thats really cool
3.6 GHz on a Q6700 nice
ill be happy with 3 GHz though
i doubt if my Heatsink will be able to deal with the heat from a 3.6 GHz CPU

@ Tech- thats why you got a quad i hope you get your new board soon
i really like mine
now i just need to find the time to OC it

Techmaster05 is looking at getting the same CPU and mobo that i have
so this will be an instructional thread for them

Depends on a lot of things, but you should be aiming for load temperatures anywhere at or below the 60*C mark. That should be a perfect indicator of how your overclock is doing. Obviously the lower the max temperature, the higher the lifetime of your Q6700.

Did you try any of the recommended settings? Make sure to do this and check the temperatures so we can understand what we're dealing with.

hedoe, if your on a stock cooler i seriously suggest you dont do any ocing. I ran prime95 for around 15-20 minutes on 100% load, and my cpu was getting up to 76C, and slowly rising and i have a pretty good case with a lot of air flow

Max temp for the G0s is 72c. Anything under that at 100% load is safe.

i dont have a stock cooler
i have a 92mm 6 heat pipe cooler
see links in first post
i OCed for a little bit
getting it to 3Ghz was easy
but is not stable
i havent touched my voltages yet
and the max temp was around 60*C
i ran P95 for not even a full test and then tried to start FF
then it rebooted on me
interesting fact is that i could get 6.7GHz if i left it at that freq
but im not that dumb
i want this pc to last for a while
and still perform for me

here are some of the specs
Q6600
Q6700
im wondering if the slight differances between the two CPUs would mean that i should adjust my voltage so that my core becomes stable
or should i just drop the freq
and give up on 3 GHz?

Never you said you did? And I read the entire thread.

My advice would be to go back to defaults (load fail safe defaults). It's easier to start with a clean slate.

1. We want to eliminate all variables, so set the RAM:FSB ratio to 1:1. Sometimes you won't have a ratio option in the BIOS, just a DRAM frequency option. At default, your FSB is 266 (266x10=2666MHz=2.66GHz), so RAM frequency should be DDR 533. (Don't worry, we'll deal with this later)
2. Set all voltages manually. If left on auto, the motherboard will try to determine voltages for the set frequency itself, which it's not very good at (probably the cause of your instability).
Set voltages to these values:
Vcore: 1.25V
FSB voltage/VTT voltage (goes by either of these names): 1.2V-1.3V for the 65nms. Preferably 1.2V if this option is available.
CPU PLL: 1.5V
NB voltage: Lowest value available, this is the default. We may have to increase this later but it should be fine.
SB: default.
3. Disable CPU spread spectrum and PCIE spread spectrum.
4. Now, simply change your FSB frequency from 266 to 300MHz. Make sure the multiplier is set to 10x. 300MHz x 10 = 3000MHz = 3GHz.
5. If this really is a G0, it should boot into Windows with zero probs, Nvidia chipsets really do suck if it doesn't.
If it doesn't, or if Prime 95 reports an error or reboots, the first place to look is the Vcore. Increase it in small jumps up to around 1.35V. If it's still crashing at this Vcore, we know that's not the problem. Raise the NB voltage up one notch next. This is likely to be the problem if the Vcore isn't. If that doesn't work, report back with shots of CPU-Z (to see in Windows voltages)

I was hoping you'd chime in, Worshipme.

Hedoe, follow his advice on the overclocking. I did the same and my computer has been running flawlessly for over a year now.
