[email protected] will put all 4 cores at 100% load, same as Prime95. I not sure if they put the same strain on your cpu. I have water cooling and their load temperatures are about the same. With your unload temp at 55C on air, load temp will definitely go up by at least 10~15C.
lots of people run quads at even 1.4Vcore, whats wrong with 1.3-1.35v as long as the temps are fine, is the question here. what are all ur volts then, tons of people run quads at 1.35-1.4v easy of socket 775 and [email protected]
thats good to hear. my cpu needs a lot of volts even just to make it stable at stock speeds lol. thats why my temps are high at the moment. ive just orded a NV120 Premium to deal with the overclock/volt.
Q6600 are safe upto 1.55vcore and temps 71c. High temps aren't as dangerous as the voltage running through the chip so keep that in mind. For example, it would be better for the chip giving it 1.4v and getting 75c under 100% load compared to giving it 1.6vcore and keeping it below 70 with watercooling.
