I just overclocked. Your answer will be appreciated.

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone. I'm a noob so please go easy on me.
I recently overclocked my Q6600 I also ran Prime95 for an hour the temperature didn't reach 70. Idle at 40+ Since I always use FireFox and it actually uses the hardware. But please let me know if everything is alright I don't know much.

Here it is..

Why is my RAM like that? Isn't it suppose to show 800 or something?

Thank you.

No, if your RAM is 400mhz then it should around that area depending on your FSB. In this case it is 499mhz.

Presuming your stock RAM speed is 400mhz, it's nothing to be worried about if it is stable.

Thanks for the heads up.

How about the Vcore uhm and Voltage? Sorry for the newbie question. I still need to learn more.

Crank the voltage to 1.5v-1.6v.

Raise the FSB as high as possible (hopefully 450+ is possible).

Make sure your RAM doesn't bottleneck your stability. Clock it at stock.

Thank you. I shall try later. But what is the advantage of it and what does it do to help? So you mean my RAM is holding my CPU a bit doesn't it?

RAM doesn't hold the CPU.

As long as you set the ratio of the base clock of the RAM to the FSB, you'll be fine.

I still don't get it. I tried doing something but it kept shutting down so I reset everything then went back to normal.

Are you referring to the Ratio? Like 1:1, 1:2..?
And what voltage you mean? The voltage of the RAM?

Thank you.

Edit
Here I have another one with 1:1 ratio.
Is this what you mean?

even for 65nm ... isn't 1.5v kind of excessive why not something around 1.35

stock cooler?...

and maybe loosen the timings on the ram... or set it to 333 mhz for now

edit : o there ya go.. is that stable?

Trust me, it's not complicated.

See where it says your RAM is running at 333Mhz?

That's because your FSB is at 333Mhz. So, 1:1, your RAM will also be at 333Mhz.

At 1:2 (1 being the FSB, 2 being the RAM), your RAM will be running at 667Mhz.

It doesn't matter as long as you don't overclock the RAM. Keep it at "Auto" - don't overvolt it, don't clock it higher than stock (it's natural frequency). You could underclock it, say, if it was 800Mhz at stock, you could do 667Mhz just for extra stability.

Now, you're getting reboots because you either made a mistake or the settings you applied just simply not stable. It's normal and part of the process.

Do this:

1.) Set your FSB to 400Mhz.
2.) Set your CPU vCore and vTermination (if applicable) to 1.6v.
3.) Make sure the RAM, regardless of ratio is not set above its stock frequency.

And report back. If it doesn't work, take a photo of the BIOS screen and post it.

It's not excessive. I've been running my Q6600 @ 1.6v from day one.
