3.6Ghz is a very common wall with those chips.

EDIT: your going to need to need dry ice to cool 1.65v, oh and your chip probably wont last a month.

The clocks were stable enough for general use and would only crash when priming more than an hour. For me they were stable enough. This was on a Gigabyte P45 Extreme. Sorry i cant help you OP because i cant remember the settings, but i did mess around with the GTL buffers and all that other crap, just wanted to point out MY chips did not die running 1.65vcore for a year and are still running strong.
This.

I've had my q6600 running @ 3.9ghz @ 1.65v for 3 years now, Still rock solid and my temps are great. Even when I ran my mugen 2 temps were still great.

I dunno where you guys got your info about this chip but it's very clear most of you have never owned the chip or done any research on it.

And the reason why I cannot get my q6600 any higher then 3.9ghz (I've had it boot 4.01ghz twice the whole time I've had it) is due to a FSB wall on my mobo. Regardless if I disable cores or run 1.75v vcore with a 1.5v NB it doesn't matter, it will never post.

But I will say, it will be difficult for you to achieve 4ghz with a q6600 even with a great motherboard.

Your best bet would be to achieve 3.8ghz and call it a day. Just dial it in with 425x9 and go from there.

Here is an old screenshot that's always nice to see.

If you're talking to me, it is stable at 3.65, as you can see in the screenshot it's running slightly higher than that with around 1.46-1.48 volts under extreme load.

My motherboard is a junker and will only allow me to get around 1.48 volts out of it under load maximum. As I said before my idle voltage is about 1.69v and has been for quite some time.

.04 is a gigantic difference, my apologies. I mean you can probably run Metro 2033 on max settings because of that clock difference. I really do believe it's perfectly stable on a 3.65 but not a 3.69 and that you would leave it at 3.69 instead of dropping it to an actual stable 3.65.

You're either retarded or just stupid. Which is it?

Whoa there guy. A cpu can very easily be stable @ 3.65ghz and completely unstable @ 3.69ghz.

For example, my cpu is stable @ 3.901ghz, but if I take it up to 3.95ghz it would crash. Just as my comp is completely unstable @ 4ghz.

So before you get all raged and start calling people names, maybe you should calm down a bit and realize that these sorts of things can and will happen.

The point of the post flew way over your head.
He's choosing to run what he knows is an unstable clock instead of running what he knows is a stable clock and the difference is .04
There is absolutely no gain to it. Obviously it can be unstable at one point but stable just a few hairs higher.

Let me spell it out in simple terms so that the feeble minded can understand.

He's running an unstable clock that gives absolutely no performance gain over the stable counterpart.

Take a step back and look at the real picture.

there must be another thing that is not making this stable
I'd have to see him at 4.0 stable to believe it. It's not that it can't be done, but it's very rare, and then there's the fact that you can't get it prime stable at 3.8. I don't know what makes you think there are "alot of them" at 4.0, but this simply is false. Mine will break into 3.8 in the 1.5x voltage, but it refuses to be stable.

Kush can post that everyone else are idiots only because he happens to have one of the rare chips that run happy over 3.6. Find me a list of Q6600s at 4.0, there are probably less than 10 you can find, if even.

You've run it up to 1.65 already, Q6600s don't need high FSB so there really is not alot of tuning to do on the motherboard.

Overclocking them is pretty much straight up VCore and NB voltage tweaking. If 1.65 doesn't do it, and you have the board set up properly so RAM isn't out of spec and NB is happy at your FSB, there's really not much else to do.

What are your settings for everything else in BIOS? NB volts, RAM settings/voltage/multiplier, FSB, PLL, VTT?

Well I must have missed over his statement saying that he is purposely running @ 3.69ghz and complaining about it being unstable when 3.65ghz is stable for him.

Also, again no need to be a dick about things, either you can be helpful or just not post it's that simple.

As Kush is pointing out, I run 3.69 because it's stable for everything I do. So there's no point in going to 3.65 just to get stress test stable. Yes there is a barely negligible performance difference, if at all, but I have no need to back down that slight bit as I have no interest in making my stress tests stable when not needed.

Besides, I like my make my epeen as large as possible, and 3.7 instead of 3.65 achieves that. Even if my epeen is only 2 inches because I still own a Q6600.
