E6600 how far to oc - Page 4

post #31 of 35
Thread Starter 
I put a drop and spread it around the cpu so it is really thin but can that possibly make it not start up the pc normally?

Also tried reseting cmos and that did absolutely nothing. Anything else anybody can think of?

P5b Deluxe (FSB: 500MHZ, NB and FSB termination voltage maxed)
DDR21000 RAM (1:1 ratio 4-4-4-5 2.3v)

I'm watercooled. If someone is stable on air near that speed...they need to post WHICH air cooler.

Also, if you have not attached the air cooler exactly right, it may be seated improperly. This will royally mess with temps. Are you using the stock thermal pad that came with that cooler?


EDIT: OK I see you switched to a TTBT? What thermal grease did you use? How did you prep the CPU and TT surfaces? What process did you use to "seat" it? You shoudl be seeing low temps at idle at the very least.
Havent seen anyone else post yet in regards to your question about air cooled closed to 3.5 ghz...but, my rig is air cooled with the Zalman 9700 and clocked at 3.3ghz stable and mantains an excellent temp.

This is my first Intel rig as I came from an AMD 3700+ OC'd to 2.4. I used AMD for the longest and have been very pleased with swapping to Intel.

I will be overclocking it this weekend to 3.5.
