Currently I own a striker II formula and the Q6600, but i also have a brand new p5q-e sitting in its box... I was thinking about buying an E8400....
I have been struggling to overclock my q6600 with my setup, and I understand that the RAM I am running is likely complicating the issue....
I have been off at school, and I reluctantly left my rig at home under the watch of my little brother (big mistake). One night he threw a party...
I REALLY want to put a SSD in my t61, but I've heard that the Sata2 controller is capped at 1.5gb/s (despite it being advertised at 3gb/s)....
half-life was an incredibly polished engine with slick controls and gameplay (except for pushing boxes, wtf?)
F.E.A.R. used shadows, lighting...
dawn of war 2 is a good game. The single player lets you level up your squads and collect l00t (wargear), but the real fun comes from online play....
week 1 when buffalo plays new england is going to be 4 hours of experts jerking off tom brady....... i can't wait until we wipe the floor with him!
so 5 passes is good?
what if i encounter bsod's down the road, what settings should i start messing with?
like now, when i got a bsod...
everything seems to be in order, thanks for the assistance!
how can I run a more intesive test with IntelBurn? or should I look to p95 for that
BSOD when i tried to lower my memory voltage, i guess it stays at 2.2
got it to post and pass intel burn test standard at these settings
FSB : DRAM = 1333:1066
is it even possible for a q6600 to change multiplier vlaues? i though that was the main difference between the Q series quads, and the Qx series quads
it didnt work at 2.2v either
the other voltage options i have are PLL, SB core, 1.2v HT, and bridge core (all set at auto)
there are also...
but the max voltage specified by ocz for my ram is 2.1 (2.15).... or does that value pertain to something else?
yeah multiplier is set at 8x... BUT bios was showing 3.60ghz not 3.20ghz
why isnt it? lol
should i increase voltages or what?>
you sure about the 1:1 ratio? wouldnt 3:2 get my ram running at 1066? (1600:1066)
also, i can't get past my mobo screen (can't POST) at those...
also, what is CPU PLL voltage? should I be touching this?
right now i'm trying to get it running stable at FSB=333
here are my voltages:
cpu v: 1.2875
NB Core: auto
I've been running my q6600 kentsfield at stock speeds for almost a year now, but I think it's time to push it to the limit. As the...
