GA-P35-DQ6 overclock settings
just posting my config here with a Gigabyte GA-P35-DQ6 motherboard
- Processor: E6600 / 2.4Ghz Core Duo.
- Ram: 4x512Mb Crucial Ballistix PC6500 4-4-4-12 @ 2.2v
- Cooling: OCZ Vindicator
- Disks: 74Gb 10k WD Raptor, 500Gb WD SATA 2, 1Tb WD MyBook eSATA.
My current stable overclock settings are as follows:
- FSB 395 Mhz x9
- Memory Multiplier 2.0
- vCore 1.375
- vFSB +.05
- vMCH +.05
- vDimm +.2
- Memory timings: 5-5-5-18-auto-etc.
This results in a very happy 3.554 Ghz currently running @ 59 celsius under max load (orthos). It could go a good bit higher but i don't want to be worrying about overheating problems long term since it is a work PC, and this represents about a 50% overclock which is great.
I haven't tried pushing the memory yet but i'll try out the 4-4-4-12 @ 2.2v next. Some earlier attempts at overclocking were foiled by bad memory settings, it was good advice i read to relax the memory settings before overclocking because it can cause stability problems that are not related to your FSB adjustments etc.
by the way, before i got these settings working, i was getting crazy temps like 79c with hardly any overclocking with this same setup. it all came down to not enough thermal paste.
