alright

i've got a question: The recommended max vcore is 1.50, so if i set it to 1.54 in BIOS and it vdroops down to 1.50 which vcore should I go on?

I thought all q6700s are G0....anyways..
You definitely do not need 1.54 for 3.3ghz+

Instead, try to up your MCH a little more. Also do make sure your ram is ran at the correct multi.

If the above does not work, try to ran at a 9x multi ...9x378-~3400

does the 9x378 need less vcore then 10x340?
post #15 of 25
No, but sometimes running on a different multi can yield better stability.
But you should try to run it at 9x, with a vcore less than 1.4

ok another question.. my stock ram speed is 800mhz is it going to hurt stability if i have it running lower then that (like 750-790)?
post #17 of 25
only time I run my ram at 800mhz is when I'm trying to run 3.6ghz. Other than that its usually somewhere in the mid to high 700's. I have no problem with my memory at those speeds.

Hey, i just finish posting the same type of info for someone else that cant go past 3.0GHz. I also got a Gigabyte P35 board. I am at 3.4Ghz completely stable. Due to the fact that I am using a TRUE 120 extreme, I can raise VCore and still have good temps, but you should be able to easily get about 3.0,3.2,3.3Ghz. I'll give you some ideas of what I set to reach certain steps. Remember, every mobo and processor is different, so results will vary.

First, disable all of the power saving options.
Your Advanced BIOS features should look like this:
CPU Hyper Threading: Enabled
Limit CPUID Max. to 3: Disabled
No-Execute Memory Protect: Enabled
CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E): Disabled
CPU Thermal Monitor 2 (TM2): Disabled
CPU EIST Function: Disabled
Virtualization Technology: Enabled
Full Screen LOGO Show: Up too you
Init Display First: PEG

That will turn off all of your power saving features.

Next, from the main menu of your BIOS, hit control+F1 to enable advanced MIT Features.

First, set your PCI Express Frequency (Mhz) to 100.

Im guessing that you already know how to set your FSB and all that so I am not going to go into that. On the memory side, leave it DRAM Timing Selectable (SPD): Auto so the BIOS chooses the timings, only thing you should do is down under voltage control, raise DDR2 Overvoltage Control to whatever your memory is warrantied for. My Crucial Ballistix memory is good to 2.2V, and since 1.8V is the stock voltage, I added +.40 to my DDR2 Control to get it there. You have The tracer that should be the same check the crucial site to find out. Now, go to your System Memory Multiplier (SPD). What I found out is if you use the + and - keys, more options become available there. Scroll through all of the available options once you have set your FSB frequency to get it as close to 800 as possible to get 1:1 ratio.

Ok, now to the voltages. It's a hit and miss game down there so you will have to just mess around but here is what I was set at for different speeds:

2.8Ghz:
System Voltage Control: Manual
DDR2 OverVoltage Control: +.40
PCI-E OverVoltage Control: Normal
FSB OverVoltage Control: Normal
(G)MCH OverVoltage Control: Normal
CPU Voltage Control (which is your VCore): 1.23750

3.0Ghz:
System Voltage Control: Manual
DDR2 OverVoltage Control: +.40
PCI-E OverVoltage Control: Normal
FSB OverVoltage Control: Normal
(G)MCH OverVoltage Control: Normal
CPU Voltage Control (which is your VCore): 1.23750

3.2Ghz:
System Voltage Control: Manual
DDR2 OverVoltage Control: +.40
PCI-E OverVoltage Control: Normal
FSB OverVoltage Control: Normal
(G)MCH OverVoltage Control: Normal
CPU Voltage Control (which is your VCore): 1.32500

3.4Ghz:
System Voltage Control: Manual
DDR2 OverVoltage Control: +.40
PCI-E OverVoltage Control: Normal
FSB OverVoltage Control: .15
(G)MCH OverVoltage Control: Normal
CPU Voltage Control (which is your VCore): 1.40000

You can try that, hope it helps :0

I'm about to give up...I can't get this chip stable at 3.4 not with 9x multi or 10x. I tried using vcores from 1.40- 1.44 and the temps are to high past that. I've got my fsb over volt at +0.3 and the MCH at 0.3+. I think I have an ultra ****ty chip.

^^ What actually happens? No boot, fails prime, freezes?
