You shouldn't be overclocking with the stock cooler at all. The maximum "T Case" of that Q6600 is 71°C, and you were getting awfully close to it @ 3GHz.

Be carefull if you oc wothout a proper cooler

I think 3.0ghz is far enough with a stock cooler

Get a better cooler. If you have a G0 stepping Q6600 there's no reason you can't throw an H5O level cooler and run 3.6 on a UD3 board and stay under 60C at full load.

If 3.0 is all you're looking for, just get a Hyper 212 which is cheap and plenty for that job.

Don't OC on the stock cooler.

well it seems to be stable at times.. But some times on boot it boots up and then switches itself off and starts again.. and the TEMPS are 66C without load.. on load i fear its gonna reach 80.
Plus i want to know that what the settings should i do on the RAM and on the Proc as them dont seem to match and the sys gets slower .
Ex:- when i put the settings to 2.4Ghz ie. 400 X 6. then the Ram goes to 1600 which is the default settings of RAM, but the system gets even more slower.
What should the settings be of that their Cycles SYNC together ????


Yes well i ordered a H80. should be with me by the end of the next week...
