Q6600 Overclocking! Please help!

Hello,

I'm kinda tired of my q6600 performance and i tried to overclock it, everything is fine until i get over 2.71ghz, after that the pc wont post until i clear cmos, i saw on internet that voltage might be the problem and then i went to my bios and saw that there is no cpu voltage option.

CPU: Q6600
MB : Asus P5P41L TE

Below are some images of my bios page:

  1. that looks like a G41 chipset mobo. No g41 chipset mobo were designed with OC in mind.

    I am afraid your overclocking options are going to be very limited...

    It does apparently support memory OC, which will help your q6600, since it is bandwidth starved.
  2. you could try leaving the Ai overclocking to Auto instead, and allow the mobo to adjust voltages.
  3. thanks for quick reply, my auto overclocking presets are limited, i can only overclock to 20% and nothing more, no way i can over 3.0ghz

    P.S. my MB was P5P41T LE sorry does that makes a difference?

    I gathered from your initial post that there was a typo in the model number. I downloaded that mobo's manual, and it clearly has BIOS options listed and you do not have manual control over CPU voltage. I suspect it is due to the VRM design on the board, which seems weak on this board, so ASUS limited the voltage options so as to not damage the board or CPU.

    20% OC is about 2.88, close to 3 ghz anyway.
  5. ok thank you very much
