Odd overclocking problem(q6600) Tags: Intel Overclocking RAM Boot Last response: March 17, 2010 5:01 AM in Overclocking Share csquared587 March 17, 2010 1:05:16 AM Whats up? I over clocked my stock q6600 to 3.0ghz and it passed a stability test in prime95. I got greedy and tried to overclock it to 3.4ghz, but I forgot to set the correct timings for my ram. My PC wouldn't boot, so I reset the CMOS and tried to start again. Now the PC will not boot if I try to overclock at all, even if it is with the settings I passed the stability test with. It is booting with default settings though. My MOBO is a Gigabyte P35-Ds3R I went 333x9 for 3.0 ghz set PCI express frequency to 100 Set my ram timings to 1:1 and upped my voltage to 1.350 Any explanations?

So at 3.0 GHz (333X9), your memclock should be 667 MHz. For a review: HOWTO: Overclock C2Q (Quads) and C2D (Duals) - Guide v1.6.1 http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/240001-29-howto-overc...
