Pretty sure I friend my 5-week Old Q6600 . . .

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 


I think I may have done it this time.

I got my Q6600 about 5 weeks ago.

Since then I've been running it at an even 1.50v @ 3.42GHz (though when I first got it it didn't require as many volts to go that fast -- but about a week later I had to up it from 1.47v to 1.50v to keep it stable).

With AC Pro 7 I hit MAX LOAD temps of 66C, but unless I'm stress testing, it never tops 61C while gaming and idles around 41C.

Anyway, I'm getting all kinds of crazy BSODs. So I put everything back on the mobo back to "auto." STill BSODs. So I ran P95 blend test (the one that stresses the memory b/c I thought it was the memory at firs). This came out fine - was stable for 2 hours.

Then I did "Max heat max power" which really pushes the CPU, and at stock speeds and stock voltage I had an error wihtin 5 minutes. I tried again after restarting, and same thing within 5 minutes. (same core failed each time too).

Is my CPU shot? If so, who do I call to see if Intel will warranty it (it was an OEM chip)? If they don't, well then it might be time for a Q9450.

Is there anything else it could be?

P.S. I have an SLACR G0

OK, set all to stock. Run a bootable memtest with one stick at a time. See if it passes 3 passes. If both sticks pass, it may be the CPU. I do not think that voltage nor that temp is high enough to fry a CPU. I am willing to bet it is either RAM or PSU.


edit: Also, make sure you reset CMOS as well.

edit2: Also make sure you are setting the RAM voltage to stock in BIOS. 2.2v I believe.

My only issue is that it's the same core over and over again that fails.

resetting CMOS is an interesting idea. I'll do that now and see where it takes me.

I reset the CMOS. I also loosened the memory timings from 2-5-5-5-15 to 2-5-6-6-18 just in case that was the issue.

Additionally, I HAD A FAILURE ON A DIFFERENT CORE! This means it might not be the CPU afterall . . .

remarkably, resetting the CMOS and then loosening the memory timings seemed to do the trick

Thank you!
