Yeah VRM's like lower voltages.. less work they have to do. I'd lower it to like 1.325v and see if it can sustain that overnight & then work from there.

Well, I looked up where the person I bought it from set the voltages at, and that was 1.18v for 3.6ghz and 1.264v for 4ghz. I am running 3.8ghz so I figured 1.24v. It's been stressing for half hour and still working.

Good to hear! . Hope it turns out stable thumb.gif I'm sure with some testing you'll be able to find the voltage where the VRM's can't handle the stress anymore as well, and I'd suggest being a bit below that point so they don't get stressed too hard for 24/7 use.

I'll tell you the issue.... 78C. Core 2 Duo, and Core 2 Quads, like to stay below 72C, 70C preferably.

It could be a couple issues causing the temperatures to go that high. Either:

A.) Your cooling solution isn't as good as the previous owner's. This could mean Air flow, HS/F, or mounting.

B.) Too much thermal compound.

Overclock the right way... Start at stock. Plug in all the voltages and timings for RAM. Bump FSB 5-10MHz at a time, stress test for 20-30 minutes to see if it's semi-stable. If it is, jump another 5-10, repeat. Everytime it gets an issue, bump your voltage a click or two, and repeat. Just jumping up to a certain speed without any trial and error can be ugly sometimes. smile.gif

i believe that the 45 nm parts have a highest voltage rating of 1.3625
Well in your case , good to hear that you got it up and running.

In this case , assuming the previous owner reached 4 GHz , only variable i see would be cooling.
i guess going for a better HSF or cooling solution will help you reach the tops.

And DaClownie has given a decent "gyan" on how to go about it.

Go push it higher =D

78C is way too hot for any CPU. I've overclocked too many Core 2 CPUs to count, and I personally don't want to see much over 60C. I definitely would not want to see 70+.

I only read your OP:

#1 You're using 4 sticks of RAM, which will limit any intel-mobo 775 overclock. Start with only 2 if you want to get anywhere.
#2 You need to get those temps under control. A 45nm Duo should not be anywhere near 70C.

After you get your temps controlled and OC with 2 sticks of RAM, you'll know where you stand. You can add the other two, but you'll then need to pump your NB voltage and you may not ever get it stable at higher clocks.

^ About summed it up for you there.

* 78 is too hot. I think 71.4 is the thermal limit for the 45nm chips. Too far over that for too long can cause instability.

* 4 sticks f RAM put more stress on the north bridge. Start with 2. Once you get everything stable throw the other 2 back in and you'll know it's the nb needing more volts/ref tuning if it becomes unstable.

Ok guys, I think I figured it out. I lowered the voltage one whole .1mv and it has made it more stable than before. My temps are rarely near 60c now. My last voltage failed 1 worker, so I bumped it up a tad. I had been stressing for half hour.
