Re: Best Core 2 Series Desktops-Results and Specs

Keep in mind that ambient temperatures are going to have a big effect on cpu temps as well as case ventilation. Another thing worth considering is if the heatsink is seated correctly. A nice little...

Re: Best Core 2 Series Desktops-Results and Specs

Most of those guys over there at XS know what they're talking about, so yeah it's a good place to start.

Re: Best Core 2 Series Desktops-Results and Specs

All good by the look of those screen shots. How low did you get the Vcore before it became unstable at 3.2Ghz?

There's still the P5E series boards and I can't see any reasonable reason why a P45 wont work.

Re: Best Core 2 Series Desktops-Results and Specs

When OC'ing always try to go for the lowest Vcore possible that still allows for 100% system stability. IMO 1.39V is too much for a 3.2GHz OC, so all I'm really trying to say is that you should try...

Re: Best Core 2 Series Desktops-Results and Specs

A little on the high side depending of course on ambient temps and what heatsink fan combination you're using. That looks a good CPU though with a fairly low VID.

I'm thinking you should be able...

Re: Best Core 2 Series Desktops-Results and Specs

1.39V is quite some volts for 3.2GHz. Do your idle and load temps again with coretemp and let us knnow how you go.... you should be able to do 3.2GHz at around the stock (allowable intel spec) 1.35V...

Re: Best Core 2 Series Desktops-Results and Specs

1. I'd go for either P5K (P35)or P5E (X38/X48) series ASUS board. Gor for 4Gb DDR2-1066, it will allow for a little more performance and DDR2 is seriously cheap anyhow. Definetely go for the Quad if...

Re: Best Core 2 Series Desktops-Results and Specs

Are your HDD's/DVD drives from the Dell SATA or PATA? Keep in mind modern boards generally only have one IDE interface which allows for only 2 devices. Ideally you'd like them to be SATA.

Re: Best Core 2 Series Desktops-Results and Specs

Run a test with HDTach, these mobos have been notorious for SATAII (300) issues. That score is a little on the low side imo....

You wont have a problem with the QX6850, however a Q6600 will clock to 3 GHz with ease which essentially makes it a QX6850.

Re: Best Core 2 Series Desktops-Results and Specs

Yes I manually set voltages to the NB and South Bridge. I wouldn't go for more than 1.55 on the NB and no more than 1.5 on the SB.

That's some pretty impressive stuff there Mykhal, especially without touching any voltages.

Is that memory score for read, write or copy?
