Anyone have any experience with this processor/board combo? I have a Q0 stepping Q6600 with a Zalman CNPS9500. Using 4 gigs of Aeneon Xtune DDR2 CL5. Currently stock, running at around 42c idle (says Coretemp)

Any help would be appreciated, first time OCing an Intel. Not looking to go crazy, just get some extra oomph.

Thanks. Amazingly, I'm not the usual forum idiot who just posts and hopes :)

I read through it, and have a decent understanding of the information contained theirin. I'm just having some trouble getting anywhere with this particular setup, as every time I increase the FSB above 1066, the system won't post.

Did you put the RAM on a divider? How are temps? Did you up the voltage?

Set the FSB to 1200, unlinked the ram, set the RAM to 800. I didn't up the voltage

Couldn't check temps as I couldn't boot to windows.

set the fsb to 1333, link the cpu/mem to ratio 3:2

You can either be part of the problem or be part of the solution.

Nope, still won't post. Brand new machine, I've run Prime95/memtest on it to ensure there's no problems. Very odd.

Be sure to either put vcore on Auto or do it manually if it doesn't have enough voltage it will hand in bios or won't post. It could also be your DDR that has a high divider therefore can't handle it.

I'll take a picture of the bios options I have when I get home tonight. I had the vcore on auto, so I don't voltage is it (if anything, vcore set to auto would cause the voltage to be too high, right?)

if you select auto for the vcore, the bios will attempt to read and recognize the cpu and
set the vcore to the manufacurers recommanded default voltage.

the q6600 can go to 3.2ghz without any increase in volt. so auto should be fine till then.
