Need Help Overclocking Q6600 On Ga-965p-ds3 (rev 3.3)

Recommended Posts

I have just installed a nice new Q6600, Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 and 2gb Patriot 800Mhz DDR2 to go with my 8800 GTS 320mb.

I'm having some problems overclocking it though.

I have it set on the default settings (266x9 / 266x6 idle [speedStep])

I read This article on how fast a Q6600 can go. I know my rig isn't as powerfull as that, so I tried upping the voltage to 1.4 and the FSB clock to 300 (2.7gb) but once I saved, the PC went into a loop. It powered on, then off, then on, then off, then the failsafe kicked in and it reset everything back to normal.

Has anyone got any tips?

I've not overclocked since I had my old Single core AMD a few years ago, and I've not used Intel since it was like installing a SNES game xD
