PENTIUM E6600 3.06GHZ WOLFDALE OC

Hi!
So, I need a bit of help. Currently, I'm running this processor at 3.83GHz, stable with low temps in full load (MAX 70C), but how much I try I can't get over 3.95, it will just restart a few times and then resets the changes I've made. I'm not really into Overclocking, I don't know too much about it, so I need some help and I thought this is the best place I can find it.
So, my question is, what changes should I make or do in bios to get over 4GHz? What RAM timings, Voltage and etc I have to do to get over 4GHz?
Specs:
GPU: AMD Radeon R7 250 2GB Sapphire
CPU: Pentium E6600 3.06GHz Wolfdale (running at 3.83)
RAM: 4GB DDR2 Kingmax
Motherboard: Gigabyte EP41-UD3L with bios version F6.
CPU Clock Ratio: 11x + 0.5
BUS: 333
CPU Vcore: 1.575 (too much I think)
CPU Termination: 1.5V
CPU Reference: 1.01V
MCH Core: 1.4V
ICH I/0: 1.85V
C1E Disabled
Btw, I can't add more RAM (different manufacture but with same specs), all it does is 7 bips or something like that then restarts and again. What should I do?

They tend to top out at ~3.6-3.8. You can't go higher because that's the limit of the silicon. Go dry ice or liquid nitrogen if you want 4Ghz+.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)

Why on earth are you using this ancient CPU? No amount of OC will make it run significantly faster.

You're wrong, got like ~+40fps in csgo, and other games run slightly better after OC.
Well, my mother won't buy me another PC and she didn't ask me when she bought this ****. I ******* hate this ancient PC, not only CPU.

Used to have a Pentium E6300, was a great little CPU

Mine did 3,8Ghz @1,28V without any problem.

Too bad the TIM I used was garbage and I hit the temp limit

Otherways it would have done 4Ghz I think, but I realised it too late.


Other TIM gave me 25°C lower temps on my i5 750.

I don't think you'll ever get more out of that chip. Honestly that was near the max for the E6*** series and you're using a garbage chipset to do it. You really need the P45 chipset to get anything more than that.

If you want more performance, you can probably get a Q9550 for peanuts these days.

45nm Core 2 generation chips can go over 4 GHz, it just needs plenty of voltage and cooling. The FSB should not limit you since 333 is fairly low, and the 11.5x multi definitely helps. 1.575V is definitely near (or past) the chip's limits on air, though.

Did you leave the CPU voltage on Auto? 1.575v is way too high for those clocks.

Anyway, the reason you can't overclock more is two-fold:

1. The motherboard's chipset, G41, is strictly entry level and doesn't like to go much above 333 Mhz (1333 Mhz quad pumped) Front Side Bus, and you're already doing that speed overclocked. For more you'd need preferably an X38, P43, P45 or X48 chipset based motherboard.

2. That Pentium comes with a fairly high 266 Mhz (1066 Mhz quad pumped) Front Side Bus, which while good for stock clocks, is more limiting than the 200 Mhz (800 Mhz quad pumped) Front Side Bus Pentiums from the same era because they are much closer to the bus limit in terms of overclocking. That limit for Pentium silicon is usually near 333 (1333 Mhz quad pumped), which you're already at.


As to the RAM, if you're populating all four slots, you need single sided memory modules, according to the chipset's specs. See below the part in bold:

https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard...UD3L-rev-33#sp

Quote:
  1. 4 x 1.8V DDR2 DIMM sockets supporting up to 8 GB of system memory
  2. Dual channel memory architecture
  3. Support for DDR2 1066(OC)/800/667 MHz memory modules
    (Go to GIGABYTE's website for the latest memory support list.)
* Because of Intel chipset limitation, please use single-side memory module if four memory modules are to be installed.
