that's a very good VID.

Make sure you have C1E and SpeedStep disabled in BIOS to get your true VID.

If it is in fact 1.25v, then do 3.0GHz at 1.25v

Looks like I had C1E still enabled. Going to find the true value of VID now... I just set to 3.0Ghz and not able to go into windows.

Edit:

Ok SpeedStep and C1E both disabled. CoreTemp is saying 1.2500v for VID. I set vcore in bios to 1.2500 and FSB to 1333 but it's still not loading windows? What am I doing wrong?

up the cpu core to 1.27500 and still can't boot into windows.. help? O.x

Hmmm you might want to up the volts, slowly, by .02v increments. Try that.

Ok. It finally booted into windows at 1.35 - good or bad? this is at 3.0ghz 1333fsb btw. Up from 2.8ghz 1244fsb set at auto vcore. Going to run another 3Dmark06 test.

Stable through 3Dmark06 test. I am now going for 3.2Ghz - do I just keep increasing the vcore or do I have to do anything else? Adjust memory timings? Let me know

Also will updating the bios help? How about the chipset drivers? This desktop did not come with the motherboard drivers disc and I can't find them online (Need to register product and I don't have the serial).

You should be using Intel Burn Test / LinX and/or Prime95 to test for stability

Ok how long should I run it for? Overnight? Also pretty much my cap for OC is 1.5v? Do I need to adjust anything else or just the vcore?

The Q6600 is a tank, you dont have to hesitate to increase the voltage for this CPU. Hell you wont even void the waranty until you go over 1.65 vcore. If your VID is 1.25 then you probably need about 1.3 vcore to boot at 3ghz. It much easier to just start with a high voltage and keep lowering it until you get it as low as it will go without crashing. Try 1.5 vcore if u want, it wont hurt your CPU at all so long as you do not exceed the max temp. Im sure u can go higher than 3ghz with 1.5 vcore or less.

You sir are correct! I got into windows at 1.35v @ 3.0Ghz - and only 2-3C increase in temp! Awesome! Again. Do I just increase the vcore or do I need to adjust anything else? timings etc.?

Just the vcore and clock speed. If you go higher you may need to increase your chipset voltage one or two notches. What are your max temps right now?
