Help me overclock my E6600 with TWIN2X2048-8500C5


Recommended Posts

I have a bfg 680i sli board, bfg 8800gtx card and corsair xms2 Twin2X2048-8500c5 memory

I am to confused on the setings for the memory and cpu . Here are a couple of pics of the different options that are in the bios. What should i have the memory set to if i have the cpu set at..... and so on. I would like it to run stable at 3.2 which i have read is not a problem but i am not able to get it quite there yet. Any hints or tips are very welcome. Oh, i am runnig stock cooling still.

Download Memtest86+ V2.01 from--->Here

Download CPU-z from Here


Enter your System BIOS Setup Utility, load default settings, save default settings and set to these values:

[b]System Clocks[/b]

SLI-Ready Memory = Disable
CPU Freq. MHz = 355
CPU Muliplier = 9
FSB - Memory Clock Mode = Unlinked
FSB (QDR), MHz = 1420
MEM (DDR), MHz = 1066

PCIEX16_1 Frequency (Mhz) = 101
PCIEX16_2 Frequency (Mhz) = 101
PCIEX16_3 Frequency (Mhz) = 101
SPP<->MCP Ref Clock, Mhz =: 201

HT Multiplier

nForce SPB --> nForce MCP = 5X
nForce SPP <-- nForce MCP = 5X

HTT Spread Spectrum = Disabled 
PCIe Spread Spectrum (SPP) = Disabled
PCIe Spread Spectrum (MCP) = Disabled
SATA Spread Spectrum = Disabled

[b]Memory Timing Setting[/b]

tCL (Cas Latency) = 5
tRCD = 5
tRP = 5
tRAS = 15
Command Per Clock (CMD) = 2T

[b]Advanced Memory Settings[/b]

tRRD = Auto
tRC = Auto
tWR = Auto
tWTR = Auto
tREF = Auto 

CPU Internal Thermal Control: Enabled
Limit CPUID MaxVal: Enabled
Enhanced C1 (C1E): Disabled
Execute Disable Bit: Enabled
Virtualization Technology: Enabled
Enhanced Intel Speedstep Tech: Disabled


CPU Core = Auto
CPU FSB = Auto
Memory = 2.2v (for version 1.xx) or 2.1 (for version 2.xx)
nForce SPP = Auto
nForce MCP = 1.45v
HT Nforce SPP <-> MCP = 1.55v 


This should give you 3.2Ghz and 1066Mhz on the DRAM. Run Memtest for two full passes. When assured of stable DRAM, then enter Windows and Run Prime95 for ~2 hours.
