Edit: Burning the cpu is not important as long as it works stable to its dying breath.
Ok i need help
I have a e6750 and 4 gb ocz 800mhz ddr rams- 2 different but similar pairs-.
As the pictures shows at this rates my pc runs ok.
But when i make 3.2 ghz even with rams deafult modes my pc can't even stand prime95 10 minutes.
I heard people reach 3.6 ghz without even touching VCORE volts.
I am using a mediocre cpu cooler with a very low quality termal paste.
I have a 460 W 12 year old psu, 8800 gt, using dual monitor.
it's been ages since I overclocked a Conroe CPU, but I'm 99.99% sure no one hit 3.6Ghz on stock voltage. Some chips didn't even hit 3.6. My old E2140 was stuck at 3.0 while my E6300 needed 1.425v to hit 3.6.
I don't really remember what NB voltage I ran, but I'm thinking 1.4v?
Just keep an eye on temps of the NB. I remember yanking the NB heatsink off and putting new paste. Seeing as it's a 10+ year old platform it might not be a bad idea to do that depending on temps. Keep airflow going over it and you should be fine if you're just going for a final hoorah run though
Well increasing NB volt looks like helping but my board temperature was going above 80 degree fast. I think i need to change termal paste at NB. Also now my pc is not stable for a reason. Anyways thank you for the help "The Pook". That really means a lot.
North bridge did not have any termal paste. There was some kind of -glued metal part- on the heat sink. Some kind of thing that take the shape of the chip by force. Applied some termal paste on it.
Now max temp is =78 for prime95 load.(instead of 80+)
South bridge was so bad. The old termal paste was not even spread(-ed ) half of the chip in factory and was also very old and dry as expected. Cleaned it, applied very much new cheap paste since it was very big chip. Sadly have no info about degrees.
I mixed some cables in reassembly and now my reset button is power. Will change that. Also mixed up sata cable orders so boot is now ****ed.
