Q6600 G0 SLACR: Am i doing it right?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've surfed the great oracle for about 3 months. Tried countless forums, but am looking for a quick and dirty answer. I chose to overclock (duh), here are my specs.

Q6600 G0 SLACR
VID: 1.27 (sulk)
Asus P5E3-PRO 1600mhz fsb.
2x2 (4 gig) matched set DDR3 1600 (PC3-10700H) Corsair XMS3 RAM.
500 watt cooler master PSU
STOCK AIR (scythe mugen-2 revision B on the way)

Overclock settings are as follows:

FSB: 400
Multi: 8x
Vcore: 1.3 (manually set this)
LLC: enabled
RAM TIMINGS: 9-9-9-24 @ 1.66v (manually set these, which are paper specs that came with ram)
ALL INTEL BS DISABLED (speedstep, and the rest of intels "intelligent" cpu controllers)

Idles around 40C and while gaming recorded max is around 65C

QUESTION: My computer seems to be rock solid. I cant run P95 for more than a few minutes because core temps skyrocket to 71 and i kill it. So without running P95, and no blatant problems slapping me in the face, am i safe till aftermarket cpu cooler gets here? Then p95 for errors.

yours truly:
NOOB

Yes you should be fine using the chip at 65*C while gaming, these chips have a TJ max of 90*C so as long as you never hit that the chip will be good. You mentioned that you have an after market cooler on the way so make sure that you stick that puppy in as soon as it gets in. Also, no more testing of P95 until then.

I personally don't like OCing my CPU on stock fans but I've never seen a q6600 give up the ghost at 65*C. These chips are a beast, they can take a licking and keep on ticking!

Yea you're perfectly fine. But I'd suggest not doing any more stressing on it until you get that mugen 2 in.
