So my E6600 just arrived...

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Straight from newegg. Gotta love the egg!

It's an L631F577 (good/bad/no idea?), so I'll try to test it out and see where I can go with this puppy. I'll be in and out all evening testing and tweaking

Edit: For cleaning off the AS5 on my current chip/heatsink, will 70% isopropyl work? Or will I need to pick up 91% or better?

70% works fine. That's what I've always used

i checked my week list and i didn't see your week (mine is kind of old) soo no idea.

as for the alcohol 70% will work fine.
post #4 of 18
any rubbing alcohol is fine, I don't even use alcohol, I just keep wiping it w/ napkins till all the gunk is off.

Ok, so the first boot was at 3.6GHz just to see if it would even post. Suffice to say, it did.

I left all my other settings from my E6300 the same, and only changed the vcore and fsb termination voltages to auto. Took the fsb from 445 to 400, and booted. I'll definitely need better cooling though, 44C idle, 68C load with a non-lapped Thermalright Ultra90 heatsink. Got a 55.1CFM fan pulling air through the heatsink and back out the exhaust. I'll update with stability results, or any changes if unstable.

Currently reported voltages in cpu-z under load: 1.175v

CPU-Z doesn't give accurate voltage reports.

What did you set it at in Bios?

3.6 is ttttooaaassttyyy.

I just left the cpu voltages at auto, to see if I even needed to overvolt @ 3.6GHz. CoreTemp v0.94 reports the default voltage for my cpu as 1.2875v. That's fairly accurate, right?

Windows gives me so many unhandled exception errors. Time to lower the clocks a bit until I get better cooling. Though it does post at 3.6GHz, I'd like to push farther than that on a new heatsink.

Actually, check the OC list. 31F is close enough to 30F to be decent!

I know that Knitelife's 49G is ridiculous like that so you MIGHT actually be loading up at low voltages!

You should manually set them to make sure, though.

Ahh I remember this day (7 days ago), on the morning, one day after I missed the 1st delivery, installed it, all happy, went in BIOS and..... TEMPS 60C ZOMG!!!! My Heastink is too big and doesn't sit properly on the CPU due to the north bridge heatsink. I have a 1.4V for both the CPU and FSB (because my FSB is running at 1333MHz)
