Q6600 or Q6700..?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Alright before i traded my Q6600 for a Q6700..
The q6600 had 1.2375..
My current Q6700 have 1.2875

Think i should trade back the q6700 for the Q6600?

the reason im thinking of this, is because im getting ocz reaper rams, this wont limit my overclocking anymore..

No keep it for the 10x multi. Less stress on the board with lower FSB.

no because the VID is not always a good indicator of how high it will overclock, and with that little difference i wouldn't bother.

I would still go for the Q6700 because of it's 10x multi. But when i got my Q6600 the Q6700 was double the price, which i saved from overclocking in it's first day.

First off, switch your RAM to unlinked.

Second, see how it overclocks, good Q6600's are getting rare, and poor overclockers are getting very common. VID doesn't necisarily mean it is a good or bad overclockers, some high VID's have been great overclockers, and some low (1.25) VID's have been poor overclockers. It is mostly just a trend, that low VID usually means better overclocker.

i tried unlinking my rams already, it reached 900 mhz with very loose timing, and it is still unstable..

With tight timing, like the one on the bottom i its stable if i increase my voltage by 0.025 to make it stable.
and these ram are horrible overclockers.. =| i already ordered my ocz reaper so i dont want to bother figuring out how much more can i overclock these rams.

You and I seem to think alike (look at our rigs), though I hit a bit of a snag yesterday. After over 5 hours stable running Prime95 at 3.6, I thought, great, finally something is stabilized...then I rebooted and suddenly I can't boot from the HD. Tried everything, went to stock settings, nothing worked. It went from not booting from the HD (but detecting them) to not detecting any IDE drives at all. Then it would detect them, but not boot from them still... I have no idea *** is going on with this. It seems to be a software issue, since it's intermittent, but I'm not sure. Have you ever heard anything like this? I'm wondering if it's the mobo too. Anyway, I got it to boot at 3.8 (not stable though), but can't get faster than that to boot at all. How did you get past that?

With the price as low as $239 (tigerdirect), I would pick the 10x Q6700. Not a promise but the multi should give Q6700 potential higher OC.
