Damn that looks a lot nicer on the inside than my rig, I just cannot be ****ed with cable ties!

Rig is in signature, but I left out that Im using an Antec 900 Ultimate gaming case (with its swanky blue LEDs and huge intake at the top). Also a Tuniq Tower 120-LFB CPU Cooler. Seems to keep things nice and cold. Left Prime95 running over night and it was rock solid, should I push for 3.6? I heard something about voltage droop on this motherboard too, should I change the voltage?

Not very good. G0 should be better than that. My B3 will do 3.75 Prime95 stable. G0 should hit 3.7 - 3.8 Ghz, more on water.

That's not the highest I can push it. I'm happy where it's at for the moment.

Look at his vcore conroejoe, doc isnt hardly even pushing the chip so im sure it could do more. Also overclocking is not a guaranteed thing.

Yeah likewise, I think 3.6 would be available (and Im on air too), but Crysis is running like butter with the very high DX9 thing... So I don't see the point.

Default Re: Kentsfield/Quad-Core Overclocking Thread

So, I recently upgraded to a Q6700 w/Zalman 9700cn cooler. I've got the processor bumped up to 3.1ghz, and I had to raise vcore to 1.35v to get it stable for more than 20 seconds on quad-thread prime95 (one core would throw a rounding error, different one each time, with less than 1.35).

Anyway, CoreTemp is reporting that cores 1 & 2 are 5 degrees hotter than 3 & 4. Is this normal? It's not too big of a deal, my absolute max temperatures never hit 60 on the hotter cores, but it's a bit strange to me. And yes, the grease was applied evenly, though I'm open to the possibility that it might've slid around a bit.

coretemp shows core 1 and 2 about 5c above 3 and 4 as well. but speed fan shows them all the same.. odd.

Then again speedfan is showing the core temps between 5-10c lower than coretemp... which one is more accurate?
