Need voltage help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've been trying to get to 3.6Ghz but to no avail. I'm currently at 3.4Ghz and everything is more stable until I run OCCT. A minute in it stops and gives me an error detected at a core #. Upping the vcore and NB volt didn't improve anything because it failed in the same amount of time with 1.42v/1.4 northbridge and 1.45v/1.46nb. The only other value I have entered in is SB which is at 1.3. If I can figure out what is causing the instability I can probably get to 3.6Ghz.

Whats your VID? put back to stock and run coretemp, it should tell you what the CPU's VID is. 1.4 vcore might not cut it for the cpu.

I think I may have found a good setting. I set the cpu voltage to 1.48 and actually lowered the NB to 1.32v...and i have termination and SB .1 above the standard value. I have no idea why my CPU requires so many volts.

All CPU's differ in overclocking quality. Actually, far from all Q6600's G0 can do 3.6GHz on air. Around 3.4GHz is much more common.

Q6600's B3 revision do much worse.

Also, enable Load Line Calibration to remedy the Vdroop when under load.

Im using a Corsair H50. I'll enable load line calibration now..and maybe drop my vcore and slightly raise my NB because OCCT still is detecting errors in cores. It just made it 10 minutes, instead of failing within the first minute.

A H50 is no better than a High-end Air cooler. Yes, you should use Load Line Calibration.
