Yes, usually BSOD during a Prime test points to insufficient voltage.

0124 and 0101 are usually too low vcore. If its not Vcore, than its the fsb voltage. Try 1.35 fsb voltage. Its safe for 65nm quads.

Most G0 q6600 should be capable of 3.56 or more 24/7. Problem is your motherboard, nvidia chipsets arent that great for overclocking. Youll be able to reach 1600 FSB for sure.

I would start and 400 FSB with 8 multi and 1.4 load voltage and see if thats stable. If it is you can try lowering it. I doubt youll get much lower than 1.32 range.

If its not stable you can try going up to 1.45, altough I generally would advise not going over that, unless your sure your h50 will keep processor under 60 degrees.

ok So my motherboard only lets me set the FSB voltage to 1.3 or 1.4 there are other options as well but only in those incraments, is 1.4 to high of a voltage for my FSB? also i ran the most stable test @ 3GHz with 1.4 Core voltage and 1.4 FSB voltage... also what is the deal with changing the mutliplier how can that benifit me? again i know nothing about overclocking and kinda learning as i read from this thread lol

Lowering your multi will allow for higher FSB and a better FSB : DRAM ratio...

I wouldnt worry about that yet.. Chances are your ram is rated at higher voltage. In cpu-z there is a tab for Memory, open that and it will show you 3 columns.



In the farthest right column you will see what your ram timings and voltage should be set to...

Be sure when raising your FSB to keep an eye on your ram speed, you dont want to overclock the ram very much until the cpu is stable. Underclocking it is even a good safe way to isolate the cpu...

1.4v FSB is perfectly fine, and up to 1.5v cpu core voltage is safe.

Try and see what the error code at the bottom of the blue screen is, as posted before if you see a 101 or 124 in the numbering it means more vcore...

ok so i went to that tab and only the last 2 colums on the right are filled out with this info

JEDECE #1
frequency 270MHz
Cas#Latency 4.0
RAS# latency 4
RAS# Precahrg 4
tRas 13
tRC 15
Voltage 1.80v

JEDEC #2
Frequency 400Mhz
Cas#Latency 5.0
RAS# latency 5
RAS# Precahrg 5
tRas 18
tRC 22
Voltage 1.80v


and atm i have my CPUcore at 3150MHZ
FSB: 1400.00(QRD) MHz
Memory: 700.00 (DDR2) Mhz
SPP PCI-E 2500.00 MHZ
MCP PCI-E 2500.mhz
GPU Memory 135.00 MHz

Voltages
CPU: 1.4
Memory: 1.85
FSB 1.4
HT(SPP-MCP): 1.2
PCI-E : 1.4
nForce: 1.5
Aux: 1.5

bout to run a stress test on that with prime and see if its stable

I ran the stress test with the same voltages about but at 3GHz for about 3hrs Temp stayed about 48-50c on the CPU gonna try it again with this setup and hopefully it stays stable and comments or more help will be appriciated thanks again to all of you that are assisting me

You should let prime95 stress test run overnight, if stable then tomorrow you can try a little higher...

But first make sure its 100% stable so you have a base of settings to go off of...

ok its about 545pm where i am at i started the prime torture test about 15 min ago with the 3.15Ghz settings, so far so good with a core temp of 47c atm gonna let it run for at least 8 hrs or should i wait till morning and give it a good 16hrs?

4 hrs so far on the stress test at the 3.15 ghz spec the core temp has been fluctuating between 47-55 degrees Celsius so far so good?

Wow, what are you cooling that with? Your temps are looking really good. I had the Q6600 paired with the XFX 680i LT and holding a 3.2Ghz + OC was much easier with a pencil mod. Try a google search for 680i pencil mod and see if that is something you are comfortable with trying.

Ok guys it seems I have achieved a stable over clock of 3.15ghz ran the prime test for a lil over 16 hours and no errors and my temps never reached more than 57c , I did look u that pencil mod, but I don't get what you do, how it works, or what the purpose of it is thanks again for the help!
