E6700 OC'ed to 3000 MHz

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Well,

Thanks to "Nasgul" and "gonX", I have been able to OC my new E6700 system to 3000 Mhz.
The temps are running high though, I have just ordered a Artic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro ( pics attached ) for $24.00

Hopefully that will make a difference!

In the mean time should I clock it back or are those temps ok for a couple of days?

Those temps are fine Nothing to worry about. At least, I am assuming that's under load.... It idle, then yes, you're a little hot. I'd like to see load temps (idle does not mean anything, except when really high)

Yea those are idle temps, so I clocked it back to 2666 until I get my new cooler, I don't want to fry my new system!

Sir,

This will likely not have been explained to you.
The algorithms used to determine thermal levels (temperatures) on the Core 2 Duo series of processors on ASUSTek boards are not totally accurate, Intel P965 especially. This is due to the Thermal Control Units on the CPU and Motherboards conflicting with each other and not giving exactly accurate values for thermal status, I will not go into explanation about this however unless you wish me to do so.
The temperature that your two processor cores are operating at are acceptable if these temperatures were accurate and at load, however it is likely that they are not accurate therefore you must be wary.

Also be warned of the voltage "droop" that can be experienced on these motherboards, this is again due to the confliction of these two chips. For safety do not allow the thermal status of these processors to breach 55C. They are rated to operate at up to 60C however with the incorrect readings the actual temperature may be up to 5C higher than what the software reports to you.

Your overclock however looks acceptable.

Things To Add:
Safety - Enable Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology
Stablability - Disable Speed Spectrum
Safety (but decreases stablability slightly) - Enable Execute Disable Technology

For an increase in stablability (but not a recommendation) you can disable the CPU Code Update Sub-System, however I would recommend not doing so

No Motherboard Voltages should have been changed up to this point, if so return them to automatic or default values.
CPU Voltage should have been increased very slightly, if it has been increased by a substantial amount decrease this value to maintain long life expectancy at the given clock frequencies.

Heres my cpuz screeny.
3ghz @ 375fsb 8x multi
vcore-> 1.37
ddr2 @ 935mhz, 2.3v

Temps on TAT show 41c idle, however my Ai probe shows 51c idle....? If I lower the multi to 7 and keep the fsb, TAT shows a higher clock temp at idle ->46c.
Ai probe shows 54c. These temps dont even coincide with each other. I could understand a constant + or - 5-10c.....but the fluctation goes back and forth. Looks like it supports what the the manual was saying about the math calculations being mixed up.
Attachment 31663 so....do we ALL need to buy phase now er what? Im p1st about these temps. I was looking forward to my first 500fsb clock until I started seing numbers close to 50 on idle........HHHEEEELLLLPPPPPP

Why arent you guys just using Speedfan? It works fine for me.

I usually hover aroundn -25c idle and -13c folding both cores. What is this TAT people keep talking about? I think people are getting a little nervous and comparing these chips to AMD chips as far as max temps go.

check the "Get your thermal analaysis tool here" post. Nas put up a new link for thermal monitoring tool for core duo's.
