I have a Q6700 with a G0 stepping at stock settings which is being watercooled on a 680i Motherboard from Evga. I have 4 GB of OCZ Platinum Revision-2 DDR2 RAM clocked at 800MHz.

I am looking to get a higher stable clock setting out of my CPU but I am relatively new to Overclocking. I have read many articles and forums and so much gathered that Overclocking these things are specific to each system. I was hoping if anyone here can help me achieve a clock speed higher than 3.2 GHZ

Here are my specs as shown by CPUz...

so can anyone help me out?

with your motherboard you might reach 3.2ghz if you've got a good cpu, otherwise you'll hit 3ghz.

to oc it, go into the bios and just up the FSB 5mhz at a time until it becomes unstable, then lower it 1mhz each time until it becomes stable. Run 4 instances of Prime95 to check stability.

well the 680i sucks for quad overclocking so ul but 3-3.2 should be realistic if your not planning to go sli then go with a p45 board
