Brag: Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Q6600 Overclock (Stock Cooler)

It seems that I am really lagging behind posting some items on my Blog. Anyway, I just want to share the 50% overclock of the quad core Kenstfield under the Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Q6600 branding. At this speed, all I can say is that it's awesome and the CPU fan is silent even at full load.

Don't expect any benchmark, I have posted several benchmarks on the Intel® Core™ 2 QX Extreme Edition series as well as on the Intel® Xeon® X32xx series. What I just wanted to share here is how easy it is to overclock the quad core on the current i965P platform. If you are looking for a brand spanking new system, I suggest you go and get a quad-core based system. You may click on the CPU-Z for the validation...

what components are you using to overclock that much? ... on a stock hsf?

mobo, psu, ram?

my q6600 gets plenty hot even at stock speed.

Hi, you can see those info at the validation link (mobo and ram). The PSU is a server grade PSU, but any good brand PSU should be ok.

hi, how many volts did u run it at?

Hi Kelin, I'm sorry, I think I forgot. But since I ran it off on the stock cooler, the highest I'll push vCore would be 1.4v-1.45v.

My experience tells me that 1.5v is just too hot for stock cooler, with a quadie!
