Q6600 overclock to 3.0 - 3.2 Ghz - Page 3

post #21 of 94
Thread Starter 
I've just noticed that the Core Voltage in CPU-Z keeps varying up and down all the time.

I removed any BIOS setting that was in auto regarding CPU control, I am wondering if that's normal or if I am missing something...

Ok, it went well with 2.88Ghz @1.3625V (BIOS), temperatures not above 49 Celsius. I am using SPD 2.00D which proved to be stable at this point instead of 2.00B. I think that the freezing up is related to SPD.

After reading a bit more about my mobo's BIOS I realised that there is no way to unlink RAM from FSB so I'll have to work with this together.

Now another question, when should I start to worry about NB (MCH) and FSB overvoltage control?

Going to try 3.0Ghz @1.3635V now (x8 380).

It might be a bit annoying but I am going to log all important events here. It might help people that may try the same I am doing in the future.

Well, what I quoted above didn't work, I increased to 1.3700V and it also froze. Decided to reduce multi to x7 380. It also froze at same volts. I thought it was something else as my temperatures are very low, and also considering that my Q6600 is a G0 I am expecting to reach 3.0 Ghz at around 1.36V anyway.

I took a chance and increased the NB by 0.025, ran the tests and it worked. I might be getting an idea of this process now, I guess I'll try to balance it up FSB vs Multi and bring NB + FSB voltage up everytime I get a freeze, if CPU Volts doesn't change the freezing scenario...

PS: I haven't touched FSB voltage yet...

Next step now, 2.80Ghz (x7 400) with SPD at 2.00D (same as before) and NB (MCH) +0.025.

Ok, the above worked and also tried x7 420, same settings as before, just increase FSB, passed the ibt test.

Going to pass the 3.0Ghz mark, it seems that I am in the right path.

Ok, this was an interesting one. It failed 1st attempt, Windows didn't freeze but ibt said it wasn't stable. I decided to up the CPU volts a notch and it worked.

The interesting part is that I noticed a light increase in temperature maximum 56 Celsius and the time per Gflops much faster on the failed attempt.

After bringing the CPU volts to 1.3750V the maximum temp was 54 and Gflops a bit slower.

Dude how are we suppose to even see those pics? I cannot read them at all!

Maybe I reduced them a bit too much, I'll try again later.

Images fixed, I hope you can see them now...

Ok guys, it looks like I hit a wall.

I am trying now x7multi 460FSB for a total of 3.22Ghz. SPD is 2.00D, NB (MCH) is +0.025 and CPU volts @ 1.4V.

It keeps crashing as soon as I launch ibt or a minute later.

I have tried to increase MCH to +0.050 and no difference.

FSB +0.05 also no help.

Blue screen (memory dump with last two).

I think my expertise stops here, I'll keep trying but if any of you can give me a hand it would be great.

Temps are running low, maximum at 54 Celsius with 100% CPU load.

You should try a lower FSB and higher CPU multi, a high FSB can be hard to get stable on a Quad core CPU. So try 400x8, and that should be much easier to get stable as it doesn't stress the board as much.

Great call Acoma_Andy, working on it, had a blue screen during ibt, I am pushing the CPU from 1.37V to 1.39V, lets see.
