the new Pentium G6950

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys! This is my first post here and considering that there is almost no info
about how the new G6950 overclocks, I thought I would share what ive got with you .

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=982775

I got it running at 4.2GHz after barely 5minutes of tweaking in the bios.
Perfectly stable!. Runs about 3C higher than Ambient temp at idle and about 20-25C higher than ambient temp at Full Load ( I use the Thermalright Venomous X with two Kaze Jyuni 1200rpm fans , quite silent)
Also note that I ran Orthos(Blend Test, then Small FFTS, then StressCPU with gromacs core) for about 3-4 hours with no errors whatsoever.(each test 3-4 hours)

Oh and, as shown in the CpuZ validation, My ram's latencies are 11-9-9-24 even though I set the tCL at 9 , the clock shows 11, why could that be?.

Either ways, Hope this helped!

That voltage might be a tad high for a 32nm chip. But that is a nice OC!!!

Tomshardware fried one after overclocking it. They report the voltage may have been a bit high. Be wary my friend!

Gratz on the overclock!

Tad high , eh? hmm , After some testing , I managed to keep the same settings
Lowered the VTT core from 1.35 to 1.2 and lowered the Vcore to 1.2175 from 1.38125 . EVERYTHING IS PERFECTLY STABLE , Orthos has been running for a while now. (45min or so, No errors yet.)

This chip really is amazing.

I Almost Forgot! heres the cpuz validation . http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=983079

Doesnt Intel say that these can acutally handle more voltage than the 45nm ones.

EDIT:
yep look here intel says 1.4
And for 45nm only 1.375

Is it possible for me to overclock this CPU with the stock motherboard on the inspiron 580s?
