OCCT failure

Hi, looking for a little help on my stability testing.
OCCT ver. 2 is failing me consistently, 8 seconds into the stress test, with error code 1.
I've done it about 20 times, with 2 main different settings through BIOS - running XMP profile 1, and then simulating all those settings manually - thats been most successful and I have more control over voltages etc.
I'm a little concerned about stability of voltage but I don't know whats acceptable..

Currently running the below rig at 3.6g, 1.32v (fluctuates to 1.297, Dimms at 1.8 (shows everest of 1.87)

I'm keen to get it stable to would appreciate any help either on voltages or anything else.. Cheers!

I use Prime95, but either way no matter what you use if it fails your overclock is not stable. Try loosening up the Ram timings.

I'd loosen them if the RAM wasn't specc'd to run at the exact speed I have them, although it should be able to handle CR1 and I've got it at 2...

Apparently the error code is a CPU failure..
So I've the CPU voltage in BIOS from 1.32 to 1.35 (CPU PLL around 1.76 automatically), but the system doesn't register it!

So now I need to know how to solve that, if I can't increase voltage I'm kind of buggered.

lol you need more than 1.35v to get an oc like 3.6ghz stable ;) on a 65nm quad but on 45nm dual cores its another story.

Fair enough - thanks for the feedback, I was pretty sure of that given all the averages and the Atomic review of the QX6850 (they said 1.35 volts for 3.6ghz, 1.45 volts for 4ghz, 1.6volts for 4.1ghz).

I guess my worry now is why either on auto or manual voltage setting, I can't get the voltage I call up from BIOS, greater than 1.32 volts.
I'm calling up 1,35-1.36, and only getting from Everest, OCCT or CPU-Z, 1.32 or less... any idea?

Did your mobo come with any monitoring software?

I know my Gigabytes mobo software is the only way I can view an accurate vCore reading, as OCCT & CPU-Z always show a decreased vCore figure than my BIOS..

Only for temperature - PC probe.. - there is other software but it's crappy automated overclocking which - it shows voltage but it's more problematice than the others..

my Asus P5Q has a jumper to change if you want to change the voltages from 'auto' - did you read your manual?

Start by checking that the ram is stable with some memtest checking, that way you can try and eliminate that as the cause of the stability issues.
