E6700 Baseline Voltage tests.... - Page 2

I was wrong BTW, the lowest setting on this board with 0711 BIOS is 1.100v. With it on this setting CPU-z showed the voltage at 1.056v, and the system failed one of the Stress Prime tests after 2 hours and 52 minutes.

So, the lowest stable voltage on this E6700 is 1.072, the screenshot showing dual Stress Prime runs over 20 hours at this voltage is attached.

Right now, I have reset the voltage to 1.125 (1.072 after droop) and increased my FSB to 270 and have 2 Stress Prime tests running. We will see if it passes again for the same time period with the higher FSB.....and then move on up.

I'm not sure if I should be disappointed, the Intel spec lists voltage as low as 0.85 IIRC, and while this board obviously couldn't take me there, I was hoping to at least pass the lowest I could go. But, since no one else has done this type of testing I don't have anything to compare to.

the .85 s probably for speedstep or whatever it uses to lower the multi/speed....

Yes, I thought that too, but I still wanted lower.


Well, it failed a Stress Prime test after 20 hours and 34 minutes at 1.072 (after droop) and 270FSB.

Turned the system off and let it rest overnight. This morning I upped the vCore to 1.125 (1.080 after droop) and will see if it can pass a 24+ hour run of dual Stress Primes.

Well tbh at 1.072V at stock 2.66Ghz is pretty good considering stock volts is like 1.3V

Well, it did it.

270FSB at 1.08v for over 30 hours. Screenshot attached.

This system will go back to folding at these settings for a few days and then I will try to increase the FSB to 275......
