Alright, so with my fresh addition to my setup (OCZ Platinum XTC PC2-6400 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-800 CL5-4-4-15 DDR2 240PIN Dual Channel Memory Kit) and Vista installed, I wanted to test my overclocking capacity.
However, after a quick peak in the BIOS, I was surprised to see that all my efforts would give nothing. Sometimes I get "Overclocking failed", or the other time I just can't boot because it seems like my SATA drives won't get detected.
My FSB was set to 400 and my CMOS to 8 (wanted to reach 3.2ghz). CE1 and Speedstep disabled, along with the normal options also disabled.
Am I doing anything wrong, am I missing something?
Here is my config :
-OCZ Platinum XTC PC2-6400 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-800 CL5-4-4-15 DDR2 240PIN Dual Channel Memory Kit
-Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Dual Core Processor LGA775 Conroe 2.66GHZ 1333FSB 4MB Retail
-Nine Hundred Antec Case
-4 Normal Fans
-1 120mm Fan
-OCZ GameXStream OCZ600GXSSLI 600W ATX12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply
-Asustek P5KC Motherboard
My 6750 on a ga-p35-ds3l board runs overclocked to 3Ghz FSB 375 mult 8
rock solid.This is with cpu NO VOLTAGE increase. Will your setup do this?It should. Over 3Ghz you will probably need to up your voltages.
Alright, I'm ready to overclock but not too sure about what to change in the memory options. I won't touch the voltage settings but I'm not too sure what must be changed in the bios to make the RAM follow the o/c. This is the pattern I'm following but my RAM isn't the same one that they tested.
