Hi everyone.

I just overclocked my core 2 quad Q6600 G0 and i didn't get the result i expected. My goal was 3.6 GHz ( 9x 400MHz with 1.45 Vcore) but after 15 min with prime 95 the highest temp was 69 celcius. I put the multi to 8 with 1.35 Vcore. No fail on prime 95 after 12 hours and max temps was 65 celcius. I'm not really happy with it because i lapped the cpu and i just received my Cooler Master Hyper 212+ wth MX-2. I got my HAF 932 for airflow.

My question is: do i need to re-apply the thermal paste or not? is it normal to get theses temps on Q6600 G0?

Thanks for helping me, really appreciate.

I know i can reach 3.6 under 1.5v but the problem is temps... I don't want to go higher than 70 celcius.

I know its stable at 3.6Ghz with 1.45v. i tried it yesterday but i down clocked it because he reached 69 celcius after 15 min on prime95. At 3.2Ghz with 1.35v i get 65 celcius before re-application of paste and HS. Now i got 51-52 celcius MAX.

The question is: Could it stay under 65 celcius at 3.6 GHz? Temps are my problem.... not stability.

And, if it's still too hot at 3.6 , i will try 3.4 ( 9x 378) But now the problem is the memory ratio. At the moment, i'm on 1:1 ( ddr2- 801MHz in BIOS) with 400MHz FSB and CPU-Z show me 400MHz 1:1. I don't really know how to change memory ratio and wich one to choose. My memory is Corsair XMS2 2x2 GB 800 MHz 5-5-5-18 1.80v
Any advice about that?

1 Bridge at a time imo, see if you're good on temps at 3.6 now you've reseated

Personally I wouldn't worry too much about getting up to say 80oC with IBT, 75oC on prime since you will almost never fully stress your CPU (unless you're folding, you're not folding are you?).

Also, if you're getting high temps now, but you're stable, you could always fiddle with your voltages to see if you can lower temps and maintain stability.
