Default Re: Q6600 Oc

Okay i left the multiplier at 9 and changed the fsb to 333 for 3.0GHz and set my ram back to 800MHz. It booted but failed on Prime95. I upped the cpu voltage a bit and it's stable so far. I'll let it run for a few hours. 3GHz should be good for my wife, hell she didn't really needed overclocked before lol, I just wanted it to up to par with newer quads. Thank you

I got this ram in there 4gigs http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820231148
1st thing I did was up my voltage for my ram to 2.1 and set it to 4-4-4-12

Nice. The higher voltage was probably needed if P95 didn't remain stable. Good luck with that and just keep an eye on temps, too!


Cheers,
