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.

*edit*
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.
