Just a 6600 Q

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Trying to get my 6600 up to 3.6ghz at safe temps. even with the tuniq tower if its at 3.6 ghz. 400fsb multi 9 the load-60 idle-40 and room temp about 65-70 F. I have to boot it with a 1.5V setting or its not stable. thats what i get for recieving a 32A from newegg. I has a p5b dlx

Is there another way to reach 3.6 with lower temps? will lowering my multiplier and highering my fps get me to get lower voltages for lower temps?, vice versa?
I read somewhere 1.5V on a cd2 will lower lifespan true?

I would try reseating your heatsink, that might lower your temps, and if not, you can try lapping the tuniq tower, and if that doesn't bring your temps down enough, lap the cpu's IHS.

And as for voltages, and time you increase the volts of something you decrease its life span, cause with more volts brings more heat, and more heat can really ruin your equipment in the long run, so by keeping it cool, we try to limit that wear and tare affect on our rigs.

well if you look at it that way as heat being the only facor than lifespan wont ever change as long as its kept at a decent temp. you wont ever cook a chicken if you leave it in the sun. it would deteriorate before doing so. i was only worried if the voltage itself did any damage in its own way.

as far as teh heatsink and fan goes it is a great idea and thanks for the suggestion. i might end up doing it. although im not so sure the difference in temps between lapped and non lapped.

also is there any perforamce difference of a e6600 with the fsb of 450 at a multi of 8=3.6ghz vs a 400fbs 9multi=3.6ghz?

well I lapped my IHS and my cooler, my cpu's IHS was pretty concave, and I noticed like a 6-7C drop in temps. just from lapping the IHS. when I lapped the cooler, I got another 2-3C drop. Those little bits add up in the long run.

Regarding life-span, what does your CPU-Z voltage reading say when you set voltage to 1.5000v in BIOS?

Mine reads 1.416v when I set it to 1.4625v in BIOS. The P5B DLX BIOS hardware monitor also reads 1.416v when the BIOS is set to 1.4625v. This is because of v-droop I believe. The CPU-Z reading is (apparently) actually how much voltage your CPU is getting. If I set my v-core to 1.5000v in BIOS, I get about 1.443v actually going though the CPU and slightly less when it's under full load.

Check your CPU-Z voltage reading with your CPU at idle and load and see what the reading is .

With regards to CPU load temperatures. The best thing you can do is lap the bottom of your heat sink or CPU IHS, as stated. I wouldn't lap my CPU IHS myself, as I'll want to be selling my CPU next year and people like to see the details on the CPU IHS face when they buy . But it's a good idea to lap the bottom of your heat sink or water block if it's a bit rough.

If you're using air cooling, it's always a good idea to have a side intake fan feeding your CPU heat sink fan/s with cool air from outside the case and make sure all the warm air is quickly evacuated from the case. If you haven't got things set up like this atm, doing so should lower your CPU temp by around 3°C or so.

Also, always use AS5 (until something better is invented) and make sure not to apply too much, or too little .

What are the timings and voltage on that RAM?

Maybe you're not using enough Vdimm? I see that a few people here don't want to try 2.2. or more when running RAM, I use a 2.30v.

And a Coolmax PSU? Sorry but that's gotta go. Time to invest on a PCP&C.
BTW, I wouldn't even put a 1000W Coolmax in my machine, even if it were free, I'd sell it and buy a PCP&C.

My ram is set on auto as well as just about everything else besides vcore ram speed and cpuspeed/fbs.
What advantage does a the other power supply have over this coolmax.
