E6600 cannot reach 3.6 GHz?

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 
E6600.. Back in the days. I can't remember if it was easy for the E6600 tor each 3.6 GHz or not.

It takes 1.425 vcore to hit 3.4 GHz and 1.6 GHz to reach 3.5 GHz.. I've been trying to hit 3.6 GHz again but it just won't happen. It used to work over 6 months ago.. but I could never get it stable at 3.6 GHz since then.

Seems like I max out the vcore before temperatures. Already increased vcore to max, NB at 1.5v, RAM loosened to 5-5-5-15-2T, and 8x mulitplier.

What a Deja vu, it sound like mine.

With my Striker Extreme I had to push 1,65 to get it stable with 3,6, I don´t remember what volt at idle or load.

With my ASUS Blitz formula SE I had to push 1,625 to get it stable with 3,6, and with "Loadline Calibration" enabled it was 1,60 idle and 1,592 under load.

You need a good cooler for it thou, I have tested with Zalman 9700 Led at ful blast (2836rpm) and still 66C (ambient roomtemp ~21), with water I was around 60C.

I hope it help some.

There are great differences between different E6600's. Some overclocked brilliantly, hitting over 3.6GHz quite easily, while others barely managed a paltry 3.2GHz...

I've ran into a few guys with my hardware who couldn't achieve 3.6, I've recommended those settings to like 5/6 different guys, all are now running at 3.6. Give those a shot OP if they don't work then.. Yea, your chip might be a later week or w/e.

Maybe you may find something usefull in this thread: http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...htmare-10.html ... it's also about OC'ing a quad though it's a 45nm Q9450 ...

Edit: forget this one ... misread!!! It's an E6600! Sorry, my mistake!

Bleh. It looks like I'll be stuck with a 3.4 GHz. 3.5 GHz isn't worth it..

And RaiDer. It's not such a good idea to set your vcore on Auto.

I have the same problem, anything after 3.4GHz i have to up the vcore, i never went over 1.56v and even at that high it wasn't stable for more than a few seconds in orthos.

Yea I know, tis the only way to get stable at 3.6 though, setting the voltages up like that will give 1.47/1.52v, it will fluctuate beyond those two points. Using that method I've been stable now for months and months.

If I go in a manually set a Vcore, it won't boot, or will but won't be stable.

Guys try those settings, if they don't work I'l eat my hat. Try it.
