What are the safe TEMPS for a E6600 overclocked? - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Thread Starter 
I just woke up and noticed my system has been stable for 7 hours. Here is a pic. I am still confused on the TEMPS. Core temp is recording it around 56C at full Load using ORTHOS. I also did a 100% MEMTEST yesterday and I passed. I am assuming my system is stable. Check out my voltage at load.




1.) I read elsewhere than TAT was designed for INTEL Mobile Processors. I believe it was the white paper on this processor.

2.) I have my memory in Sync at 740mhz and my FSB at 1480. Thus giving me a 1:1 ratio. Is this ok or should I keep my memory at stock speeds of 800mhz?

3.) I also read I applied AS5 incorrectly. I put it all of the processor and very think I will be cleaning this and reapplying it per AS5's instructions when I change out my PSU next week.

You need to post a larger picture as that one is not readable. 56C at full load is very good for your system. You are running at 3.6GHz I believe? 1:1 is pretty much the best setting for CPURAM with Core 2. Yes, the line down the IHS that you mentioned learning about previously is the correct method of applying the thermal silver compound.

I would use TAT for determining the full load thermals of your processor. You will find that TAT at 100% on both CPU cores will bring your CPU to a higher thermal than even Orthos dual prime. The reason for this is that TAT creates a higher utilization of the CPU than any other program found so far. I would use Core Temp for determining the thermal output of each core.

I resized the image. I am running at 1:1 at 3.33 ghz. 3.6 is requiring a lot of power and my temps are hitting 75C!

Your thermals at 3.33Ghz are fine. 54/55 at TAT is excellent. You have a very good chip as shown by your CPU voltage, your very low VID @ 1.2250 and your high overclock. Have you tried setting your ram at 2.1v and setting to 4 - 4 - 4 - 10?
Have you tried 3.4Ghz?

Ropey,

I just got back running errands all day. I purchased a Multimeter to check out my PSU volts. I was planning on trying for 3.4 next with 4-4-4-12 timings at 2T.
I noticed in one of your previous posts you stated I should LOAD with TAT. I did and I get 55C-57C. Not bad I think at 3.33.
I have the BIOS vCore set at 1.2875 and CPU-z reads 1.248/1.25. I am assuming this is the infamous vdroop I have learned about. Still don't know why it happens but thats the terminology I have heard.

1.) Upon load the Voltage drops to around 1.2. Is this normal?

Your motherboard contains a "Voltage Regulation Module" or VRM. The VRM does what its name says, it regulates the voltages necessary for requests by the rails and the output voltage can and does fall (or "droop") proportional to the load current. The Capapcitors (CAPS) and MOSFETS discharge and at the point of a Discharge --> Recharge there is a buildup of the necessary voltage and this leads to a droop. One can perform a Vdroop modification which will help to even out the load line and stabilize the CPU Vcore. This is the drop to 1.2V that you mention.

A Vdroop mod is an advanced modification and should not be hastily undertaken.

The Vdroop is not to be mistaken (and often is) with the Multiple VID Voltage IDentification which is a characteristic of all the modern CPUs. This characteristic allows the CPU to modify the voltage necessary to perform functions.

There is no such thing as a static single default value for core voltages on the modern processors, bar none!

Intel and AMD Processors for some time now have carried a technological enhancement called "Multiple VID". Multiple VID (Voltage IDentification)is a Code Set Instruction for raising and lowering Processor Core Voltages [utilizing a 6-bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC) for Intel and a 5-bit DAC for AMD] housed in the CPU. This DAC uses a VID-code provided by the CPU to program the desired CPU core voltage. Thus the regulated output voltage can be dynamically adjusted by changing the VID-code "on the fly" and giving a "boost' to the core voltage when needed or dropping it when not needed. This helps to keep the processor cooler as lower voltages usually equal lower processor operating temperatures.

You will not have a static voltage with modern processors and any program that gives you a static readout is reading from BIOS the core voltage setttings and restrapping them. Do not trust any program that gives you a static readout of your voltage.

I find that Everest Ultimate Edition is the best program for ascertaining the VID. As a matter of a fact, it is the single most used diagnostic program I have for all my systems.

Hi there. I am revisiting the thread that I started. I have updated my sig showing my latest system layout. I however have installed VISTA and my computer seems to be running much faster. I flashed my board to the latest BIOS from p21 to p27 on my EVGA 680i motherboard. I was wondering what should be my next steps to increasing my overclock. As I type this my system temps are idle at 42-44C.

My overclock is in SYNC mode and my FSb is 1532/766. Memory is 4-4-4-12 running at 2.1V. I have increased the voltage to spec. on my Corsair Dominator because I was running at 1.85V and my Flight Simulator FSX was crashing.

Thanks,

Abe
