post #11 of 26
y dont you try to lower v-core im at 3.2 a 400x8 my v-core is1.325 and load after 3 hours is 50,i lowered my x down seems to o/c better and more stable

I have a bad week. If I lower my voltage anymore the chip becomes unstable.

$7.00/wk is cheap overclocking insurance. If a dollar a day is too steep for you cut it in half. Even 50 cents a day ($3.50/wk) will put you a long way toward an equal or better replacement after a year.

Haha, thats one way to do it.

Sorry to highjack the thread, so, my chip, at 2.7 and 1.225V will last a good amount of time? Longer than at stock?

No..its till running beyond its intended speed, which does or can do damage as well. Most of the time, voltage is the culprit though...

If you got it use it-> my e6700 has been around for a year now @ 1.46v or better for 24/7 use. The only time I shut it off is to upgrade.
post #16 of 26
I got my E6600 to 3.4ghz with voltage set on auto and its runnin 1.408v according to CPU-Z. its on a 1511 fsb with x9 multi. I've orthos for 10 hrs and also ran CPU stability test with no errors. Try to bump it to 3.4... i think 3.2 is a little buggy... 3.2 for me BSOD's like no tomorrow but 3.4 is fine.

good job...your more than likely going to smoke your cpu if you keep going.

Using 'auto' will force the mobo to scale the voltages up with the FSB...thats bad, in case you were wondering. You dont need 1.4vcore to run 3.2ghz..probably not even at 3.4ghz... I use 1.4v for 3.6ghz and I have a e6700 which uses more vcore than other e6xxx cpu's...

If you dont set things manually, you are just asking for high temps and high loads on your PSU. Increasing the vcore on a cpu from 1.4-1.44v can increase the power drawn from your PSU, by ~30W depending on CPU and mobo. Setting thngs manually assures you the lowest voltage setting possible for stable operation.

I cant go any higher, so, what the hell, why not, sure it's a like, 66% overclock or something like that, I'm not sure, but it's voltage is over .1V less. it booted at stock at .9V

^^sounds like you have both, a very good CPU and a very bad mobo vdroop. Fixing the later, will help you maintain a lower vcore, as the voltage wont fluctuate as much.

Like CL3P20 have said above, you should manually set your vcore. . 1.4vcore is high for 3.4GHz, what I would do is manually set it to 1.4vcore, and start undervolting one notch down at a time. Then boot into desktop, run some stability test and then go undervolt again.

I can do 3.4GHz with 1.36vcore.

Keep in mind that not all chips are the same.
