    Default Check/tweak my EP45-UDP3 Q6600 3.6Ghz Overclock settings

    I have a stable 3.6Ghz Q6600 OC.

    Is there anything in there that I should change?

    Also,
    I'd like to get to 3.7Ghz or 3.8Ghz......
    when I upped my FSB to reach 3.7Ghz my system rebooted about 3 minutes into OCCT.
    Any suggestions on settings changes to reach a stable 3.7 or 3.8?

    My Ram is DDR2 800 currently OC'd to 900....do I need faster ram to reach 3.7/3.8?
    If so....which ram would you recommend?

    You should lower that CPU Termination voltage. I only needed about 1.3v for a 450FSB and lower the PLL to 1.57v. Also have you tried lower Vcore?

    I'll try those CPU Term and PLL settings.

    My VID is 1.3125
    It pretty much needs 1.5 vcore to run stable at 3.6Ghz
    I can run 3.2Ghz at stock 1.3125V (1.28 in CPUZ)....but for 3.6Ghz this chip needs 1.5V

    Ok, what cooler are you using and what are your idle/load temps like?

    Thanks

    BTW I forgot to mention, try running a static read value of 8 or 9.

    Currently running a Arctic Freezer Pro 7.
    Idle temps are 37/32 and load temps are at around 67.

    I ordered a Megahalem that should be here tomorrow to help lower load temps.

    Static Read 8 would not boot.

    PLL to 1.57v and Static Read 9 seem to be working fine.
    Ran quick OCCT, played some COD:WaW while ripping a blu ray and no lockups, reboots or blu screens.

    Ok, thats good. Do u need to run ICH voltage @ 1.3v? I'v never had to boost it before, even for 4.5GHz.

    I'll try a lower ICH core voltage later after dinner, thanks.

    I got up to 3.7 stable. Using the same settings as my last settings post all I did was change the multi to 9x and the CPU Host Frequency to 412.

    I'm going to install my Megahalem later today and let that settle in for a few days and then go for 3.8.
