Q6600 - 4.0 validated

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Well I'm just seeing how much I can get out of this CPU. I'm not going to be WC for a while, and I don't really see the need for the extra Ghz at the moment.

I just don't want to waste a good chip by not pushing it to its potential...

I've been using this Q6600 @ 3.6 with 1.38v - but I got lazy and just left it at that voltage...could probably be lower...

The VID is 1.2125v*

My VID is only 1.20v, and 4.0GHz is hard to get with that even. Once you get above 3.6GHz, your vcore has to go up exponentially.

I have the same VID, 1.2125v. I made it into windows at 4.0ghz with 1.5vcore, and was stable long enough to get a superpi 1M run in, and some stats pages up from cpu-z and coretemp. losttsol is right, you need much, much more vcore to get to those areas.

MM.. but I'm sure with WC, I can get that stable since I can boot and take CPU-Z validation and play around with it...Only reason I didn't continue with the load test was the temps, since it was going over 70c Granted, my ambient is in the 40ish but regardless, I didn't want to have it running 70c even for a bit...so thats the reason for me bailing out

oh and click on my sig to see the validation*

I don't necessarily agree with that. I can get my rig to boot at 4.2GHz and play around on the internet, but it sure as heck won't run Prime95 at that speed. I have run Prime95 about 20 minutes at 4.0GHz, but my temps weren't to my liking so I shut it down.

I guess you're right since I haven't been playing with those...

Still, I would like some appraisals..^^

I can get mine to boot into windows at 3.85GHz, but it takes 1.48v and it idles at about 50C.

I'm guessing that's not really bad for the chip if i stay at 1.5v and below and don't let it get put under a load, correct?

190-200 shipped. 3.6 is more than enough for people whether it take 1.38 or 1.425. Most people can handle the heat with a TT or TRUE.
