Help Tricky with his Q6600.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello fellow OCN members, I've been wondering if same VID Q6600s OC just the same or close to the same. Cause I've seen some Q6600s with higher VID's OC more with a lower/same voltage. And I've seen my VID on a Q6600 OCing way more with almost the same voltage.

Anywho, can you quad OCing experts come and help me figure out my max stable OC for my cpu? My cpu's VID is 1.2250V btw

Its really trial and error usualy lower vid means higher clock but some high vids can also get higher clocks. Then some high vids cant clock for crap but usualy if you got a low vid you will get a decent overclock. Kinda big puzzle lol no full proof way to tell just gota try it and see what you can get.

all in the chip

Like Bal3Wolf said, it's all trial and error. With a higher Vid you might be able to OC higher with stock volts. But just because a vid is high it can still be stable undervolted.
