Default Yay I got a new Toy!

So my B3 q6600 arrived today.

Popped it in...set vcore to 1.475, multi to 8x, FSB to 452...it passed 30 min of Prime95...although things are a bit toasty. it goes to 1.49 under load (vdroop pencil mod) and is about 72-74c.

As you can see, these are a bit high for idle temps...but I'm going to be picking up another 120.2 rad and either a Dtek fuzion or EK supreme so that should bring temps down a bit...and I'm going to see if I can bring down the voltage a bit too and do some further stress testing with folding.




Anyway I'm very pleased as it's an excellent clocker for a roasty B3 stepping,
and I spent literally 2 min getting the first 3.6ghz settings right, just like my other e6600. With some new WC stuff maybe temps will be good enough to see if it can do even more.

Indeed it is. That's why I'm eager to get my new WC stuff.

However, running it 65-70c folding is just fine. It's not going to die, I know people who have had their b3's at 78-80c 24/7 folding.

Why not? It can handle it no problem.

Guide me to someone who has fried their C2D. These things are damned-near indestructable.

nope I'm not worried. If I thought 3.6ghz was the limit I'd not bother upgrading my WC system but I think this b3 may have some more in her yet.
