Can some one tell my some general settings to put in the BIOS to overclock my q6600? My specs are:
q6600-cpu-z says it is running at 1.6 ghz sometimes, but 2.4 when apps load...not sure if thats good
3 gigs 667 mhz ddr2 hp stock memory
evga 7600 gt gpu
300 watt psu-not even supposed to be running a graphics card on this wattage lol, but i am upgrading soon to 700W or so and would like to know some starter settings i could try, and i just want to overclock it on air, maybe will upgrade to a zalman 9700 or something in future as well.
mobo-ASUS IPIBL-LA came stock with the hp comp
will the hp bios even let me OC? f10 to access award bios is says but idk what options i have if any for overclocking. give me some advice plz i am very newby lol.
That is the exact system type I got my 1.2000 Q6600 out of. Those trash type all in ones where they manage to cut everything and get it to like 450$ bucks for it all.
Down load and run either Real temp, or Core Temp, and list what either say your VID is.
If you luck out, and get a low VID chip, just fork over the cash for a mid level board, and just swap it out, adding your new power supply and that vid card, and you'll get excellent speeds at great voltages!
