Default Dfi P965-S Dark and Q6600 Overclocking

If anyone has a Q6600 along with this board please post your overclock results and the settings that you used...

I just got my 'GO' and anything above stock just doesnt work.

I have newest bios and Coolermaster GeminII with 2 x 120mm 125CFM Fans, so cooling is not a problem, I have tried everything from Stock volts to 1.5V no luck.

Did you do a full bios reset?

I found the "Dark" board didn't particularly like having the cheeze moved, so it probably will need to start from scratch.

Haven't picked up a quad yet, so I can't help you with regards to settings, but you might want to have a look here Intel Chipset-Intel CPU - DFI Club Global Support Forum .

Just a heads up though if you aren't already familiar with the rules over at DFI-Club.... they're pretty anal about things like sigs and including your geographical location in your user profile.

Let us know how you make out.... never know, there might be a quad core in my near future and I'd be able to use whatever you find out. :)

Just a quick suggestion..... seems to me that the GTL+ Driving strength was a critical setting specifically for quads. Might want to muck around a bit with it. (only three settings so it shouldn't be a duanting task.... :) ).
