First rule of the forums- read the stickies. The 'READ THIS FIRST' sticky has all these rules.
Second rule of the forums- read and search other threads. There have been a LOT of this exact question asked in the past 2 weeks- I have commented on about 5-6.
Don't expect someone to just feed you answers- no chip clocks the same, and hardware as well as trial and error are the real keys to a successful overclock. Google is your friend- don't be afraid to search for answers. The best thing you can ever do for yourself is learn.
lol no im aware that the q6600 ic o/cable my prob is that i dont know if my mobo supports it. I have looked on google and the forum and the p5kpl is doable im just not sure if mine is different as its a p5kplam-epu.
I would just like to say I did research and found straight away that Q6600 can be overclocked quite significantly.
After further tedious searches I dug out my manual (took a while lol) found that my mobo p5kpl-am epu can be used to get into bios and change settings, has an AI overclock feature that can be changed to manual
Only have a few questions hopefully you dont mind helping.
Ive read a few times that the stock heat sink will allow you to get to 2.8ghz safely, is this right? its 2 years old now and im going to give it to my brother ordered my new system yesterday. as such would rather not spend money on am coolers but dont mind too much as there cheap enough so is thermal paste.
