Since I pencil vmodded, I don't have hardly any vdroop (actually the opposite, it goes up a little under load).
in general, the voltage posted in the sig is the voltage in cpu-z or occt (check the graph after running the test) that the cpu is at stable under load.
I haven't pushed this chip since the highest this board will run is 518fsb and with only a 9x multi it doesn't really make a super overclock haha.

CPU: Q660 G0 9*400 = 3.6GHz
CPU Core: 1.46875v
CPU FSB: 1.4v
Idle Temps: 39-45C
Load Temps: 40-69C
Looks like you'll have to push the voltages on your fsb possibly and NB most likely. Go to 1.55 on the SPP. Then try 1.45v on the FSB.
Also, run your ram at 800mhz 5-5-5-15 to eliminate it as a confounding variable.Edited by d3v0 - 4/2/09 at 2:33pm
