E6600 + Asus P5E Overclocking Setup - Thoughts and Suggestions?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I am new to the forum (well I've been browsing for ages but just finally decided to register) so if this is in the wrong forum please forgive me.

I just recently decided to start working on a defunct computer of mine that I gave up on a few months back and have just been using a laptop. Turns out nothing was wrong with the computer itself, the problem was in the monitor. >.<

So I have been working on overclocking it since the CMOS battery is dead and I had lost all my previous settings, and honestly I don't remember a thing about overclocking.

My current hardware setup is in my signature. Specs below:

FSB Freq - 400MHz
Multi - 8x
FSB Strap to NB - Auto (Im pretty sure its set at 400MHz)
PCIE Freq - 115MHz
DRAM Freq - 800MHz
DRAM Command Rate - 2T
DRAM Timings - 4-4-4-12
AI Clock Twister - Strong (Not sure what this does)
VCore - 1.3625v
CPU PLL - 1.58v
FSB Termination - 1.38v
DRAM Voltage - 2.14v (Seems to be unstable any lower although Corsair claims it runs at 2.1v)
Northbridge Voltage - 1.35v
Southbridge Voltage - Auto
Loadline Calibration - Enabled
CPU GTL Reference - .63x
Northbridge GTL Reference - .67x

Everything not listed is on auto. This setup is currently stable and has been running good, but I feel like I could maybe go further on the FSB and Memory frequencies, but when I attempt to I only get repeating BSOD's.

Any thoughts or suggestions on these settings? Any ideas of how I can get to 3.4GHz with an FSB of 425 and Mem Freq of 850?

You want your pcie set at 100 anything over that with a nvidia card is going to cause sporadic instabillity. Your proably gonna need to up your cpu voltage or the fsb termination and set the memory voltage to 2.18

I will set the PCIE back down now.

In reference to the vcore, I thought the E6600's were capped at the voltage I am at now(1.3625v)?

the E6600 is a conroe CPU, it can take a beating. i had mine to 1.7 and it still came through even at 91c lol. and with the PCIe keep it between 100 and 110mhz.

Thanks for the reply.

I am now about to set my pcie to 107 (ive read that this seems to work well) and mess around with the cpu voltage and fsb termination, as well as the memory voltage. At 850MHz, should Corsair XMS2 run with 4-4-4-12 timings?

Results..

Upped VCore to 1.45
Upped FSB to 425
Upped DRAM Voltage to 2.2v
Upped FSB Termination up to 1.5v
Left Timings at 4-4-4-12

Posted but BSOD'd continuously until I decided to set everything back to how I had it in the OP.

Hmm... Now what? =P

Seems maybe thats a better area for this since this is not a new build.
