  1. first, download CPUID from the CPU-Z website and tell us what version the Q6600 is (either B3 or G0) then, since i have a similar setup, i can help you but remember, all hardware is different so you may not get the same results as i. Also, what type of RAM do you have, DDR-2 800?

    FYI: i have the G0 Q6600
  2. i already have those programs and my cpu has b stepping and is revision G0 and my ram is DDR2 1066

  4. Here are the settings i have for my OC @ 3.6 for the Q6600 in my motherboard:


    Motherboard: Asus P5Q Pro
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 6600 2.4
    RAM: G Skill DDR2 (2 x 2GB) 4-4-4-12

    Ive manualy got the PC set to

    FSB : 400mhz
    CPU VCore Voltage: 1.39V
    FSB/DRAM frequency Ratio : 1:1
    Memory Voltage: 1.90V
    PCIE Frequency: 100.0000
    Memory Timings: manual to 4-4-4-12
    Default CPU Ratio: Enabled (Min 06, Max 20, Currently at 9)
    Max CPUID Value Limit: Disabled
    Enhanced C1 Control: Disabled
    Intel SpeedStep: Disabled

    Any of the other settings i did not mess with.

    If the voltage does not work the same as mine, you can raise it to 1.44 from 1.39, that is something you will have to test till you get a stable overclock.

    Also, use the link below, it is a GREAT guide, read it over a few times, then start overclocking...

  5. dont want to go so far as 3.6 only wish to go to 3.0-3.2 until i get my computer running cooler
  6. don't think that you will yield the same exact results as me, lol, all hardware is different. Anyway, here's my settings for 3.0 & 3.2 respectively:


    Motherboard: Asus P5Q Pro
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 6600 2.4
    RAM: G Skill DDR2 (2 x 2GB) 4-4-4-12

    Ive manually got the PC set to

    FSB : 333mhz (for 3.0) or 355mhz (for 3.2)
    CPU VCore Voltage: 1.35V (for 3.0) or 1.37V (for 3.2)
    FSB/DRAM frequency Ratio : 1:1 (or manually set the RAM to 667 (for 3.0) or 711 (for 3.2)
    Memory Voltage: 1.90V (may be different than mine)
    PCIE Frequency: 100.0000
    Memory Timings: manual to 4-4-4-12 (may be different than mine, test the settings)
    Default CPU Ratio: Enabled (Min 06, Max 9, Currently at 9)
    Max CPUID Value Limit: Disabled
    Enhanced C1 Control: Disabled
    Intel SpeedStep: Disabled

    Any of the other settings i did not mess with.

    If the voltage does not work the same as mine, you can raise it to 1.39 from 1.35 or 1.37, that is something you will have to test till you get a stable overclock.
