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
Yup, you should be able to stay with our stock volts for awhile as you up the FSB. I was able to get my 6420 from 2.13 upto 3.0 at below stock (1.34v, stock is 1.35v) and then at stock upto 3.2v…..3.4v required +/-1.4v. Just keep uping the FSB a little bit at a tmie until you get stability issues and then up the CPU core just a bit and test again. Unless you go crazy on the volts and leave it that way for a while without good cooling, you should not fry your cpu.

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.
Wow, that sucks for quad cores on this mobo…didn’t know…glad I have a dual core.

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!

Yeah - I thought it was only the SE SLI (which is what I have) but what he was talking about seemed Oh So Familiar. I went back and double-checked and sure enough...the LT is the same problem.

I actually am getting an E8400 to go with this rig to actually be able to OC it.
