Q6600 OC results - thoughs?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello guys! A friend of mine build himself a build using the Q6600(all second hand)
Parts:
CPU:Q6600 G0
CPU Cooler:Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 Pro(new)
Mobo:Asus P5K-E/WiFi-AP
PSU: Njoy 500W(new)
GPU: HD 4670(his old one)

Now,onto overclocking.Using these settings,we achieved 3.2Ghz and 3.5Ghz

Max temps after 1 hours of prime95 blend test: 72-72-68-67 from TjMax: 100C
The vCore in Windows is Idle/Load.

Here is a validation of 3.5GHz,they are tested and stable,no kernel-whea erros either.

What do you think? Is this a good overclock of the Q6600? I never had one,only dual core from LGA 775 and then my i5-3570k.Any input would be appreciated.
P.S.: What wattage do you think he'll need for all his specs and my GPU,which according to most review sites gives an average of 90W and max ot 115W or so?

Seems sound, Its near identical to what my Q6600 used to be, as long as he keeps it well cooled and as cold as humanly possible it will be a sound chip.

Mine peaked at 120w but that was because I was really pushing it.

Always over compensate, better to have too much wattage than not enough. thumb.gif

Mine is running at 3.4GHz @ 1.25v

Nice,3.4Ghz @ 1.25V is quite nice,stock voltage is 1.17V
With these chips,is there a way to make offset OC(Like sandy/ivy/haswell)?For example,mine is 4.3Ghz @ 1.1V on load and on idle,it's 1600Mhz @ 0.8V(i5-3570k) . I don't understand why there is higher voltage on idle,dat vDroop.It's the same as when using fixed to OC newer generations.
Another question: Do we have to turn off some features in BIOS? C-states etc..?

@ryanbob1234: Max temp while stress testing was 72 on two cores(he was sharing screen,talking skype,they had more load on them) and 68,67 on the other two.His PSU,while not the best,has 400W on 12V,enough for his config.If I am to sell my GPU to him,will his PSU be enough? My GPU draws 90W on average and around 110W on peak. If you have tested with a Wall-a-meter,how much does a Q6600 draws on 3.5Ghz with the voltage he has = 1.39-40V

C1E will lower the voltage when it's idle, to me it's a good thing. Lower cpu temp and less power consumption :-)
