I must be unlucky with this chip

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Even when I upgraded my CPU cooler to the H50. This also having issues cooling off my extremely hot QX6700. I wanted to overclock it but I am having a lot of problems finding a voltage and speed that makes it stable. My motherboard bios is odd and I like to have someone guide me through it. I had a old Pentium d 945 overclocked at 4.2 ghz at stock vcore and I had no problems with it but this quad doesn't like to be overclocked at any speed no matter what I try. At one time it needed 1.4 vcore to even boot at 3ghz into windows but the temps were getting insane. I need to know what settings to try. The most confusing setting to me is the FSB VTT term voltage, it goes by percents (2%, 4%, 6% ETC) that doesnt help me any.

Here is my motherboard's pdf http://www.msi.com/product/mb/P6N-Di...l#/?div=Manual This has the bios pics and shows what the bios has

Someone please help me with this, i have been trying to overclock this for a week.

stock voltages
Vcore 1.3
NB voltage (1.25)
SB voltage (1.5)
ram voltage (1.8)

I like the H50 but for a hot CPU like that it's not the greatest, what are you getting for temps?

Maybe try a high end air cooler? A lot of people on here recommend the Noctua DH-14.

I really don't know that much about Intel CPU and Mainboard's. Have tried messing with FSB and multiplier adjustments and then test for stability?
