E6600 And Voltages.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I need some advice, i'm a first time OC'er and the best stable oc i can reach is 3.4 but running at 1.5v as set in bios. I'm concerned that even though i'm idling at 30c and loading at 44ish i may be causing damage somewhere. I've read in custom PC about Northbridge damage on passive cooling, Should i be worried?

well its all up to you, your temps look really good so far just remember to keep it below 55c i think is the recomendation allthough i think the actual non oced limit is 61c as per intel but with ocing its good to keep it a little lower since your running more voltage thru it so stick with 55c

your actual voltage is prob lower look on speed fan or the abit monitoring thing (forgot what its called) and that should give you the actuall voltage prob like 1.47 i would preseume

keep a fan pointed toward your northbridge if the temps start getting to hot and a good after market cooler for your nb is a good idea, there are alot of active cooling ones and acouple of passive ones that are pretty good if those temps are geting to high


and remember with raised volts theres allways a chance of shortening the lifespan oof your com-ponenets, by how much well... it doesnt concern me because im sure that mys tuff will last a few years and thats as long as im gonna keep it befoer upgrading anways
