So i got my Q6600 to 3.0Ghz and im still trying to fine tune it. It is kind of difficult because my bios way different than to stickied guide. Anyways... i have 2 questions
1.When i bring my vcore under 3.0625 i crash in a few seconds but when i raise my fsb and north bridge voltage to +.1 it seems to make it more stable any tips on fine tuning that? i want to get my vcore down because when im doing my load test my temps are getting to the mid 60's
2. I have read a few things about the Ram divder... still dont get it. is it a setting? i have no idea, can someone point me in the right direction there
thats pretty strange that you are getting those temps...
how about your video card(s) what kind do you have?
have you measured the temps inside the case?
and when you say your vcore is at 3.0625 you mean 1.30625 right?(just making sure)
mid 60's isnt bad but it is extrodinarly high for the cooling you have. i never got above 40 when i was overclocking to 4.00 and when i go from 3.16- 4.9 i start to get up into the 70's
you would go into your BIOS and change your ram timing under memory. Just try to lower it one step. Also OverShocked if you use half of a thing of the Thermal paste it can be just as bad as not putting any on. All you need is a dot of thermal paste.
