Q6600 G0 Stepping on phase?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Someone just made the exact same thread as this, only with phase replaced with water, so I decided to ask it too, as this is the setup I'll be going with. How much would I be able to oc a Q6600 G0 Stepping on a vapochill phase? I don't mind if it involves overvolting a bit.

Probably 4ghz stable. Remember, commercial phase isn't meant to handle quad core heat outputs.

Depends really. As you have scene some people getting close to 4 ghz with air cooling allthough probably not stable. It depends on what volts you will be running as these are lower watt cpu's and less heatoutput until you ramp up the volts to it. I would talk to knitelife since hes got several quads that were under unmodded phase systems doing just fine at 4.0ghz or higher.

If you get a golden chip I would say 4.0 to 4.4ghz and a normal to subpar chip 3.8 to 4.0.

But until you get one and try it out theres no telling what you will get.

I think that G0 stepping will help out more for those that are OCing with water or air. Until they are released, I can't be sure. From what I understand, the new stepping should allow for less vcore to hit a particular OC. The chip itself will still likely produce the same amount of heat at any give vcore, the question will be what speed you can hit with that vcore.

4Ghz should be doable with or without G0 stepping. Above that will depend on a lot of factors, like any other OC. I have hit 4.5Ghz on the current stepping, but that is not stable enough for 24/7 usage. I have however run 3 of my chips on phase at ~4.1 completely stable folding 24/7.

I see you have a Vapochill, or are getting one. I have been running mine for 4 months with quads and have not had any issue. Mine has handled it fine. I do however run motherboards that are know for OCing quads easily which I think helps.

That is some good info. As I have a "normal" Q6600 that seems capable of more than I am asking I imagine it might be possible to match Knitelife's OC...but since I am not likely to rush out and buy another if I toast it I am content to loaf along around 3.2.

I noticed that although the chip runs right up to 3.2 at stock Vcore that anything beyond that (just like my E6600) need a lot more finesse for success. it is more than just ramping Vcore--I think the chipset voltages have a lot to do with it...although the P5K is full of surprizes and does not seem to need much voltage to perform. And chipset voltage makes heat in places the phase does not chill..which means more work and some sort of active cooling to get a passively cooled mobo like this to perform.

Even at 3.2 on LC I am seeing mobo temps in a well ventilated case within 2-3C of the threshold for the board (45C)

well placed 120mm fans are your friend when using phase.

Vapochill's are the not the best phase units. I would recommend to any insane overclocking (with a Quad Core) to get a Custom Phase Unit that is optimized for Quad Core Usage.

But Vapochills are cheap.

Custom is a lot more expensive.

The man has at least 4 Quads! But, I agree, you have to draw the line somewhere... And, hell, 4.0GHz Quads are insane! I have my at 2.4GHz and it's overkill.
