Overclocking: Dual- vs. Quad-Core CPUs

Overclocking IV - Dual-Core E6750 At 3.50 GHz

Like we said - the G0 stepping offers a lot of overclocking potential. Our E6750 went to 3.50 GHz without much effort, once again completing our Prim95 torture test without incident.

Still going strong at 3.50 GHz

In order to achieve this overclock, we now had to tweak the core voltage a good deal more. The CPU only became stable at 3.50 GHz in Prime95 after we increased the core voltage by 0.0625 Volts to 1.41250 Volts.

The GEIL memory was always set to CL4.0-4-4-12

Memory frequency increases further, reaching DDR2-876 at CL 4.0-4-4-12.

Still stable at 31.6% over nominal.
