    Swapped out my not so good E6700 L629B079 cpu and put in my E6600 B1 ES cpu (did 4150mhz at 1.66v max for 32M on Asus P5W DH on Swiftech G4 Storm/Thermochill 120.3/MCP650 water).

    System
    • E6600 B1 ES (QPGE) VID = 1.275v
    • Kayl Black FrozenSS 1/4HP
    • Asus Commando 1001 bios
    • 128MB Gainward FX5200 PCI
    • 2x1GB Crucial Ballistix Tracer PC2-8500 naked modules cooled by 3x 60x25mm Sunon 23.5cfm Maglev fans
    • 160GB Seagate 7200.7 SATA
    • Pioneer DVR-08 Burner
    • Sony FDD
    • 620W Corsair HX620 Modular PSU
    • WinXP Pro SP2

    At stock 9x266FSB 1.268v:

    Room temp = 23.5C
    Bios = -44.5C
    Evap temp idle = -44.5C

    Systool Dual 32M Pi tests
    • @9x456FSB = 4104Mhz at 1.5v bios (1.48v)
    • @9x467FSB = 4202Mhz at 1.55v bios (1.536v)
    • @9x478FSB = 4302Mhz at 1.60v bios (1.584v)
    • @9x480FSB = 4320Mhz at 1.65v bios (1.640v) - PC Probe2 = -13C load in windows / Evap load temp = -34.9C
    • @9x485FSB = 4367Mhz at 1.65v bios (1.640v)
    • @9x489FSB = 4401Mhz at 1.675v bios (1.664v) - PC Probe2 = -9C load in windows / Evap load temp = -33.4C

    Systool Single 32M Pi tests
    • @9x493FSB = 4440Mhz at 1.675v bios (1.664v)
    • @9x496FSB = 4468Mhz at 1.675v bios (1.664v)
    • @9x500FSB = 4500Mhz at 1.675v bios (1.664v)
    • @9x504FSB = 4536Mhz at 1.675v bios (1.664v) - PC Probe2 = -13C load in windows / Evap load temp = -35.4C - reboot at 73% mark

    Definitely B1 stepping is slower in Super Pi than B2 but not bad clocks @4490Mhz at 1.664v. Low memory clocks didn't help heh

    Evap load = -34.6C @9x499FSB at 1.664v

    Wprime 32M & 1024M
    Wprime 1024M @9x490FSB at 1.664v = Evap load temp = -31.8C

    Seems to be enough for 1M and cpuz validation @4500Mhz - 9x500FSB at 1.664v :)

    E6600 QPGE B1 ES
    Max FSB Frequency​

    Now to find out the my E6600 QPGE B1 ES cpu's max FSB frequency.

    At 7x cpu multiplier and 5-5-5-9 timings, I managed maximum of 7x540FSB boot from bios into windows:

    I used 540mhz 5-5-5-9 3-30-6-10-10-10 timings at 2.25v vdimm with vMCH at 1.65v and vFSB at 1.40v. Didn't bother with Super Pi 32M instead just ran Systool dual 32M Pi test and took screenie of Everest bandwidth and then jumped straight to 8x cpu multiplier :D

    [​IMG]

    At 8x cpu multiplier and 4-4-4-9 timings, I managed maximum of 8x536FSB boot from bios into windows:

    For 8x536FSB, I used 536mhz 4-4-4-9 5-30-5-10-10-10 timings at 2.40v vdimm with vMCH at 1.75v and vFSB at 1.40v.

    Still slow times compared due to being B1 stepping compared with my E6700 B2 @8x532FSB 1:1 4-4-4-5

    Finally, managed to get my E6600 QPGE B1 ES cpu to hit 4500Mhz with Super Pi 32M and 4536Mhz for 1M at 11.156s. Managed 4563Mhz for 1M at 11.094s but it rebooted when I was taking the screenshot :(

    E6600 B1 ES

    @4500Mhz - 9x500FSB 1:1 at 1.75v bios (1.696v)

    Swap out my 128MB Gainward FX5200 PCI for 640MB Gainward 8800GTS stock hsf video card and let's see how cpu scaling effects 3Dmark06 scores :)

    System
    • E6600 B1 ES (QPGE) VID = 1.275v
    • Kayl Black FrozenSS 1/4HP
    • Asus Commando 1001 bios
    • 640MB Gainward 8800GTS stock hsf with 158.22 WHQL drivers
    • 2x1GB OCZ PC2-8000 Titanium Alpha VX2 cooled by 3x 60x25mm Sunon 23.5cfm Maglev fans
    • 160GB Seagate 7200.7 SATA
    • Pioneer DVR-08 Burner
    • Sony FDD
    • 620W Corsair HX620 Modular PSU
    • WinXP Pro SP2

    640MB Gainward 8800GTS stock hsf @648/2000

    [​IMG]

    @3600Mhz
    [​IMG]

    @4006Mhz
    [​IMG]

    @4416Mhz
    Power-mate wattage metere read a peak of 383.7 watts pulled from mains power during 3dmark06 run

    Room temp = 23.8C
    Evap idle temp = -38.2C
    Evap load temp = -32.0C

    [​IMG]

    Easily broke 12k with dual core cpu :)

    My highest PCmark05 score to do by nearly 800pts @14877

    [​IMG]

    Look at this entry 15th global rank and 1st E6600 rank http://www.hwbot.org/result.do?resultId=623569 :)

    Also my highest 3Dmark benchmarks with single 640MB 8800GTS stock hsf score to date :D

    Nice work with the E6600. 4500mhz is no easy goal to set.

    Do you think your retail X6800 B2 will be able to reach the 4500mhz goal?

    thanks... X6800 B2 will go past that easy i suspect maybe 4.55-4.75ghz - well i hope :D

    Finally, got around to setting up the dedicated GPU water cooling loop for this card consisting of the following:

    EK Acetal Full Cover GPU block -> Radiical Triple fan single pass Radiator -> Brass T-line -> Swiftech MCP655 powered by Kayl custom 100W relay switched psu -> back to EK Acetal Full Cover GPU block

    stock speeds are @648/1512/2052 (bios flashed)

    Some eVGA 8800GTX runs @648/1512/2052

    Looks like the eVGA 8800GTX is bottlenecked at it's clock speeds of 648/1512/2052. Can't get GPU core higher probably GPU voltage limited at stock GPU volts.

    Well decided to flash Commando to 1404 bios so as to support newer cpus that are out now :D

    Give 1404 run at 9x500FSB 1:1 to see how it goes.. shame it ain't a E6600 B2 stepping cpu as the below time would be at least 20 seconds faster than this E6600 B1 ES heh.

    [​IMG]

    Now which cpu should get the privilege of being frozen ? shall it be Q6600 B3, E6750 G0 ES, Xeon X3230 G0 or the E6600 B2 L709A958 ? :D

    +1 vote for the X3230 G0 to get frostbite next :D

    E6750 G0 :D

    Bigger numbers, which will mean faster PI times :)
