hey Robilar... do you think I might have caused permanent damage to the NB?
I had about 30+ freezes before I had the balls to try and mess with it mid-project...

Here's my pictures:

http://gallery.filefront.com/CanadaZenmaster/97112/

Overclocked @ 3.4Ghz (took it to 3.6 but no point right now).
Ram @ 1t 3-3-3-7 (9800MBps read, 7800MBps write [Everest Ultimate], 7800MBps combined [Sandra 2007])

Vcore is 1.4000V
Northbridge 1.45V (to get it stable)
Ram 2.2V
All other voltages as specified in first post.

CPU Tjunction [Hottest Area] 34C

Turning on Prime95 AND PDF password cracker -> 51C is hottest I can get it with 100% utilization on BOTH cores. Prime95 does not fully load both cores I really like the cooling in this case, the airflow is very high and the noise very low especially compared to my old rig. This computer is going to last me 4 years just like the last one!

CPU base 25C
MB 32C
HD's 23C

GPU Diode [Hottest Area] 54C
-> Oc'ed 8800 GTS to 570/850 for now. More in a few years when I need it.

Northbridge 18C <-Via Everest
Southbridge 15C <-Ditto

I would like to bench mark my sys prior to installing anything or tweeking it. Any suggestions on free tools would be helpfull (along with links).

is 3dmark basc fine for grapgics?

is SP2004 Orthos Edition what I need to stress test?

Any help would be aprecheated.

Thanks,

Ok Tactical... I couldn't wait for you... heheh... I ordered the Noctua!!!!

I am so freeking exited about this Air setup now!!!!!

The only thing that could make it better would be if I got a TT with 8mm pipes or something like that... hahha...

I guess my next stop is a phase cooler for the CPU... is that Cryo-Z ever gonna come out? I wonder what it could do with this MoBo... I bet we'd get all the way up to the highest FSB the MoBo can handle and that would be the limiting factor, right?

Hi all,

I have managed to get my rig Orthos table to 3.65Ghz on water.

http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=211487

I wanted to know, what is the max VCore voltage that everyone else runs at? I am currently at 1.575V - 33-35C idle 50-52 stressed. I have my CPU VTT voltage maxed to 1.55V - Northbridge at 1.45V (24C idle). My E6700 is a B1 (engineering release) version.

Kind regards

I just realized something...

I have the Noctua coming for the NB and a Spirit for the SB... but I have my X-FI on the top slot and I like it there... if I brought it down to fit the Spirit it would be awfully close to the PSU and then I might hear more interference on my audio...

so I have to get a Jing Ting or some ERS paper ... hummm...

it was the Spirit that could not fit on the NB with an X-Fi correct? is there NO way... how about bending something?

Hi oliverg,

You are in the right place and welcome....

Could you please fill out your system specs, It makes it easy in future posts for others to help you out.

I see you you have a similar setup to alexisd so you will get the most help from him, he has done a lot of of benching.

To help us out you could post some screens of cpu-z (cpu and memory)

It looks like you are on the right track and are getting a higher clock with less volts than Alexisd
You will find that most 6700 chips do take a lot of volts to get a high OC. It is a little high but hey it works and temps are good.

If you are happy with your clock then you can start decreasing your volts 1 setting at a time and testing again. 30 min will do but i suggest 2 or more hours orthos
Have you manually set your memory timing are you running 1:1 or 4:5
If you are running 1:1 you could try to get your ram @ 3-4-4-10 instead of your stock 4-4-4-15. You can push the volts up to 2.2V but check it with another program (everest) or the bios voltage monitor as this board does deliver a little more volts over what you set in the bios.
Also try to get your ram to run 1T
With the VTT voltage try to back it down as this is outside of what intel recommends. I posted a quote about the subject on page 170 This also covers you cpu volts.
This will start you off & I am sure alexisd will have more to offer.

P.S. where did you pull the ES chip from????
Could not find one anywhere.

Ok... so while my computer was all destroyed I finally decided to try to get a higher bench out of my second RAID0 which out of the blue dropped from 132MN/s to 98... I set up three different RAID0's with the extra drives I had and I got one to clock slightly higher at 110MB/s while the other held up at 135MB/s...

So I guess it isn't the SB but crappy drives...

I also found myself re-cabling the whole case to bring the wires to the front... it doesn't look pretty but it gives me much better airflow!

Pics in my Gallery in 5min... EDIT: oops... I still need to install Photoshop, heheh... maybe later

Thank you for the warm welcome.

I will organise some SSs of CPUz asap and post them up.

Voltage decreases (VCore) aren't working - if I even bring VCore voltage down a single notch, the system wont run Orthos stable.

Orthos benching has been done for 8 hours overnight without any hiccups. I actually didn't do that intentionally, I set it up and fell asleep. Woke up the next day and it was still at it. Whilst I was suprised, I was also happy and worried knowing I'd probably reduced my CPUs lifespan by 20%!!

I have had my RAM tighter - the default this set came with was actually 5-5-5-15 (on auto) and the voltage was way too low at the start - I've had mem voltages at 2.2V but as I'm running unlinked (11:12 FSBRAM) I prefer to keep voltages at the lowest stable. I'm not as concerned with ram (am currently at 4-4-4-12/1T) - I really wanted to know what max vcore voltages others have been able to sustain without letting the magic smoke out.

Thanks very much for the VTT CPU voltage tip - I read earlier on somone had the setting maxed out - I used to run it at AUTO but I was getting erratic temps. I had started the thread from the beginning, got to page 100 and then just used the search feature! I will go back and read page 170 in a moment.

As for the ES procs , I own an IT company (Microsoft Certified Partner) we used to get CPUs sent to us all the time for evaluation.

Thanks again for your excellent information and time.

Kind regards
