Question overclocking e6600
 
I have an e6600 core 2 duo that I am attempting to overclock modestly to get a little more out of my single core games (TF2). It is sitting in an Intel DG965WH with 2GB DDR2 and an EVGA 8800GT Superclock. Nothing special, but i'm a poor student :(

My problem lies in the fact that I can't find the settings (FSB, cpu voltage, etc.) in the bios. According to all the documentation, they should be there, but they aren't. The whole power and performance command trees as shown in the manual are missing in the bios.

Anyone have any info on this? I've heard of having to "unlock" advanced bios features. Is this my problem?

Well I'm not exactly positive about this so someone else please confirm, but I don't think that the Intel boards are very overclock friendly. There probably aren't any of those settings mainly because Intel didn't want that to occur in the first place.

anyone else?

I understand that the 965 series isn't OC friendly, but it is supposed to be possible.

I see, I can't access that "Burn in mode". I don't see it under my advanced tab. Any thoughts?

You could possible have an older BIOS(?)... there aren't any "advanced settings" tabs to click on anywhere?

The other thing you could do is send that guy a PM and see if he can help...
