HAHA OK. that makes a bit more sense. I see what you are saying about the bottleneck now. I think your CPU may be holding you back. Clockgen may work but you wont get too far. You may be able to get to 2.8ghz if your lucky.

I think crystalCPUID allows you to change the voltage from inside windows, am i right? I have never tried this but has anyone else? It may help you get over that voltage wall you will hit but then again you may fry your board. Im not sure though.

Will I able to get my CPU to 2.66 without voltage increase and will i get a significant FPS increase (will it decrease the bottleneck very much)?

I think I'll use SetFSB
It Can Run Crysis

Im not sure, ive never used an E6600 before. I would think you could hit 2.66ghz without upping volage. Maybe even 2.8. i had an E6400 but didnt try to OC it too much. You know what to do if your PC crashes right???? SetFSB is just like any other overclock. If windows crashes due to an unstable OC then you have to set the BIOS back to default.

Well im a robotics Engineer in India by profession so I dabble in a lotta Linux Low Level stuff... We had ordered an experimental robotic base some time ago for a project and the on board computer was running on a UNIX base. It was slow so I tried to OC it. No luck because I Was a cpl of layers of abstraction above the OS. Stepped down one layer and yup installed the assembly compiler onto the Robot to be able to code in assembly direct... Got Pretty stable on that with an OC of like 40%.

A cpl of months ago i was down sick with herpies at my apartment.... (three guesses how i got them ;-) ) Had an Intel Rig lying around so decided what the hell..... It took around a week of scripting and several crashes to get into Vcore...... but i got there.... Vdroop was still an issue but managed to tackle that with loosening RAM timings....

the only problem i have is that i have to execute a whopper of a Hex file every time i boot to get everything running... I'm on AIR cooling .... CPU started throttling so i just got a toolkit ... Drilled huge holes in some places in the cabinet after some elementary fluid mech calculations and installed another 80mm fan in there... temperatures were down to 35 idle and 55 loaded at 3.24 with RAM somewhere at 5-5-5-18...

but still its a bad idea that i wouldnt recommend to ppl ..... even after all that trouble i still experience the odd random crash or two....

if you said you were running windows then i would say thats just normal Either way, ill just stick with the good ole method of OCing but its still impressive that you could do that. Robotics huh, sounds cool.

he should be able to hit 3 ghz without changing the voltage i can drop mine from stock with a vid of 1.325 and still hit 3 ghz

Hell yeah its cool man.... The robotics lab is kinda the only place where i feel I have normal social skills.... we prefer to talk in Maths more than we care to talk in English.... but i've been thinking about the crashes and im beginning to see a pattern here. Anytime the shell(both windows and linux) finishes doing something heavy.... and suddenly idles the core after an abrupt load period.... the multiplier automatically changes to 6X from 9X for power conservation... if i could just disable these step ups and stepdowns....i could probably get rid of these random one off crashes....must read up on this further.. and I am in complete agreement about the good ole method of BIOS OCing....

if he lets the Mobo auto voltage setting supply the voltage... hes gonna run really high temps at 3 Ghz.... if he doesnt set it by hand the Mobo is gonna supply real dollops of volts to his chip and if ihe doesnt crash for 8-9 hrs consectively.... and is also cooled well... he's still gonna fry his transistors with over-biasing.... u cant overclock a chip and give it voltage on Demand... thats like giving a monkey a loaded gun and an unlimited ammo patch ;-)
