Overclock.

C2D e6600 @ 3ghz was getting @ most 6.6MCeM's

then i decided i was tired of getting slaughtered, so i decided that overclocking was my friend

e6600 @ 3.4 now getting 7.7MCeM's

it'll probably level off around 6.9 when all is said and done.. but wewt for OC'ing

toobad it takes 1.5 Vcore to reach 3.6ghz

Ouch I do 3220 @ 1.36

What week is ur 6600?

I wish i had a decent enough board to let me go higher :(

Im 1:1 460 which is mobos fsb wall..

after a while of running @ those clocks it has tailed off, now i am just over 6.0 CeM's

however i restarted the svc. and now im up again @ 7.4

Mine tails off too.
I find a restart about once a week keeps it on top.
is that 7.4 Cems per service?
I'm getting around 5.5 to 6 per service on my 6300 @3200 mhz

Hmmm... tailing off is very strange indeed. Never experienced it, although it does happen when I'm running other stuff on it... Guys... Just an idea... is your rate changing anything to to with finishing one block and starting another? Cos you do know that different k/n pairs give different rates.

Yea, don't think it's that though.
If you just shut down and restart, carrying on with the same numbers you instantly get a better output.

I better start reading my OC for Dummies Book. Diablo may need some OCing

Are you running 2 services or 1?
I Imagine that's 2, Still a fair increase over what I get at 3200 though.

Just one, the other core is running a secret special surprise for some people :D

toobad it takes 1.5 Vcore to reach 3.6ghz

pump that voltage up, i have 1.525 going through my E6400 with a big typhoon.
I was thinking of upping it to 1.575 or 1.6. These cpu's can handle quite a bit of heat, but most people are scared and still using the 90nm AMD standards regarding temps.

i currently load at 60C with the BT and use to load at 65C with the stock cooler.

i have not heard of a single person burning up their C2D yet do to overheat. My next stop will be 70C at full load.:slobber:


OC that bad boy to the MAX:eek:

Intels can take up to 80C without too much trouble (talking from experience). Never blew any CPU due to overheating yet... I have even seen one at 120 for a split second when the cooler wasn't mounted correctly, and the poor P3 is still working fine :)

I blew one of my overclocked Xeons on the weekend. A 2.4Ghz running at 3.8Ghz with 1.6v. The other one in their still works fine so not sure what the problem was it’s been running fine like that for over a year… pisses me off!! Not going to be easy to find another one that will do 3.8Ghz again.

Coretemp is showing 69c & 70c running WCG and DPAD. This is with 1.6625v on watercooling. Haven't had any noticable heat-related problems. Once I add the x1900XT I'm getting from AFI to the loop, I think the temp might go up a bit, since it's all on a PA160.

Im one of those people, i still regard 50* C as the absolute max i want my CPU.

and its close right now @ 49* C Fully loaded.

Perhaps if im feeling frisky :P i'll up it and see what i can get to...

65nm vs. 90nm still worries me.

Who will like to teach an olde phart like me how to OC Diablo?

Jose,
Someone has a very profound quote in their sig around these parts and me thinks its Ozzimark.

In overclocking he who tries the most things wins.

Basically keep temps low ( and with LV_DD's WC'ing) and keep clocks high.

im more than happy to help but i dont really konw how to describe starting from scratch.

My DX3600 maxxed at 8.3mil...Weedsqueezer had a 6600 at 3600-3700 and was showing 12 mil..scary!:eek:

Arg!!! I know what need to be done, it is the HOW ... Hoiw does one plays with the clocks?

I feel so obsolete.

Dave: Actually showing 12million? or a combined 12million?

sheesh, if i cant get each core to 12million it may just be worth it to dump my "side" project for some SoB Stomping.

Phew... cuz right now combined I'd be sitting at just over 14, approaching 15 with a restart.

You had my young heart beating pretty darn fast Dave.

Bullet.. nice CEMS there... ;) Also you have advantage of it been low n number and low k number. That helps also by up to 18-20%. ;)

Hey hey there buck-o :D

Start small Jose, go for a very realistic goal of 100Mhz above stock to start... this can be done generally without adjusting Voltages or Ram timings.

Basically just find your FSB in the BIOS and use the + or - keys to increase it...

I thought that LV_DD already had Diablo_Legion OCed as far as he felt it would be stable.

He went a tad conservative. So if he thinks I cannot go more I guess I am condemned to be a stable olde phart.
