Switching OC parameters

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I recently OC'd my Q6600 to 3.21 GHz with a 9x multiplier and 359 FSB. I have heard that 8x and 400 FSB is better and is more compatible with my RAM setup. If I want to change these, should I start over from scratch? Will changing these parameters possibly change my voltage requirements, etc.? I have tried to just change the values, but the machine locks up on me after a while, so I am assuming that I need to tweak something somewhere.

Thanks.

No you don´t need to start from scratch, just change to 400 8 instead of 359 9 without change any volt, and set your ram to 1066 5-5-5-15 2T 2,20v and you should be fine.
