Default push it just a lil' farther

Any ideas on how I can push my cpu a little farther? Maybe 3.9-4.0Ghz
Heres what its at now:

If I bump the fsb up one then it will start to load windows get to the welcome screen then go black and turn off, and if I go any higher than that it just blue screens after I select my os it doesn't even get to starting to load windows

well, if you look here they are using something like a P5W which is similar to my mobo, and they are using the same cooler as me, but there voltages are lower and they were able to get it to go to 4Ghz...

yeah lower your voltage , just a little bit , maybe to 1.1 v and see , if it dosent boot you can reset the bios
ihavent overclcoked an e6600 before so i woulnt know how far you can go , also arent the chipsets different on the p5b and the p5w

ya your right the p5w is 975, p5b is 965, oh well I thought i heard the 965 chipset was supposed to be great for overclocking...

i have heard the 965 is good for oc'ing but the 975 is probably better

Pretty impressive still!! Those cpu's overclock amazingly, isnt it going to damage them going so much higher? Why can they oc so much more than other cpu's. Wish i had one lol
