Q6600 L810 batch - any good? - Page 2

It is kind of based on luck. I had a 1.25v vid Q6600 GO and it maxed out at 3.5GHz with 1.48v vcore. Yet I've seen some with a 1.325v vid get 3.6GHz with that same vcore. While the vid is not a guarantee, it is a good indicator of OC potential.

You could always pick up a used Q6600 with a proven OC in the F/S section. I picked one up that does 3.6GHz with 1.4v vcore for only $140 shipped for a friend's build.

you can't really say that such and such a VID will hit 3.6ghz or something. But on average with the q6600s, 1.3+ chips have trouble getting over 3.2-3.3ghz.

Also low VID usually means hotter running. Personally, for quads I found the "sweet spot" to be 1.2375-1.275V in terms of clocks/temps.

that is rather sad, my old B3 did better than that.

I know it's not true that low VID definitely means a higher overclock, but I'm certainly going to have better luck with 1.2375 over 1.3250, right?

True, but I sold it for $20 less then I paid for it and ended up with a Q6700 with a 1.225v vid that does 3.9GHz with 1.5v vcore.

How do we find out what batch our CPU is? Will a program like Everest tell me that info? I really don't want to take my unit apart.

Well unfortunately, it's only on the front of the CPU and the side of the box if you still have that around.

I have a 1.3250 VID and I'm at 3.4Ghz with 1.42v in Windows. Not all that bad.

Oh, and great temps! 24c idle and 38c load.

Aye and I had a 1.325VID chip that did 3.6ghz on 1.425V...not too bad at all, but sadly not everyone is as lucky.
