Default Re: Overclocking frustrations! E6600/Evga 680i


I don't trust Orthost at all... it's just an older version of Prime95 with a GUI that can do dual cores (dual affinitys) at the same time.

Listen to Star Trek Scotty:
[TMYOTP,TEIITSUTD]
"The more you overtake the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain!"

Be a man use Dual Prime95's
Here's a guide on how to setup Dual 95's:

YOU DO NOT NEED TO INCREASE FSB and CHIPSET VOLTAGES
(At least not for overclocks under 3.6Ghz)
You're just adding more heat for no reason.

Quote:
CPU FSB Voltage - 1.5v
Nforce SPP Voltage - 1.50v
Just to be sure, you need to disable all of these:
CPU Thermal control - disabled
C1E Enhanced holt state - disabled
Intel Speedstep - disabled
CPU Spread Spectrum - disabled
HT Spread Spectrum - disabled
PCIe Spread Spectrum SPP - disabled
PCIe Spread Spectrum MCP - disabled
Sata Spread Spectrum - disabled




For me:
3.660Ghz stable @ 1.42v (Dual Prime95 12 hours)
3.375Ghz stable @ 1.35v (Dual Prime95 12 hours)

I like the 3.375 OC better. The memory is 1:1 at this FSB (1500) and the CPU(s) run a whole lot cooler. Also I like the Vcore a lot better
3.660Ghz = 66C Prime95 Peak, 60C Prime95 AVG, 54C Gaming
3.375Ghz = 60C Prime95 Peak, 56C Prime95 AVG, 50C Gaming


E6600
EVGA 680i
2GB Crucial Ballistic DDR2-1000 5-5-5-15 (2T) @ 1000Mhz 4-4-4-12 (2T)
EVGA 8800GTS
