    ye its stable using p95 as a benchmarking agent.

    lowest cpu voltage i got it stable at is 1.4125 set in bios. AI suite says cpu voltage is 1.376 volts

    yes coretemp is being used

    Re: q6600 (B3) at 3.4Ghz?

    i was only running one cos it looks like it stresses all cores to 100%.

    shall i run 4 instances of and assign one to each core?
