Advice how to overclock Q6600 GA-EP45 DS4P
5/9/08 6:24:49 PM
Hi, I just built a pc for myself and would like a step by step guide on how to overclock the system to 3.0G and for it to remain stable.


Intel CORE 2 Q6600/2.4Ghz/2x4MB/1066FSB/LGA77

Zalman CNPS9500ALED (Copper) CPU Cooler for Intel SK775/478, AMD SKAM2/754/939/940

Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS4P P45+ICH10R DDR2 1200 1600 MHz PCI-E 2.0 SATAII RAID GLAN 1394a 8Ch TPM ATX

Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD4850 512M DDR3 HDMI AVIVO HD PCI-E 2.0

OCZ DDR2 4G(2x2G)PC8500 1066Mhz Platinum(2P10664GK)

Western Digital 640G SATAII 7200 rpm HDD (WD6400AAKS)

NZXT TmpestElite Black case with Blue Led

Antec ATX EarthWatts 500W

I haven't tried overclocking and don't know to much about it so a simple step by step would be great!

Thanks in advance.

You should be able to follow this guide quite closely :-)


I would, however, recommend that, instead of the 2.40B memory multiplier, you use a 3.0 one, as that should allow your memory to operate at 1000MHz :-)

What stepping do you have on your Q6600, I have a B3 and would expect similar temperatures.
