Question Q6600 OC How High?

Okay so PC is in my sig. This is what I got last night. Ran it 2 hours on Prime95, will run it a bit more this weekend and do some more tweeks. 3.150Ghz @ 1.2375 stock voltage no change. Temp is 38C @ idle and 52C on Prime95 full load. Ram timmings are set to 4,4,4,12 1:1 FSB ratio. Guestimates on how much I can push this without upping the Core Voltage?

Default Re: Q6600 OC How High?

It would depend on the VID of your Q6600. It's located on the side label of your retail box, if you did buy it retail.

I'm guessing the VID is 1.2375v. That's pretty good actually. You'll be able to get higher on a lower amount of voltage, compared to another Q6600 with a higher VID.

But I'd say most would have to increase from stock, after around the 3.2 to 3.3GHz range.
