Q6700 OC Trouble

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Early in the week I decided to overclock my Q6700 and I took it slow. I read on here that the Q6700 could get to 3.0ghz on stock voltage so I slowly crept up to 3.0ghz and sure enough it got there on the stock vcore (1.25v). It was stable on prime95 for a couple hours so I decided to keep going. I put it at 3.1 on the stock vcore and it was stable for a couple hours. So I knocked it up to 3.2ghz and ran prime and it was stable for two hours as usual. This was probably around Tuesday or Wednesday and then I became busy with school and work so I didn't have time to really watch it and run prime for more than a couple hours. Well today I decided to let Prime95 run for longer than usual so before I left for dinner I started up Prime95 well I came back a couple hours later to see my computer restarting. I just figured that it had crashed and that I needed to up the vcore. I increased the vcore by a notch and restarted my computer. Well it got to the "Welcome" screen on XP and I got a BSOD and it restarted again. So I increased the vcore again and it did the exact same thing. So I turned off my computer and let it sit for about 15 minutes and then I started it up again, it posted and came up with a message saying that my overclock had failed. I set the FSB back to 2.67ghz and put the vcore back at 1.25v and it still gave me the BSOD and restarted my computer. By now I am really starting to worry, so i set the vcore to auto and left the FSB at 2.67ghz and it booted up windows. I was like "phew it works!" so then I left to take my little brother and his friends downtown to see the fireworks and stuff and then I come back 15 minutes later and my computer is restarting itself over and over. What have I done? Is my quad done for good?

Take out your CMOS battery, leave it out a couple minutes and put it back in, then you'll have to reconfigure your bios, but things should be ok. you are barely putting any voltage in it.. the max intel recommend spec is 1.35, but the intel specification actually allows for 1.55V max.. of course you can even go higher than that even with extreme cooling (phase change, ln2, etc., but the cpu will also in time start to suffer electromigration effects eventually and shorten its lifespan.

Wow, that was the same extact problem that happend to me yesterday amazing... how i fixed it was i used the windows xp cd when your comp boots, choose repair. And when your in the repair console type "chkdsk /r" and wait a very long time and when it done no more problems. But i think nettwerk solution might be faster.

As netwerk posted, pull batt and let sit overnight.. once bios loads next time you start it choose "load optimal defaults"

When Overclocking ther is more to it than just upping the FSB and voltage...

you need to take care of all settings in bios... Also you need to set the mem as to not OC it at same time as cpu... If your memory OC'd with your cpu chances are you had ddr2 800 ram running way past its limitations

check out the intel motherboard section and do a search for your board. Im sure there is a guide there..

I let my computer sit for a little bit and started it back up and it said that my overclock had failed and to either select it turn but it back to default settings or to going into the BIOS and change it. I told it to put it back to default settings and it is working fine now. Should I still pull out the CMOS battery?

Nah not necessary, if its fine now. Pulling the battery would just force your BIOS to reset all the settings, if you were unable to access it to do so any other way.

my initial guess would be u didn't optimise your RAM spd according to the OC, therefore BSOD. try mucking around with the RAM if you want a stable OC.

I think that is the problem as well.

Does anyone know the setting to turn off so that it doesnt mess with my RAM as I am OCing my cpu? I looked for a overclocking guide for my mobo on here but didnt find any threads on it.

dont worry, ur RAM is underclocked until u reach 400 FSB with 1:1, set auto for timming and try 2.0 - 2.1v
