E6400 Overclock, 2006 cpu - Page 2

post #11 of 30
Thread Starter 
I do have them yes , but the reason i changed them is beacuse they were toasted.

1. My old psu , caused my pc to freeze and restart like a noob
2. My old graphic card 8800 gt , was giving me FULL RED screens , and was freezing my pc also ofc.

Thats the reason i changed those 2. So far the system is perfectly stable with 2.1 ghz ( his stock speed) buuut if i increase just a little bit the speed like 2.4 or 2.6, he is freezing after 2 days , 1 or 3 days. ( random )

Never increase Vcore to that much for no apparent reason.

No, actually it is 100% safe for him to increase voltage to 1.5V and up to 1.55V for 24/7, and he DOES have a good reason as his rig is unstable.

OP: Increase your CPU VOLTAGE to 1.5V and see if this fixes your issue. If it does, then that means your CPU has degraded and needs more VCORE to be stable at your former OC>

Now with 9800 GT and 500W sirtec its not. The 9800 GT its not new ofc, only the sirtec 500w psu is. I`ve resetted the clocks to default, and installed 3x times 3 different SO-s . Still having that issue.. The computer runs 24.7 since 2006 lol . And now with the new setup, in 2 3 days max, the pc freezez in IDLE. But if i set it back to 2.1 ghz he never freezez . But i really need that 3.2 ghz oc frown.gif . I dont know what i did wrong frown.gif

You're running 3.2Ghz @ 1.28v!?! That's pretty amazing, back in the day, my E6420 needed 1.5v for 3.2Ghz!

Also if youre only experiencing freezes at idle that would lead me to believe if your current power saving settings (c states and what not) are allowing the vcore to drop at idle, seems 1.28v is the load vcore, when idling the vcore might be dropping to something really low, which is why its crashing at idle.

Increasing the vcore may solve the issue (as the vcore won't drop as low on idle) or you could try turning off the power saving features in the BIOS (which is what most people did and recomended in the core 2 duo era).

Yeah i was on 3.2ghz with 1.28v for 8 years until my PSU died and GPU aswell. THe power settings i have them set to Disabled so far i know, and i always had them like this, but guys if i increase the voltaje to ..lets say. 1.35v , wouldnt this kill my cpu ? I don`t want to buy new computer lol. That setup is perfect as it is. Its one of my rigs @ home and i care about its life :lol

No you'd be completely fine, Intel states a max of 1.5v. And that was the max vcore that was thrown around by everyone back in the day. I had my E6420 running at 1.5v all its life. So you've got plenty of headroom on the voltage, just keep an eye on the temperatures.

Oki Cyph3r . I`ll just pump a bit the voltaje to 1.35v . or even 1.4. I must test it , will take prolly weeks to say "im stable" or not. Thanks guys. Arxontas, Cypher, chip94.
post #18 of 30
Increase your vcore as Cypher said. I ran my E7500 at 4.0ghz with 1.41v

1 more question i guess: if i ran stable @ 3.2ghz 1.4v for example, with a 60 temperature, 24/7 . this temperature will have a chance to damage the processor ?

Nope, 60c is fine for that CPU, I (among many others) aimed for under 65c 24/7 with C2D processors.
