Currently I only have 4gb of mem in my rig, but I will be putting another 4gb in it, how might this effect what I am doing? Thanks!
that would be the multiplier ya leave it a 9x and see how high you can get the fsb with it at stock vcore and we will go from there

did you see my last post with the bios picture?
i have been hitting refresh.... but it didn't show me this post, it was stuck on the second page, check my last post

2.8ghz was the fastest i could ever get without changing core defaults by the way

If you got a error one with OCCT then you need to make the overclock stable before going higher, my q6600 has a high VID so it is very hard to get higher than 3.2ghz

You just need to make sure your temps don't go above 70'c and you stay under 1.5v on the CPU vCore.

I wouldn't be expecting 3.6+ unless I had a very good chip.

CPU-Z I am noticing that my multiplier is dropping to 6x (which I don't really mind) but I did turn off the speed stepping in the bios... and confirmed its off - its called CPU EIST Function. Anyway...

When talking about not going over Cove Voltage of 1.5v are we talking about in the bios setting... or are we talking about what CPU-Z actually reads?
I have my bios set to 1.4v cpu-z shows 1.36 idle and 1.31 under max cpu load.

I think my Ram is the weak link... I think the processor is fine, I will lossen the timings a bit again. But the values for the advanced ram timings... should I change some of those, I have a picture of my bios posted back on page 2.

If you change the title to "overclocking q6600 on ___________ mobo" you will get more help, mainly from people that have that exact board and will be able to give you some numbers to enter in.

I believe you need to up the FSB voltage. Thats what stopping you from going above 2.8GHz. That chip should do 3GHz on stock vcore voltages. Mine did without a problem.

I will change my title, how do i do that... when i hit edit.. it didn't let me edit the title just the text of the first post?

currently at 3.24 with +.1v fsb +.3v ram @ cpu 1.45 bios setting
going to run memtest... i blue screened at 3.4ghz blue screen is usually ram right?

How do I change my FSBRAM 4:5 more so that I can give my ram a break and let my proc go a little higher. I have the lowest bios settings I can put for my ram, that I know of, and my problem is that once my fsb gets to high, it makes my ram over 900mhz and it just can't do it. Is there another setting I am missing?

Ok first of all, your RAM's stock voltage is 1.8V, so that means remove that "+.2V" in the BIOS. That's making them run at 2.0V, which could cause some instability in its own right. Don't try to overclock the RAM and CPU at the same time, start off with the CPU, get it where you want it, and then try tightening down the RAM timings as much as you can while keeping your stability. So that means you did good by loosening the timings to 5-5-5-18, but that extra voltage can go take a hike.

Now for the Q6600: I had the same chip on the same mobo, and got to 3.4GHz 100% stable with 1.45Vcore in the BIOS, though I did have a chip with the highest possible VID (The stock voltage Intel programs into each cheap depending on how well the chip can clock. A higher VID is bad because that means it takes more voltage just to be stable at its STOCK speed of 2.4GHz) of 1.325V


I'd say go straight for 3.4GHz by setting your FSB to 378MHz and your multiplier to 9x with 1.45Vcore and either +.1 or +.2 on the FSB voltage. Put that in and tell us how it goes after some stress testing.

P.S. Make sure your PCI-E frequency is manually set to 100MHz, not auto. With auto on, it increases as your FSB does, and any PCI-E frequency over 100MHz can damage your video card.

EDIT:
To change your RAM frequency, look for something that says RAM:core clock ratio or something along those lines, and decrease it to the smallest number it will go to. (It won't be in 4:5 or 1:2 format, it will be if you divided those numbers, so 0.8 or 0.5 - Note that those two numbers are just for example, I don't think they are ones you can even select)

FINALLY - My MB settings are stupid! I thought I had the ram ratio as low as it would go, but the settings are not in order... they start at 2.5 and go up... then they jump back down to like 2... so finally I have it at 2 and can overclock to about 3.4ghz without my ram getting very high. - I did go and set the ram voltage back at 1.8 which is stock for the ram. So the ram isn't overclocked at all.
I tried to get the CPU to boot at 3.4ghz but it wouldn't... tried 3 times and took the voltage to bios settings of 1.475 and never could get it to go.

Currently! @
CPU 3.24ghz
CPU v @ 1.45

Headed out for the day, will run a test and get back to whoever post next... I am so glad I finally fixed the ram cpu ratio... so good!
