Q6600 wont boot @ 3.5ghz and bluescreens @ 3.3ghz... - Page 2

That's the only problem, I don't see how I could have possibly applied the TIM any better than I did. There was an even coat all the way across and it was as thin as the head of a needle. If nothing shapes up and I have to lap my HSF, can I just go to lowes and buy the stuff I need or should I order a kit online?

You're better off going to a checker, or autozone. You need to get finer sand paper that home depot or lowes has. Try the light test on your h/s. Take you're h/s out, put a razor(or any straight edge) up against the base of the h/s. Then hold them up to the light. If you can see light in between them, you need to lap.

Edit: As long as you keep your vcore under 1.5v you will be fine. The safe limit on the Q6600 is 1.5v according to Intel.

My vid is 1.3v, does that mean I can get to 3.6Ghz under 1.5v? I'm not too sure about VIDs and stuff, I just find the max safe vcore and temps and I start my OC. I'm getting extra cooling today so hopefully it won't jump to 71C after 20mins prime95.

Does lapping void warranty?

Well after 30 minutes of Prime95 my temps are anywhere from 68/66/62/62, 68/68/65/65, and 68/67/61/60. I don't really know what to make of that, but I'm thinking I'm going to have to end up lapping my HS. If I strap an extra 120mm fan onto the HS would that lower temps at all?

Lapping is actually quite easy. Get something like 400 grit to get the nickel layer off, then switch to 800, and then 1200. And if you so desire, you can get micron paste (or diamond paste), which you can use to literally get a mirror shine.

Make sure you have a piece of glass or something perfectly flat to work on.

*Note, do NOT use water when sanding a CPU. And use the plastic cover it came with to protect the back (just in case)

another noob question...but is lapping a cpu basically sanding off the nickle top layer for better contact to the heatsink and therefore cooler temp and better performance ?

Correct, although the main point of lapping a CPU IHS and a heatsink is to make them as flat as possible which leads to optimal heat transfer between the two.

new update:

I did exactly as what gibsonnova74 (thank you) stated on page 1 of this thread and my CPU still CAN NOT pass Prime95 @ even 3.2ghz...

interestingly, with 3.15ghz (which's only 0.05ghz slower than the failing 3.2ghz) and with the bios self "optimizing" the voltages (instead of increasing the voltage manually), it ran prime95 for a good 30 minutes without a single error..

now what..??

So I just found out my core VID is 1.325v....

will 1.425v~1.450v safe for 24/7 use on my cpu ?
