I can't tell ya which mobo is "the best" but pick one that is able to pump alot of juice into the processor. Although I really love my Asus P5W DH Deluxe unfortunately its CPU core voltage maxes out at 1.7v which in turn gave me a max stable overclock of 3.6ghz on my Q6700. It's been running fine for about a year now on 1.7 but actual voltage is more like 1.66v. I would have loved to have a mobo with a little more ovehead to break that 4ghz barrier which I know is possible, just not with my (particular) mobo. I have my Q6700 watercooled with a Corsair H100 so temps even under load stay nice and cool. These 65nm quad cores seem to be able to take a lot of Vcore, or actually need it is the better term. Mine does everything I need it to do and having just upgraded to a 64bit OS I am really seeing the benifit from an overclocked quad core.
They really still hold their own in a very respectable fashion in 2014.

3,6 Ghz it's pretty much what I want to reach with my Q6000 G0 - on stock voltage if I'm really lucky OR 1,4V max Vcore.

I was using, well still am using the 790I xfx ultra sli and it overclocked very well, I just never wanted to go over a certain volts I guess I could now as I am not using the 775 as my main board anymore, but as my back up rig (AGAIN) lol.

My 775 has been my back up and main rig on and off for 7 years wow, and truly it did a bench with my GTX 680 that held its own against my I7 920 oc'ed final score and beat my oc'ed AMD 970 BE. I would be up set if my main went down, but be covered by a old 775 that has stood the test of time a won lol

Can anyone help please.

Just google your mobo and see what pops up. Read as much as you can about overclocking LGA775 in general and then try. There will be a lot of useless, missleading info as well so just try and see what works for you. But there is no quick overclocking guide available because that is not how overclocking works. You can have 2 exactly identical mobo, cpu, ram, gpu, everything else identical setups and get two different overclocking results. You might get lucky and get a good chip that overclocks like a champ with minor Vcore change or you might have to pump so much Vcore just to get a reasonable overclock.
Just take it one step at a time. Change one setting at a time. Get temp monitors and install CPU Z to monitor your overclock.
Test, test, test. No overclock is an overclock unless it is stable. Download Prime95 and run it for 8 hours minimum and get Intel Burn Test for quick confirmation of a stable overclock.
Also before you even start you need a really good CPU cooler. Watercooling is in my humble opinion still the way to go but there are some good air coolers available.
It will take time because if you are like me and you wanna squeeze out every last mhz possible (usually just for bragging rights) you will have your rig running Prime95 quite a few nights.
And never be afraid to up the Vcore. As affordable as LGA 775 chips have become you can easily buy another one and the biggest danger is overheating as a result from overclocking, not overvolting per sé.
Remember, overclocking is not an exact science, rather it's more of a crapshoot but when done correctly it will certainly and noticably improve the performance of your rig.

The best of luck.

I don't get the point in running prime95 for such a long time... I think ginger_nuts wants to overclock for benching, not for daily use, so prime95 is not so important.
My 2 cents.

Sorry, not your $0.02 at all. Not even $0.000002! You say you don't get the point in running it "that long" but you don't even say why or even give a theory as to why you feel it is not wise to do. Also, ginger_nuts didn't state anywhere he wanted to overclock for benching, just asked for a guide so I thought I'd give him some advice.
Not sure why you read my post and nit picked on something and made it into a negative when I'm simply trying to help someone but it doesn't make me take you very serious.
post #937 of 1370
Even if Bogd4n doesn't have a high post count, he's been around overclocking here for awhile, and ginger_nuts looks after one of our "suicide" clubs, so maybe Bogd4n does have some insight into what Ginger_nuts wants to do.

I'm sure Ginger Nuts can tell us himself if we are on the wrong tack.

Anyway, back in my X48/E8500 days I used http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte/26112-gigabyte-x38-p35-p965-ds-dq-s3-overclocking-general-bios-tweaking-guide.html

Even if they haven't got X48 and P45 in the title, they're included.

This is true I do purely want it for bench marking, hence my latest endeavors HERE.

I have no plans of using my 775 setup for daily use, unless my PC goes down for a re-build.

I have printed that guide out and are currently studying it thumb.gif But tell ya the truth it is similar to doing non unlocked chips, a ton of trail and errors, before you get it right.
post #939 of 1370
Stubbsy does 775 chips on phase. He might be able to give a few tips. What mobo?

P965 Commando needs a volt mod and Giga P45 wont give enough volts for pre core2duo chips (Is it a 1.4v limit?) ..... afaik.

Hey there sorry to butt in, I have a question about this specific mobo you mentioned here, the P5W DH Deluxe. I have the exact one, but I have an issue with it. On boot up after being turned off for at least an hour or so it says 'bad bios checksum' and does this loop where it checks drives, usb, for a bios file or something. I used to be able to hold insert to skip that loop and get to the bios options, but it still resets the time and goes to default.

I have replace the battery, checked ram, breadboarded it, used different psu's, updated bios. Nothing seems to fix it.

So do I have a bad board and just gotta let it go, or is there some small chance of repairing it? What if I find a bios chip, is it worth the effort to try and fix?
