Kentsfield/Quad-Core Overclocking Thread
 
/me casts Resurrect.

So all you quad-core users, post your overclocking results and techniques here!

I've got a Kensfield ES Q6600 Rev B0, Stepping 4 (oh yeah, the unlocked version!) and my 24x7 OC is 11x266 for 2934. I can game at 3300 (11x300) but I have odd issues with rebooting and can't pass a 4-core Prime95 Torture Test.

Since I installed this ThermalRight Ultra120, my temps went from 54/71 idle/load down to 34/50 at my current OC.

Well I lowered the clock to 3.20GHz for now. 3.47GHz was stable and all but very hot. I'm gonna order a Freezone as soon as they're available here. With the Freezone I'm gonna use 3.47GHz again or maybe even higher...

If you are interested here is an update for FSB overclocking on your board (lee63)

It's for another PC. Parts are alway in flux.

Heavy, was your QX6700 at 3.47GHz Quad-Prime stable?


Yes, prime stable, Orthos, or anything I threw at it. It was completely solid at 3.47.

My only tip is to tilt the system to the open side to make sure the pump primes correctly. Otherwise, it was a little noisy until I did that for a couple of minutes.

Re: Kentsfield/Quad-Core Overclocking Thread
 
Yep, the Silverstone Zeus 850W is excellent. It runs my GTX's just fine. I'd recommend at least an 800W'er, and I'd recommend a name brand like Silverstone, PCPower&Cooling, Enermax, or Zippy.
