Hey guys,

I wanted to OC my 2.4ghz Q6600 to a meager 2.6ghz just for a little extra oomph.

However, I have literally no clue how to do it. I was going to try and start and then my friend started mentioning RAM timings and all sorts of hub-bub and I was just like.. floored. Can anyone help me out here?

I'm using an Asus P5N-E SLI mobo if it helps anyone know the BIOS.

For a little 200mhz OC you do not need to worry about RAM timings and voltages you should be able to just raise the FSB to the desired 200mhz OC and be good to go.

Read this guide for further info.

Hmm, all those links just say about how it doesn't exist anymore.

Hopefully it's a simple process, I wish it was as easy as ATI makes it to OC with the CCC.

A G0 stepping Q6600 should be able to run at 3.0 GHz (333 MHz X 9) with little or no voltage increase.
