ClockGen help - Page 2

post #11 of 29
I messed around with SetFSB for a bit and got my q6600 to a stable 2.8ghz but i ditched it because the options are limited. Its just easier to get a new motherboard and you can push the OC much further, BUT if you can get a stable OC with an OEM board then why not.

Yeah I had an Intel 945 and it was locked.

I used cpucool to OC, and only got like a 15% OC before voltage was an issue, so it was worthless. Wasn't very stable anyways...

Wait, you're afraid that your CPU is bottlenecking your GPU?

Think again...

Boot in Linux and hack into PLL file descriptors to tweak FSB then switch to Runlevel one to get into the IO / PLL/ vcontroller Mode for the Mobo.... you are at such a low level that you can compile assembly scripts for your onboard controller and tweak your Voltages from there,,,,,

I stabilise my rig at 3.24 Ghz on an intel DG33FB from a Suse environment and restart back into windows without powering off the motherboard .... so the overclock is transported...

how did you go about doing that?
That would take a impressive amount of scripting and a lot of time.
