Q6600 on water. 1.55 vcore safe?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
my Q6600 was running around 70C under full load with a lapped tuniq so i figured id take the plunge and set up some water


well, i got my new water cooling up and running(not as easy as i was hoping but i finally got it working) and with my chip @ 3.6 1.5vcore temps wont break 58C .

what im wondering is how much voltage i can push through this thing and still have it last me about a year. i have gotten it up to 3.8 @ 1.54 vcore so far and havent tried any higher yet. anyone have any experience pushing this chip that far?

It's range goes up to 1.5V

1.55 may start to degrade the life of the CPU after a while.

Wouldn't kill it, but might shorten it's life over the long haul.

He might have a different vid though...

Different Q6600's get different OC's because of the vid
