so i read a few other guides and found out that i dont have to change voltage all the time to get small overclocks.. so i changed my fsb and got the clock from 2.4 to 2.66ghz (yay?)
now my other question is.. to get to around 3 ghz i would assume i need more voltage...
right now my cpu is at 1.3125V
how much voltage do u think i would need for 3 ghz?
or should i just do the "trial and error" thing.. i just dont wanna fry my cpu haha
I have some bad news for you my friend....The LT and AR/TR boards are cost reduced versions of the A1/T1 680i. They lack the GTL reference voltage to overclock quad-cores. check this thread
The Quote in the very first post explains it a little better. I have one of these boards myself and a Q6600. I can manipulate it all day long and I will not be able to go past 2.799Ghz. The board just wont do it with a Quad.
It will OC the heck out of any Dual Core - but Quads will not. Sorry man.
This will limit your highest FSB….sorry that sucks! @ 2.799 you should not need any additional CPU core then.
Just in case, has anyone gotten higher than 2.799 on a Q6600 and 680i LT? If yes, please provide proof here, OP will be happy to see!
