Recommended Posts

I'm new to overclocking and don't know where to start

I'm trying to overclock my Q6600 Quad Core

My computer specs are:

-Q6600 2.4 Ghz

-4Gs Strontium 800Mhz

-Corsair VX550W

-ASUS P5KPL/1600

-Gigabyte 9600GT

-Thermaltake V9

 

Can my setup be overclocked? If so a basic introduction to overclocking

Any help is appreciated

Thanks

Nope just a Intel Stock cooler

But i can buy a new one, I'm not looking to overclock right away

what i need to know is basic walk through the overclocking faq has been no help

i will tell what to do , but do not do it till you get a good after market cooler

 

when you go to bios , look for frequency and voltage control option ,

push ( enter ) ,when you are in , look for FSB ( front side bus ) or system bus

increase it step by step like for EX if it was 200 then make it 205 and then go to os ( windows) monitor the temps and see if it is stable at that clock using game or program , then increase it again 210 and the same steps as before , but when it is not stable give it some voltage

you will find it in the same option as the FSB but increase it carefully if it was 1.325v make it 1.340 or whatever but very small increase

and do the same steps temps , stability ..etc that is all , with the stock cooler do not do any thing till you get the after market one look for cooler master hyper 212 or tx3 they are under 30$ ( as i remember )

 

Good luck.........:)

Can you restate this I've read it several times and don't understand

Is it:

"What I need to know is a basic walk-through. [For me] the overclocking faq [in the forums?] has been of no help." ?

 

These should help:

What i meant to say is

I wish to receive from you a basic walk-through of overclocking, the overclocking FAQ in the forums was no help as it is quite confusing but i shall check again regardless

and thank you to all of you who have welcomed me
