HELP: VID Pin Mod for QX6700, Please Explain

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Dear All,

I have an old QX6700(ES)(stock 2.6Ghz) on ASRock G41C-VS with G41 Chipset, As it has an unlocked multiplier I am planning to OC it up to 3Ghz, problem is, it never run stably after hitting 2.9Ghz, it sounds weird as http://hwbot.org/hardware/processors#key=core_2_qx6700_2.66ghz the record for air cooled QX6700 should be 3.6Ghz, while mine 6700 was water cooled and temp never pass 58°C under heavy load.

I checked the Vcore and it is always stuck at 1.22-1.28V and I suspected that I will need a higher Vcore then that, I wasnt surprised that there are no Vcore setting for the ASRock mb (Only DRAM, NB, VTT and GTLRef), thats why I would like to try the VID mod http://www.overclock.net/t/341123/intel-bsel-vid-mod-guide after went though a few posts I found it difficult to decide which pins to short and which pins to cover as I knew that I need to consider stock VID config as well. I also try the infamous spreadsheet that never worked... http://www.madshrimps.be/vbulletin/f...63/#post157535

Would anyone please further explain or just tell me which pins to be modded in order to increase the Vcore to 1.45 and 1.50? (Default VID is 1.3500V)






Any replies would be appreciated!

I would seriously advise against going any higher on the voltage on a board like that unless you want it to blow up.

Thanks for the advice but It doesnt really matter, the cpu and board either get OCed a little and enjoy their final moment or go straight to the bin, it is an old pc and I just wanna try to milk any juice left(if there are any).
