First OC Question (Q6600@2.9995)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Okay, this is my first overclock other than gpu/gddr bumping on vid cards. I think every thing is set correctly. Seems stable enough it ran prime95 for over 12 hours in blended and more than 1 hour in small/large FFT's. I just have a few questions. First off is it okay to bump the memory frequency back to 800? If I do does this at all affect the temperature? Second What is the Temp 4 in Speedfan and is it ok to be that hot? It says (Chip: aSC7621/Bus: Intel SMBus/Address: $2E). I'm guessing its my NB, which leads me to my last question. I placed an old soyo fan on my SB and an old AMD fan on my NB. The amd fan sits half on my NB heat sink and half over my ram slots. I was just wondering if getting a smaller fan that would sit center of the heat sink, would that be better?

Bios Settings:

Q6600/BadAxe2/OCZ Gold(pc6400)
Disabled IEST, C1E, & Intel Watchdog
Vcore: 1.31
Host Bus Frequency: 333
Reference Frequency: 333
Memory Frequency: 667
Memory Voltage:1.9
All other voltage set to stock.

Temps (Idle-100%):

Speedfan:
Core 0: 22-50c
Core 1: 22-50c
Core 2: 18-43c
Core 3: 20-43c
Internal Temp: 24-30c
Temp 3: 24-27c
Temp 4: 28-52c
HDD: 23-25c

Core Temp:
Core 0: 33-60c
Core 1: 33-60c
Core 2: 27-57c
Core 3: 30-57c

Any advice is welcome. Thanks in advance.

1st i'd say the Speedfan temps are incorrect. I have never used your cooler but you must have one cool room to have 18C idle temp on one core. CoreTemp readings look more realistic. 10C is huge when going for max OC's. Temps now are OK but i'd get a new cooler. You will be getting into danger territory very soon with what you have now.

Yeah, kinda figured that the speedfan temps were about -10c off after looking at Core Temp. So that should mean that my "Temp 4" is realy hitting 62c? I think it hit 68c before I changes my ref/mem frequency to 333/667. Dunno if that makes any sense, I'm a total nub. Are all of those acceptable temps? Mainly I was realy just worried if that 62c is ok for what I think is the north bridge. I think the other temps are prollie fine as its not much of a change from stock settings. CPU temps may be a lil higher but not to bad. I'ma look at some new coolers. BTW thanks for reply

Not bad, What is your CPU vid: (from coretemp) Do you know what the load CPU volts are? (you can get it from cpu-z)

If you can keep it cool you should get 3.6 out of that puppy. and yes bump up the mem

My CPU VID from Core Temp is 1.3125v. CPU-Z sits at 1.289v idle to 1.266v under 100% load on all 4 cores. I would realy like to get all my higher temps under 60c prollie gonna get a new CPU cooler and a smaller fan for my NB. I use tuniq-2 greese on my CPU but I may get some Arctic Silver and do the whole board and my vid card. I hear it's pretty good.

Arctic Silver is good stuff I still use it. With volts that low for 3.0 you have a good chip.

My Q6600 has a vid of 1.275v and takes 1.4v for 3.6

Good luck.

Same VID as mine. 1.44v for 3.6. Can boot up to 3.8/1.55v but crashes within a minute under Prime95.
