Default C2D 6600@3520 / 1.36v

I just achieved a stable OC of my CPU running on Air Cooling at 3520mhz ( 1120mhz above stock ) with 1.36v and in quite good temps in comparison with most Air Cooled 6600s ive seen.
Opinions ?

PS : I runned Orthos for 9 hours during the night but didnt snapshot it thus i did a new orthos for 10+ mins to provide a snapshot. Temps were even lower ( -1,2 degrees ) after 9 hours with Orthos..Weird.


C2D6600@ 3520MHZ IDLE




C2D6600@ 3520MHZ FULL LOAD / STRESS

Not bad, when you run Orthos try running Small FFTs to push the CPU though.

Run dual prime95's and see if either fails the hardware test. I mean if you got that low voltage and those speeds good for you but i'd double check as said above with either the thing that puts the most stress on the CPU, or at least prime95's torture test.

Orthos is Prime95...only better


Very nice OC btw and better than mine with voltage requirements But if you see the temp drop at any time during orthos it might be throttling the cpu down; make sure to disable all that crap in the bios. Nice heatsink too, I'm running the same one and loving the lack of noise

Already disabeld everything about heat monitoring / throttling / fan autospeeds in BIOS.
Besides whatever OC can withstand 2 hours of Battlefield 2142 and 3dmark 06 is a stable OC
