Hy,
I know there are hundrets of posts with OC-ing the famous Q6600 ... partly because I read 90% of them ... but still ... i'm in a bit of a jam.

The target for my OC is 3.6 ghz, somewhat in the middle of the OC range but at the higher end with air cooling. Can't get the damn thing to run good not even at 3.25 ghz, not to mention higher freq.

I've tried lots of settings and with no actual results. Right now the platform is running at 3.25ghz for rendering and the 2.4 ghz stock when i need to work, because a 3.25ghz the comp acts very wierdly ... for example: in my CAD program, at 2.4 ghz everything works smooth, but at 3.25 it hangs, taking longer to perform basic tasks then usual. Allso, when oc, i get a strage message in prime, one of the coore stops testig because of hardware failing ?! Did some research, and aparently this problem occures when there is to much cpu volt for the amount of fsb, or the other way aroound. Try balacing settings, but with worse results then when I started, no boot or rebooting in 5-10 mins.

This is may curent seting for 3.25 ghz with a couple of images: Prime error, CPU-Z and core temp.

I know the CPU isnt the best OC-er because of it's VID of 1.3250v but still, other guys have passed the 3.4-3.5 ghz on air.

If somebody cand help me some advice ... I would be more then greatfull.
Sorry my 2-nd grade english, but it's not my 1st language.
