Moar voltage. 1.45v is nothing for 65nm.

I would say that 1.45 should be the limit for a Q6600 G0 on air cooling. Going much past this is too much, in my opinion..

Also, when raising vcore to those levels the motherboards voltage circuitry is being loaded very hard. And cheap motherboards with only 3 or 4 phase power circuitry can burn with too high vcores.. Also important that motherboards have 8-pin power feeding from PSU when overclocking Quad to the limits.

For Dual core overclocking 3 or 4 phase power should be fine. And with only one 4-pin powerconnector.

I would not have gone much past 1.45v vcore with a 'cheap' motherboard and a Quad Core CPU

In my experience, low gflops is a sign of instability even if the CPU seems to not be throttling. When the low gflops happen, IBT or certain games would have odd hangs. Raising volts would fix it for me.

Could be something else, but eh.

I admit I haven't read the entire thread, but which program are you using to compute the GFLOPS?

Sounds like somone is going to have to put in the hours/days to find the new sweet spot(s) for his voltages on his the new mobo...biggrin.gif

(on edit, are SuperPi times scaling with the poor GFLOPS readings?)

Try p95 and run it, see if it's 24 hours stable, bet it's not. I had the same problem, turned out to be an unstable overclock.

Correct. My super Pi results was 15s which is around the right score for 3.6GHz on my system

No, i'm running unlinked at 800Mhz 4-4-4-12 @ 2T, same as I was before. I do suspect it's the NForce board, but I'm not going to read too much into it as bal3 said. It's a good test for stability, but the GFLOPS scores can be way off.

Yeah, this is why I'm not too worried Desert Rat. I ran 50 passes and I averaged about 30 GFLOPS, give or take a few (at 3.6GHz)

When running my Q9650 at 3.825GHz I'm in the 52 - 53 Gigaflops range.. if I remember correctly. So a Q6600 at 3.6GHz should be much higher than below 30 Gigaflops.

I'm currently running Microsoft Security Essentials, so you think I should disable that eh? And I believe you're right. I should be hitting around 40+ GFLOPS.

That's what I'm thinking. Not sure though. Could be. I've run it countless times and I'm either at 30, or below in GFLOPS

You think the 780i is a cheap motherboard? It runs 8 phase power and just for you, 1.55v is the max you should go on a Q6600. I'm also on watercooling.

I can pass 63 passes, so far on 3.6GHz at 1.45v I'd say it's stable. I could run 100 but it's not the point. Nothing but folding will stress my computer that hard.

SuperPi scaling is just about right for my rig at 3.6GHz (15s @ 1M)

I'd trust IBT/LinX before I ever trusted Prime95 redface.gif

Just as a side note: I was getting awful 3DMark11 and Vantage scores. Turns out it was the latest WHQL drivers that were causing such low scores.

I rolled back to 260.99 drivers and I got my scores back (the one's in my sig). So I'm not so concerned about this GFLOPS business.

Hey, can you down load this guy and post a screenshot? If I (and others) can see everything you have running we may be able to find the culprit if it is drivers/programs/services that are sapping your GFLOPS

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653

It's a nice program to have anyway..cool.gif

unstable overclock



at q6600 3.7ghz 1.45v on 680i board I'm getting 37-39 gflops
with ram at 800mhz 4-4-4-12 1T 1.9v's

Gflops went up 4 gflop for me when tightens ram timings and clock rate instead of pushing MHZ higher on nvidia based chipsets
