what would be the highest voltage on these when overclocking.
it's all about cooling my friend if you cool your cpu enough then you can up it very high but normal is about 1.55v I would say for normal cooling watter you could do 1.65 and maybe little more depends everything how good the cooling is.
ok,thanks sidret99 .
I agree. I do not like more then 1.6 on water, but I have gone 1.63 in bios for 3.825 on e6600. Good luck man!
well Ime not on water ,just air cooling (zalman 9500)
Intel spec the Core2 architecture to fully support 1.65v, however the heat will kill it. Thus they are wrinting 1.325v max on the cpu box because their stock cooler will support this voltage-->temps produced on the other end.
I find 1.4v quite doable whit a good air cooler
Yeah I have currently 1.425V @ 3.4Ghz. Perfectly stable. Temps are also great atm.
What are your other various voltages?
DDR2? MCH, ICHIO, etc.
im on 3.3ghz .
on idle my temp are between 26c idle & 51c load.[WITH EVEREST CPU STRESS TEST.] and volts are 1.4.
i wanna go higer but im too scared lol.
ps..im using the thermaltake blue orb!!:approval:
What about TAT for your temps, idle and 30min Orthos?
For me 3.3ghz at 1.36v
Idle 48 [TAT]
Load 62 [TAT]
Yay! My e4300 is a piece of trash!! I need a Q6600 NOW.
No, could just be setting in your mobo at the wrong place.
Higher PCIe speed, 100mhz vs 110. Or HT link from 200 to 220.
I found this would help whit FSB over 1200.
Add voltage on the mobo. Over 3.ghz get tricky for a nice and stable oc. Need to be fine tuned.
Ya I never fiddled with the PCIe speed. I'll try it. I can manage 3.3ghz at high voltage but don't like to run like that all the time.
