    Re: HOWTO: Overclock C2D Quads and C2D Duals - A Guide v1.6.1

    @brandito - orthos only does two cores. My experience with it is that it's buggy for quad core testing and frequently crashes when assigning CPU affinity since you do have to run two instances of it. Stick to p95 v25.x for stability testing.

    Re: HOWTO: Overclock C2D Quads and C2D Duals - A Guide v1.6.1

    This is the first time I've ever tried to overclock anything so I have a few questions. my q6600 is now at 3.060mhz with a 9x multiplier and a 340 mhz bus speed, and rated fsb of 1,360.1 mhz according to cpu-z. my core voltage is 1.280. the problem seems to be my idle temps are 56,55,49, 52. My active temps go into the high 60's.

    How do I increase core speed more, but have less heat? Eventually want max core speed of 3600, and I hear this chip and board can handle it.

    Thanks

    i think 3.6 might be a bit tough, i have heard of others getting it but you need top of the line air cooling and a bit of luck or water/active cooling.

    you're not going to get a the chip to run faster with less heat with the cooling you have. btw wht are you cooling it with?

    increasing voltage and clock speed will always make it run hotter.

    Motherboard is : GIGABYTE GA-73PVM-S2H Core 2 Quad/ GeForce 7100/ IEEE1394a/ HDMI/ A&V&GbE/ MATX Motherboard

    Fan is: ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler

    I have one other fan sucking air out of the side of the case, the cpu fan blows the air right out the back of the case, no intake fans.

    Case is: http://3btech.net/sibtstgacawi.html

    Thanks,

    i assume the case has 2 fans in back and 2 in front as well? i would switch the side fan around so it pulls air into the case, or remove it altogether so long as you have the two in the front and back.

    that's a pretty decent cpu cooler, the only improvement i can see if you stay air is to go with a thermalright ultra 120 extreme and possibly lap it and your cpu, that'll be your best bet for reaching 3.6, you might get lucky without those, but i wouldn't count on it. 4 cores are going to put out a lot of heat.

    Re: HOWTO: Overclock C2D Quads and C2D Duals - A Guide v1.6.1

    Actually I only have two fans in the whole case, one on the cpu and the other on the side plexiglass panel. No input fans sucking fresh air into the case. I did just hook up the the fan controller for the cpu fan and turned it up to full speed. As I'm typing this with no processing going on my 4 cpu's read 52, 51, 47, and 50 degrees C. When I am running my program that I built this computer for, they run 79, 78, 76, 72. So I haven't been running that program. I really want my cpu to last 3 or 4 years.

    My first build of a whole computer, only added cd/harddrive/ram/video cards before this task.

    Thanks,

    Dave

    yeah get some intake and exhaust fans, in the mean time make that side panel fan an intake fan.

    looks like your case accepts a couple intake and a couple exhausts i'd recommend filling those spots. looks like they're 80mm so i'd get some decent cfm but still quiet ones. probably some 25 or so cfm shouldn't be too loud at full speed. you have like no airflow in that case right now, so some proper ventilation will get you going on the right track, your load temps seem very high, especially for just 3ghz or so, you might want to invest in some as5 or similarly performning TIM and reseat your heatsink.
