    Cool E-6600 on box cooling?

    Is it posseple to run 3.0 ghz with a E-6600 boxcooler on?
    i just almost did it.
    i used the ASUS AI overclock, and Ntune to fix the memory.
    now i ask, can anyone help me getting over the magic number 3000 Mhz with a box cooler.

    System:
    Motherboard. ASUS p5nSLI
    Memory. No clue.. Sorry. (look at attachments, maby you can tell me.)
    CPU. Core 2 duo E-6600
    CPU cooling. BOX
    Other cooling. 1x 100x100 mm fan near the CPU to pull out hot air.
    PSU. Dunno, too tired to chek, but ill check tomorrow.
    GFX. Gforce 7900GTX a little clocked, standard 650mhz

    i have runned a stress test/benchmark and it was stabil for thoes 20 mins. and played MFS:MW for 2 hours after and no probs. (know its a old game, but i havent got time to get a desent on.. yet)
    the resulution on attachmests is pretty bad, but my monitor is best at that setting, and had to compress a lot to get below 200 kbs.

    hope to hear suggestions soon, and hopefully links to better OC programs.

    Regards.
    Me!

    Stability test:
    Orthos

    Test everyone liks, try superpi 1m test.

    Try BIOS overclocking
    Rig: Intel Pentium E 2140 | Gigabyte 965P-S3 | G.Skill 2GBNT | Sapphire HD2600 XT | Fsp 350-60Gln
    Ppc: Intel XScale 255Mhz | 64Mb Ram | 64Mb Flashdrive | 320x240 QVga | hp1915 | 1Gb Sandisk Storage Card
    Nas: Intel Pentium 3 477Mhz | Epox | 384 Patriot SDRam | nVidia Geforce tnt2 | Boxter 500W
    Else: Viewsonic VG930m | Microsoft Optical | D-Link 524

    I think, therefore I am

    Things to check:

    Bios:
    Use latest bios from the ASUS website.

    RAM:
    Because you probably use cheapo ram, set timings to 5-5-5-15 and let them run with devider to 1:1, set voltage to 2.1v to begin with.

    temps:
    Check temps with coretemp and check if temps are not going higher then 70 degrees.

    Voltage:
    Ingrease VMCH and Vcore to start with.

    LOL, Frying aint possible, your mobo and cpu are good, maybe you destroy your cheap memory.

    Unhappy so did i!


    guess i havent said that i also tried that..
    in BIOS and sofware there is a limit of 332x9 . and some others AI features, that mess up the whole thing. FSB 960/800, FSB 1280/800 and up to FBS 1600/800, all of em chashes.

    You said you have ASUS p5nSLI, well, there are 3 ASUS p5nSLI with differend chipsets.
    Nooby stuff = nfocre 570 and nforce4.
    good stuff = nforce680i

    Which one do you have?, the nforce 570 or nforce4 won't clock high.
    If you have the 680i, then it should be possible to clock much higher.

    like ownage said, it really depends on your chipset, the 4 and 5 series nforce chipsets on intel really blew chunks, 680i should ateast get you past 350 safely. Check core temp and see if you are hitting a thermal wall, if the chip temp is above 65 celsius then I'd wager that could be a problem. You need to balance a stable vcore with a stable chip temperature, I've pushed past 3.8GHz with an E6400 on stock cooler but it was only stable for a few minutes under load. The box cooler is one of the worst heatsinks, ever.

    so many things to take care of.


    well.
    at attached picture(s) you can see its a n4 chipset.
    and thoes who deliverd it said it sould be a 570.
    either of them isent that good i see.
    and about the memory, see attachments too.
    hope someone can tell if they are either good or not.

    Id like to know about the "timeing" of memory all talks about.
    i had set memory voltage to 1.9 when clocked.
    there are tons of the asked info on attached pictures.
    thats why i made em.

    I think you first should read the XS stickies before overclocking.
    If i where you i would return the nf4 p4n32sli and ask for a better board with 965, 975 or 680i chipset.
