Q6600 G0 High Temps with AM Cooler - Page 2

post #11 of 21
That's the temps I had with the stock Intel cooler for a few months. Installed the Zalman CNPS 9700 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118019 and I have it at the same 333 * 9 right now, with a similar ASUS board and it doesn't past 60 C under load. Intel says the G0 revision shouldn't run over 71 C and manufacturers always over-compensate, so being under that must be okay and help with it's life span.

Your temps are fine. This is what you can do:

You CAN overclock, but leave your side panel off. Try to keep your voltages as low as possible to keep your temps low.
Stay below 80C

Thanks guys! It helped. I got better fans and the temps went a little bit down.
I just want to ask one more thing. I ran prime95 10 hours on vcore 1.2500 and there were 0 warnings and 0 errors. I tried lowering to 1.24375 and even 1.23750 (at the moment) and my system looks stable but prime95 is always showing that I have 1.2750 no matter what I put in bios...
Every time I lower vcore by a notch my temperatures drop 1-2 C. Now, if I'm not mistaken factory settings are about 1.2500 (not clocked) and I'm able to get OCed CPU to run stable at even lower vcore than stock one. Is that normal?? Most of the threads I read people have vcore set to 1.3 or even more, how is it that mine runs at 1.23750 for example and should I try to lower it even more? :S

For checking the (Vcore) use cpu-Z HERE

you should see this value change as the load changes.

coretemp or realtemp both tell you what your cpu is factory set to run at. (VID)

your actual VID might be lower than you think and therefore Vcore may be still be above normal for your chip.

Post back what these say and what cpu-z says your Vcore is, when you are idle and at full load (prime95)

I downloaded Cpu Z. At the moment I'm running prime95 for a few hours to see if 1.23750 V (bios) is stable voltage. So under load cpu z says that my core voltage is 1.168 V. On idle (prime stopped) Cpu Z shows core voltage 1.192 V
Btw my system crashed (blue screen) after running prime for an hour or two at 1.23125 V in bios...
Core temp says VID 1.2750.

Edit: I checked CPU Z again and idle it says core voltage 1.200 V and under load again 1.168 V.

65C at 3.0 is way too hot IMO. Double check your mount, that Freezer 13 looks about like a Hyper 212+ which should not be that hot on a 3.0GHz overclock at such low VCore.

I have a lowly CNPS 9700 on my dad's 3.0 Q6600 and it doesn't get anywhere near 60C at full load. Barely breaks 50C on %50 fan speed.

I personally wouldn't be stress testing that until you figure your heat problem out.

Is LLC enabled (load line calibration)? (it looks like it is but just checking)

looks like you need some more Vcore.

LLC was set to auto. There are 3 options: auto, enable, disable. Should I set it to enable?

BTW As I said earlier my system looks stable at 1.2500 (almost after 10 hour prime95 run with 0 errors and 0 warnings).
After that I tried to find lower voltages that would be stable. At 1.23750 prime95 ran stable for 8 hours. After that I changed my thermal compound to Arctic Silver 5 and it lowered my temps by 1-2C. After 15-20 min of prime95 at the same voltage my system crashed (blue screen) and my temps were under 60... What does this mean, how can my system crash at 1.23750 after 15 min of prime95 when it managed to pull of 8 hour run with 0 errors at same vcore? :S

Turn it on. this supplies a little extra voltage when under load.

This is why long runs (12hr's plus) are used to be sure it is rock solid stable. Errors can creep in after 10Hrs or 10mins it usually means something is just not quite right, how hard are you pushing the RAM? (speed/voltage) what is your northbridge voltage? (then again it could just be a one off crash........)

The only real way to find out is a good long Prime95 day...... (dull I know)

Enabling LLC "should" help this.

Alright, I enabled it. I set my vcore to 1.243750 and my temps are 65-66 under load again... I can put 1.2500, thats a 100% stable voltage for my system but my temps will go even higher then. Maybe I should just leave it at 65, a lot of people told me thats ok but I'm worried when summer period comes and my ambient temps go up.
I have everything set to auto (including north bridge voltage) because I don't know what values to use. I read several overclocked guides but nobody mentioned anything except FSB, vcore and dram settings.

I changed standard thermal compound I got with AC Freezer 13 to Arctic Silver 5 and my temps went 1C up (I guess I have to wait for break in period).

I must say that overclocking is quite frustrating lol. I have been trying badly to lower my temps under 60 and I just keep failing.
Maybe I should add another fan blowing air inside so I can have 2 80mm taking air in and 1 80mm blowing out.

Btw thanks for helping me

EDIT: I tried playing SC2 and my temps don't go over 59. When I leave my PC opened (remove side panel) my temps don't go over 50!! Does this mean I should definitely add 2 more 80mm fans (so that in total i have 4 80mm fans) ?
