I am looking for guidance overclocking my computer. Lots of options in Bios. Any help would be much appreciated.
OS: windows 7 64bit
Motherboard: ASRock 4CoreDual-SATA2 R2.20
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
RAM: 2GB Crucial CT2KIT12864AA667 (DDR2 667 dual channel)
Video Card: HIS Radeon HD 4670 1GB DDR3
You would also benefit from a RAM upgrade. If you plan on keeping the system a while, throw 4GB of 800 or 1066 in there while it's available and affordable. Otherwise just throw another GB (512*2) or 2 (1GB*2) in there, you probably already know someone with some old DDR2 in a dead box. As RAM gets older, prices start to go way up.
Sorry, it has been a minute since originally posting this. I have read the guide for overclocking Quads and I also have changed the memory to Kingston HyperX PC2-8500 Dual channel. Now my issue is that I cannot seem to get the CPU to clock past 2.457GHz (273 x 9). It posts but windows will not start if I go faster. So I still need some more insight and help.
