Default Re: G0 Q6600 overclocking

Yeh, I settled on 1.3v max for the NB from 1.1 stock

The main issue I was having was a core failing with a rounding error in P95. If I ran Tripcode Explorer it'll get hotter than I've seen with prime 95, and it actually would cause it to BSOD when p95 wouldn't.

0x00000124 was the BSOD BCC code that I was getting. It seemed to happen regardless of voltages that I was able to throw around comfortably... so I backed off the clock speed a bit.

What are you guys running your voltages at for those 3.6ghz overclocks? I find it very hard to believe that my chip is THAT much worse... 3.4ghz @ 1.5 is a huge difference compared to 3.6ghz @ 1.35....
