    Cool Intel Core2 Duo E6850, Asus P5K Deluxe, Air Cooling

    Well this feels way better than christmas or anything else to me



    This time i tried out the Coolaboratory Liquid Metal Thermal Paste. Have to say it was a pita to put on,
    and i am not very happy with it. So please dont interpret too much in my current temps. I think in a
    few days i will go back to good ol' Arctic Silver 5. Also it has been mentioned in other forums that
    current software tools (CoreTemp, TAT etc.) do not accuratly measure temps of E6x50 series.
    19° idle looks too nice to me to be true.

    Here are some quick first screens:

    My lovely Pentium i had until a few hours ago:


    Now E6850 @ stock:



    E6850 @ 9x370 = 3.3 GHz vCore Stock, RAM @ 920:


    This already feels so good on stock settings compared to the P4, i am loving it already.
    Gonna be a busy day for me, of course i am hoping for 4.0 GHz on my air cooling


    Edit: 3.64 GHz 9x405 vCore 1.3625v, RAM @ 810 1:1



    Edit2: My current maximum:
    3.82 GHz 9x425, vCore 1.4750, RAM @ 850 1:1 2.10v

    FSB Termination Voltage: 1.50v, Northbridge Voltage: 1.55v PCIE: 100 MHz
    Transaction Booster, DRAM Static Read, Clock Over-Charge: AUTO



    Someone mentioned on another forum that the current temp readings are very wrong,
    something like -15° caused by wrong calculation, or w/e. Well based on that, i am a bit
    scared to go any further than this. Current load temp reaches 50 for me, plus those 15 = 65.
    Anyone know whats the max temp for G0? I dont want to up the vCore a lot more than this.
    Very happy with the results so far, even at stock i love this cpu. I will do some other
    benches now, and then start from scratch, following Clunk's oc guide.

    Ooh, very cool...where did you get it from?

    I had a quick look on Scan and couldn't find it, but its one of the CPU's im leaning towards for my build in August.

    XE.com says thats about £188...if the price drops around the 22nd to around E6600 levels (£142.16 on scan justnow), then my CPU decision is made!

    What was so bad about comtech.de?

    They (apparently) got it on stock last friday already, i ordered immediatly, but they just shipped it now, after a few threatening emails and such. Long story. I am just happy i finally got it. Tho the pricecut is only a bit more than a week away now

    Yeah, we'll see how much cheaper it gets...

    You are a better OC'ing person than me (who's never done it), would this CPU go very much further than stock with 'regular' 6400/8500 (probably 6400, unless the 8500 was only a lil' bit more expensive) RAM, or does it need decent RAM to go very far?

    Uhm i wouldnt say at all that i am a better OC'ing person hehe. I just started myself with this stuff a while ago, bloody noob. About the RAM tho, you can get lucky with good 6400 RAM, like myself. I was a bit worried about my OCZ 6400, until i started to oc it with my old Pentium4, went without problems from 800 to 960 MHz, still at 4-4-4-15 timings. I like it a lot. Not sure yet if i can go higher with the RAM, i think back then the P4 had reached its limit. Will see how far i can get now. But i am already planning on selling the OCZ very soon, and replace them with Crucial 8400, because at the moment i can afford the difference.

    I just started following Clunk's guide, and with everything set to default or auto, it goes without
    any trouble straight to 3.6 ghz. Sure a really nice cpu imho

    At the moment i have reached 1.500v vCore, but already getting very tricky just to get it booting.
    Also my RAM is limiting me now, it works at 1000mhz 5-5-5-20 stable, but if i want 1:1, i cant get any
    higher with it. Hopefully i can get the Crucial 1066mhz soon and then try more.
    Because of that i chose a lower multiplier now, 8x480mhz = 960mhz ram. Works so far.
    But yet i didnt have any luck to get 3.9 ghz or above, 3.8x is the limit for me it seems.
    Might try with a tiny bit more vCore later.

    You will get your 12h Orthos screens, but i dont even have the cpu for 12 hours
    Gimme a bit hehe.


    Few quick shots of Everest, have to say i love that Memory bandwidth hehe






    Looking better already, 3.92ghz are done. Somehow i couldnt get higher, no matter what settings/voltage, with 9x set.
    Working with 8x490 now and RAM 1:1 at 980. 1.5625v vCore in Bios tho. It seems PC Probe is showing the correct temp too,
    60° is a lot already, or not?

    Well we told you you'd half your Superpi scores Take it you believe us now
    Look forward like everyone else to seeing you get to 4K. Clunk & I have been there but certainly on my part it's a suicide run. Look forward to seeing you more stable

    Who'd have thought xmas could come in July

    Thanks for pics.

    Re: Finally got my E6850 (not ES)

    Updated my RAM now to OCZ Platinum 'SLI-Ready' DDR2-1066 5-5-5-15 2x1GB.
    Wanted to get Crucials first, but now they arent in stock anywhere here. And i know the SLI-Ready stuff is bollocks,
    but those where at the same price as the normal OCZ but offer 5-5-5 instead of 5-6-6, so i went with the SLI ones.







    1gb+ memread isnt that bad i guess, and <50ns at the same time.
    Just a shame my cpu wont go above 3.91ghz. Would have been nice to have this ram with a 4ghz.
