View Full Version : Max Vcore, Q6600 G0

I'm seeing a lot of people who push their quads well over 1.5v, even to 1.65v, makes me wonder how conservative I am with my 1.5v, watercooled, with triple rad. Temps are okay at 3.6Ghz, 1.5v, but realistically speaking, how much voltage can be put through?

To me 1.5v is pushing it ,but if it is water cooled and your tempertures are not that high,I guess you can crank it until it frys.Alot of people look at the low price and say even if you fry it ,it not like it one of those $1000 cpu's.But myself I don't like going over 1.45v ,but I am only on air.
1.5v would be my limit too.
OC it like you stole it :D
within reason, as long as your temps are ok, i wouldnt worry too much about voltage. key words: within reason, heh.

I pushed 1.6v through my E6600 on Air and I didn't see temps go past the 65*C mark under load.
this was with a tuniq tower.
