just lapped my true and q6600 now i want to hit 3.8-4.0

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
ok i just lapped my cpu and heatsink. idle at 30-35 and load running prime at 50-55. I know the limit is about 72 right? so that gives me room to oc it higher.

right now my volts is at 1.44 at load and 1.48 idle. what should i set it at to get 3.8-4.0?

so if i keep the temps under 70 at load i should be fine? what should i expect the life span to be if its clocked at 4.0 and maybe 1.55v?

I would suggest doing a vDroop mod on your board.

Not for that board? I didn't know. My bad.

If you're at 3.6ghz with 1.48v I highly doubt you'll get 3.8-4.0ghz with safe volts. Temperature only matters to a certain extent.

i have a xfx 680 lti with a vdrop mod but i like this board im using so far. really trying to hit 4.0 on air. and keeping the temps at load under 72. just wondering what else i need to do to get this done.

over 1.5v is too much, imho, your about maxed for air with out frying the chip.

Since you are curently at 3.6GHz with 1.48v vcore, I dont see how you can get to 3.8GHz. As you get closer to your max OC, the voltage curves upward as it reaches its limit. So while you can go from 3.0GHz to 3.4GHz with only a small adjustment in vcore, you needed much more to get to from 3.4GHz to 3.6GHz. So to get from 3.6GHz to 3.8GHz, it is going to take a lot more voltage then it did for the previous incremental OCs. Basically the vcore is exponential as you reach its limit.

The only thing you can try is to set the vcore to the max possible setting your temps will allow (probably around 1.5v vcore). Then start increasing your FSB and see how high it can go. There are no magic settings. Each chip is different, especially at the higher vcore. Dont forget to give your NB voltage as you increase the FSB.

got into windows with 3.8 @ 1.5 v core. i think this should be the max volts?



i will run test and see. so should i up my nb?
