Ok, so I have come to realize that obtaining 3.6GHz might be a bit out of reach given the MASSIVE Vdroop i'm facing. I'm currently running 3.42GHz with 1.5125 set in BIOS for Vcore which equates to 1.456 Idle, and drops even further to 1.392 under 100% load. Thats a Vdroop of 0.1205 . I did manage to boot to windows with 3.6 set, however as soon as Prime was started she restarts. Trying to get some stability @ 3.42, and maybe tighten up my RAM timings a tad, does anyone out there have my ram and some config specs?

Ok, Iv'e been working alot the past few days and finally got time to run a test. Using OCCT for short 1 hour runs.... Passed 1 hour RAM/CPU blend test with the settings in my above post. RAM was also tightened to 4-4-4-12 . I'm almost 100% sure I can make 3.42 GHz stable, I will have to read alot more in depth about the Q6600 max Vcore settings, and TJmax, I know that it is supposed to be 90c. If I can get enough confidence and solid stability at 3.42, I'll start the push towards 3.6

P.S. Sure would like someone to post with me, I know this board is old and Vdroops like a granny, but come on people, throw me a confidence post!

I just increase vcore until my chip is at the voltage I want while under vdroop. Problem solved.

Probably not the best way of getting around these things, but hey, I haven't killed anything yet.

Nice going on your current OC though, nothing to be ashamed of... is that a G0 or a B3?
post #3875 of 4644
G0, what is the most you have ran your chip @ Idle? 1.55 Vcore is the maximum correct?

Avacado I gave my htps (6750) a small boost to 3.2 and was getting instability every few weeks. The system runs 24/7 folding and htpc duties. I had a bad batch of crucial ballistics but didn't want to rma them yet so I loosened the timeings up and when I switched the mem out after a few weeks same problem. A bump in the chipset voltage seems to have cured it.

If need be i'll add some voltage to the MCH and FSB, however I still have the stock HSF on the NB due to the massiveness of my Tuniq. I'm just looking forward to getting a newer more stable board with less Vdroop.

I've ran mine at 1.6v, but it was probably around 1.55v after vdroop. The next jump up was 1.8v, and I wasn't going there on air cooling.

So I just got an e8400, and I'm still using my Thermalright XP-120 Review here

Do you guys think I can do 4.0 ghz with this? I'm thinking 3.6 should be doable on stock voltage, so that's probably the first thing I'll do.

Also, I do gotta wonder about power consumption, is it a huge jump from stock to 3.6 or 4.0?
post #3880 of 4644
I'm running into an odd problem with my DS3L since I upgraded from an E8400 to a Q9550. I've got 2x2MB of G.Skill DDR2-1000 memory.

When I attempt to overclock the CPU with an FSB of 400 (from 333) using the default CPU multiplier of 8.5 and a memory multiplier of 2 (for a memory setting of 800Mhz), the system fails to boot properly and resets back to the default speed of 8.5x333.

If I set the memory multiplier to Auto with the FSB at 400 and the CPU multiplier at 8.5, it boots up successfully with the memory at 960Mhz (2.4 multiplier)! If I try to force the memory multiplier down to 2 (using the same timings), it will not boot successfully.

I'd like to lock in memory at 800Mhz so that I can set relaxed timings and use some additional DDR2 memory at "stock" memory speeds. However, I cannot even force the G. Skill to run properly on this board at the slower speed.

It's not a CPU limitation, since it works with the same voltage and settings with the higher memory clock (960) but not the lower (800).

Any ideas?
