I have a new Intel quad-core system Q6000 GO stepping, watercooled. CPU
speed is 2.4 Ghz. I've been able to get the FSB up to 385 MHz x 9
= 3.465 GHz.
But at 390 MHz the FSB eventually causes problems in my
stress test. (My
temperatures are under good control).
I have the CPU voltage control up from stock of 1.30 V to 1.40 volt,
Memory Multiplier at 2.66. (I have 4 Gig of high quality RAM OCZ
FSB OverVoltage control is at +0.10V; G(MCH) OverVoltage at +0.05.
I can get into Windows and run my stress test, sometimes for 20
then Windows shuts down the app. Other times, on moving
the mouse, I get a black
screen and reboot, and so have to go back to
From what I have read, 3.8 GHz CPU speed should be doable, e.g., with a
X multiplier, I should be able to get the FSB up to aobut 422

Re: Overclocking the GA-X38-DQ6 MB
3.8GHz may be doable with a few processors, but not any E6600s or Q6600s on
air or water cooling that I have seen or heard about. My Q6600 G0 will do
3.4GHz on liquid cooling but starts to get flaky at any FSB over 1500 or so.
3.4 is a good OC for the Q6600 G0. Heat isn't the issue for me, my processor
just won't do anymore.
