Default Overclocking what now?

So over the past 2 months I have been learning how to become a god with overclocking the GPU. Thats simple now, but I tried overclocking the CPU and I just honestly dont understand how. I raised the QDR upto 1116 I believe. But in all honesty I've read the forums and I dont know wtf to do! So in all honesty I need help. This Q6600 I have is a POWERHOUSE once it reaches 3.4+ghz. Help me make it their!! Btw I have a coolermaster water cooling set-up so its all cool!! 23 idle 40 load

I have the same problem, only thing is I know how to OC. I can't seem to get my CPU higher than 3GHz. I have an MSI P7N 750i SLi Platinum.

Hit 2.67ghz by just raising the QDR. Will soon raise voltage. I'm kind of getting it now. Thanks all!!

urgh ok heres a news flash. OCing Quads on 780i sucks.


Start by setting your voltages to auto in bios, Raise the FSB to 378 and lets try 3.4GHz. YOu have no form of line dampening on that chipset so your screwed there... up the CPU voltage to 1.40V Core and let the Mobo play with the rest on its own. Make sure your memory is not going past its rated speed set it to ddr2 6400 (800MHz)


If your reboot fails then try a spp of 1.5V and the FSB at 1.5V (both max I believe) If that fails get a real MB

I have line dampening on my 780i. Asus calls it Load Line Calibration, but I don't use it becasue takes away VOffset and VDroop which are there to protect the CPU. You actually thinks it's a good feature? LOL Read this:
