What settings for Q6600 @ 3.2ghz?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
First of all, this is my first time overclocking. I would like to overclock my cpu from 2.4ghz to 3.2ghz, but I do not know what to set for all the stuff in the bios. Like what multiplier, voltage, ram timings and voltages etc etc? Specs of my rig is below. any help is truly appreciated. The temp off the bios for CPU was 33°C @ stock frequencies. I am also on aim 24/7 : AwWiTzJERReeY

I'm running at 3.1ghz (344.5x9, 1378 QDR) @ 1.293v in BIOS, folding under load it's down to about 1.22v
but my chip has a pretty low VID, 1.2375.
what is your chip's?

Best is to run it at 400*8. You will need ~ 1.4 volts if you got a new Q6600.

should all the disabled stuff such as spectrum be left as is even after overclock?

I set the FSB to 1333 and left the multiplier at 9. Right now it is at 3.0ghz with 1.375 vcore and cpuz is reading the voltage at ~1.3V with OCCT running. OCCT displays the temps of the cores from 40-50°C under load and nTune shows it peak at 54°C. Can I achieve 3.4ghz and how? Thanks

With My Q6600 that I just got rid of, it ran perfectly fine at 1.42vcore, Multi 9 times 400. Which is 3.6ghz. I had the NB, up to 1.45 and the FSB term at 1.45, ram was set to 1:1 and it ran smooth. With OCCT running I would use Coretemp to monitor your temps dont use OCCT temp sensors they are not accurate just disable them in options, then as long as you temps dont go over 70 full load and u pass OCCT for 1 hour you should be set, thats what I did for my Q6600 with trial and error, yours would be similar just play with some of the settings, VCORE no higher then 1.45, NB and FSB same not over 1.4 is what I was working with.

what is fsb term? right now i am running at 3ghz/1.375 vcore with prime95 running for about 40 minutes so far so good. core temps read from everest ranges from 38-50. cpu temp is pretty much stuck at 55. Will I be able to make it to 3.6 with the settings you mentioned? also the bios has the voltage at 1.375 but cpuz reads 1.3.

FSB term is a bios setting, might not be on ur board, u got plenty of room on voltage if ur at 1.3, so set it up 9 times 400, vcore 1.4 and let it rip, see how it runs on prime, just stay below 1.45 on vcore and you should be good.
