Ok guys I got a new one... I was able to OC my Q6600 I though I would give my P5QPL-AM with a E2160. There is no Vcore adjustments anywhere.

P5QPL-AM
E2160
G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)
Stock heat sink and fan
550watt Power Supply
Forgot the case model on the tower, but it's small and compact. I stacked two 120mm fans on the back of the case that suck air through a dust filter (house is very dusty) and blow right across the cpu fan. So far it works good there seems to be positive air pressure in the case so dust can't creep in all the cracks in the case. So far no dust in the dvd drive...lol I use this for my Karaoke shows only.






any idea what I should do to get the most out of it? I was able to get 2.47 anything over that and it wont boot. Guess I need someone to hold my hand on this one, lot of the bios wording seem different from what I am reading.

I took the time to post pics of the bios....













Can someone tell me what I should do?

Again thanks a mill guys and girls, great site.... Steve

Those links do not work in Saudi Arabia.

My only suggestion would be to make certain that the FSB:RAM ratio is 1:1.

I am not familiar with the Asus Core2 BIOS, but you should have the memory clock at twice the FSB frequency. At stock frequency, the CPU FSB frequency is 200 MHz, so the RAM clock should be 400 MHz (DDR2 RAM).

Overclocking RAM in a Core2 system just doesn't get you much except increased instability.

Here's one of the places some of us discuss that:

Well I think I might need a power supply, I have another one kicking around so I might try it. Notice the voltage readings and the temp readings are all over the place.....

I might try a little more and see what happens but for now it seems ok. I have to leave so I stopped the test I will bump it up a little more and test again.
