I've just upgraded the processor on my machine from a core 2 duo E2200 to a core 2 quad Q6600 off ebay.
In my rig I've got 4Gb (2x2Gb) kingston hyperx 1066 ddr2 which i had set up with my e2200 @1066mhz, overclocking the cpu to 2.92ghz i know but ran without any problems.
This morning I installed the Q6600 into my Foxconn G31mx motherboard. After a bios reset I booted it up and the bios recognised the processor straight away as a Q6600 running at 266mhz (1066) however I cannot get my HyperX to run at 1066 any more! The max I can get is 800mhz and by using the manual setting of 5-5-5-15 still only recognise it as 800?!?
Can some please give me a few pointers please to get the best out of my machine?
I'm not really into gaming at all, I mainly use my machine as a media centre (xbmc) on my hdmi connected TV and on my monitor i mainly use it for photoshop and web design as well as browsing etc.
