Abit Ip35 & Q6600

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Could use any advice in OCing my system (see sig).

Here's some screenshots of BIOS set to AUTO:


What I know I can do:
Set Memory voltage to 2.2v (recommended).
Set Memory Timings to 4-4-4-12 (recommended).

What I need advice with:
What to set Memory tRC?
Wether I should dial up vCore while dialing up FSB or just leaving vCore alone?
Should I tweak other voltage settings? How bout CPU GTLREFs?

This is my first build so any help is appreciated!

Number 1 rule when overclocking anything Never use Auto settings.
Set basic ram timings to 4-4-4-12 at specified voltage, set vcore and all other voltages manually to stock settings, for get abotu the other memory timings for now and slowly raise the bus, always good to test memory first aswell with memtest, or set timings to 5-5-5-18 and tets for max cpu clock first.

I've set my RAM timings and also upped my FSB to 310 using default/auto voltages for CPU/MCH/etc.
Will let you know if any problems act up and also a screenshot of the settings when I get home.
