Q6600 multiplier

Hello people,

I have an old Q6600 which i now use with a new motherboard, an Ashrock G41M-S3 and a pair of corsair Vengeance 2x4g DDR3 1600.

Problem is that cpu is stuck at 1866mhz and multiplier at x7. I was using this cpu for quite some time until my old motherboard retired. the multiplier would go from x7
to x10 when under load.

I tested prime95 but nothing. Multiplier won't move.



Any help would be nice.

  1. If your motherboard supports 1333Mhz FSB, Google "Q6600 BSEL" as it kicks your FSB up from 1066Mhz to 1333Mhz. It's easy to do, doesn't require much work, and doesn't strain the CPU. I've done a ton of these and they run no hotter.

    Well, yours might since you're already OC'ing with multipliers... but this will solve your problem, too.

    I think you should be at 9(266*9) not 10 multi.

    Can you ensure that no power options settings are messed, for the hell of it try Max Performance to see if it helps.

    If not, maybe resetting the bios will help.

    Some CPUs need a bit more voltage for the BSEL mod, but it is GREAT(3ghz for FREE), but if you can adjust the fsb, it does the same thing.
  3. That's a pretty interesting trick and it's quite simple indeed.

    Motherboard supports 1333 fsb !
  4. First get the multi working before messing with it.

    Any luck yet?

  6. Yes, my apologies. Been quite busy and forgot to answer.

    i was going to try the BSEL trick but i first tried changing multiplier through BIOS.

    For some reason this new motherboard underclocked to multiplier 7 but couldn't auto clock to 9 ( which is normal for this cpu).
