Please help-want to Re-overclock Q6600 From 3 to 3.2

I have a question regarding my future overclock for Q6600-_- to be ran at 3.2Ghz.

*I have already overclocked my Q6600(2.4Ghz) to 3Ghz...Runs stable, not a problem
Current settings and specs:


-Mobo: Intel DX38BT (1066/1333mhz)(x38 chipset).

-Q6600....Default voltage -1.325v

-4Gb of DDR3-1333Mhz (Corsair 2x2Gb). (7-7-7-24) 1.7v

-CPU multiplier -x9.
-Host clock Frequency -333
-CPU Voltage -1.325v (Default).
-FSB -1.3v
RAM Adjustments
-Memory Frequency -1333mhz
-Reference -333
-Voltage -1.7v (9-9-9-24)

The following is what I have figured out to be the right setting-adjustment for 3.2Ghz and 1600Mhz RAM

-CPU multiplier -x8.
-Host clock Frequency -400
-CPU Voltage -Have no idea (maybe 1.4?).
-FSB -1.3v (Not sure)
-MCH-Don't know
-Memory Frequency -1600Mhz
-Reference -400

Have no idea how to configure RAM for it, need someone's opinion on it.
I have tried couple things and failed :(
and I'm not very sure about CPU, FSB and MCH voltage....
Please HELP me figure it out

More about please help want overclock q6600
  1. 400x8 and 356x9 all get 3.2g, with about the same vcore, but 400x8 need more vtt (fsb voltage, and mcp), and it runs hotter.

    try 356x9, and ram at 356
    set vcore start with 1.3625, if stable, step it down a bracket, if not step it up. but keep it below 1.4v

    when you hit 1.4v and it is not stable, step up vtt(FSB) and MCP 1 bracket

    you just need to try and try, everyone's cpu/mobo is unique. good luck
  2. ****, you're so right....
