Hey guys, this is my spec.

Pentium Dual Core E6600
ASUS P5G41T-M LX
1 x 2GB DDR3 1333Mhz

Whats the maximum stable clock i can attain with this setup?
My current settings are.

CPU Frequency - 333
DRAM Frequency - 1333
Memory Voltage - 1.40000
MB Voltage - Auto
VTT Voltage - Auto
CPU Vcore - +100mv
Auto PSI - Enabled
Multiplier 11.5

Changed settings abit.

CPU Frequency - 333
DRAM Frequency - 1333
Memory Voltage - Auto
MB Voltage - Auto
VTT Voltage - Auto
CPU Vcore - +150mv
Auto PSI - Enabled
Multiplier 11.5.

Did a Prime95 In-place Large FFT and this is what i got.

The G41 is an economy chipset with the FSB limited to about 350 - 360 MHz. That means the upper limit with a late model E6600 (not the earlier 2.4 GHz Conroe) is about 4 Ghz.

I am not familiar with the Asus board, but I do have a Gigabyte G41MT-S2.

Take you memory settings off Auto. Then select a RAM clock multiplier of 4X. If you set the FSB freq to 266 MHz (stock), your memory clock should be 1066 MHz.

CPU-Z should indicate that your system is running at a 1:1 FSB:RAM ratio.

Now start the "increase FSB, test, and increase CPU voltage cycle".

To save time, I would start at a 300 MHz FSB freq. At that point, you shouldn't need to increase CPU voltage. Then start working upward in 10 MHz steps.

You should be able to get up to around 350 - 360 MHz if you have a decent CPU cooler.

Do not exceed 1.45 volts on the CPU cores and keep your load temps under 70 C.

..I have recently purchased a brand new boxed Core 2 Duo E6600 2.40Ghz/1066/4Mb SL9ZL (Package date: 05/15/07), am I amongst the "earlier" Conroe family of Core 2 Duo procesors? - I am currently experimenting problems in slightly overclocking such CPU, but cannot go beyond 2.51Ghz, using a ASUS P5G41T-M LX mobo along side with high performance G.Skill Ripjaws X PC10666 (1333Mhz) RAM. I am currently using my new system with stock defaults, and my RAM "down-clocked" to 1.066Mhz instead of 1.333Mhz.

At some point, I would like to "pump" the processors speed to at least 2.80Ghz (ocasionally), with a 4 phase design mobo with overclocking capabilities to 1.333Mhz MAX (CPU & RAM), and of course, cooled by a Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus and sufficient ventilation in my new Thermaltake mid-tower case, I shouldn't have any problems.

Whats holding me back? - The CPU perhaps, which seems to be "locked" from X6 to X9 (multiplier), according to the mobo's year 2011 BIOS, I wouldn't think the RAM is to blame, baring in mind that it's stock speed is 1.333Mhz, and yet, can be slightly overclocked.

Any suggestions?

you shouldnt need to overclock ram. set the ram no higher than its rated speed. These g41 motherboards are poor overclockers. You really shouldnt waste your time on core 2 duo's now. If buying a new cheaper dual core setup, always go AMD. I got my core 2 duo e6600 over 4 years ago.........

tengo el pentium dual core E6600 CON INTEL G41(tarjeta de video) y lo maximo que pude overckearlo fue 3.84ghz(334mhz) 1333mhz. esa es la configuración mas estable.

mis recursos:

tarjeta madre: foxconn G41MD
proc: intel pentium dual core E 6600 3.06ghz 1066mhz
ram: ddr3: DIMM1: Corsair Value Select VS2GB1333D4 2 GB DDR3-1333 DDR3 SDRAM (9-9-9-24 @ 666 MHz) (8-8-8-22 @ 592 MHz) (7-7-7-19 @ 518 MHz) (6-6-6-16 @ 444 MHz)
