Overclocking E6600 Help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi there and Happy Holidays to everyone!!

First of all, I'm new to the overclocking scene but I wouldn't call me a total nooob

Heres my setup.


MB: GA-EP43-UD3L Rev. 1.3
CPU: C2D E6600 65 nm currently at 2.997MHZ
RAM: 4 GB(2x2GB) DDR2 PC2-6400 800MHZ AMPx running dual
GFX Card: ATI RADEON HD 4870 1 GB DDR5
PSU: 800 watt XION
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper N520

I think thats all you may need to know, but if you need anything else, just let me know

I just got the RAM i mentioned up above for xmas, had some cheap crap in there before, the old RAM was corsair value select 1 GB stick and some hyundai RAM (lol) 512 stick, running at 667MHZ. With this setup i got to 2.997 pretty easily, 333 FSB x 9 with a ratio of 1:1. Ran pretty stable, but wasn't good enough for me. So I got the AmpX RAM 800MHZ so i could go higher on the FSB and what not. Now I've heard you can get the E6600 up to 3.6...i would like to achieve this. I know my CPU is way out of date but ya know, thats what i got lol thats what i can afford

So i got the RAM, set it up, went up lil by lil on the fsb, Vcore, didn't touch the RAM voltage. I was able to get it to 3.6MHZ, 1.45 Vcore and it booted windows, once i ran Prime95 the computer rebooted. so i went back to my normal settings of 2.997MHZ with a ratio of 5:6.

This is the part in which I need help with, I've read that you need to up NB voltage and SB voltage? Now i know were all these settings are, but I just dont know what to do with them, I just really need some guidance.. :/

So if anyone out there is willing to help me I'd be oh so happy I can answer whatever you like to assist me further in this. Thanks in advance.
