Help a noob OC and optimize this system please (Q6600) - Page 3

post #21 of 25
LOL, i'm still hoping for 333 but I think it won't happen until I can run at VID. And for theowl, error is the man with the info, he helped get here.

That's what I mean. If CPU is at 333 run your RAM at 333. If it's at 400 FSB, run your RAM there also. That should take your RAM out of the equation so you only test your CPU.
Then after you get that stable then you can work on your RAM overclocking.
Thanks, I get you now. I'll try putting my RAM lower first if I can if I want to tinker and see where I can get. For now, I appear to be stable at 320MHz and 800 for the DDR so I'll let it play for awhile.

And since the G31 tops out at 333 (mine refused to go past 340 no matter what, and I've never heard from anyone who got a G31 past 342 or so) and needs the extra voltage, you'll probably have to bring it back down. The last person I helped with a G31 board also didn't have an NB voltage adjustment, and I think he wound up around 310 or 315.
Yeah, I'm happy I appear to be running well at 320 now. It definitely seems to be a voltage issue to remain stable any higher. So there is no software to boost it at boot or anything? Thanks again error, you really helped me grasp the situation.

Not unless BIOSTAR releases a new BIOS with a NB voltage adjustment. It could be that they just designed an incredibly cheap mobo where the NB voltage cannot be adjusted programmatically. (If I spelled that right.)

I talked to BIOSTAR and they told me there is no plan to allow voltage adjustments on these boards and that I should buy their T-series if I want to overclock.

But how are my temperatures? They seem high to me but I'm not sure and not familiar with these Quads. I downloaded the RealTemp 2.9 beta, and now the TJ max is at 100. Right now my temps are: 42, 40, 35, 36. When I load a game and play for awhile, my max temps get to around 56. When I ran Prime95 and let it go for a good while on the large TFT test, full load, my peak temperature was 68. Are these too high? Do I need to invest in some better cooling?

Nope, just stay out of 70s because 71 is the limit for the 65nms as far as I know. But you can always invest in better cooling.
