I've just run Prime95 for about 8 hours and everything works stable at the following settings:
All other BIOS settings left on Auto.
These settings give the CPU a speed of 3.3GHZ. However, I recently tried to get it to 3.5GHZ at an FSB of 389 and Vcore of 1.40 - and the computer wouldn't boot windows or the BIOS - I had to reset the mobo.
I am slowly trying to get the CPU to 3.5 or 3.6 though (depending on temperatures). What settings do you recommend I go for? I've been getting some advice but I am a bit confused now - unsure which settings to change, I've uploaded 3 pictures that make up the 1 section of my motherboard used for overclocking, if you could help me by pointing up which sections to change and what settings to input in order to reach 3.5-3.6GHZ , that'd be great!
If it helps, my PC specs are:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 G0 CPU
ATI 4870 GPU
ASUS P5Q PRO Motherboard
OCZ DDR2 800MHZ 4GB RAM
Antec 900 Case
Corsair 650W PSU
Scythe Mine CPU Cooler
