It is probably the most oc'ed part in the world, but i still need help!! I tried googling to full extent of my patience. tried many combinations that i can think off too.
here s my specs: Q6600 G0
revision, kingston 2x2 gb of 1066mhz
rams running dual channel on gigabyte EP43 S3L
mobo. psu is OCZ 500 Watts
stock frequency for the cpu is 266. i can get that up to 299 with no problem. anything more than that and system doesnt boot (or receive FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4 Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file. in prime95).
tried adding some voltage, (when fsb over and/or below that 299), never managed to get a bootup.
i started to think that my cpu is the blackest sheep of its kind
the most unoverclockable of all. the cursed one.
Oh, and i tried gigabyte s special C.I.A2 (auto overclocker) settings, the full thrust never boots, turbo freezes whilst loading windows, racing freezes whilst testing at full load, anything below that seems to run ok. (as it is told in the manual, racing gives a 9-11% boost to frequency)
thanks and respect to anyone and everyone who has taken the effort to read this rather long post!
