Q6700!

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Finally, i trade in my Q6600 for my friends Q6700, and right now, it's overclocked to 3.75Ghz under 1.4875 BIOS, 1.448 on desktop, (VDROOP)

For some reason, my temperature is lower than my Q6600 at 3.6 ghz.. i'm not sure if it have anything to do with the thermal grease..

[IDLE TEMPERATURE]

22:04:18 05/08/083750.0640313137



o.o im guessing it have something to do with my thermal grease..
for the Q6600.. i had a little more than rice grain size
for the Q6700.. i had a little more than a BBgun bullet size.. [bigger than rice size]


Also, anyone know what's the max a Q6700 can be overclocked to under 1.5v?

3.8ghz is the common overclock for a Q6700 @ 1.5v but some people have Better Chips then others

Well i just tried Prime95, Core 3 failed in less than 3 seconds. the rest are still running... think i should increase my voltage or decrease my overclock?

What was the Error?
post #5 of 37
Almost a 10 degree difference in temps on cores.
It is definatly your Tim.
Could also be a very concave /convex Cpu / Heatsink.
I dont think its something to stress about or worry about because your temps are fine. But More commonly ive seen people with no more then a 5 degree difference.

What difference in temps on cores do you get under load ....
Do they line up ? 60-60-60-60 ?

Or 60-69-69-68 etc ?

Most overclockers on OCN have usually posted try to stay within 5 degrees
40-38-39-40
Example.
This is just what i have read and seen over every forum.
Hopefully this is some helpful information, and if you already know about this then disregard my post and ignore me. I'm only trying to help !

Have you thought about lapping ?

I would decrease your clocks. I ran Prime95 on my Q6700 and my brothers. They both would run 3-4 hrs, then fail (after many hours Prime95 I found mine clocks to 3.8GHz at 1.44v and his clocks to 3.75GHz at 1.47v). It took more vcore then I expected to get it stable from that point. I ended up dropping my brothers from 3.7GHz with 1.47v vcore prime stable 4 hours, down to 1.432v vcore for 3.6GHz. So give that a try.
