E6600 & P5B-Deluxe OC Help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys! New guy here. In terms of OCing I pretty much know what to change, but what I need to know is what are the maximum levels I can OC for my given system on stock cooling. Or, basically, what are the highest stable settings that people have been able to set and not look back on?

I'm not a gamer at all, so I'm not worried about getting the maximum fps out of a game or anything. I'm a 3D animator, visual effects artist, and film compositor. I'm looking to get that extra "JUMP" out of my CPU. I didn't want to do a trial and error if someone else probably has this all figured out and set.

Here are some pics of my specs from Everst & CPU-Z.





Hope someone can help me

depends on load temperatures and stability.

As long as everything is stable in prime95 for at least a few hours, than you should be good. Orthos is another program I keep seeing people talk about to test stability.
Also if you are at 80C at load, then that isn't good. If you really want to get the most out of your system, you are definitely going to need to ditch the stock cooling first.

Set as following:
CPU vcore- 1.36v [for starters]
CPU multi- 8x
FSB- 400mhz
FSBv- 1.3v
NBv- 1.4v
ICHv- 1.21v
SBv- 1.5v
PCI-E- 104mhz


Just make sure to change your RAM divider to a 1:1, to run your RAM at its default speed of 800mhz.

Your gonna need a aftermarket cooler for that CPU though..I think your load temps at 3.2ghz should be around 65c..try to lower the vcore if possible.

With this board you need to keep the pcie at 100 otherwise you get wierd peformance issues and crackling and static sound. Your using a soundcard so I dont know you'll have the sound issues but you will have issues with games.

I got funky static all the time on my P5B-DLX's..no matter the pci-e freq. I typically run a pci-e speed of 110-114mhz on the mobo for a small increase in GPU performance..NO RAID w/ the OC'd pci-e though..

Okay. Right now with the stock cooling it seems to balance around 50°C idle and around 70°C on a full load. I lowered the multiplier to 8 and bumped the speed to 372MHz. I'm definitely going to be getting a Notua after X-mas. That should help DRAMATICALLY.

Also, is my GPU running too hot, or is that normal for those?
