Either your expectations for the TT are way too high or my TT isn't performing how it should. I have my Q6600 set to 3.4Ghz (378x9) with a Vcore of 1.375. For some reason I can't even survive 5 minutes when OCCT is running. My temps shoot up to 70C and OCCT stops running so that my cpu doesn't get any hotter.

I'm pretty pissed off right now considering I've reseated this damn thing three times in the past two days. I'm thinking about going down to Autozone tomorrow, picking up some sandpaper, and lapping the hell out of my cpu and TT since I have nothing else to do tomorrow.

Edit: If it even matters, my VID is 1.275. Right now after running Prime95 for a little bit with my cpu at 3.2Ghz and a 1.325Vcore my temps are 60/52/54/57. Right now I'm pretty disappointed that I can't even do 3.4Ghz on this thing. Any suggestions before I lap away tomorrow? I really don't want to spend hours lapping if I can spend less time doing something quick and simple.

One last thing, anytime I do P95 at 3.4Ghz I get a rounding error. I have the Vcore set to 1.375 while doing this. All of the cores, except for the one that fails, run right around 60C.
