Well, i seriously have an issue with understanding my CPU.

I've been OCing q6600 since i got it.

Just for example:
On 1.7.2009 i've had it at 3.4(378x9) and 1.32V.

Today, i could get it stable with 1.38V.

The theory:
When i lost my nervous i runed it at 1.42V 400x9=3.6GHz(on 1.7.2009 it needed 1.408V), of course i won't run it at 3.6 because 8800GT doesn't bottleneck that match that i could spend 100W more for +1% FPS in games.

So...I set it now back to 3.2(356x9) for which i needed 1.32V for past 6 days, and today it's running already 1 hour on 1.296V and same 3.2(356x9) sets.

I don't get it

Yeah confusing like that, I was going to say degradation but I was expecting you to say "Now it needs MOAR [email protected]" but you didn't.

My chip is weird too
, 4.3GHz @ 1.344 a few months ago, now I can do 4.4GHz @ 1.32. I reboot and can't anymore, but I can now do 4.5GHz @ 1.34 :/

Did you change any other settings? FSB VTT, NB, PLL? If so, that could have changed how much you really needed on the CPU itself.

All settings were the same for 3.2GHz.I won't even try now 3.4GHz, because i'm sure it will mess up cpu voltage for 3.2GHz

But sadly said, i went with to high voltage for 3.4 on FSB, NB, SB, and it didn't helped, only cpu voltage could :\\
