I have a q6600 go 2.4ghz
Its clocked to 3.0ghz by just changing the fsb to 333x9 and unlinked with ram the same at 800mhz.

My question is and I better to leave as is or set the fsb to 400 and multiplier to 8 so my ram is in sync with the cpu speed & will the fsb and or multiplier lower my temps at all.

Im a noob when it comes to this

  1. I've already answered this question in your previous thread -

    Temperatures are influenced primarily by Vcore, CPU cooler, ambient temperature and clock speed. 3.2 Ghz at either 356 x 9 or 400 x 8 will have no effect on temperatures, however, 400 x 8 is more desirable for the 1:1 ratio. Also, when overclocking, never run Vcore in "Auto" as it will typically apply more voltage than necessary to maintain stability, which in turn increases temperatures.
  2. Hi Comp,
    can I ask...does lowering the multiplier mean less Vcore is needed? In which case 3.2GHz at 8x400 is 'better' in terms of voltage (and therefore temp) than 333x9.

    The Vcore required for 3.2 Ghz is unaffected by FSB / multiplier combinations. 3.2 Ghz requires the same Vcore as does 3.2 Ghz, as does 3.2 Ghz ...
  4. Roger, so what I read was bollocks. Cheers
  5. All processors are unique in their voltage tolerance, thermal behavior and overclock potential. A quad core processor will only overclock as high as it's weakest core, however the Voltage ID, or VID, is a rough indication of how much Vcore is required to attain a given clock frequency.

    The Q6600 was released with VID's in increments of 0.125 volts, which range from 1.200 (best) to 1.325 (worst). Regardless, even Q6600's with a 1.325 VID are still capable of overclocking to 3.6 Ghz. Overclocking is about understanding Intel's specifications, and not exceeding them.

    Q6600 G0:

    Vcore Max = 1.5
    CPU temp = 71c
    Core temp = 76c

    You can read your Q6600's VID by downloading Real Temp, then clicking on the "Settings" button.
