Hey all. I know there are several threads about overclocking the Q6600 on the DS3R (seems to be a popular combo) but I am experiencing different issues and their solutions didn't work for me.
Basically, if I change the FSB at all, the computer doesn't post and the motherboard resets with default settings. I don't want to drastically overclock my system...3.0-3.2GHz tops.
Below are my defualt settings.
CPU: Q6600 G0 at 2.4 GHz - 266.7 x 9
FSB: 1066.8 MHz
1GB x 2 - Corsair Dominator TWIN2X2048-8500C5D XMS2
# Tested at EPP SPD settings (5-5-5-15-2T ) at 2.2V at 1066MHz
# SPD programmed at: JEDEC standard 5-5-5-18 values at 800MHz EPP standard 5-5-5-15-2T, 2.2V values
1GB x 2 - Kingston HyperX KHX8500D2K2/2G
240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM
DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)
I know the first thing people will probably say is: mismatched memory, 4 sticks; however, I tried increasing the FSB while keeping memory at stock 800MHz and all voltages on auto, and still doesn't post.
Anyway, I appreciate any help you can offer.
Also, for cooling I use the Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme and a nice 120mm fan.
