    Smile GA-EP45-UD3R / E6600 - just an estimation.

    Hello there ,

    Currently have E6600(B2)/975X/4GB and I m struggling for 3.0 Ghz (with many volts on MCH :( )
    due to 2x2GB Adata 1066 and the 975X chipset that is very tight.


    with P45 (decided on Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R)

    what can I expect for overclocking with the E6600 and 24/7.
    untill I manage to get a 45nm cpu?

    I m using Ultra 120 Extreme..

    I know its depends on many things, but just an estimation...

    3,3 - 3,4 - 3,5 ? with

    3,3+ 24/7 its nice for me.


    Thanks in advance.


    Edit:

    So.....I saw this http://forums.tweaktown.com/260282-post4.html

    this user (with 4X1GB) says that is ok at 3.0 Ghz with

    with little more tweaking such as

    MCH Core 1.100V -----> 1.25, 1.30
    MCH Reference 0.760V -----> 0.800V ( with I think this ref is more stable for 65nm)

    I could manage to have the E6600 ~ 3,3 ghz or little more

    what do you think?

    No reason why not on the 3Ghz from the post u linked.

    UD3 seems v good,I had been thinking of an Asus at a similar price,but from the low amount of posts ive seen with people clocking Q8200 on them ,Im glad I got the UD3.
    (nb if Gigabyte wants to send me some free product samples for good sucking up,that will be np).

    What do E6600's clock to for a good normal overclock?
    As long as your memory.cooling and psu are ok :
    If it was me,id expect to be able to get whatever the usual best 24/7 e6600 is ,if someone gave me a chip sample and I could be bothered to unbolt my cpu heatsink.
    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

    I would expect, if your chip is a good one, maybe 3.5-3.8 depending on how many volts you find acceptable

    3.3-3.4 for 24/7 use would be easy for sure, and would not need so much volts.

    Nice thing you will find in your new setup is that you will be able to easily save a few BIOS profiles so you can switch back and forth anytime you like. So you know, on the MAIN Page of the BIOS F11 is Save, and F12 is load.

    Good luck setting things up!!

    So you know, you have a HUGE BIOS coming at you compared to what you had previously, so post back anytime if you need some assistance with things

    WoW such fast replies, things turn out very good, so eventually tomorow I ll have the board....


    cause I was thinking about AMD x3 720 and GA-MA790FXT-UD5P
    to change totally the platform....

    now with E6600@3.4 is ok until I get a Q9550...
    lets hope that the Q9550 will not let me down (in the future when multi threaded application will be more evident) and fall behind
    the AMD x3 720....

    3,8 ?? with E6600 (B2) ? and 4GB 1066? not (G0) G0 is only for Q6600.....That is very promising !!!

    3.3-3.4 for 24/7 use would be easy for sure, and would not need so much volts.
    3,4 (24/7) from 2,6 that I am with the 975X is OK for me...

    Perfect.

    A big BIG THANK YOU.
