Q6600 freezing Problems

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey this is my first post and my first time overclocking my CPU:

I have a Q6600 2.4GHz (kentsfield)
4G DDR2 800
750i EVGA SLI Motherboard
also a Zalman CPU cooler which is great

these are my first OC specs:
FSB 1333
RAM 800
CPU core Voltage 1.325
CPU FSB 1.30
Mem 1.9
NForce SPP 1.4

I tried these settings but it is unstable and the computer freezes and i have to hold the button for 5 seconds to restart

I've tried bumping the voltage all the way up to 1.5 but it still freezes
Does anyone know what are some good settings to keep it at 3.0GHz stable?

have you tried bumping your memory controller voltage just a tad. You really shouldn't put your voltage too high on your chip just to try and get it stable.

Try VTT@1.4v & CPU GTL @ 0.648

What settings have you already disabled in Motherboard Bios?
EIST, C1E, CPU Thermal Monitor, hyperthreading?

No matter what voltages i set it to...it just wont stop freezing...and i know that this CPU should have no trouble running a 3.0
post #8 of 9
Nforce boards arent good overclockers, how many sticks of ram are you running? Also whats the stepping on the CPU B3 or GO
