Overclocking Q8200 on X48-DQ6 motherboard

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just bought a new PC with these specs:

G-B X48-DQ6
Seasgate SATA 500GB
Q8200 @ 2.33ghz
G-B 4870x2
Thermaltake QFAN 750WATT
Thermaltake Xaser VI fulltower
Kingston HyperX 4gig (2x2gig)
I also have a Thermaltake Blue Orb II CPU Fan

Now I really want to overclock this CPU, but this is my first overclock and im scared I will permanently damage my CPU, I'm new to overclocking but been wanting to overclock for a long time. If I could get help that would be much appreciated thank you.

Lock the PCI-E bus speed to 100 Mhz and start increasing the FSB slowly (10 Mhz increments). Make sure you have disabled Speedstep in your Advanced BIOS Options. Make sure your ram stays under the rated frequency by adjusting the ram divider.

Until you increase your voltage, there is no chance of damage.

Send the Q8200 back and get a Q6600.

The Q8200 has SSE4.1, is a 45nm therefore cooler and will probably clock the same as the Q6600. I see no reason to send it back.

Half the cache of the Q6600 and a lower multi?

With a VID of 1.325v, how well do you think his Blue Orb II will be able to cool an overclocked Q6600?

So will I have to change my voltage at all and what FSB do you think I can reach?

Thanks

Hi, my setup on X48 DQ6 for 4Ghz. I think this may help.
http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...ml#post5283353

Stay with vcore max 1,40 under load. You can easly damaged 0,45 chip with higher voltage. Read my post about degradation of 0,45.
