Overclocking E6600 + Foxconn P35A

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've successfully and stable overclocking this combo at 3.25GHz.

I'm having a hard time to get it stable at higher rate.
Just want to know if anyone has got this combo running at 3.3GHz and higher.
Maybe I should try with a different motherboard.
TIA.

Try updating your bois.
I remember reading something about that board having problems with good o/c's when using an older bios.

IMO, 3.2ghz is not a bad overclock anyways...

Yup got the latest BIOS on there. I've got it to boot into Windows running at 3.6GHz but won't pass the OCCT stress test. I had voltage for CPU at 1.56V, memory at 2.20V, and NB at 1.4V. It was running hot 70C and OCCT stopped due to overheat. Should I have higher voltage on the chip?

NO, do not go higher than that!
I'm not sure what kind of cooling you have, but for volts like that (1.5+) you at least need a w/c setup. If you're on air you don't want to put much more than 1.4v into your vcore.
Give your NB a bump and see if that helps.

Also, to make sure that it's your board and not your CPU that's unstable,
Drop the multiplier on the CPU and raise the FSB while bumping the NB voltage.

I bet you will see that it's the CPU itself that isn't stable at 400*9 not your board.
