Not bad at all thats one of the best I've seen for a Q6600. What type of cooling are you using?
January 7, 2008 1:06:18 PM

Tuniq Tower 120, thanks, my buddy got me into this forum b/c Im sturring up a buzz at my old one.
Related resources
January 7, 2008 1:10:16 PM

Wow I was expecting at least water cooling! Some people on this forum are going to be very jealous of your Q6600. I know you've got a G0 version but still you must have got a good one to get an overclock like that with air.

Its probably written in your first post somewhere but I couldn't find it - what vcore are you using and what are your temps??
January 7, 2008 1:27:10 PM

believe it or not, i had to go all the way up to 1.8-1.9v, but i have a solid overclock of 3.835ghz at 1.52v at 33c idle & 52c load

temps on the 4 ghz where 33c idle and 65c load
January 7, 2008 1:30:15 PM

whats nice about the overclock is that i got the timings down to 5-5-5-15 at 1:1 ratio and when i get my 8800 gts back im going to run 3dmark01-06 test at 4ghz
January 7, 2008 5:49:39 PM

I have a HARD time trusting those temps. A dual core under load at 3.6 with TRUE 120 hits over 60c.... You are saying you have a quad core, on air, at 3.9! only loading at 52c?? I have to question it, and you should too.

What are you using to monitor your temperatures?
January 7, 2008 6:26:13 PM

Am I alone in my disbelief? Cnumartyr, if you're out there, is this even possible?

I only ask, because cnu has his at 3.6 and is pushing the load temps close to uncomfort, with lapped CPU and lapped TRUE 120.
January 7, 2008 6:48:57 PM

no im saying that i have a quad core that runs no higher than 55c at 1.52v at 3.835ghz
January 7, 2008 6:51:01 PM

That still sounds awefully low. What software were you using for thermal monitoring?
January 7, 2008 6:51:18 PM

running the cpu at 3.9ghz resulted in a 60-66c load temp and if i pushed the cpu to 4 ghz i got 72c and cpu failure but i had the voltage at 1.8-19v
January 7, 2008 6:52:11 PM

everest, orthos, and bios
January 7, 2008 6:54:59 PM

Did you lap your CPU and HS?
January 7, 2008 6:55:06 PM

if you guys dont believe me then that is fine, i know the truth b/c i saw it with my own eyes and i mounted the tuniq properly with artic silver and let it set for a day before i booted it up to let the thermal paste set and made sure that the paste had proper connections with the heatsink and cpu, i know these are right b/c, i had a stock cooler and i was getting the same temps others were getting, i got lucky with this one i guess
January 7, 2008 6:55:48 PM

nope, didnt have too, the were perfectly flat, i measured the hsf and the cpu
January 7, 2008 6:57:55 PM

I don't mean to doubt you or act like I don't trust you. I just don't want to see you destroy the CPU due to erroneous temperature readings. If those are indeed correct, then wow, nice job!! Those temperatures are truely phenomenal.
January 7, 2008 7:03:20 PM

its not that at all, i ran my cpu at 1.8-1.9v for 2-3 hrs yesterday and i scared the crap out of me, believe on that but now after my experience i believe that myth about going over 1.46v on the new cpu's is totally false, i and my friend run ours at 1.5-1.55 all day long and we never get temps over 50-56c, that is way below the average with a stock cooler, i believe voltage to the cpu has nothing to do with blowing your cpu up if you can control the temps below, and i mean way below thermal failure for the stock specs for a cpu, do u agree
January 7, 2008 7:11:35 PM

I agree, but what I'm trying to relay is that you are running a QUAD core, at .15v higher voltage AND higher frequency than my dual core and you are loading almost 10c lower than me. I have a TRUE120 and a high CFM fan as well. That seems improbable. If you did it, then congratulations!!

Maybe I'm forgetting to ask the most important question. What is your ambient temp?
January 7, 2008 7:13:55 PM

25c
January 7, 2008 7:19:04 PM

Something is wrong then.... either you got the "Golden" Q6600 and the PERFECT Tuniq, or I, and the majority of overclockers have done something very wrong.

Just so you know what I'm referencing. My 6750 @ 3.6GHz, 1.425v will peak 67c on the hottest core and ~60c for the Tcase. This was during Small FFT Prime 95 over 24 hours. Also for reference, my monitoring suite was calibrated before hand using CompuTronix's method.
January 7, 2008 7:21:13 PM

ran orthos and everest torture last night for 6 hrs at 1.52v at 3.735 ghz and never eclipsed 56c
January 7, 2008 7:21:47 PM

and in my bios i have it set to 1.5825v
January 7, 2008 7:23:07 PM

in other forums, i tell them the same thing as i am telling you, its all in how you apply the thermal paste and the hsf at the same time and you have to let it set over nite
January 7, 2008 7:46:46 PM

It's really not.. but anyways.

What's ambient? That's the key question missing from this.

I would love to see some screen shots though bro. I'd like to see 10 minutes of loaded operation with CPU-Z open and some temp monitoring software.. It'd be kickass.
January 7, 2008 7:47:27 PM

No screens? I dont believe you.
January 7, 2008 7:48:47 PM

That's weird cause AS5 only sets up properly after a couple hundred hours of use. I've built many machines, and all have AS5 properly applied and the HSF mounted flush and snug. It still makes no sense to me how your setup is running that cool. For the time being, I'll just say good job, but I hope you are right.
January 7, 2008 7:52:21 PM

ok, heres what ill do, ill go home tonight and take out my digital camera and record it, if you all are in favor of that, i will upload the video to youtube for you and post the link, so if your up for it, say I and ill go home today in about 2-3 hrs and post you a link but only if you guys want me to do it b/c im not wasting my time if your not into looking at it
January 7, 2008 7:53:06 PM

cnu, he said ambient was 25c

CPU aside (which I don't think you have a great one considering voltage requirements for stability) you must have an epic Tuniq.

I don't need digital anything. Just take some screenies with temp software open, CPU-Z open, and some kind of stress testing program open.
January 7, 2008 7:53:50 PM

sorry, thanatos is right its 25c
January 7, 2008 7:56:51 PM

no problem will do and post in increments of 1 hr starting at 6pm my time which it is 3 pm here so in 3 hrs you will have your screen shots

please list exactly what you want to:

everest temp screen with orthos and everest torture running and cpuz running as well, anything else, i will post bios shots as well
January 7, 2008 7:57:38 PM

3875 MHz @ 1.56 vCore the Q6600 will put off about 240 Watts of Heat.

With an Ambient temp of 25C to get 52C load you'd have to get about.. hmm.. 0.1125 C/W from a cooler. The published best on the website is around 0.15 C/W.

Anyways, screenies would be plenty.

It's still going to be hard for me to believe those temps are accomplished by a Tuniq, either way. If you really want to include the camera that's your call.
January 7, 2008 8:13:42 PM

Did you calibrate it???.....Those seem amazingly low.

On a E2180 at 1.39xxx v I get 65 on stock cooling. i understand youre using a Tuniq but that seems amazingly low.

If its all calibrated and still that low than BRAVO. Thats one hell of a Cpu

To get stable at those speed with those voltages that CPU isn't anything special.

The special thing is how the Tuniq is getting those temperatures.
January 7, 2008 8:31:40 PM

but is it actually getting those temps is the real question??? (calibrate)

I was off by 5C but I've heard that the Q6600 can be off by 15+

You should get CoreTemp and use that. If you already have and have calibrated then that Tuniq is great......how much you want for it??
January 7, 2008 8:32:07 PM

I do have to ask u this, if these temps are wrong dont you think the cpu would have failed, and if the temps are true then i should be able to post these benchmarks and thats what i did b/c if they were not true then i could not have ran these benchmarks to get these scores, all i did was copy and paste them, if i would have had hirer temps the cpu would have failed and i would not have been able to get the benchmarks, true?
January 7, 2008 8:33:36 PM

i can also post the benchmarks at 3.835 ghz too as well

I was just wondering could you show how you worked out how much Watts of heat the CPU produced and the C/W of the cooler? It'd be helpfull for future o/c's etc..
January 7, 2008 8:36:50 PM

At times I do not believe temperature affects whether the cpu affects stability as much as voltage does. If it was for example actually at 75C it might still past, because i've seen overclocks like that, but 75 is pretty uncomfortable
January 7, 2008 8:39:52 PM

i dont know, the only thing i do know is that cpu failed when it got over 70c, i saw the temps on everest and once it got to 70c it would shut off/ reboot
January 7, 2008 8:43:25 PM

If you can, can you run speedfan or Coretemp. Just wondering because if theyre true, I want to know where you got that Tuniq
January 7, 2008 8:45:23 PM

yes i manually change the speed of the tuniq and it reports correctly in everest computer/sensor report, and it reports immediately too
January 7, 2008 8:47:15 PM

wow.....what did you change?
January 7, 2008 8:48:22 PM

just the speed of the fan on the knob that i placed in a component tray on the back of a antec 900 case
January 7, 2008 9:28:00 PM

What's there not to believe?

For all we know his PC is next to a window where the ambient reported by his thermostat isn't the same air temperature as his PC. He could have his heat blowing hell into every room while he's got a window open and his PC is on the floor.

It sounds like his temperature delta between idle and load is 27C. Does that sound right to anybody else? It doesn't sound off. Question his ability to take proper temp. readings but it doesn't sound far off from the truth.
January 7, 2008 9:30:35 PM

The Delta would stay the same if he needed to offset all the temps. Just wondering if it was off.

I had to add 5C to each core
January 7, 2008 9:36:01 PM

Oops...the temp delta is more like 33...but I was looking at his 4GHz overclock with that higher vcore.


Anyways, perhaps he's not giving as much voltage as he believes. Vdroop much?
January 7, 2008 9:43:12 PM

I say that because I have a hard time believing his Tuniq had the capacity to keep up with the thermal transfer necessary to keep from burning up his CPU @ 1.8-1.9v
January 7, 2008 11:14:29 PM

ok im back, i had to go take my son around the neighborhood on his 4 wheeler, then i had to let him open his christmas presents from my mom and dad that they couldnt send 2 weeks ago, and then i had to figure out that darn vtech toy they bought him and teach him how to play it, the boy is 4 yrs old and can beat lego starwars 1&2 and all the starwars battlefieldfront games on a 360 and cant figure out a darn joystick toy like those vtechs, i will post a pic of rig and it is sitting by a glass window and there is 2 feet of show outside though, and i will post the temps in the bios at start up. now this is now when i just got home so bear with me and ill post pics every 1-2 hrs tonight and i will post pics of my temps at 1.8v and 1.9v
