Hey all. I've got what I believe is a fairly poor E6420 for OC'ing. Previously I could never get 3.2ghz stable without resorting to 1.5v+ which just gets too hot for my stock cool. Now, I'm not going to rush out and buy an afetrmarket cooler any time soon so I'd like some help. I recently Upgraded my bios from 401 to 608 which seems to have helped. But so far I can get 2.66ghz stable at 1.3v. And Previously 3ghz took 1.39v, but anything after 3ghz took majoy voltage increases. What I dont get is that anything below 3ghz works with nice low voltages. But after that it starts need 0.1 extra for another 200mhz. Has anybody got any ideas thatd help me out?
