Overclock Q6600

Asus P5q deluxe motherboard

Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 2.802 GHz / 3007 MB
How do I overclock my Q6600 and use the EPU to turn off the fan? I don't want the fan to be making noise all the time, usually it makes an annoying buzzing noise.

The motherboard I have is an Asus P5Q Deluxe Motherboard and it has this cool software called EPU which can make the fan not make any noise, but it gets disabled when I use the BIOS to overclock the CPU to 3.00 GHz.

Anyone know how to overclock the CPU for a certain profile in EPU? Please help me in advanced.

I heard its not good to overclock using profiles. q6600 has 1066 fsb the correct ram is ddr2 533. Try to raise fsb to 333x9=3ghz u need ddr2 667. or raise it to 400x9=3.6ghz u need ddr2 800 or 400x8=3.2ghz ddr2 800 required.

I have PC 8500 Memory. The reason I don't want to Overclock in BIOS is because then I cannot disable my fan in EPU 6 enging, which can turn off my fan. My fan makes a LOT of noise when its on, not like what a server makes, like an annoying buzzing noise.

Oh, also I am using the fan that came with my processor. Should I go for a fan such as this:

or

I mean This computer can make a bit of noise since I am using a different computer for music recording, but not annoying like the fan I currently have.

Do you guys think I should go for a Q9950 or something, which is already 3.0 GHZ? I do video editing sometimes in Adobe Premiere Pro and when I tried to render on my old P5B-E Motherboard, the computer kept resetting itself when its on full load. That time, I used an antec fan which I believe wasn't enough to cool the CPU.

What should I do? Should I ditch my Q6600 and buy a new Quad Core? Or should I replace it with my E7400, which is in my other machine?

the computer kept resetting itself? I think cpu is overheating, try to check cpu temp in bios, it's highly recomended to overclock thru bios, if the cpu fan make too much noise try to remoive it and clean the dust u also need to apply new thermal paste if that failed try to change cpu fan, there is no need to upgrade cpu try to overclock it fist, pc2 8500 ddr2 1066 you can try to raise fsb to 533 and decrease mult 7 or 6 (533x6=3.2ghz or 533x7=3.7ghz) if that failed u need to decrease memory speed eg 400fsbx8=3.2ghz decrease mem speed to ddr2 800 pc2 6400.
