What's holding me back now????

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I'm currently tweaking my recent build to run as fast as possible on air cooling. I seemed to be stuck at 3.6 though. What's holding me back?

I've replaced the PSU with a higher wattage, I bought another psu for the OC'ed 8800's so they wouldn't draw from the main psu, I've done the Vdroop mod, What's left?

I have booted into 3.8 but crashed 2 minutes into a p95 run.

My load temps for 3.6 are 57-57-53-53 @ 1.336

Multi:9x

FSB:1600

My ram is rated at 1.8v, but I read on here if I'm using 4 sticks then up it to ~2.1v.

I've lapped my Q6600 and TRUE, and slapped 2 Scythe Ultra Kaze 3,000RPM fans on there.

...help!!! (please)

Your lack of CPU voltage is holding you back, that 64nm CPU can handle up to 1.5v so don't be afraid to go up to 1.4vCore.

Had the same problem with my quad and my 650i, the board hated it... obviously yours shouldnt. Your temps are acceptable. What happens when you add more vcore?

Don't be afraid of 1.4-1.5 vcore. Also you'll have to bump up your NB(might be MCH or MCP in your BIOS). Especially with 4 sticks of RAM.

if i bump up the vcore, it just doesn't stabilize. I'll try bumping my nb, but i'm already at 1.4 or 1.5. My ram's at 800mhz, do you think pushing it past that could have something to do with it?
