    Re: Q6600 owners... what is your VID?



    there is mine, i know its overclocked but the voltage was the same at stock speed.

You are posting the vcore read from the BIOS which will vary under idle/load conditions - not the same thing.
    In that case I won't be able to participate since I'm on Vista 64bit which requires driver signing to be off. (and as far as I know the new hotfixes take care of that as well)

    Re: Q6600 owners... what is your VID?

    Ned, I think he wants the Voltage quads are running at, regardless of what the chip says, ie, what voltage are you using for overclocking, are you undervolting etc. Core temp is wanted for consistency.

    Re: Q6600 owners... what is your VID?

    Ned has it correct, what we've got is a listing of the programmed default vcore (VID) for different quads. I think one of the goals was to find out possibly what factor lower default VID may play in any one cpu's overall OC'ability compared to higher default VID cpus.

    B3's generally having a higher avg VID while G0's are trending towards a lower VID and generally a higher avg oc as well.

    Re: Q6600 owners... what is your VID?

    @MJD1964:

    So you have 4 different G0's with the following VIDs:

    1.2750
    1.2750
    1.2875
    1.2250

    How does the 1.2250 compare to the 1.2875 for lowest stable vcore @ 9x333 (or whatever setting)? Is there any significant gain?

    The whole reason I started this thread was to collect data on VIDs and when someone would get get an unusually low one, I'd PM them and see what their lowest stable vcore was at various settings. At this point, it's unclear to me if the VID means anything at all. I have read about people with higher VIDs running o/c'ed stable systems @ much lower vcores. I have also read about people with lower VIDs doing the opposite. My own B3 for example has a VID of 1.2875 but it can run prime95 stable @ 1.1150 @ 9x266 and 1.2625 @ 9x333.

    Watch for an update to the data today; since I haven't updated it in nearly a month, there are lost of new data points.

    Re: Q6600 owners... what is your VID?

    Okay all, this will be the final update; please don't post new VID data.

    I'm not totally sure the integrity of the data collected is that high. What I mean by that is I have read several reports of different reported VIDs for the same chip on different boards. I have also read about the VID changing based on the speedstep state and other factors.

    I started this thread hoping to see some sort of correlation between VID magnitude and vcore @ a given o/c level. I have received mixed reports on this front as well. I think the bottom line is there isn't a correlation between VID and overclockibility.

    Since you guys took the time to reply to the post, the least I can do is update the data for the last time:

    Replies for B3: 102
    Replies for G0: 158
    Total replies: 260 (a great response!)

    I updated the first post of the thread with the new histograms.

    Thanks to all who replied.

    Re: Q6600 owners... what is your VID?

    1.275V


    Brand new Q6600, reported as G0 by CPU-Z, but marked as B0. Not sure I understand that bit - I'm still fairly new to Intel.

    Vcore (as are all other settings) is still on auto, and reported as 1.22V

    And yes, I know you said no new data...
