I have my E6600 running at 3.51ghz and it idles at 39 C and 48 C on full load. I have the big typhoon installed plus i replaced the typhoon fan with a silverstone fan that pushes 110 cfm. From 3.0ghz to 3.5ghz I only got a 3 degree change on full load. I'm thinking I could push this baby to 4.0! Any opinions? Concerns? Thanks.
We need more information like mobo, RAM, settings before we can really give you any advice. Just asking us to evaluate your claim is like deciding a lawsuit without looking at the evidence... not a good idea
I don't know about your hardware but definitely the Big Typhoon is very good but may not be enough to cool down that E6600 pass 3.6Ghz. Who know's try it for yourself and test for stability and closely monitor the temps. Like I said everything is good for extreme overclocking except the cpu cooler. You might want to look for water cooling.
We can't really tell much from that screenshot other than your FSB is 400. You need to provide us with memory settings, because that is likely to be your upcoming wall, if not the motherboard's FSB wall. I assume since you have 5-5-5-12 DDR2 800 you are on a 1:1 memory timing, because if you were on 5/4 we would have some real issues because that would be DDR2 1000, and with your RAM I am not sure I see that happening. You may get 850 out of them, 900 if your are lucky. So, I am guessing you can get 3.75 out of it , maybe. That would be pushing the FSB another 15MHz or so and thats when you start running into walls (410 area). If you hit a wall don't be disappointed, you hit 3.6 on air
Nb vcore = Northbridge voltage
CPU core = CPU voltage
Just guessing, haven't seen an Intel based rig's bios is a long time lol.
