Q6600 Help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So quite some time ago I built a new intel system with a Q6600 a P35-DQ6
and 2 gigs of G.Skill ram and it has always been an extremely nice clocker
til the DQ6 stopped working used a cheap mobo for awhile finally got a
" Good " one again P45-UD3P the whole problem is now I can't get the
thing anywhere near what it used to go really.

It used to run 3.8 ghz all the time 100% stable but on this mobo I am
absolutely unable to get it stable at speeds of 3.6 ghz even so I have
been running it at 3.2 ghz now so the big question here is...

Is this newer mobo that much more technical or is the cpu itself
getting too old to keep a stable clock? Please note I have always
kept it cooler than its ever needed to be and I have never gone
overboard with voltage.

Oh and I built an AMD Athlon II x4 620 system with 4 gigs DDR3 and
had read that it is pretty much just as good and maybe even a
little better? Thanks for reading any thoughts?

I know the p45 boards have more voltage options than the p35s. What voltages have you changed? Left on auto? etc.

It's probably not your motherboard or CPU, but memory. Look into these setting: vdimm voltage, timings, NB voltage

This is pretty close to what I usually tried maybe uhhh I think I might have
taken this pic when attempting some one elses settings but I dunno I could
almost swear I've tried any number of things ICH Core even makes things
unstable it seems when I up the voltage there..
