    Default E6600/Gigabyte OC Settings Help

    I have a Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 with an E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz cpu in a system I built last year. I had the cpu overclocked to 3.2 and I recently noticed it had been reset to the factory settings. (I found some info that this occurs when an external USB storage is plugged in on start up... I have 2 WD Passports I use). I've googled and searched here on the info on what settings to use to set my system back up to 3.2 but I'm coming up empty handed. I didn't bookmark or print out the settings info I got online last year.

    Can anyone here give me the settings I need to use in BIOS to OC back to 3.2? I apologize in advance if they are here somewhere and I've overlooked them. I've been trying for the past 2 afternoons to OC my system again with no help and i'm not having much luck. Thanks for any help...

    I entered all the system specs in my CP if the other component info helps.

    please don't use custom fonts.

    Im using the same board but with a Q6600 and ive been having cold boot issues since day 1. Can get a stable 3.4 with 24 hours orthos test. But as soon as i turn off my pc for a few hours it resets to stock settings on restart. I had to up the cpu voltage to 1.5 ish to eliminate this problem. But i wouldnt reccomend running a 24/7 oc on this board without adequate after market cooling to the cpu, ram and northbridge. Heres a guide i found helpful.

    Im a bit short of time at the moment il give u some more settings if ya need em at weekend. Il dig out my notes i made and see if it helps you.
