Q6600 at 3ghz on asus p5q pro, settings?

Hi, just looking to get my Q6600 GO to 3.0ghz on a Asus P5Q Pro Turbo mobo, im running 4x 2gb Corsair ddr2 800mhz.
Dont want to go any higher, just after a super stable overclock for 24/7 use.
Thanks. :)

  1. 3.0 GHz should be pretty easy. Turn off SpeedStep. Increase the FSB to 333 MHz.

    Set the memory clock to 667 MHz - memory clock multiplier to 2.0 or whatever Asus does. If you leave the memory settings on AUTO, raising the FSB speed to 333 MHz will increase the memory clock to about 1000 MHz.

    You probably will not need to increase the core voltage very much if at all.

    Once you are finished testing, turn Speed Step back on if you wish.
  2. Thankyou i will try that..
  3. Hiker, check my sig, i have basically the same mobo & CPU. to get 3.0, all i did was up the FSB to 333, set the RAM to 667, set the CPU voltage to 1.35 and turned off speed step. I was later able to get to 3.6 without one single issue, but that is a different story, hope this helps.

    Also, is your CPU a B3 or G0 Chip?

  5. Any Luck Hiker?
  6. Yep that worked great many thanks!
  7. i have the same proc and mobo and i can get 3.0 ghz at 1.300 vcore 24/7 stable.

    Now, try lowering the voltage down from 1.35 in small doses to the lowest possible stable setting...

    My OC was 3.6 @ 1.44 voltage, i ended up lowering the voltage (little by little) and ended up still being stable @ 3.6 with 1.39 voltage...
