Default q6600 stock cooler 3.6Ghz

Well as I got my PC home last night (i did a training at work with it) I forgot to plug in my mouse and keyboard, so it obviously yelled at me.

so as I plugged them in and restarted the comp, the thought crossed my mind to see if I could push the CPU just a little more on the stock cooler. I was at 2.8Ghz on stock voltage, temps were 35idle/50load.

so I hit a 399Mhz FSB so I could keep in in range of the RAM (didn't feel like OC'ing the RAM) bumped the Vcore to 1.40 and hit F10 fully expecting a BSOD

Well it didn't BSOD and vista was FAST. Then i threw orthos at it and over an hour i got one error (it needs a little more power). Temps were 45idle/65load

Needless to say I am freaking stoked to get the water cooling setup finished to push this CPU. My goal is 4.0Ghz and I think i may get pretty close if not hitting it.

Good luck w/ the 4. I was hoping to get there Prime stable but I have to push too much voltage through mine. I'm already sitting at 1.58V as it is.

Thanks! I was really suprised after my dud of an E6600 (max stable 3.2) I thought I had some bad chip luck.

Here are some screenies right after my 3d05 run in Vista.

That's an amazing OC with only 1.41 volts! As for your temps, if 3Dmark had ended, the temps will drop a lot immediately. You need to log the temps and see how they were during the simulation or run prime 95 while keeping an eye on the core temps.

Yup I did, 68*C 100% load all four cores is the highest I have seen.

I almost consider it stupid LOL I just did it to see what I could see

I guess now that you mention that I should down clock it a little, until i get the water cooling on it.

At least you know with WC you will hit 3.6Ghz no problem...
