I'm quite the OC noob myself, but looking at that pic, is there only one instance of Orthos running? There's a big spread between core temps as well, which suggests only two of the cores are being loaded, not all four. I thought you needed two instances of Orthos to hit all four cores on a quad, correct?

As 10acjed suggested, I would get Prime95, because that will hit all four cores in one instance.

Again, I'm new at this myself, so someone please check my work...

heres my orthos result.

2 orthos simultaneously running ang each designated at 2 cores. i set core 0,2 on 1 orthos and 1,3 on other instances..
i guess my rig is happy at 3.2

still running prime95 by now, ill post a screenshots after 6hrs.

thanks for the helpful inputs guys.

Looks really good, I'd let the temps slide up a bit to 55ish, and not overclock beyond that. Hell of a good start.

as i pushed the fsb i went up to 3.6ghz @ 1.40v with this setup and ran orthos for 25mins without any consequences. but ill stay with 3.2, im afraid i might fry my q6600 soon or should i say shorten the life of my q6600.

ill recommend this board to anybody hu plans to buy a performance/price mobo. Gigabyte EP35 DS4 is really a competitive board... ive been up lto 3.6Ghz with my quad without any probs.

prime95 torture test still in progress, ill post some soon

what sort of temps were you seeing at 3.6? I peak at about 60C core at 3.4. Looks like you're there at 3.2, is that right? I'm not familiar with HW monitor, but it looks like it gives a min, max and average temp over the course of the monitoring period, is that right?

at 3.6 (400x9) i ran orthos (2 instances, one very 2 threads) and HWmonitor displays a max temp of 57C.. but im not gonna use that 3.6, 1.4 vcore for me is scarry, i just pushed it to its limit thats why i tried tweaking for 3.6. and i believe it could go higher.

3.6 @ 1.4 is impressive, you must have a good stepping.
