Asus P5B SE overclocking q6600 quad Tags: Motherboards Overclocking BIOS Processors Last response: January 31, 2010 12:26 PM in Overclocking Share deezdrama January 27, 2010 11:40:55 PM Does anyone have this mobo? The bios it shipped with only gives the option for overclock profiles of 5,10,15,and 20% on the processor. Ive set it to 20% before but didnt notice much of an improvement on benchmarks so set it back to standard. Now if I pick 10% or more and save bios it posts that overclock failed and resets it back to previous setting. I dont know if a newer bios flash will give me more overclocking options or not??? I would like to get a nice aftermarket cpu cooler and get the processors cores running @ or close to 3ghz per core. I found an overclocking guide for the p5b deluxe but cantfind any info for the p5bse that i have. I plan on getting an ATI 5870 vid card but want to make sure my cpu isnt a bottleneck. Also running 4 bg of supertalent pc2-6400u ddr2-800 @ 22.214.171.124 will this ram be ok or should i upgrade? thanks More about : asus p5b overclocking q6600 quad | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove deezdrama January 28, 2010 1:39:07 AM Yeah - after a little playing around I found I am able to set cpu frequency but not voltage. My ram was running at 533mhz 126.96.36.199 timings I set it to 800mhz 188.8.131.52 I then tried a 30% OC profile just to se if it would run but I wasnt going to keep it at 30% for long due to stock cooling.... but windows blue screened... I backed the OC profile down to 20% and it seems to be running fine. sandra lite says vcore voltage is 1.325v Also says front side bus speed 4x 320mhz I went from 2.4ghz to 2.88ghz. Do u think this will be ok with stock cooler? I will have to run a benchamark and monitor temps i guess. Now was i supposed to manually set ram speed to 800mhz or leave it set to auto since I increased cpu speed? I thought they increased together or am I wrong? | Report abuse deezdrama January 28, 2010 1:39:17 AM cpu-z says my dram frequency is now 480 mhz ?? | Report abuse jsc Motherboard Master Overclocking Master January 31, 2010 12:26:45 PM With a 320 MHz FSB, your memory clock in the BIOS should the 640 MHz for a 1:1 ratio. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Overclocking>Asus P5B SE overclocking q6600 quad> Related ressources: ForumNoob asking How to Overclock a Core2 Quad Q6600 ?
