Need Help with Q6600 Overclocking...

post #1 of 66
Thread Starter 
Hi my name is Billy and today I just put together all my parts with the older cpu, HDD, and DVD writer I had.

I got a 9-9-9-24 G-skill sniper ram @1600 1.5v

Cooler master Hyper 212+ cpu cooler

ASROCK p43 mobo that supports 775 socket with DDR3 rams

Powercolor HD6950 2gig video card

Seasonic 850w OEM silver rated non-modular PSU.

CPU Q6600 @ 2.4 ghz

I got all my parts from newegg.com and all listed components can be found on their webpage.

I know that my cpu is old and is an obvious bottleneck for my HD6950 but I just can't figure out how to OC on this mobo.

I would like to use FSB 400 so I can get my memory to it's rated spec with 1:2 FSB DRAM ratio.

I've watched tons of videos on youtube and read some forums such as tom's and anantech but I still failed to achieve even a 3.0 ghz.

My goal is to hit 3.2 ghz with 400 fsb x 8 multiplier.

I also tried to unlink the memory so that way i can just work with cpu setting alone first but i can't find the option on the bios.

I was so excited about the new components I got and with my first build but now i'm frustrated that I can't get any oc out of it.

So please guys help me plz.. i know this is over asked question but i just can't find any links with q6600 with ddr3 overclocking guide on asrock mobo.

Thank you all in advance... wish me luck QQ

First off what is the VID and stepping of your Q6600. That will judge what you can do with it.

download core temp and take a screeen shot and post in here if you can. That will help us, help you more.

Also what ram do you have? What speed is your memory? We need more information

Also I can tell you right off the bat that that p43 is going to serverely limit any overclocking you want.

Download CoreTemp and take a screen shot and post it in here...As stated in my post above. Sorry if I am coming across as rude, but I am tired.... Tireness does bad things to me.

I got to 300 FSB 9 multiplier with 1.35v and i set my ram settings to it's default with 1t. However, I can't get passed 300 FSB yet. I tried to bump up 1-2 notches for every 5-10 fsb increases and when I save and exit from the bios, my monitor just idles looking for other imputs even the computers on.
Can overclocking affect the pci-e slot and not make it work?
