I turn on my webcam, it'll BSOD. Sometimes it would, sometimes it wouldn't. So instead of dealing with that kinda random acts of deranged cyber-poltergeist possession, I just opted for <3300MHZ performance... which in my case is mostly gaming. After watching the frames in my games, 3332MHZ vs 3271MHZ has about 2 frame difference...

In YOUR case however, is film, which speeds do matter alot more than frames... but also data reliability and safety is a concern. I don't think anyone can give you the best answer but yourself to be honest, you value your data differently... from an outsider's point of view, I value your data more so than the extra i dunno, 15 minutes, of speed gain you would get from clocking close to the wall. I'd bump down to 370FSB (3330MHZ), and bump up the volt to 1.4125v, since you were golden for 10hours at 376FSB at 1.3875v... and that extra 54MHZ won't make enough of a difference to push your rig that hard...

just an opinion.
I completely agree, your rationale is dead on bro! Thank you so much for your support! But let me ask you... do you think you might also have a NB problem... I mean you don't have 4GB but if I remember correctly you might be running stock cooling on it which might have the same effect... out NB get's hot... and it had problems keeping up with my 4GB since I had to lower my OC on my RAM when I went 4GB... perhaps that's what we need... NB tinkering...

I know that more NB voltage won't help me cause I've tried that.... once you get to the 1.55V mark there is little gains from added voltage if I remember correctly... then again that was with the rigged pan on the stock HS... so maybe I can crank up a bit higher.... but I haven't seen any of the guys here with Spirits on their NBs going higher than that...

any thoughts?

To clarify for Q6600 G0 people, this is what I think we need to figure out:

The only hope for better numbers is that X might be running stock NB cooling still and we might be able to creep a touch closer to the wall with proper cooling... but other than for 3.3 bragging rights there is little to be gained there...

Also:
Why did my board not handle 4GB and the Quad? I have excellent Air cooling so that's not it... I was 10hs small FTT stable so that's still not it (remember I failed in the initial minute of the blend)... was it my PSU? I am quite loaded here but people keep telling me that my Antec 650W is ok... I do have a PC & Cooling 850W on the way but would that have a chance at letting me run 4GB?

BTW: Blend test has passed 15min with 3.26GHz and 2GB, I'll let it run an hour then hopefully run 3.3GHz overnight

Hey Robilar when you tested the accuracy of Everest's volt readouts, did you also test to see if the Dimm's voltage read accurately?
I get a slight positive Vdroop and I am worried about feeding too much volts to my HZs now that I am going to try to run em hard again.

I am hoping to get 4-4-4-12-1T 950MHz again.

4 sticks of RAM?

If you have 4 sticks, Quad, 680i, I am sure there's alot of stress on the NB, without a doubt. The best way to know if it's the NB crapping out is to watch the NB temps while ur blending/stressing RAM somehow. If you're approaching 50C, it's too high. I removed all of my NB/SB/Mofsets and AS5'd everything. Then when I really want to reach those >3.3ghz, I do have a fan blowing on the NB. It's a finned heatsink, so I feel like the fan I have is doing fine when I bench.

What I found helpful was that my Tsunami Dream has a fan on the case-window. That alone was enough to draw the heat off the NB a couple notches when the case is on... the 650W, single video card, it's fine. I'm running 620W and I have crazy overclock on my 8800gtx.

What's the temp on your chipset now?

Has anyone ran 1.55V on their NB?
I ran one hour and one thread of Prime failed... and I was only going 4-4-4-12-1T 900MHz!

X, the 620 Corsair is supposedly better than my Antec 650W.


EDIT: I got a blend running with 3.3GHz 1.4Vcore and 4-4-4-12-2T 1000MHz 2.3V and NB at 1.55V...

soooo frustrating that not only I had to loose 2GB but also tone down my RAM speed...
I am DONE with this board... no Quad no-go... I am wishing i had a P35 NB reeeealy bad now...

Hey all, been lurking on this thread for a bit, only just signed up and decided to post. I've been reading for a while and I still haven't found an answer to my question, but I think I still know the answer.

I have all the components I need to build my system sitting right in front of me. The only thing I don't have, is the MOSFET heatsinks for the exposed VRMs. I have a pair of Thermaltake Spirit II NB/SB coolers, but I was wondering if it was absolutely mandatory to have some form of cooling for the VRMs, or if I could get away with it for a few days. I plan to let the system sort of burn in before I start overclocking, so I won't be putting any stress on the system aside from installing software and some gaming.

You're taking your chances without anything on them.
If I remember correctly, somebody fried one that way. I can't remember how much they were stressing it or for how long.

Welcome to Overclock.net
Thanks for the welcome.

Would it be an idea to just use the stock heatsinks? I could simply clamp, cut then solder shut the heat pipes. I just don't know how that will affet the usefulness of the heatsinks. I know it voids the warranty but I'm used to it after years of overclocking and modding.
