I wish I had your chip thats for sure.
I've had that discussion with lottsol as well

My VID is 1.275. Bringing the BIOS up high enough for my actual VCORE to be 1.48 still doesn't make my processor stable under torture test at 400x9. I'm not very comfortable going much higher, so I'm currently sitting at 400 x 8 at 1.325 Vcore for 100% stability and highest 1:1 possible at a multiplier of 8.

Speaking of which, why is the voltage different from idle and load? And what are the safe max voltages with all things considered, like max volts in bios VS. max volts cpu-z idle/load? I've read 1.45ish on air is about as far as you'd want to go but.....I just can't figure out how to get this cpu over 3.0!

G'night y'all!
Voltage is different between idle and load due to the true defintion of vdroop. It's a feature that Intel has designed into the actual electrical design of the processor that causes it to limit the current through the processor while under load.

I'm currently in the same situation you are, where it seems no matter the Vcore (my safe limits, anyway) I can't get stable at 400x9. At 400x8, 1.325 actual vcore is fine, but 400x9, 1.48 vcore isn't stable in a torture test.

the higher the timings you set, the more stable your processor may become. I've seen people who loosen them up to pretty ridiculous numbers, actually. It's just a matter of the RAM being stable with the ratios you set as well.

Generally speaking, on my board, VCORE is actually 0.045v lower than Bios VCORE. And as for the other measurements being off, my DDRv is usually about 0.02v less than the bios setting.

Im kinda disappointed to be honest cuz i had a 955X Platinum that kicked ass. But that aside, i have resolved myself to get this board if it will do what i want to do.
Honestly, I've seen a lot of people who have been able to do it, I just haven't really conversed with them much. Most of the regulars on this thread don't run 500FSB, but I know its possible.

VDIMM on my board is usually 0.02v less than bios settings.

Thanks for the advice Coelacanth!
~justadude
I would definately check the native vdimm on the stick first. Then, for safe measure, search around and feel out what people have been able to overvolt them to comfortably before doing too much addition to the voltage.

At first I put the system voltage thing to auto and when I bumped it to 366FSB my max temp went up to 70c:O
So I guess the thing to do is get as much FSB with as little of vcore as possible, right?
I'm @ 400fsb 1.175 vcore
Oh yeah, I was @ 1.83v DDR stock, and added +.3 since my ddr is rated at 2.2v, but it only went up to 2.0... so I bumped it +.4v and it's only at 2.06v now... Is that from voltage drop? do I need to keep giving it more?
I'd check with another program to see if that's the proper vDimm reading. It may be your memory trying to regulate itself with the overvoltage. AUTO definately isn't safe, because you don't know exactly what it's doing and it probably will add more voltage to places you don't need it.

So you are saying that the VDimm set in the bios ex +.4 = 2.2volts is actually 2 volts after droop? I didnt know the memory droops, please explain if I am wrong....

Also is 1.55v safe for a q6600 if your temps are low 60c load and 30c idle?

Really shouldn't go over 1.5V. You must have some insane cooling if you're still under 60C load at that voltage.

Is it 1.55V in BIOS or actual (read in CPU-Z)?

its 1.52vcore idle in cpuz
its 1.46vcore load in cpuz

in the bios it is set at 1.56vcore

No, mine is off by 0.02. So if I set +0.2v in BIOS, then my actual is 1.98v.

1.5 is the highest specification by Intel, so you're no no man's land now. There is a point where regardless of temperature you can damage your processor with voltage. On the other hand, there are several people who run it at like 1.56vcore.

Is that load temp meaning the computer is busy, or an actual torture test? Actual torture tests can surprise you as to how hot the processor can actually get.
