    Been playing around for awhile trying to get the maximum oc I can with my Q6600. In coretemp shows the VID is 1.325V. The maximum oc I can get without pushing the volts past 1.6v (brave enough to push it that far I reckon) is 3.699GHZ at BIOS setting 1.5625V at multi x9 @ 411 FSB. Wanted to get to 3.8GHZ but no cigar. The graph indicates the minimum stable voltages for each incremental overclock.

    Not bad though! If it were me with that chip I'd call it good at around 3.4 @ 1.4v though. I'm hitting 3.6 w/1.42v on mine, it's gotta VID of 1.300v though..but the VID doesn't necessarily mean much in these newer Q6600's from what I've read.

    I really have no true reason for even running at 3.6, it doesn't do too much in gaming performance beyond stock...I'm sure it helps with folding, but aside from that! :D

    Still not bad results if you can keep the temps under control! I wouldn't even think of running over 1.5v on my quad, especially on air!

    Those results are on water, temps aren't a problem, especially being winter where I am at the moment. I use 3GHZ at 1.25v for every day use. 3.4 is a good number though.

    Looks like 1.45v is your optimum, Should let 3.5GHz be stable without sacraficing too much performance and generating a load of heat.
