I dont know what else to do to overclock my q6600 to 3ghz on this msi p6n diamond board. I trid using 1333 fsb x 9 or 1333 fsb x 8 and i still cannot get it stable. Can anyine help me with any good settings plz?
These are the settings i've been trying. When i upped the cpu volts to 1.275 it restarts as soon as i start prime 95. I once got it to give me about two hours on prime 95 before it rebooted. My temps at 3 Ghz are just below 68.
FSb Clock - 1333
CPU ratio - 9
Mem Clock - 667
Advanced DRAM - 4-4-4-12-1T and 4-4-4-12-2T
PCI-e Frequency - 100
CPU Volts - 0.0375 - 1.275 (I tried all in that range)
Mem Volts - 2.0
NB Volts - default and also 1.4v and 1.5v
SB Volts - 1.5v (Default)
FSB VTT - 12%
NB to SB Frequency - 800 Mhz
I disabled things such as speed spec., D.O.T, CIE Sup. and so on. I also tried fsb clock 1400 x 9 for 3.15 ghz but it still gave me errors. I cannot set fsb clock to more than 1400 though, else the system would freeze up and say system recovered from bad overclocking when it starts up back!
I think i do need a better heatsink but i am in Jamaica where its kinda hard to get good pc parts. Its wierd though because the people who i bought the pc from said they overclocked it to 3.4 ghz and i accidentally deleated the settings. But do u jnow why i cannot go past 1400 fsb?
I will try to increase the voltage some more even though anuthing after 1.275 is not safe occording to the bios screen. When i had it at 3.15 ghz i got max of 73c on ontelburn test and 70 on prime95. At stock speed my temps are around 45c idle and 62c load. Is that still high for freezer 7 pro or its because of the two gt's?
NB. The system i am trying to overclock is My 2K8 Upgrade as is below with nothing changed
70C on Prime 95 is uncomfortable, but still safe. Your 2 GT's may have something to do with your temps. See if you can increase the fan speed on both of your graphics cards to about 90%. I raised my 8800GTX's fan speed from 60% to 90% and my CPU temps dropped by about 4C.
Do you have any Arctic Silver around. If you do I would unseat the AC Cooler and clean the processor with alcohol on a cotton ball. Then clean the cooler bottom. Install one english pea sized blot in the center of the processor and then take a plastic card and spread it covering the entire top of the processor. then reinstall the AC Cooler..
