P5Q Pro and stuff
 
Helllo..

Just got my new system to get me through some of my time at uni! Very exciting!

Just a few questions, a lots changed since my last system.

Only one question really, overclocking my Q6600?

What CPU Voltages would i be looking at? or should be looking at?

Whadahecks CPU PLL (yeh i know coulda googled, but theres you guys!)

What NB Volatage should i be looking at?

As the title suggests my motherboard is the ASUS P5Q Pro, with the following:

Intel Q6600 G0 Stepping one..

OCZ 2x 1gb DDR2 800 Cl4 at 2.1v

WD Harddrvie

Sapphire ATI Radeon4850

AND the rest later in my sig.

Looking forward to overcloking this THING!

Cheers =D !

FSB @ 333, and, according to some research, voltage doesn't really need to be higher than 1.368v. =)

Abdul 7th August, 2008 07:03 PM

Not Asking You! =)

Your questions were addressed to the AOA community. I am, believe it or not, part of aforementioned community.

If you want help, try and accept it when it's given, instead of being picky about who you take it off. :)

Abdul 7th August, 2008 07:32 PM

My apologies. xD

MUff1N 8th August, 2008 02:23 AM

It's always a good policy when asking for help to not be insulting to those that offer it.
Btw, the person that answered your question is one of the more "Knowledgeable" members of the AOA Community & has been here since 2005... :rolleyes:

Just hang out for a few days and you'll have all kinds of GOOD useful information to go off of...
When I first came here to *Cough* showoff some of my overclocking results I soon found out in short order I was going about it all the wrong way and learned a LOT
from everyone here that helped me to get better results with my overclocking.
You can get very good results with the least amount of voltage with the right settings. ;)

What are your settings like at the moment?

hehe, sorry just been a little busy. :crazy:

Got to 3.2Ghz, but anything over this seems to be unstable? maybe missing something?? p95 unstable.

Current settings 400FSB x 8
FSB Strap Auto
DDR800 4-4-4-12 2.1v (The timings are stock ones for the RAM)

Cpu at 1.36825v (Max load p95 13h - 58, 58, 55, 56 )

1.35v got an error on Core 3

1.4v NB

LLC on

CPU PLL Auto

CPU GTL Auto

What to do next? :D

Abdul 10th August, 2008 11:53 AM

3.3Ghz , 1.38125v errored :boxing:

Should i go higher?

MUff1N 10th August, 2008 02:06 PM

Dude, just wait for ccp or someone that has worked with this CPU & Asus boards to come along and help you with your bios settings.
Otherwise you'll be beating your head against the wall for hours getting frustrated with errors. :banghead:
Why do this when someone else has already done this for you? ;)

It takes a little finesse to get high FSB with a quad. I'll try to get you going in the right direction.

The Q6600 will pretty much need 1.38 - 1.4 volts to get past 3.4 on the 9 multi, and will take a little more if you are trying to push the FSB on a lower multi. He's not totally out of range.

CPU PLL should just be left at 1.5v, the most important settings are going to be vtt and GTL's. at 425 and higher Vtt will probably be in the range of 1.3v or higher (stay under 1.45 for the Q6600). For GTL's try 63% core 0/2 and 67% for core 1/3 if that does not work try 67% for both.. The P45 chipset does not need a lot of volts for high FSB. I run 475 FSB with a quad at only 1.22v to the northbridge, too high a voltage on the northbridge can cause instability as well... Northbridge GTL between 61% and 64%

Edit:: Auto settings with memory can often be too loose or too tight, so reading, understanding and optimising these timings can be very benificial to high bus speeds. Too tight causes failures for obvious reasons, but too loose or inconsistent timngs can wreak havoc as well.

1.4v in Bios for CPU doing pretty well. temp <60C (60C is max it goes to)

Gonnna try 3.4Ghz with the settings ya said. :thumbsup:

Board dun seem to have 67x GTL and not for different cores? Just GTL for all 4 cores. have 63x and 65x and 61x?

ccperf721p 11th August, 2008 02:17 AM

65x should work well for your CPU. Experiment with it a little.

I think this is it, 3.4Ghz. :cool:

Would it be safe to stay at this Voltage? 1.4375v? Anything below this me gets an error?

:thumbsup:

MUff1N 11th August, 2008 01:35 PM

As long as you stay within the specs for a processor it will last a long time. :thumbsup:
It's when you go passed the VID Voltage Range that the processor will eventually breakdown regardless of how cool it is from the over-voltage... :rolleyes:
Intel® Core 2 Quad Processor Q6600 - SLACR

Package Type: LGA775
Manufacturing Technology:65 nm
Core Stepping: G0
CPUID String: 06FBh
Thermal Design Power: 95W
Thermal Specification: 71°C
VID Voltage Range: 0.85V – 1.5V

raphael2040 11th August, 2008 01:51 PM

I'm planning on getting a Q6600 soon, with same motherboard as Abdul, but maybe slightly faster RAM.

This thread has been a great help! :thumbsup:

ccperf721p 11th August, 2008 02:52 PM

Can't go wrong with that combination. The P45 chipset is fun to play with, especially with a quad. The best I ever had with a P35 board and a quad was 450FSB, I've hit 475 stable and booted into Windows at 500 on the new Biostar. Going to try to get 4Ghz stable from this Q9450 this weekend..

Abdul 11th August, 2008 02:56 PM

Awesome! im happy with this Overclcock, and that concludes this chapter!

Thnkz ! :thumbsup:
