Thinking of OC My C2D6600??? - Page 2

post #11 of 41
Thread Starter 
Been messing with overclocking and seem too got to 2.7ghz
link:http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=345938
Ran orthos for about 20 - 30 mins and was stable and was at 57c. Tell me am i doing everything rite or do i need to tweak somethings. But i am extremely happy that i oc this beast and have stopped for a bit and do some gaming .
Also this is using stock voltage and cooler, plus i cleared some unwanted items and moved some wires around and got better airflow

no it looks good so far, you really should consider upgrading to a good after market cooler. Its definately worth it even if you're not serious about overclocking, you might be in the future when you realise what you can do with c2d and your motherboard.

the benefits of good cooling are many, and i cant think of any drawbacks.

Id say keep going, got my quad core to 3ghz on stock air when i first got it, just needed a little voltage inrease. Raise it first and if its not stable, then do a voltage increase.

and its called intel speed step, disable it along with c1e support (they should be in the same section)

regular e6600's are the most hit and miss processor out there.

I got lucky as hell, bought mine the day they released. got an l628b and its THE golden e6600 stepping. 4.0 @ 1.45 volts.

Then i have a friend whom has one that will struggle with 3.3 at 1.5v.

Best of luck though. You may need it.

I wouldnt OC Much more with the stock cooler...the stock coolers are ****e, they are built out of the cheapest stuff possible so that they can run the CPU's just cool enough

I'd grab yourself an AC7FPro if i were you, dropped my temps a good 20 degrees when i first got it.

£15 is a damn good deal to keep your heart cool.




This is my baby. 3.2Ghz..

Nice ye ill look out for one when i need it but right now i think im gonna stick with 2.7 for a bit and see how thtgoes ive been playing CSS with a 30+fps gain and call of duty all running below 55c which is good but a bit high even tho they can go hotter i presume

If you ask me, 55°C under full load is a very good. When I had an e2180 (I'm using that as an example because it's also a 65nm), my full load temps in Orthos Small FFTs were about 63°C. But I didn't need to worry until they reached 70°C, which seemed impossible for my chip with the Tuniq Tower. It never went above 63°C.

As for running a stress test, 15 minutes is an extremely short test. If you want to deem it truly stable, then turn all of your Power Options in the Control Panel to Never, and then run a stress test while you sleep. In fact, start it the moment you know you're done with the computer for the night, and then come back to it when you've either woken up, or come home from work. A lot of people run Orthos for 10 hours, 12 hours, some even go for 24 hours so they can say, "it's stable 24/7".

Anyway, here's your processor http://processorfinder.intel.com/det...px?sSpec=SLACR

As you can see, it's rated up to 71°C (after this, Intel cannot make any guarantees), and up to 1.5v (again, beyond this, they can't make any guarantees... run it over these rated specs at your own risk, as they say).

So, don't worry about 57°C.

Also, go back to the overclocking guides again (Intel CPUs Essential Threads) and disable everything that they recommend to disable, such as anything to do with spread spectrum, and other things such as what you see in the pic that I attached. If any of those things are mentioned in some form in your BIOS, then disable them if they're not already.

Also, go through everything in your bios, and disable everything that you're 100% sure that you're not using. For example, I disabled both of the onboard LAN jacks because I'm using my network interface card (it seems to perform better). I disabled the onboard audio, the IDE-related stuff (but without disabling sata, of course), the floppy disk thingy, and the FDC, or Floppy Disk Controller. Disabling everything you can disable will free up system resources for overclocking.

Other than that, I just want to say that I am glad that you tried to clean up the cables to help increase air flow. Check this thread for ideas on how to further improve it: "Post your "rate my cables" here". This used to be called "Rate the cables above you".



That's all I got. I'm sorry that I was such a windbag. I hope this helps at least a little bit!
