. I would like to run at 400 or 450, but I dont think I can. I've tried the NB voltage from 1.43v to 1.65v, nothing helps. I think the comfortable max for this Q6600 is 3.5GHz with 1.44v vcore (I shouldnt complain, it is still a decent OC).
Ouch man that kinsa sucks. I take it you have a fairly high VID?
In other news, I've hit my first error folding. It took much longer than before, and I think that it may be due to Vdimm being set very low, well below the stock voltage for my modules.
Here are voltages as currently set: Vcore=1.425V, droop=1.400V; VPLL=1.60V; VNB=1.49V; VDIMM=1.80V(OV to 1.92V); VFSBT=1.40V; VSB=1.050V; SB1.5V=1.5V; Loadline Calibration=ENABLE; CPUGTL= 0.67x; NBGTL=0.63x; DRAMREF=DDRREF. Since things are looking stable, I may just try see if I can lower my voltages some. Note DRAMREF should fall between 1.05 and 1.15V when monitored in windows.
Current RAM timings are stock 4-4-4-14 tRFC=40 2T @ 800MHz. This makes me pretty happy with these 2x2Gb sticks as stock voltage is 2.2V, and Irunning 1.92V, the lowest my board will go, yielded some pretty positive results.
