    q6600 OC on an EVGA nforce 780i mobo

    Hi, I have a problem here, I am not sure if it's the processor or the motherboard. I am trying to OC my q6600 a little bit, But after going into the bios (and I DID update the bios to the latest version), It only lets me adjust my Multiplyer, which only goes up to 9x. The FSB is completely locked out. Do I have to disable something in order to allow me to have permission to Change the fsb on my cpu? or is this q6600 COMPLETELY locked? Please help. Thank you.

    I assume that somewhere in BIOS you have to set something to "manual". I've tried to download the manual to check, but currently the download doesn't seem to work for me.

    The CPU fsb is not locked at all, but the multiplier is locked into the range of 6-9 inclusive.


    Edit: I've found a thread on this elsewhere, and it seems to you need to go into Advanced Chipset Featurers and it looks like then into FSB and Memory Config. Is it that you can't find the settings, or that they are greyed out?

    I believe the setting is "Manual" to 'ungrey' the areas you want.

    duddy, have the same setup. I'll check when I get home. Have my G0 Q6600 up to 3.6.

    Ok,
    Go into Advanced Chipset Features, FSB & Memory Config,

    Set FSB - Memory Clock Mode to Unlinked

    Then slowly raise the FSB frequency from this menu.

    I have not updated the bios, but my bios version is 2.053B1.

    To be honest I was a little confused as to the placement of the FSB speed adjustment myself. I though it would have been in the CPU configuration.
