A good pick up on the Tjunction / Speedfan and Core Temps, will be worth knowing the final outcome.

EDIT:

Seems that the only current reliabel core measure is Core Temp 0.95 but running it in Delta mode ... see extract from unclewebb at XS

Quote:
Anyone interested in an absolute temperature can use CoreTemp 0.95 and will get a realistic looking load temperature number but it is not documented and may or may not be 100% accurate.

What is fully documented by Intel is the DTS. It provides accurate temperature information that is relative to the thermal throttling point for any Core based processor. If you use CoreTemp 0.95 and set it to "Show Delta to Tjunction", you will be able to read the DTS in real time. If you do this, it doesn't matter what the real TjMax is and it doesn't matter what changes Intel made to the latest G0 steppings. The information returned by the DTS did not change.

I was reading this thread http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...d-failure.html the the FSB 400 wall was due to the limitations 680i chipset for Quads with 'locked' multi. That leaves choices of doing a Vmod on the mobo, getting an eXtreme Quad, or waiting for the newer chipsets from Nvidia and Intel. Given these limitions does make sense to buy a Q6600 or Xeon 3220 at all?

Depending on what board you have , another possible source of limitation, like I have, is the C19A Northbridge on my P5N32-SLi Premium. Solid board, bad overclocker.

It does make sense regardless if you need the computing power. The vMod has also been successful with a few people, though I can't guide you on that part.

The limitations won't hold you back from a decent Quad Core Overclock.

Absolutely. A few people might say different. I know personally that I was able to see 200mhz more out of my B3 Q6600 when I upgraded to the P35 Gigabyte board.

Something I couldn't even get to post on the 965P.

So, heres a question for the forum...

- Who here is gonna be the first one to do the GTLv mod on their mobo, to test for added FSB stability?

I know the P5W, 680i and Intel 'axe' are a few of the mobo's that have identified mods for GTLv adjustments.. I have been asked by two forum members to mod their 680i's for them, but was considering purchasing a 'spare' mobo to do the mod on first and perform some tests. In my opinion, it is an advanced mod, but not too risky.

-thoughts?

Ha, just noticed this thread. Good idea Audi, there's been a lot of random Q6600 threads popping up randomly, this should keep down the clutter and make it easier for those who are just getting into tho joy of quad core overclocking.

I noticed a question about whether a PA120.2 would be enough to cool a Q6600, and the answer is yes. Although if you're planning on adding other components to the loop (GPU, NB, etc.) I would recommend the PA120.3.

Did I mention this summer heat is getting nuts! I've got 30C ambient in my room and my rad is warm to the touch...still crunching away at 100% load though!

suggestion! buy my used p5n32-e sli 680i to practice on =o)


the revised a1/t1 680i evga boards seem to be doing fine right now. I've dropped to 8x on my q6600 just so I can run a higher FSB and still hit 3.8ghz. thats 1900 QDR and 475fsb. system seems to be much more responsive and faster than the 9x 1700 QDR and 425fsb.
