Whats a good VID for a quad - Page 5

post #41 of 42
Ugh 1.3250v VID. Sucks, I wanted to hit 3.6ghz, but I believe it is impossible without a major risk of frying the CPU.

I'm seeing more and more people run their Q6600's slightly over the rated voltage (especially with higher VID). VID confuses me because chips with lower VID's don't OC better imo. The OC to the same frequency under lower voltage but the temps are usually the same or worse.

65nm is not as sensitive to voltage as the early 45nm chips have been. Push your CPU as high as you can and keep your temps under 65C (I like to stay under 60C) and you should be fine.
