Maybe for a bloomfield CPU. but that even seems a tad high. I know the 920 i had, I tried to keep the QPI under 1.45. with the 32nm westmere CPU's, that what dropped to 1.35V's. With the exception of My chip. From a lot of reading, I saw next to zero complaints of it dying at 1.4V's.

Again, this all relative, especially to your cooling

I've got an NH-D15 on mine. Mines right at 1.4. Now that I see that W3680, I'm really tempted to trade my x5670 in for one.

LOL.. It does make things quite a bit easier. I was really not concerned with the Ram limitations of 24 GB. But the max safe temp. is also 68°c. so that will have to be accounted for.

The batch number seems a little more important with the "W" series as well. "A" series may clock higher with added heat, While "B" series will be a little cooler, and may clock close to the same.

The really important numbers being the last 3. I shot for between 50-150. That is the actual cut location on the wafer Die. lowest being dead center, which has more of a luck of the draw. But the 50-150's have "almost" always proven to be a great chip. I can hit 4.7ghz at 1.42V's "HT OFF" 4.57ghz "HT ON" same voltage. Which I have seen guys running the 980x at 1.45V's vcore 24/7 with enough cooling.

I'm only at 1.36ish VCore, but at 1.4VTT 😉

Did you set your VTT to 1.4 in bios?

Do you have voltage measuring points on your board. Mine always reads a bit high in bios and software. 1.375 reads 1.3525 with a multimeter

Hi guys,

I'm new here and looking for instructions for overclocking my x5660. My rig:

Mobo: Asus p6x58d premium
CPU: Intel Xeon x5660 & noctua cooler
GPU: Asus R9 290 4gb
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 12gb 2000mhz (3x4gb)
PSU: Zalman ZM-850HP
SSD: Samsung 830 240gb

Question is that I don't know nothing about overclocking so what should I do? I'm satisfied with 3.6ghz-4ghz and sticking with air cooling.

This community is so supportive that even I had courage to ask from you guys! Thanks from advance from your expertise!

Quick and dirty.
In bios: multiplier 21
bus speed 196
memory x8
ram timings 9-9-9-24 1t

Cpu vcore 1.30v-1.320v
Qpi/Vtt 1.27-1.30v
Load Line Calibration level 2

Run Intel Burn Test on very high 20 passes for stability and prime 4-8h.
