    Re: Quad Core Thread: Overclocking, Cooling, Motherboards, Troubleshooting & General

    I've just got my new Q6600 G0 and have been running it at 2970GHz (330x9) for a few minutes after having tweaked the HSF to get all cores at roughly the same temp. I am using Orthos to stress test (two instances with affinity for each process set to two different cores).

    While this is fine for the Small FFT test, it does not work for blend test as one process gobbles up all the RAM (2 GB in total), and the other just stays in initialization phase. Is it possible to do Blend test on all four cores ?

    PS. Once I have done some more testing/tweaking, I will post some more information.

    OK, She's currently running 3.51GHz with a load temp of 67°C, which I don't think is too clever (plus Nero Home just quit on me, which makes me think it's not too stable). Prime 95 is still running though.

    What do you reckon, leave it as it is or drop things down a little?

    dagnabbit, it just blue screened on me.

    Cheers,
    Stephen

    I've got 44/45/43/44 idle on mine
    Hard burn with 4 copies of Orthos, 1 per core gives me
    69/69/65/65 after 10 hours

    You dont need to do 4x orthos mate, just grab the new prime95.

    Thanks for the link also. Got my bits arriving later today, touch wood, so will be revisiting all these threads over the next few days as I alternate beween breaking stuff & panicking

    Edit: Don't suppose you have a link to info on vsn 25.4? The Whats New I found only goes to 24.14.

    If anyone has any hardware info for me to add, please feel free to post it.

    Coolers, motherboards, waterblocks, general info and maybe some handy utilities that you might think worth a look

    Probe2 says my CPU temp is only 53oC yet CoreTemp's saying 65/65/61/62 running Prime 95 on 3 cores and F@H GPU on the 4th to hammer the whoel system, deffo need to sort the fans out as Probe is showing me the following..
    CPU Temp 53
    MB Temp 52
    VCore 1.24

    Hello, thinking about my temps
    Q6600 Zalman 9700
    P5k
    2x1 corsair 800
    Overcloked it yesterday to 3Ghz, 1.28vcore
    Temps on core temp was 51 51 45 46
    What can be solution to make temps all the same on both pairs of cores, or close to each other ?
    Without lapping,
    thanks

    Dont use Probe for CPU temps, its miles off. Its ok for voltages and maybe the motherboard temp.
    Stick to coretemp or speedfan (add 15c to the temps).

    You can configure speedfan to add an offset to individual temps.

    That's what I did to save me disabling the driver checking on boot up each time. I've run it along side coretemp often enough to know that adding 15° is accurate enough.
