unclocked E6600 vcore

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
the temp on my E6600 has always been pretty high (48-51 idle(i have stock cooling by the way)), but i always presumed it was because my ambient temp was pretty high. i've noticed people talking about high vcore being a reason for cpu's getting hot and was wondering what my vcore shoud be?

it is currently 1.34v according to speedfan.

1.35v is stock or atleast that is what it says on my bros box
Your ambient temps must be crazy if your cpu is running at 48-51c idle
I would reseat the HSF if I were you

1.3525v is max official vcore for the e6600 .. on stock you should be able to run it between 0.9xv and 1.33v but this will depend on your CPU. best advice i can give is to start from 1.34 and lower the vcoe by one notch and run orthos to see if you are stable and repeat this untill you reach your lowest operating volatge.

well i wear shorts and t-shirt in here all year round. even if i leave my window and door open and get a nice draught going it only ever drops to about 48. i have a feeling i remember it being lower but i may be wrong. i would reseat it but i have a tuniq on the way (if it ever comes into stock in the place theat sells them in england) so i'll just stick that on and see what happens.

I believe you're on stock heat sink? If so, then there's no need to remount it. Even on my lapped CPU and stock cooling, I idle at 50C in the vcore is set on Auto or 1.35vcore.

Seeing that you are running at stock speed. You should be able to run it at 1.28vcore with no sweat. I would notch it down from 1.35 to 1.30vcore. If your computer is still running, notch it down to 1.28. Though, I believe you can run 1.24vcore at 2.4GHz.

If by any chance that your computer does not turn on after any overclocking or undervolting, please do the following.

Resetting CMOS: -
1. Locate a circular silver battery on your motherboard
2. Remove that battery
3. Let it sit without the battery up to a minute or more
4. Put back in the battery and boot back up.

Resetting CMOS clears your BIOs and sets it back into factory default.

cool, i'll try lowering my vcore a bit and see what happens. knowing my luck as soon as i have it as low and stable as it will get my new cooler will arrive (i know this is a god thing but it'll seem like i've wasted my time)

Are you sure your temp readings are accurate? Here is a good thread on that...http://tinyurl.com/3959pt

Try Coretemps, TAT, and speedfan. Remember your CPU temp cannot be higher than your core temps. It should be 10-15C lower than core1 and core2.

Here's a good thread on using a tool called Crystal CPUID to directly read the e6600 digital temp sesnor. http://tinyurl.com/2lznbv. Try it and compare to Coretemp, etc.

Also, as a temp reading test you can set your multiplier to 6, FSB to 200 mhz, lower your vCore to 1.2 or so, and turn your fans to high. Let the PC cool down, boot to windows and take a temp reading. At those low voltages, your CPU should be a few degrees above ambient. If not, then your mobo is reporting the wrong temps - my Asus mobo does if PECI is disabled.

Or you could just short the CMOS pins and it'll take like 2 seconds...
