My processor's VID is 1.3125. I've tried lower voltage settings than this but it wasn't stable under Prime95 so I upped them. Also tried to drop down to overclock 3.0 (instead of 3.2), but that was not a success.

My main CPU temp (not the 4 core temps) has run into the high 60's (saw it hit 70 for a brief moment ) when stressing and since I have a B3 q6600, I'm fearing that I'm gonna burn up my poor little chip trying to overclock. Should I just go back to 2.4Ghz???

I couldn't get a stable prime 95 run from 8*400 either. I switched to 360*9 (3.24 GHz) and got a nice stable 8 hour run.

Like you, used the 2.00D multiplier, performance enhance standard.
Vcore=1.4v, LLC on.
All cpu throttling cpu power management = off.

Left everything else stock including the NB. Got 8 hours of prime 95 with cpu temps between 50-55 C. Idles around 30 C. How's your idle temp?

I mentioned a couple of pages ago, I'm new to OCing and am probably overlooking something major with my settings (anyone feel free to correct me, I have much reading to do still). But I found the 8 hour run to be encouraging.

steel try
cpu clock drive 900
pcie 800
command rate 2
system mem multi 2.00B
channel A & B 8 or 9
and it should work. Then start droping you vcore

Hey guys, i need advices, i`m very stressed with my settings... Some days ago i was using 800x5 very stable but no matter what i do i wasn`t able to rise the fsb to 505. And i decided to reduce the fsb and rise the multi, ok. And now i`m on 490x8.5 very stable as well. So my problem is no matter what i do i can get blend stable at any FSB over 491, ORTHOS fails and the computer restart after few minutes... Is there some limit for clock because i realize that i can`t go over 4.2ghz on blend test, even on lower FSB and high multi like 467x9. Well, i hope someone can figure out what is my problem. I had tested the whole thing with 3 sets of different memory (OCZ, Mushikin, Crucial Ballistix).

Well for one your MCH reference is not even close to 0.633 of MCH core value. Thats very important for higher fsbs.

Have you tried the following yet?

CPU Clock Drive................................. 1000mv
PCI Express Clock Drive....................... 1000mv
CPU Clock Skew................................. 0
MCH Clock Skew................................ 50ps

i thought the mch ref should be 0.633 from current VTT, didn`t? i never heard about that...if i set 1.46*0.633 i get 0.924 on bios and on ET6 i will get around 0.844 and it is very high!!! i tested between 0.68-0.72 on ET6 and my best results were on 0.68....


And i will give a shot on CPU clock drive and pcie clock drive, but this settings shouldn`t be for quad cores?

And i will give a shot on CPU clock drive and pcie clock drive, but this settings shouldn`t be for quad cores?
Well if you haven't tried 0.844V for MCH ref yet you should. The way it breaks down for 45nm quads is
Vref should be 0.633 of Vtt
MCHref should be 0.633 of MCH Core.

Since you got a 45nm c2d, you might need less then the 0.633 of x value but I think it should still be close to it.

Ive got the above to be IBT 60+ and 6 hrs P95 but I'm waiting on getting a UPS before I do 24 hr p95 confirmation

For some reason last two times I ran p95 at the above settings first time p95 went on for 6 hrs before I shut it off, next time p95 crapped out in 30 min with perfectly fine temps. I live in a 50 year old house so wiring here is spectacular and does wonders for my overclock stability.

Thanks!

Its so boring to start from scratch, like I did with my P5Q-E, so thanks a lot!

Sounds like its good settings since you made 60+ IBT!

How are the temps?
