Q6600 at 3.4Ghz how do I get to 3.6!!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I was running at 3.2Ghz with my Q6600 now up to 3.4Ghz! http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=359743 check it out. I set my vCor to 1.5v since the warranty says it can run at 1.5v other people were telling me that is way too high, but if it lasts 3 years and I have a warranty then I'm good.

I have the Antec 900 case and the top fan is broken cause I was an idiot and broke a propeller on it so the case was shaking, but I ordered a new one. Once I install that do you think I might be able to get it higher? I am trying to get to 3.6, but everytime I try to go to 3.6 I get a blue screen before startup. Also I just ordered a Thermalright HT-50 GT VGA cooler do you think the VGA cooler will help with my CPU oc'ing?

What else can I do to get to 3.6Ghz?!

Thanks for your help people !

what are your temps
just increase your FSB slowly
i was doing 3.6 with vcore set to around 1.4
but its too hot to run 24/7
idle was like 45C

1) replacing the top fan to your antec 900 might help your CPU temps a bit
2) a VGA cooler will in no way affect your CPU clocks
3) If you're needing 1.5v for 3.4GHz, I think you've hit your limit unless you're not giving your northbridge enough voltage and are having to compensate by giving you CPU that much juice

uhhhh, intels warranty doesnt cover OC'ing, even at stock voltage.

I could of sworn that Intel warrants the vcore temp to 1.35 max, not 1.5......1.5 is a bit toasty. You may want to double check that before you roast your chip. Just a word of caution.

I would say as long as your temps are within reason, keep pushing the FSB.

Okay well I read a thread that said that I will try to find it and post it here so you guys can see. That this chip goes up to 1.5v, but I will check it out and edit this post to show you guys.

What vcore were you running at to get 3.2ghz? I feel like you should be able to hit 3.6 at 1.5vcore with some fiddling of the fsb. Of course, if my assumption is correct, you have the p35 ds3l which is known to have a high vdroop, i know Avacado had to set his vcore to 1.55 to compensate for a vdroop which went all the way to like 1.48 i think under load.

Do you know the VID of your chip? Mine is 1.325 so I know it's going to take a hell of a high vcore if I want to push mine to 3.6ghz

I'd try to drop the vcore down ever so slightly, try 1.48, see if you run stable and if you do stick at that. I don't think 200mhz of speed is worth running at such a high vcore. You'd still be at a 1ghz OC with 3.4, which is still great imo.

I agree and I will try this, but what do you mean the VID of my chip what is VID? yeah with the vdroop i think 1.5v is not too dangerous and I could probably got to 1.55v also with no problems.

Okay here it is, I found this from something someone else posted on the forums, it shows everything about the Q6600 and its features.



So according to this 1.5v is the highest it can go.

Yes, those are the specs for the Q6600, but they can vary slightly from chip to chip. Download Coretemp 0.98.1 and that will tell you your VID, the VID generally gives you an idea of how high you can clock your cpu and the voltages you'll probably need. If you have a 1.325 VID like myself (which is high and very common of the new Q6600's) you'll have a hard time getting to 3.6 with a vcore lower than 1.5, especially on your ds3l
