Topic says it all. I'm only interested in your vcore @ 9x333 if you own a g0 Q6600 and you minimized the vcore and if it's stable to 2x orthos or prime95 v25.3 for over say 4 hours. It would also be cool to see your VID as reported in coretemp. So I guess I'd like to see two things:
1) Your minimized vcore @ 9x333 (g0 q6600)
2) A screenshot of Coretemp under load to see your VID and temps
i have a q6600 g0
i can get 9x333 at 1.21500v , less give me errors on prim95 after about 4hours, on 1.21500 can get up to 24hr without errors. i was doing some tests with low voltages, it can boot at 1.08v but windows just load after raising to 1.18v. right now im doing some tests with my ram.
heres the link for screen
I'm at 333 and I needed to put my g0 at 1.318v and Orthos ran stable for a couple hours. I might be able to go lower now since I am in a much cooler room, but I stuck with that voltage for now since it is stable and still runs cool(33-37 idle, 49-57 full Orthos load)
My GO uses 1.250v in bios (1.240v in CPU-Z) thats 9X333 Prime95 stable for 12 hrs. (Temps 50, 60, 50, 60C) I have not tried to find the minimum volts yet at this speed. I might try tonight.
My VID as I first reported to you was 1.1625 during the 1st few days before I started OCing. I have screenshot of it. Here's the bizarre thing...., now as I look at Core Temp 0.95, it reports the VID as 1.2750. Does that make any sense? Does the VID change with overclocking? I thought it was a tested value of the processor itself and wouldn't change. Any insight?
I did note that my vcore before OCing was 1.05v (that's pretty low isn't it?)
I lowered mine to 1.28125, CPU-Z reads my core voltage at 1.232. I might be able to go lower but haven't tried. I know that at 333 it was unstable at 1.26something. I did notice that every time I lowered it some my temps lowered a couple degrees too so it was worth it.
BTW noob question but how do I get a screenshot? Never did it before.
I ran orthos stably at 1.265V for that setting for 10+ hours. HOWEVER, it couldn't handle supreme commander until I placed the voltage level to 1.2875. Supreme commander is now my "tool" to gauge stability. I would think that you'd have to run orthos for 24hours before it is considered stable.
