okay then
so when im trying to play RC Tycoon 3 and it just randomly reboots
with no flaw in the game on in Vista
no error occuring
that means that its not stable is it?
btw my NB is at 1.4V and my VCore is at 1.35V
any advice is appreciated

to post this i dropped it back to 2.66 GHz
that way i know i can actually use my pc :|

So you're saying it's not stable in Prime 95? Did you get a blue screen?

OK, has this only been happening since your OC? It might not be a problem with stability at all.

Is 1.4V the lowest available NB voltage, or increased by one notch?

Nope, Q6600s are more difficult. They have a 9x max multi and the Q6700s were picked because they are able to run at 2.66GHz.

Damn you Nvidia motherboards, why do you have to make overclocking so hard!
Sorry, it's probably not the chipset's fault. I've heard a lot of talk about the recent batches of C2Qs being poor overclockers, this could be the reason why you're having such a hard time.

Open up CPU-Z whilst the system is idling with your current overclock, record the voltage. Now, start Prime95 with CPU-Z still running, record the voltage whilst the CPU is under full load. The drop in voltage is called Vdrop, and if it's substantial, you'll have to pump up the Vcore a little more, what are your temps like?

Could be a variety of things..

Temperature (especially if it he has trouble staying in a game)
Power supply?
Vcore drop

How about he tries the pencil mod we did?

I read 60 something in HW whilst P95 is running, games would be much lower than that. (OP, can you use Realtemp or Coretemp to mesure temps, they're more accurate)
Quote:

His PSU is 850W and a lack of power would result in reboots but not blue screens.

Vcore drop
This is what I'm most interested in.
