Default Overclocking with XFX 680i SLI LT

Hi,
Ive got a XFX 680i SLI LT motherboard, a q6600GO cpu and a Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 7.
I'm just starting to dabble with oc'ing my cpu but can't seem to change the CPU fequency multiplyer, it only goes between 6 and 9x. Is this the thing that i should be putting up and down? if so, why doesnt it let me move it above 9x?
Thanks for you help.

as far as i know with a q6600 you cant change the multiplyer its locked in, you can only change the multiplyer on the intel extreme cpu's(qx#### and x#### models)

it goes down to 6 because thats what it goes to in speed step, but you want to turn that off

go here to find out how:

As already stated all CPU's that are not Extreme editions have locked Multis, So you can lower them, but not increase them.

I suggest you read an Overclocking Guides before continueing.
HOWTO: Overclock C2Q (Quads) and C2D (Duals) - A Guide v1.1 - OverclockersClub Forums

Remember to disable in CMOS the following Settings:
Virtualization technology (Unless you need it for a virtual machine/OS)
C1E
CPU TM function(E1ESt Or something to that affect)

check that sticky that I wrote... I think Stalin posted a link to it...

now, Evga 680i LT SLI ---> Evga 680i SLI

try that out, it'll give you more overclocking settings, first try to change the fsb from 266 to 333 increasing it to 3.0ghz

Thats what I was going to say before...but his is xfx not evga, and while i've heard that they're co-compatible, i've never done it and didn't want to recommend it.

I think it still works regardless of the brand
