First overclock

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well after reading afew guides and doing much surfing I finally got the balls to try and OC. Now I just got a new build in today 780i Mobo and Q6600 CPU and right off I went from the stock 1066 to 1333 linked and synced then changed the core v from the .00 stock on all cores to .05 on all cores. These are the only changes I made and I'm a little worried by the temp readings in BIOS. The stock 1066 temps were around 70-75F then when at 1333 I'm getting CPU: 86F Board: 81F MCP: 113F Is that normal?!?!? I didn't think they would run that hot with a mild OC much less at the 70F range at stock clock speed. Any ideas what I may be seeing? Thanks in advance for the help.

Check your application of thermal compound. Too much = bad. That chip should not even get that hot on stock air cooling at those speeds.

Hmmm well if it is the thermal compound is there a way to remove excess? I didn't put it on myself...I have the V1 CPU cooling and shouldn't be seeing temps that high right? I did notice that when I uped the FSB to 1333 the CPU voltage changed automaticaly to 1.4v without me touching any of the voltages other then the core volts from the stock .00 to .05. I heard you had to change these to force the quads to work correctly but now I'm curious if that is really the case.

Well, you're gonna want to take all your voltages off auto and set them yourself. 1.4 is overkill for anything under 2.8 - 3.0 IMO.

However, 86F is not too hot, that's only what in celsius, 27? Most folks reference their celsius temps...

Most folks also idle at around 35 - 40C, and stay under 60C in extreme load. Some are more daring, others more conservative.

Ahhh ok I was refering to F not C. I dropped everything back down to stock settings to see what happens and they seem to have gone down. Now what about the Lane voltages on the cores? does setting them to .05 do anything or should I leave them at .00?

Well after playing around some I thought I had a good OC...

Multi: 9x
QDR: 1333MHz
Memory: Linked & Synced (666.7MHz)
CPU vcore: 1.30625
CPU FSB: 1.3v
GTLVREF Lane voltages: All at +05mv (still unsure if this does anything)
All other voltages on auto
Disabled speed step, Thermal cont, CIE, and all spread spect settings.

I noticed after post that without touching the RAM it was reading as 5-5-5-15 1T while previously it was set to 2T. Is that due to link and sync?

CPUID #s Under load (Prime95)

CPU: 1.27v (after Vdroop, set to 1.306v in BIOS)
+12v: 10.43 (should I be worried about only getting this as peak out on full load?)
AVCC: 3.25v
+3.3v: 3.25v
VIN1: 1.30v
+5v: 4.73v
VIN3: 1.81v

Core temps: 50c/50c/47c/47c

I assumed these were good settings since I didn't really have to mess around with much and I want to keep my hardware for a long while still. After running 3 hours of Prime95 with no errors I decided to real world test it with some COD4. After about 1-1 1/2 hours of continuous play I got a BSOD with "Memory management" error. I never touched the memory other then to link and sync it but left the rest alone. I ran the memory diagnostics tool right after and didn't get any errors reported. I'm rather worried now and was wondering if anyone could offer any tips on how to resolve it. I was thinking of upping the CPU volts again but I didn't think that would make a difference to the RAM. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Im new to this stuff, but i may have a valid point...:S How long has your stock cpu and fan been installed/running for? Your poor temps may be caused by the stock thermal paste not melting yet. If you think this is the case, try loading the cpu for a while with some of the programs, or play crysis.....

Poor temps? The Q6600 G0 can go up to 70c from what I hear so would those be poor peak temps under Prime95?

The lower your temps the better when stress testing. On a good cooler and average to above average CPU you should reach your limits on temperatures at around 3.6 Ghz.

Well I guess the "memory management" error was a fluke since I have not gotten it again. I used the above settings and bumped up the Vcore to 1.325 and CPU FSB to 1.3v and got a stable Prime 95 test...then I went to play COD4 and it keeps rebooting after about 1-2 hours of continuous play. CPU-Z says I have a VID of 1.3125 so I'm really worried about bumping the vcore up more. That does bring up a good point however...after vdrop I got 1.29 (CPUID) so what matters more to keep in line with the VID, the BIOS setting or the voltage after vdrop? When all is said and done could it be a conflict with COD4 (considering a stable Prime95) or my OC?
