E6600 @ 3300MHz, what is the average Vcore at this speed?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Well it's pretty much summer here, the house gets to 81 F during the day, and my fan controller's temperature sensor says that the air being sucked into the case is 28.1C.

I do not think that running it at 3600MHz or even 3500MHz with the 1.5125 and 1.5375 vcore respectively, is a good idea, especially since i am leaving this baby on for days while downloading, folding, and gaming. Not to mention i will most likely be selling this rig before i head of to college, so i can fund my full tower water cooled penryn build

I'm not a newb, i just never played around in the 3300MHz area, so i don't know what vcore i should test out first. I am just hoping maybe i can save an hour or two of fiddling around in the BIOS for the perfect setting.

My E6600 is L632A740 FYI.

I'm not looking for an exact answer, just a rough estimate, what does it take you to get to 3300MHz?


And btw how high do you guys think an E6600 will go on stock voltage? Hell i don't even remember what stock voltage for this is lol. What is the stock voltage for E6600?

For 3.3Ghz and that stepping, use 1.35v as your bios setting. It should be stable or put it up one small notch. Stock voltage is 1.325v.

I think the stock voltage can go a lot less than 1.325, My 680i boots up to like 1.2v at 2.4ghz.

It seems you can hit a lot of frequencies around 1.3v. I can do 3.2 @ 1.3v, I don't think I've needed more than 1.4v to do up to 3.6ghz

Lucky :]

It takes me 1.5375 to get to 3.6, and that isn't stable in orthos for more than like 45 min

I meant the official stock voltage, according to Intel. Of course you can undervolt it to like 1.15- 1.17v at 2.4Ghz with that stepping.

L632A mhill2029 3.4@1.33 3.6@1.42v

mhill might have the answer you're looking for, but judging by his OC results, 1.34 should be just fine for 3300mhz, and then you can test lower volts later on from there. You know, while you're out shopping or something.

So yeah, random update.

Took me like 1.3625 or 1.375 vcore to get it to run stable at 3200MHz.
Can't remember which.

Haven't done any long term orthos testing, i'll probably do that tonight or tomorrow.
