I am trying for a while overclock my Q6600@2.4Ghz for bottleneck reasons and every time I change anything in AI tweaker (Multi,FSB,...)I will get overclocking failed error.Everything i can do is press F1 to load default values.Can somebody help me with this how to solve this problem and overclock it propertly?
Thanks

  1. Are you increasing the vCore (CPU voltage), try the FSB at 333 and set the vCore to 1.34 and see if it boots

    No.I am still getting same error.I can't change any value in AI Tweaker because after save and boot i will get overclocking failed error.Does my motherboard has something like protection or save values which i need to disable befor overclocking?

  3. If the OC fails it goes back to defaults and you have to start over, can try the above and also add0.10 to the NB voltage

    Thank you for replying, but if I increase any of these values like FSB,Voltage...I will get this error.What I am doing wrong?Should I change something else than only FSB vCore and NB voltage?For example ram timing and other settings?

    I watched youtube vids and copied exactly what others have done to a tee with no luck. I then updated my BIOS and got a few programs. I have a p5k-e intel core 2 quad q6600 and found my multiplier was 9 not 8 which allowed me to keep my numbers much lower. At first i was using 8 as a multiplier so in order to get to 3.2 i had it at 400 and my voltages were also high which had my cpu running at 64-79° (not cool) so by finding out my multiplier is 9 im currently running my FSB freq. At 355 to get 3.2GHz at 37°_50°. And I paid 150 for this pc and put in a 750ti. Im playing any game i want (not maxed out) but still looks great and run at 80fps.
