E6600 @ 3.6, how far should i go? - Page 2

I put a droplet of AS5 on the center and spread it with my finger in a zip-lock bag. I have the fan inside the Tuniq blowing the same way as my exhaust fan int he back of the case.

If you get errors running prime within a minute then you're very unstable.

Yeah, I solved my errors by tightening the timings on my ram.

hmm..tightening? lol

I've been on the same rig for 1.5 hours now. Nothing went wrong. If I run that bottlenecks the CPU..i would probably die x_x

When I run prime95, an error occurs within a minute. Would it be safe to push the Vcore further on a Tuniq?

I don't understand how I see people at 3.4-2.6 with a Vcore of 1.3xx - 1.4xx. Is it purely because [some] are watercooled and they can reach 3.4-3.6 with such low Vcore?

EDIT Screenshot added. With TAT I'm getting 48-50 on idle =\\
On the box it says L628A271, someone interpret this for me if it matters?
I would, personally, not be using 1.55 vcore on an air cooled C2D. You can chance it on water cooling imo, but on air I wouldn't go above 1.45v CPU voltage. Generally so far, 1.45v is a max recommended "safe" level of voltage for o/c'ing a C2D on air and 1.55v is usually reserved for water cooling only. Personally, I'd rather not put more than 1.45v though a C2D on water, let alone air cooling.

Are you running dual Prime95 for stability testing, or just one instance? Really, the best program (imo) for stability testing dual core CPUs is ORTHOS. Run ORTHOS and check the load temp before any errors occur. Load temps at the IHS should not exceed 60.1°C, so imo you're better off using Speedfan to measure temperature than TAT, which will show the temps of the actual cores, that differ by a few degrees from the IHS temp in my experience. 60.1°C is the maximum operating temp of the E6600, so really, you don't want to be at, or even near this temp at load, although being at it, is better than exceeding it.

If you don't care about how long your chip is going to last, feel free to run it above it's maximum operating temperature of 60.1°C and at voltages exceeding 1.45v on air cooling and 1.55v on water. If you want it to survive for the next few years though, current thinking suggests you need to stay within 1.45v on air and below 60.1°C load temp at the IHS.

It is reccomended by Artic Silver to apply AS5 in a thin line down the center of the cpu for C2D's.

Check out the PDF for the Large Dual Core CPU..

Try dropping down to ~380 FSB and giving your RAM 2.1v and see if you're stable. From there start moving upwards.

Good info. Didn't know that!

Maybe you should reseat your heatsink. How did you apply the thermal paste? How much did you use?
I don't have PCI Frequency but I have PCI Express Frequency on auto right now. Should I still set it to 100MHz?

I ran two instances of Prime95. I'll check Orthos later.

Chozart will be sending me his Tuniq fan controller When I get it, I'll change the fan and remount the Tuniq.

I loosened the timings to 5-6-6-18 still at 1:1 and increased the vdimm to 2.15v. For now I'm going to lower my voltages and FSB so I won't kill my rig until i get things straight. I'm ran Prime95 on both cores and one stopped in 1 minute and other stopped in 3 minutes.

Joeking78, I see you have the Tuniq too. What temps do you get and how did you mount it?

Dropping down to 380FSB might cause more problems. I've heard of the P5W having issues anywhere between 350-399 fsb
