    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    i Oc my bros e6300 up to 2.1ghz using a stock cooler and on idle its around 50c and on load the highest i found is 71c.

    are they ok temps for a stock cooler or should they be a lot better?

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    My E6600 is 110% stable at 2.92GHz, but if i stray over that, at ANY Vcore (0.3V more than i had before) and it still isnt stable! I tried taking the speed up to 3.4GHz incase it might be a FSB hole, but it crashes when Orthos starts running...Im wondering whether the CPU FSB needs to be increased from 1.2V... any hints?

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    seemed to have hit a wall after going much over 300 with x10 miltiplier. so ive raised my bus speed to 334x9 with rated fsb of 1336 vcore is still the same 1.3v ram is 1.9v temps are the same as before holding good now i dont wanna go any higher with my core speed which is 3ghz im still on stock cooling but i would like to push my bus speed up to 400 mhz after all im useing pc6400 Effective Clock 667 MHz im going to run tests now to make sure everything holds up any suggestions? whats odd tho is CPU #0 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 4400 @ 2.00GHz, 3340 MHz
    CPU #1 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 4400 @ 2.00GHz, 3340 MHz
    In windows and in everest core speeds show up as 3.3ghz but in cpu-z it shows up as 3ghz?

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    on a stock cooler with just the fsb increased to 300 to make the e6300 go up to 2.2ghz with a load temp of 71c is that good enough on a stock cooler or should it be alot more cooler?

    I think 71c is to damn high!

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    Idiot Question:
    How do i set my ram at 1:1 because in CPU-Z it reads 11:16, i have an E6600 overclocked to
    3.25GHZ with temp around 50?

    Also my Mobo is an EVGA 680i, and my memory is Corsair PC2-8500 1066mhz 2x1GB Dominator

    This guide is for 965 chipsets mate, you need something like this for your board.

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    Clunk, thanks for the guide. Yesterday I recieved delivery of a brand, spanking, shiny new Q6600 (G0) and Asus PK5-E mobo and today decided to search for a newbie's overclocking guide. Voila!, a step-by-step walkthrough with pics. Brilliant. But...

    I'm having problems getting past the initial stages, namely changing the DRAM frequency and FSB. I'm quite prepared to accept blame -- I am, after all, an overclocking virgin.

    To make matters a little bit more confusing I'm using the 0503 bios (necessary for the latest chips, I believe) and the bios screens are different from the ones posted in the tutorial.

    Here's some caps to illustrate.

    EDIT: OK, I can't post any caps until I've made a few more posts. Drat. OK, well, in the meantime, let me explain as best as I can with mere words...

    I was able to change the memory timings as shown at the beginning of the guide. The problem begins after that when you talk about changing the DRAM frequency. Even thought my FSB shows as 266, I can only change my DRAM freq to 667, 800, 889 or 1067.

    I notice too that the FSB setting will not budge (despite the bios information on the right saying it can be changed from anywhere 200 to 800 or thereabouts). No matter if I press Enter or left/right, it won't budge. I get the feeling this is due to the fact I haven't been able to make good with the DRAM bit. But that's just a guess.

    Any clues? Shame I can't post the pictures to show how the different bios screens -- a lot of functions appear to have moved places, been renamed, etc.

    Anyway, thanks for your time in advance.

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    This guide was written for the P5B series of boards which used the 965 chipset, your board is the P5K series which uses the P35 chipset.

    Click the P5K addon guide in my sig.

    This first part of the guide is worth a read before you read the P5K add on, just for general info, all the question you have just asked, are answered in the guides

    The memory frequency (when set to 1:1) will always show double the FSB, so and FSB of 266 will show a DRAM frequency of 533, and 300FSB will show DRAM frequency of 600 and so on.

    To enter the FSB frequency, just highlight it and then type in a number, then press enter - simple as that.

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    I'm about to stick in an Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 @ 3.0 GHz in my rig using an Asus P5N-E nForce 650i SLI Chipset LGA775 motherboard, a Artic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooling Fan, and two extra case fans from my case's built in ones. Also going to be running 2 GBs of RAM, and have an 800w power supply. How much can I expect to overclock my processor (safely). It doesn't *have* to be a major boost; I'd just like to get a much power out of my chip as I (safely!) can.

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    Thanks, Supershanks! I'll be sure to use this when my new rig is complete. Anyone have any tips? I'm new to this, and would hate to burn out my new shiny processor on the first go.

    Also, has anyone else OC'ed this processor with this or a similar motherboard? I'd liek to know ahead of times what kinds of speeds I can expect to see, just out of curiosity to see if the project would be worth the effort (and risk!). lol

    Many thanks, Clunk! Your P5K was perfect for my needs -- I've now got the litter sucker clocked at 3Ghz. No doubt, I'll come back here asking more stupid questions when I decide to go for more but in the meantime, many thanks. You're a scholar and a gentleman.
