1.55-1.6 vcore safe?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey, so im trying to get my e6600 stable at 3.6ghz and right now im at 1.56 vcore and it's still failing orthos at around 2 minutes. When i run at 1.5-1.55v on orthos i never exceed 50-53C. Is it a bad idea to push the vcore even more and hope for a stable overclock. If i keep the temps below 60C does the vcore even matter? Some clarification would be great, thanks guys.

I wouldnt push the vcore past 1,5v, but im sure others will say that vcore is fine if the temps are good.

I run 1.5625v on my CPU when weather permits and also loaded around 50C. No problems at all.

Yea you're fine. Don't let it pass 1.6vcore and/or 60C though! That's a combination for death!

i upped the voltage to 1.575 and got it stable for around 16 minutes, it failed at 17. Is this good enough for everyday use or should i bump the voltage even more?

I dont like to push mine past 1.55 but as you can see everyone is different.
If your temps are good then I see no problem benching with that high Vcore, but would not run 24/7 with it past 1.50-1.53

Yeah I would say that was also a bit high on air cooling.

Take a read of this thread: http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...term-1-5v.html

We discussed this a few days ago

It's different for individual chips. At those voltages, your rig is susceptible to have problems and there may be detrimental effects on your overall rig's OC and stability. Don't push it so high. Use your own judgment.
