that is part of your problem. usually the mobo on auto will give mroe then enough voltage to run the cpu. sure it should be stable but then again it will also usually run way hotter then needed because that extra voltage. this could also explin why your heat jumped a bit. on auto if you raise the cpu speed it starts bumping up the voltage. more and more. verify your volts using cpu-z

best thing to do though is use manual voltage adjustments. that way you are only using what you need and not putting the rest into waste.
also you might need to reseat your heat sinks as I believe you either have too much or too little thermal paste.

I will try reseating the heatsinks.

Since you are also using e6600, can you tell me what voltage you are using currently after you overclocked it?

I need a reference.

Out of curiousity, have him run CPU-Z to show what auto vcore can set the voltage to.

Just to give you a heads up, what one E6600 can OC to might not be what another can OC to. For example, my E6600 runs at 3.24GHz on 1.22v vcore, and at stock 2.4GHz at 0.97v vcore. But my friend's E6600 needs 1.45v vcore just to run 3.2GHz.

It's constantly changing from 1.258V to 1.264V during the CPU stress test - Orthos.

Weirdly, it sometimes bumps itself up to 1.32 V.

to the poster mind going up to userCP at the top and filling in your system specs. that could help alittle also.

just to further back that up I had to use 1.3125v to get 3.2ghz.

Yeah it'll do that. Remember, not every E6600 is the same. Your friends ambient room temperature could be 10c different to yours, my brothers E6600 won't clock worth anything because his room gets too hot.

I think I should stick with the crappy 2.5 ghz processor.

Still, running at 66 Celcius on load freaks me out.

Did ambient temperature affect overclocking?

My room's temperature is about 35 Celsius and I seldom turn on the air conditioner.

Well the stock HSF is rubbish. Buy an aftermarket cooler such as the Arctic Freezer Pro.

I know your friend is running his at whatnot, but every CPU is different. At least you can then comfortably overclock without worrying too much.
