    With 8GB of memory, you need to keep the memory speed below 1066MHz.
    1066 divided by 425 = 2.50, so you can't use the 2.66 D-memory strap.
    Switch to the 2.40B memory multiplier for 1020MHz, which is what Chike posted earlier for the 425MHz setting.

    results so far. gonna run prime 95 overnight and will let you know the results.

    if this is stable, I think this is how far I will go with the OC.
    So far so good, thanks for all the help guys. very much appreciated

    Thumbs up Re: OC help with Q6600 on UD3R

    Looking good

    If you bought your Dark Knight from Newegg, the mail in rebate submission "must be postmarked no later than 15 days after the promotion ends", that is April 15th.

    Your Gflops scores are where they should be, but the values indicate that Cpu Vcore is probably a bit too low.

    In addition to the Blend/small FFT Prime95 tests that Chike recommended, I would also run the large FFT test to stress your ram for 4 - 6 hours. If you are into gaming, you should also stress your system by doing some extended gaming. Ya, I know, it's a tough job but someone's gotta do it.

    Glad to help out, let us know how your testing turns out.

    You'll need to update your forum signature to 3.40GHz and it might help others if you include the Dark Knight cpu cooler in your sig.

    Cpu Vcore = 1.32500 - 1.33750 should be good.
    If the GFlops scores vary by no more than 0.04 to about 0.06 you should be good.

    Keep in mind that your advanced memory settings = AUTO aren't fully optimized, but applying tighter manual settings means that you have to repeat your stability tests, all of them.
    Optimizing the memory settings will improve overall performance somewhat, but it won't be anywhere near the performance gains you've already achieved. If you're burned out on stress testing, you can always come back to the memory tweaks at a later time.

    Don't forget to save your stable settings as a saved bios profile, you can save up to eight different bios profiles and you can replace any of the saved profiles with a newer profile at any time. You should also keep a hard copy version of all your saved profiles.

    Quit now? No, why? The plan was to reach 3.55GHz (444x8, sorry I didn't tell you hehe)
    At least 3.5GHz (238x8)? Just save a 2.4GHz profile before you continue.
    Voltages are low, VTT still at stock, Vcore is far from limit and core temps are great.

    But first try to lower tRD(Static tReat Value) on both channels, 8 should work, but at least 9, lower memory lantency. This may need bit more MCH Core, mine are stable with 1.16v at 444MHz 4GB DDR-1066. Memory tweaks were delayed for until CPU OC is done.

    With Windows 7 LinX/IBT results are never consistant. For more consistant results you need to run in diagnostic mode which disable most services.

    alright lets give 3.5ghz a try.

    FSB 438MHz, vcore 3-5 clicks up.
    Run memtest86+. When I make such small changes I just let it run till it finish test 5. Or just run test 5 twice (to run specific test, press c, 1, 3, test#, enter, 0).
    Then 5 runs linX/IBT 3072MB, 1-2 hours Prime5 small FFT, then 8+ hours Prime blend.
    Some chips (like mine) need much more vcore as they get near their frequency limit. e.g. my CPU run 3.3GHz at normal vcore but to run at 3.8GHz I need to set 1.3975v in BIOS (1.36v in CPU-Z).
    if it fail try vcore up to 1.4v first, then a click up CPU PLL may help, 1-2 Clicks MCH Core.
    1-4 clicks VTT may be needed, but if this help we can try to tweck CPU/MCH references to set it as low as possible.

    While IBT core temps are under 70 do not fear, 70-75c should not be a problem either for the short test, I leave this for you to decide.
    Max GFlops should be around +1 from current OC.
    If you get a BSOD please post the error code, if prime fail, which FFT size failed.
    If memtest86+ fail, try the MCH Core first, then VTT, if it crash more vcore first.

    Good luck
