It will stress it more on SMP and even more if you run dual SMP clients.

I hope you meant 1.5 vcore...

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.

It honestly doesn't put that much strain on my quad. Ill have VMWare+Linux smp running and my gpu client running and i only reach about 80% load.

IIRC you can set the CPU usage in the windows SMP version. Also, some of the linux version people have set the usage to below 100% to allow for GPU clients.
