Q6600 is starting to have problems - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
I loweered it to 3.4ghz and put on a vcore of 1.35 and the temps barely decreased. The fourth core hits low 60's while the other cores are at 76+ when testing under OCTT. This must be a heatsink/thermal compound problem. (When testing with OCTT, running same settings with prime95 after OCTT BSOD @3.4ghz).

you aren't supposed to have a 16 degree difference in the cores, maybe 5, but not 16. you're h/s probably needs to be reseated.

Could be two things:
1) Your heatsink is completely uneven (you may have knocked it loose)
2) Your PSU. I don't trust OCZ for PSUs anymore after mine crapped out on me. OC'ing draws a LOT of power from your PSU.

I just passed prime95 now with these lower settings (small ffts/8 hours), but OCTT still gets the processor too hot while I never saw temps over 55 with prime95. I will run orthos now. If this fails too, I will reseat the heatsink.
EDIT: Nevermind, orthos only tests 2 cores. Is prime95 reliable, or since OCCTT failed should I just reseat the heatsink? I really want to avoid doing that if possible, as it seems straight on and the computer is pretty new.

I got similar setup and it does suck! I noticed some high temps as well, when I went from 3.0GHz to 3.2GHz and it got pretty hot. I also used the Zalman 9700, but I went with the Zalman Super Thermal Grease instead of AS5 and made sure my fan was cranked to 100% at all times.

It sux cause my VID is 1.3250v which on similar setups I noticed that it was lower, like 1.20v. So when I OC'd and kick up my vcore, it would get hot. So I removed the HS and cleaned it up and reapplied some AS5. So having tested both (AS5 and STG), I can say that the temps are relatively the same. They did drop some, but not a lot. I'm back at 3.0GHz again with idle temps in the mid 30's.

And like one of the guys said, ambient temps do matter. I have an Ultra10 that's in the same room always on with a scsi multipack with 6 scsi drives hooked up to it and it can get pretty warm in this room where as the rest of the house is very cool. And this is with my A/C turned on.

Just give the reseat and AS5 a try, it may be a different outcome for you then it was for me.

As gibs pointed out.... Try running your multiplier @ 2x.... That could be your problem. Have you changed any of your settings since you were able to run stable?

1. how's ur case cooling configured. intake and exhaust?
2. zalmans need some kind of direct air to work properly.
3. Get a T.R.U.E or whatever is a better aircooler.

I have an antec 900 with two front intakes, 1 side intake (on the side panel) and two outakes. The big one on top and one on the rear. The zalman is blowing towards the outtake on the rear. I have not changed any settings since it was stable.
Thanks
