Tape Mod for dell Q6600 - Page 2

post #11 of 32
ive heard of this and yes it does work. there was a thread here about it a while back it changes the CPU bus to 333 but it only works if u can run the q6600 at 3ghz with stock volts.

I think u have to cover two pins but now sure ill look now

I've done the 266 BSEL mod on a handful of Dells. The nice thing about this mod is it is completly reversible. And if it doesnt work, it wont damage the system. I have tested this mod ut on E4X00, E6X00 and E21X0 series chips with great success. It works on Dell and Intel built boards.

I did the 333 BSEL mod on my E6600 to test it out. I used copper tape used for motherboard trace repair, which I picked up at Frys. You can try this mod in see if it works. The CPU needs to be able to run 3.0GHz with default voltage though.



Note to the OP: I have the tape, so PM me if you need an inch or 2 of it. I can mail it to you at no charge!

It has the same effect as overclocking, but it has more chance to damage your CPU as you risk affecting other pins and wrecking the CPU

The tape is non-permanent and will not damage the pins. The point of this is to OC the CPU when you dont have bios options. It just forces the mothervboard to feen the CPU 333 FSB without changing the multi. So the CPU will boot at 3.0GHz

You misunderstood my post a bit

dr4gon made it sound like he was considering doing it as an alternative to overclocking, which isn't sensible.

And the way I could see it wrecking the pins is if you aren't careful enough and place the tape in the wrong place - this could short out a vital pin and destroy the CPU.

Electrical tape can withstand the heat? I would be concerned with the adhesives and general composition of the tape itself, you guys have verified that it works but how reliably and for how long? The Cpu is designed to get up to 71c before you start having any problems, does the tape melt or break down at that temp? I know the adhesive gets gooey at higher temps and has a tendency to migrate, the adhesive is made to be non conductive so I would imagine that if enough was on an adjacent pin that could cause some problems.

The copper tape I used does not melt, well becasue it is copper, and the CPU needs to get a lot hotter to melt it. The copper tape itself is designed to repair damaged circuit traces, so it has all the attributes you want for this mod. I have run the BSEL mod for a year on the E6600 (not that I needed to do it, but I wanted to test the process). When I removed the CPU, i used a wooden toothpick to remove the tape, thats it.

Well, the tape mod is still working great here on my Q6600 ... I downloaded Core Temp and ran it just to check that all is well and the cores are showing around 58 degrees C when stressed and 41 degress C when idle, which looks good to me. It also confirmed that the CPU is now clocked at 3.0GHz instead of 2.4GHz.

I suppose I'd better take out the CPU at some point and check that the insulating tape I used hasn't started to break down or go all gooey. However, I've had my PC running all day doing batch photo processing so it's been stressed and still working OK.

The tape mod is still alive and kicking on my Q6600! I've had no problems whatsoever - no crashing, no instability - nothing. It's rock solid at 3.0GHz.

However, I finally decided that it was running a bit hot so replaced the stock CPU cooler with an Asus V-60 (see http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1...46&modelmenu=1) which has dropped the CPU temperature by 9-10 degrees C or so. After fitting the V-60, the highest I've ever seen it is just under 50 degrees C for one core and around 48 for the others.

Still, I'm well pleased with the tape mod overclock ... all that extra performance for nothing! Can't beat it, really.
