    thanks psycho. i will try this out tonight since i'm at work right now. (im in melbourne/australia +10GMT)

    this is becoming less and less MY oc and more and more like YOUR oc. haha. by the time im finished, you're going to be able to tell people you oc'd a q6600 to 4.0GHz

    yea, the temps are mad. i had prime95 (blend) running for 20minutes (100% cpu utilisation) and temps never went over 45C @ ~22C ambient.

    I'm sure if you mailed me your Q6600 and your pumps, res's and blocks I'd have a damnd good go.

    It's better, I feel, to offer practical "this is what I did and this happened" examples to re-enforce the value of reference voltages. They're like voodoo. One minute the machine's f**ked, next minute you've changed one single setting a tiny amount and it's 100% stable.

    Learn to know what your CPU wants and you're 1/2 way there.

    Is the CPU lapped? Give IBT a go and see how the temps do. It's still ultra cool for a Q6600.

    no, the cpu is not lapped. i'd love to give it a go (and i might still), but given how much trouble i've had with my machine, cpu lapping is the last on my list. my components seem like they are dated, but they are actually brand/near new. the reason why i have the ud3p is because i needed a temporary replacement whilst my striker ii went in for a second rma - first time it came back they did nothing after a month. i've had to wait for powdercoaters to finish the case, parts to come in from the states (australia has nothing!), find time to machine my case and make brackets. by the time i get around to putting the gear in and playing with it, it already old!!

    the way im going at the moment, i probably won't even use the striker ii when it comes back. but then again i have another 9800gtx+ ready for sli. *sigh*

    i've got IBT somewhere.. will fire it up when i get things stable.

    now you've got me thinking about lapping again...

    ok, looks like i bit off more than i can chew. i got the thing running a little stable @ 3.6 (well, 4 hours prime95 stable, three threads up to 8 hours). been using the computer for a few days without any hiccups.

    attempted to go the 4.0GHz and massive fail... it would POST but BSOD when loading vista. so.. dialing it back to 3.82GHz and now checking on stability.

    here are the current settings (booting to vista):
