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

Thanks in advance!

Want B3's?

And why 333? Assuming that's a stable OC for most people?

Just as a point of reference... sure what are your values?

Got screwed out of a G0 from frys..

B3 9x333 Vcore:1.3125
9x300 Vcore:1.24

Orthos x2 for 6+hours on both

ps. still cant core temp to work :/  vista 64bit

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

btw, im getting 0.01v drop at load.

great info, thanks ghost

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?)

My G0 Q6600 doesn't do 9x333 at all, and I tried all voltages from VID to 1.35V!! This chip sucks!

What gives? (can't even get into Windows!)

Final results:
1.200Vcore: 2800
1.275Vcore: 2900 [VID = 1.275]
1.300Vcore: 2945
1.350Vcore: 2955
1.400Vcore: 2955
1.425Vcore: 2955
1.475Vcore: 2935 (overcoming the Scythe Ninja here)

Im going to overclock mine as far as I can at stock voltage, not bothered about landmarks.

I made it to 333 at 1.25 Vcore easily. I havent tried to find my minimum voltage yet.

At 1.25Vcore, at 350MHz I found that I got Prime95 errors quickly and eventually a blue screen.

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.

graysky, here's some info for you in addition to what you requested:

Q6600 G0
9 x 333
Core Temp VID = 1.3000
BIOS Vcore = 1.2125
Load = Prime95
CPU-Z Vcore = 1.184
SpeedFan Charts Vcore = 1.184
Ambient = 22c
SpeedFan CPU = 38c
SpeedFan Hottest Core = 49c

Hope this helps,

Sparky, to get the screenshot, hit your "print screen" key. This saves a pic of your screen in the paste buffer.

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.

Hmmm mine doesn't seem to be working.
