    Question What should i set my *Intel QX6700 Core 2 Quad Extreme* Bios settings too?

    I have a shuttle SD39P2, and am using an Intel QX6700 Core 2 Quad Extreme.

    The problem is that my mates have the 2.4Ghz quad core and getting much better benchmarks than my Quad Extreme chip???

    So as i have not pissed about with voltages and settings for the Chip in the BIOS since installing it like 6 months ago...
    i am wondering what settings i need to set the voltage, CPU Clock, CPU Clock ratio ect should be set... In other words I Have no Idea what the settings should be?

    Please can some in lighten me to what settings i should have this chip running at?
    And even better if some one with the same model shuttle (SD39P2) and Chip (QX6700) could tell me what settings they have set?

    Thanks for your time!!!!!!!

    Cheers

    should be something like this where it says clock ratio : x11 etc..

    This won't be your bios but something similar i'm sure.

    Unlocked means unlocked.. that's not right.

    You should be able to set it what you like.

    Just thought i would get back to this as now i am using this chip in a Asus P5Q Deluxe so should now be able to tweak this and getting my moneys worth out of this CPU.

    Any one have the QX6700 Extreme CPU in an Asus P5Q board?

    I could easily get my Q6600 upto around 3GHZ with a slight voltage bump in my SD37P2 V1 so I suspect the much higher TDP of the QX6700 could have caused thermal throttling under heavy load.
