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.

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.

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.

Raising stock processor speed.

Sorry my friend but Dell doesn't support overclocking.You need a new motherboard and power supply and a better cpu heatsink to overclock your Dell. You would need extra fans too. They lock there BIOS settings as far as 1:1 clocking to prevent troubleshooting issues and they want you to buy something faster if you want something faster. I don't know how old your machine is but any attempt at overclocking would also void the warranty. They even recommend using just one brand of memory even though there are many that would work.
