Re: QX6700 oc'ing help
You should be able to get a lot more out of it.. Raid the FSB to 1110, 1120, 1130 and so on until it becomes unstable. Also, what RAM do you have?
Your motherboard should be able to get up around 1800 or higher FSB, unless it's your RAM holding you back.
doh: I see it in your sig. Yeah, you definatly should be able to get tons more out of it. Your RAM is only running at 275MHz, where as it's rated for 400MHz. Drop your multiplier down, and increase your FSB until it becomes unstable. At that point, raise the vDIMM. If that doesn't solve the problem, then lower the vDIMM back down, and raise your NB's voltage a tad.
After that, then play with the CPU.
