Overclocking past 2.7GHz with Q6600 GO step

I had a dualcore installed and was able to overclock to 3.2ghz no problem. I installed a Q6600 and I can not increase the FSB over 1199, 2.7ghz... When i do i get an unknown bios error and if I resume and try to boot into windows i get an ACPI compliant error and windows halts... My bios menus are slighty different than in the online manual for N68S7AA... I thought it might have to do with all of the intell speed step stuff and the C1E halt stuff... No matter how i change my settings in bios, it doesn't work... up to 1199 fsb, it works, but 1200 or up bios error every time... I know it is not a voltage problem, or ram problem, but i can't figure it out... When booting fsb 1199 or under, the boot screen shows the speed of the processor and continues normally... When booting fsb 1200 or up it never shows the process type or speed on boot screen, it skips past that part and then soon gives unkown bios error...

    I do have all the current bios update from foxconn... This is their enthusiast board and i am barely overclocking it at all... It should overclock easy to 3.8GHz... This motherboard has nice big heat sinks and fans on the chipsets... It runs really cool... I have a huge Zalmon heat sink on cpu that keeps it cool... Huge thermaltake armor case with tons of fans and air flow... This rig is made to overclock and because of some technical reason or setting it is not working... I have read about similar problems people having but can find no solution that works...

Please check BIOS update from mainboard manufacturer website it there has a solution for overclocking and others. Else don't push your motherboard so hard, you might get extraneous problem.

Overclocking failure!!!


Pull your cooler off the processor and clean off the thermal paste and reapply. Seriously think about putting some bucks into a better way of cooling that monster if you are going to be overclocking. 185 degrees is pretty warm, you probably just baked the thermal paste, replacing it will get the cooling effects back in place.

I have a intel dg31pr motherboard with e7200 processor.i want to overclock it.plz help me............


Overclocking is something you should only do if you are fairly experienced with computers. Most motherboards that overclock are made for overclocking as are the processors used. Good overclocking requires a balance of increased FSB, multiplier, increased voltage to the ram and sometimes the processor as well, and excellent cooling. It is easy to burn out your system by overclocking. There are many things you should know first. For that reasion alone it is impossible for me to tell you how to overclock it.

But, go to www.extremeoverclocking.com. This is a site made for people who want to overclock. Read and browse through the forums. You will also find some excellent by the numbers guides there. Sigh up and jump in. When you perform your first overclock, come back and tell me. I've been overclocking since 2002.

Overclocking


Overclocking is set from the BIOS configuration. Not all BIOS allows overclocking, it may need a BIOS upgrade.
Check the ASUS WEB site for your model motherboard.
Overclocking the CPU (ie running at a higher clock speed) and increasing Frontside bus speed will give better performance BUT there is a downside too, if you overclock too high you could overheat the CPU and it could fail.

a quad Q6600 is manufactured @ .273 overclocked from the factory. at no time should this cpu ever be overclocked anymore unlessd you are using a watercooling system that keeps the cpu @ 69 degrees for stability. anything else will burn it out. lala linda

Quad core support


The Q6600 is a monster chip (I have one), and I've never seen a socket 775 cpu not work, in a socket 775 motherboard, so I'd have an educated guess to say that yes, it would work.

However, the Q6600 can handle 3.6GHz with ease, and this motherboard seems quite low-spec for this class of component. I'd consider a new ASUS board, with a nice built in wifi connecting, PCI Express 2.0 support also.

You could then overclock to your hearts content then.

Regards,

Erik.

Overclocking my Intel Q6600 CPU on my ASUS Maximus Formula?


Q6600 can overclock reaching 4GHz on water cooling. but be careful though always watch your processor's temperature keep it as low as possible and if it overheats try lowering the processor speed and voltage.

Overclocking failed


Lower you CPU clock rate to normal.

Oerclocking can cause internal components to overheat and fail.

Just hope nothing is permanently damaged...

Note; Ensure you system is VERY clean as this will aid to disapate any heat generated by overclocking.

Overclocking failed


Hi, If you have overclocked: 1. CPU or motherboard not up to it - run at default speed; or 2. Memory - try using other memory; or 3. Video Card - see if you can run the Video card at default speed and not with overclock speed; or 4. You may need to up the CPU B+ a bit. If not overclocked: a. Set BIOS/CMOS to default settings; or b. Disable any overclocking feature (even if not used); or c. Lower you CAS latency. Hope this be of some help/idea. ood luck and kind regards.
