Overclocking Help Needed Q6600 ASUS P5N-D @ 3.2GHz Tags: CPUs Overclocking Last response: June 4, 2011 9:39 PM in Overclocking Share Chriger May 25, 2011 8:40:50 PM Hello, I am a large FSX (Flight Simulator X) person, I don't have the money to upgrade my CPU so I want to overclock for now. All I want is to get a decent/stable 3.2GHz with air cooling. Here is some spec information if needed: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.4GHz Memory: DDR2 8192 MBytes Dual Channel # DRAM FREQ 333.3 MHZ FSB RAM 4:5 Nothing has been changed to overclock so all the information above is what came from CPUZ. Thanks!!

Thanks!! hi, do you have a stock Intel cooler on or somthing different? I think the stock cooler can do an overclock to 3.0ghz. you may need a better cooler to overclock beyond that. | Report abuse jsc CPUs Master Overclocking Master May 27, 2011 1:27:09 PM Yes. The stock cooler is good for 3.0 GHz. The key to this is that you can usually reach 3.0 GHz with little or no increase in core voltage. You can reach 3.3 GHz (367 MHz X 9) with a mediocre cooler such as the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro, but for that price, you can get a Hiper 212+ if it will fit in your case. Your basic clock settings for 3.3 GHz should be: FSB freq - 367 MHz FSB clock - 1467 MHz Mem clock - 733 MHz Adjust your RAM settings so you are running a 1:1 ratio. Run your internal multiplier to X 9. Don't worry about overclocking your RAM. Core2 systems gain little, if any, extra performance. And the loss in stability can hurt. Keep your core voltage under 1.5 volts and your load temps under 70 C. | Report abuse Chriger June 4, 2011 9:39:20 PM Thanks very much!
