I have had this system for about 2 years and not touched a thing on it. In the late 90s I overclocked everything I owned, now I usually just buy fast enough to make me happy. But now that I have a child, money is tighter, so I decided to oc my system. I have: q6600 g0 stepping vid of 1.3125 Gigabyte ga-ep35-ds3l 4gb ram, 2 are PDP Systems 6400, 1 is micron 5200 and one is micron 5300 radeon hd 4850
I recently bought a Thermaltake V1 LED from best Buy for $22 (on clearance)
Today I upped the BUS to 333, giving me 3ghz on the processor. I have had it this way all day, no crashes, and am monitoring it with CPUZ, Core Temp and Easy Tune 6. With Prime95 doing a torture test I am seeing core temps of no higher than 52C.
CPUZ shows current voltage at 1.200, Easy Tune says 1.22, and I have it set to 1.281 on easytune. Room temp is about 26-27 C.
Does this look good to you all? Anything I should look out for?
More abouttrack q6600
nothing at all nice voltage
oh yeah and i idle as low as 33 C.
Is CPUZ considered to be extremely accurate as far as the voltage? I see that the voltage does fluctuate some, right now it shows 2.32V and 2.5V
