Ratt... I guess that's not good then.... I mean... well, you know what I mean, cause I think I know what you mean... WOMEN!

Did you guys see Ratt's case?!?!?! It is looking spectacular.

Ok, thanks for all your help so far guys. I have quake4 now running capped at 60fps due to vsync and it's constant. Although for some reason after I did a load it wasn't quite constant and was dropping down to 44fps but I think my board might have been getting a bit hot at that point and I have heard rumors of it doing weird things like that on load.
Anyway, long story short everything works now. The Nvidia control center was over riding my settings with ones that were slowing it down. All is well now though Thanks guys! Now I will start some over clocking

I just thought I should thank you guys for your excellent help.

I recently purchased a Thermalright HR-05 SLI and regular, both the IFX models, and Swiftech MC21's for the Mosfets.

Though mounting was a challenge, I had the SLI for the south bridge with an 80mm fan on it, and the north bridge had the regular model operating passively, with a Tuniq tower sideways drawing air over it.

My temps were (taken from an onboard sensor via everest with an ambient temperature of ~20 C)

TIM used for all tests: Arctic Silver 5.
e6400 3.0 ghz, 1.26 volts.
Idle: 44
Load: 50
System: 35 degree's

There is also a 40mm fan blowing on my north bridge for the original test.

Now with the stuff installed:
Idle: ~36 degree's
Load ~44 degree's
System: 26 degree's

Note, some of the change could be since I changed the orientation of my Tuniq tower, however I don't imagine that the effect was more than a degree or two.

Also, because of the 80mm fan, my GPU temperature dropped about 5 degree's C.

if it really starts to bother you, for example you're entering 1.45v in the bios and reporting like 1.40-1.41v, like mine did when i first got it, then you need to apply the 'pencil mod'. real easy and safe to do.

Heres how to do it if you need to: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=134100
Thanks again for the info.
It's not bothering me at all but I just wanted to know what to tell others when I'm reporting my vcore voltage. If Everest is indeed used for all values (core temps, cpu temp and voltages) then from now on I'll also stick to that.

I have the following specs:

Q6700 on the P5n32-E
Aquagate S1 Liquid CPU cooler
2 side mounted 120mm fans blowing on mobo/cpu
4gb Corsair XMS2 (cm2x1024-6400) rated at 5.5.5.12.2t at 1.9v (800mhz)
2 8800 Ultras in SLI

I am using the 1205 beta bios.

I tried the following and got an error on one core in prime95:

FSB@1280 (stock 1066) to hit 3.2ghz on the Q6700 (core multi locked so I have to up the fsb)

Voltages:
Vcore: 1.375
Memory V: 1.9 (as stated in memory specs)
HT V: 1.3
NB Core: 1.4
SB Core: 1.5
CPU VTT: 1.55

My memory timings are all set on default and I have the fsb/mem unlinked and the memory at 800mhz.

With this setup I was at about 40c idle on the cores and about 60-63c under load on prime95. I understand the Q6700 has a pretty high temp rating, so are load tems in the low 60s ok?

The error happened on one core after about 45 minutes running.

Can anyone recommend good settings for this CPU, etc. Also, is my memory able to take any overclocking?

Also, since I recently updated the bios, I did not have some of the items disabled this guide recommends in the bios (I did have them disabled before) - can some of these, if left on, cause errors when running prime and you are overclocked? I can disable all the items in this guide and retest later.

Thanks!

Hi. I just bought an E6750 (G0) for my wife's computer. Would I be totally insane if I wanted to trade my QX6700 (B3) for it to see how things go? Is that like a few baby steps forward and a huge step back, or not?

I have the q6700 on a striker and those temps aren't bad at all. Well at least if the ambient inside the tower is 35-40c. As for updating the bios a lot of people on this thread feel 1205 is awful and to go with 1203 instead. This made a vast improvement in the overclockability of one member who actually just did this (if you check back about 4 pages i believe). As for those values in the bios, I've found that the c1e and speedstepping didnt effect my overclock much after I found a good solid oc but I think hindered me quite a bit in beggining finding one. Not sure what other values you might be mentioning. I have my q6700 @ 1333 x10 with these volts stable 16hrs prime 95

as listed in bios options
vcore 1.36
mem 1.9
nb 1.25
1.2Ht 1.25
sb 1.5
cpu vtt 1.35

all rest on auto.

If you are only getting one error on p95 I'd say you are pretty close to finding stability. I personally had to bring my ht volts down from 1.35 to 1.25 to find stability even though I've found a lot of people contradict that it shouldnt matter. (my board is known to be a PIA)

Last month, I fried my NV 680i few days after vdroop mod. The vdroop mod could reduce the vdroop from 0.7V to 0.3V. Few days later I got a new one but could not get the system stable even at 3.2G (BSOD about 1 hour no matter it is idle or busy). I was not dare to do the pencil mod again. Reading from other forums that the TIM of VRM heatsink of NV680i could cause the system instable. I went out and got a tube of ASC. Took me 1 hours to clean up the old rubber like TIM and put ASC to it. At the same time, replace the TIM of SB and NB with AS5. After that, the rig is rock stable at 3.6G.

frying a board from applying the pencil mod is definitely do-able, however it means that you over-applied the 2B pencil. you should have noticed your voltage readings over-volting at idle and load and immediately removed the pencil. if your volts were still reporting lower after applying the mod, IE after the mod 1.45v was still reporting say 1.43v, then it wasnt the pencil mod that killed your board. unless you managed to get lead on the board itself or the wrong/incorrect resistor.

May be... last time i did pencil mod was due to my curiosity rather than any need as the system was stable and not very hot. So I just leave the current one as it is.
