some better cooling [more fans/better fans] or get to a level you want and keep it there

hope that helps

the temp is in rest, but i downloaded the "core temp" and "fan speed: fan speed says 45c, core temp says 32,26,32,26 (four cpu).
does anyone know a good program to test stabillty?

can i raise the multiplier to 10, instead of 6?

whats the max voltage i can put? how to overclock the memory? (im not overclocking the gpu since its stock cooled).

Prime 95:
Whe you first open it, cancel all popups [or click just stress testing if that one pops up]
Go to advanced, click "Round off Checking" [otherwise it will give no errors]
Then go to options, torture test, then either Small or Large FTTs

I'm going to guess that the multiplyer is 6 because of speedstep [power saiving thing - reduces multiplyer when at idle]
Have a look in the bios and disable it and all the other power savingthings [C1E, Speedstep, some others also]

Coretemp is always the MOST accurate program for temps

Max voltage i have used was 1.7v, but don't go over the 70C temp limit is a good rule [around 1.5v proably]
By overclocking the FSB of the CPU also overclocks the memory
Have a look in CPU-Z to see the memory settings [also shows the amount of vdroop forr the CPU]

Your Multiplier is 6 because of your BIOS settings.
Theres a menu where you can turn off several advanced CPU settings. One of these settings is a POWER SAVER that reduces the multiplier when the CPU LOAD is low. I don't have my manual on me but its there mate.

EDIT: Found the IP35 Pro manual HERE.

BIOS ---> Advanced BIOS Features (2.3 of Manual) ----> CPU Feature

SET C1E Function to DISABLED to prevent the Multiplier from being reduced because of low load.
When overclocking, I set all the others to DISABLED as well.
