Q6600 go steeping on water?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
A top wc setup will easily run over $200 or even $300. A Tuniq Tower 120 Ultra under $60. I would think that wc over air on avg would be about a 10 to 15 deg cooler maybe slightly more. So how much more of an oc?

Not sure if it would be 10-15C different on a quad, I think more 5-10. Almost all of the CPU blocks are not designed for quads.

From what I can tell Air or Water, most quad users do not get above 3.2GHz and stable, I've seen a few run 3.4 and 3.5 with high end water or phase. Minus audi on this forum.. He has a very good chip. =/

I think anyone that is running any higher is probably overvolting the processor.

However the G0 stepping supposely requires alot less volts so maybe you could get 3.5 or higher, but I wouldn't count on it.

I'd probably say 3.2->3.5 with water. Quads are pretty hot. Anything after 3.2GHz on mine requires some serious voltage.

i know someone who overclocked their Q6600 on a $500 watercooling setup and their cpu has idles temps of 44-46C at 3.4ghz

Ive seen a couple reviews where someone got a Q6600 when the P5k first came out get to 3.8ghz on air... I bookmarked it, and kept it so I can follow a similar method. You probably wont get this high, but who knows, this review shows it IS possible.. http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=144199

Its about 3/4 of the way down the page, trust me it'll save some searching

Also: I did a closer look at the article, it says something about Corsair Hydrocool 200EX 1/4" OD tubing. So I guess he does use watercooling, but definitely nothing like what someone here would use: we'd go much larger on the tubing than that.

I have one coming in Aug I hope from TankGuys. My plans are to use my Lian Li 1200 Plus I've yet to start modding for this build. This will be my main rig so I want to go all out... but not too crazy. The Quad will be my first piece of hardware not including the Lian Li. ........wow, I sure do have a lot of stuff to get.

When I first got my Q6600 I tested the stock HSF vs my old air cooling vs my current water cooling.

Stock HSF, 2400 MHz @ 1.2625V:



Big Typhoon :



Fuzion + PA120.3 :

The maximum you could go with a high-end Air Cooler would be 3.2GHz, however, with a $300 Water Cooling Loop, that is dedicated to your CPU, I would except 3.4GHz (or a 5-10 drop at 3.2GHz versus an Air Cooler).

You think so? I'd expect a little more on air and wc. This is go stepping we're talking about and from what I've read you are conservative with your numbers.
