I need to good quick app to complete stress out my new cpu. I used prime95 which is passed. But that did not seem full use all cores I am tiring to fine tune the voltage. I set cpu to speed of 6600e(my old cpu) which was 355 X 9 which on that box had ran it with voltage overage .125. When I first got the 6600q set to 355 x9 at .050 it would boot. So I set the volatge to .125. I have since backed it down to .1. Have done some gaming benchmarking and it is stable ut 3 frame rates went from 102 to 250. LIke said I would like app that complete stress all four cores out. That something like prime 95.

Are you sure you have the latest version of Prime95? Prime95 maxes out all of my cores just fine.

I original in this rig I ran dual core 6600e. Newegg had the 6600q on sale this Monday so bought. Knowing that my friend has the same cpu and overclocked just while as my dual core. So my final setting look like they well be 355 x 9. With .112 volt increase. Though to get more I need better cpu cooler. Oh and looks like core two is the weakest core

The OP obviously means Q6600 and E6600. OP, on some forums it's required to label CPU parts correctly or else we'd get confused.

Oh dear.

Temps usually the problem. My e2180 would fail the second it hit 75C if my voltage was > 1.5vcore.

Those temperatures are a bit too high for the Q6600, my old QX6850 which is simply an unlocked Q6600 G0 stepping (Or vice versa), could run 3.60Ghz at 1.43V without issues, but it's a very hot running CPU, so uncomfortably for my tastes that I sold it on ebay and got the Q9650 for cheap.
