    Default Overclocking EP45-UD3P and Q6600 G0

    Recently put this system together with the following components:
    EP45-UD3P Rev 1.1
    Q6600 G0 w/Thermalright SI-128 and 79 CFM fan
    Mushkin Redline 2x2G PC2-8000 996593
    Sapphire HD 4870 1GB Toxic Edition
    Corsair 750TX

    I've been through many threads here trying to work out the optimum settings, but just can't seem to get it quite right. Here are my stable settings for 3.2 GHZ:

    I'd like to get a little more, maybe up to 3.6 GHZ. CPU temps are good staying below 65C when stressing with OCCT. I've tried setting Advanced Timing Control settings for the ram, but am not having much luck. Also tried increasing vcore with no luck. Below is Memset, if that helps (don't know why it show ram as DDR3). Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Have you tried 2.4 multiplier clocking up in easy stages or even 2:00b or 2:00D with 8x on the cpu?
    I assume youre testing with the case side off,or even with mbrd out of the case?.
    Its just when u get your desired speed and pop the cover back on + with summer coming oat and temps inside may go up a little.
    Id go ahead n link my settings but im sure theres better answers from people who actually run that cpu.
    Current Systems:

    Asrock p67 Extreme6.............. Gigabyte EP-45 UD3 ...................... Gigabyte 73 PVM S2
    Intel i5 2500k 4.8ghz................ Intel Q8400 3.8ghz......................... Intel D820 2.8ghz
    Zalman 10x cooler.................... Coolermaster V8............................ HP cooler
    8GB Gskill ripjaw ddr3.............. 4GB Gskill PI ddr2.......................... 4GB samsung ddr2
    60GB ssd/500GB HDD .............. WD 1TB hdd.................................... Seagate 160GB hdd
    GTX 460 1GB x2 SLI ................. Msi 9600GT 512MB(died) ........... Onboard gx
    Win7 64 ,750w psu(ocz)............ Win7 64 ,520w psu,seasonic...... Win XP pro ,400w psu

    HEC 6A34 case . ....................... Jeantec R2 case............................ Packard Bell case

    hoping to upgrade to http://www.thinkgeek.com/stuff/41/habicase.shtml

    No, but I'll give that a try.

    I'm using original CM Stacker case with crossflow fan, good airflow. Using Coretemp for cpu temps.

    Thanks fatguy1992. Those settings will boot in to Windows, but aren't passing stress testing. It's a start though. I'm still working on it.

    Do you need some more help? If you do, please post me the full settings you are trying now that fail and I will advise you back some things to try next.

    And please do let us know, what tests you are failing and how

    Thanks for the offer of help, Lsdmeasap. I've been out of town and couldn't get back to this. I'm going to be away from the computer for 6 months now, so I'll have to get back to this later.

    Thanks again.

    Ahh ok, Well I wish you well in whatever you have to go do!

    Away from PC for 6 months, I couldn't do it

    Come back anytime you need some help with things and we will try to help

    I'm having trouble OC'ing my EP45-UD3P with Q6600 G0, 8 GB OCZ Flex II PC-9200 (1200 MHZ @ 2.2V), I got a custom heatsink with Shin-etsu paste.

    I have tried the settings as follows.

    But my temperatures were hitting 85 C, which I consider a danger zone. Any suggestions?

    What coller do you have, under what load and ambiant temperature you had those temps?
    Maybe you don't need all that vcore, what is your CPU VID?
