post #11 of 77
Hey lasagna, I went to the 8 multi and i finally got passed that hole that wouldnt let me post above 3.3 on x9
I took my FSB to 1700 and 8 multi, which put my cpu frequency at 3.4.
I got it to post and i am getting BSOD's upon entering windows.
My voltage is set at like 1.32~1.34, i dont think i went over 1.34 because of the amount of times i was increasing voltage to try and get it stable. So i just gave up and went back to normal settings.
Bios speed settings turned green. Think i should go to 1.35 ?
Temps are like 40-44 C
I have not noticed the strap issue between 1200-1400 and on my normal stable settings my FSB sits at like 1450 i think.
But when i put the FSB to 1700 it started loading my startup programs in windows VERY QUICKLY ... lol ( i was like O.O ). Then BSOD hit.

Oh and regarding the Ram lasagna, i was reffered to this RAM from a friend of mine that owns his own PC shop for building gaming machines.
He assured me that he has been using mushkin for years.... They have a lifetime warranty and always overnight him more sticks any time he needs them.
Also on your Ram timings go to expert mode and make them 5,7,7,23 and that Ram can definatly handle overlocking, switch the freq from 800 to 1050 and my voltage i went from 1.95 to 2.0v

Hi, Arakasi!

Oh, I already have it in Expert mode, which is how I was able to manually set the ram to stock, and then 4 4 4 10. Seems okay at 4 4 4 10, but I haven't done any testing yet. I'm too busy playing on OCN.

So, what did you mean by the BIOS settings turned green? Maybe I just never noticed this. I'd try 1.35v and see if that allows you more. I hear that the q6600 can take a beating, whereas the e8400 is delicate (I guess this is regarding temps since people told me to watch the temps more than the voltage with my chip). Last time I checked, the q6600 was rated up to 1.5v.

Wow, this ram sounds better than I thought it was. I'm gonna have to try oc'ing the ram again. When I first set this system up, I went straight to 4 5 4 11 with 1050Mhz on 2.1v (since 2.1v is the stock for EPP - check the sticker! )

I don't know enough stuff about oc'ing to reply to the rest of what you said, but I'm also a slow learner (but once I get it, look out!)

Your Q6600 can run a 1.5v vcore. lasagna is running a 1.36v vcore because the new E8400s (wolfdales) cannot take any more due to the die shrink. Here are your Q6600 specs (note, heat will limit what vcore you run since it will increase with the voltage, so keep it under the max 71C when stress testing with Prime95):





BTW, what is your VID reported as in CoreTemp?

How were you able to load that page? I keep getting "Server too busy." And I didn't know I was at 1.36v because I can't go any higher. I just selected it and went with it.

The Wolfdales (E8400) has undegone a die shrink. It is now a 45nm chip, while the older dual cores and quad cores are 65nm. The die shrink has lowered the CPU's tolerance to voltage, so you must keep the wolfdales under 1.3625v vcore. Those who where running it over that ended up killing the chips. because of the lower vcore on the wofdales, they run a lot cooler. So it is actually hard to get them over there rated 74C with a aftermarket cooler when running 1.3625v.

The Q6600 on the otherhand generates a lot of heat and can get really hot with voltage increases. So while the CPU can handle 1.5v, the heat generated would be too much unless you have really good cooling. With water cooling, I could run a Q6600 comfortably with 1.44v vcore.

I have it saved in my photobucket account. I have so many references from threads I've posted on, I can just go into my photobucket and pull them up whenever I need them.

My Vid in core temp is 1.2250v

Well i finally got it into windows with NO Bsod's.
So im posting on 8multi 3.4 ... a full 1ghz OC

I started a prime95

Max temp was 62C under load after about 10min or so

But i recieved a hardware error on 1 core

[Sat Apr 12 16:58:47 2008]
FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.

I guess that means vcore should go up a little more ?

Oh lasagna im gunna try setting my Ram timings to what you have and see how i do. thanks for your tip, las*rep+*

Ya i use photobucket also.... i love it hehe

Try bumping your vcore 2 notches up. That should be enough. You also have a decent chip. With the lower vid (startup voltage programmed into the CPU at factory), you have the potential to OC high. Some people have QUADS WITH A vid OF 1.325V. So they need that much vcore to run at stock!


You might be able to get away with 400FSB (1600 QDR) with a 9 multi and 1.425v vcore...

I can't remember who, but somebody told me that it's possible to go up to 1.45, but 1.45, according to them and according to intel (but according to the person lol), is the extreme limit. They said that once 1.451 is hit, the chip basically dies.

But I think I'm going to lower it to 1.35 just to feel a little more comfortable.

I just bumped it 1 notch and ill try my full testing phase tonight.
I tried with 9 multi and i could not post at all no matter how high i took my vcore. It just wasnt stable.. It was through lasagna that i went with the 8 multi instead which has allowed me to finally post at a 1ghz OC @ 3.4

Oh and Lasagna i was gunna ask you about your ram timings

Did you leave it on the 2T per clock cycle ?
Or did you switch to 1T.

The person that told you that was Tricky. He has since trashed that E8400 since it was killed by that vcore. Since then, people have reported killing their E8400s with 1.38v and 1.4v vcore.

Here are some of the links:

Tricky Running 1.45v vcore: Oc/benchie: E8400 - Page 5 !!!

Tricky's chip no longer stable after 1.45v: E8400 Crapped out! YAY!!!!
