If i overclock my cpu and ram i will get more fps in gaming?

q6600 G0 (9x266) 2400@3200 (6x400)

Ram Kyngston HypeX 800mhz 5-5-5-15@960mhz 5-5-5-15

OR

hi there.....

are you getting poor performance currently..??


you'll see more of an FPS boost OCing the CPU rather than the GPU, i personally try to steer clear of OCing GFX cards.....they're built with very tight tolerances, & a few extra mhz will usually amount to a lot of heat with the reference cooler.

but there's nothing stopping you trying, the 4890 has been seen to OC pretty well.

you should be good for 3.6ghz with your H/W

depending on your Q6600 and what type of CPU cooler you have. 3.6 is possible. but any bought in the last year Q6600's seem to be poor overclockers..

get a program called Core Temp and tell me what is says under VID for your chip. also is it a B3 or a G0 stepping?

3.2 or 3.4 Ghz should be doable and you need a aftermarket cpu cooler. This will help in games that are more CPU dependant.

also your 4890 will perform better with a faster processor, the slow CPU speed is probably limiting the GPU as of now. even just going to 3.0 Ghz would help and probably be enough

Which voltages are right/better? for...
@3.0=?
@3.2=?
@3.4=?
@3.6=?

Hey XGUNTHERC.
I was looking through your System Specs and noticed your sweet O/C on that 750i chipset.

Im hoping you can help me figure out how to get my Q9400 up to 3Ghz or maybe a little higher.
I've done some research on it and found that the 750i can be a pain to overclock.

Im wondering if your EVGA bios made it easier to overclock or am i able to use your settings on my XFX board.

any info will be greatly appreciated

Thanks

I did some quick Google searching for your relative Motherboard + Processor combo and came up with this quote:

Quote:
I'm at an easy 3GHz (9x333) @ 1.2625v (yet to test lower voltage. The DS4 runs the Q6600 fine at 3.6GHz @ around 1.46 to 1.475v and all other overvolts on normal. Am running 3GHz and going to optimize my DDR timings now. By the way 3GHz is 10hrs Prime95 stable. My DQ6 was having trouble attaining 9x333, but that may have been caused by my approach to the overclock on that board.
Quote:
Simple version:

Go into your BIOS, go to MIT, enable the bus speed, then change the number from 266MHz to 400Mhz. Then change the CPU multiplier down from 9 to 8. After that go to the voltages and change it to Manual. Once there change the CPU voltage to 1.35. In that same menu change the RAM multiplier from Auto to 2.5

Then go out of MIT and go to the PC Health and disable all fan control, and put the CPU warning tempurature at 65c. Proceed to Advanced chipset (I think it is) and disable all the options that you don't need, such as virtualization technology, C1E, Speed step, as all of these things will limit the overclockablity.


And that's pretty much it, your CPU should be fully functional at 3.6GHz.

Download Prime95 v256 and run a torture test over night with small ftts.




Between those two posts, it should get you your clock speeds and voltage requirements - adjust as necessary.. 3.6 is quite common on air cooling for the q6600.

Hello, community. I have a problem with my Hyper X module 4GB/2 in a DP965LT [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]Intel[/COLOR][/COLOR] Motherboard with windows 7 64bits installed. The problem I'm having is that anytime I have the hyper x placed in the motherboard, it gets really slow and the system takes a long time to start-up. I though it was the memory the first time, so I got new ones and installed again, and again the same problem. However, this problem did not occurred when I had install a normal DDR2 memory of two gigs. When I have [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]win [COLOR=blue !important]XP[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] installed with the hyper X, I did not have any trouble. Have you heard about this issue? any comments or help you can bring me?
I will appreciatte it

'Overclock'?
I was running a stress test with Prime95 when I saw my CPU frequency jump to 3.6Ghz! I've never overclocked before nor run a stress test and naturally was suprised to see this happen. Was this just some glitch to do with CPU-Z or did my CPU actually speed up?
