Hey guys i just put together this rig, details below, any other info I can provide.

I have Overclocked it to 3.16ghz (E6600 2.4ghz)

I have 2x1gb of Crucial ballistix 6400

I want to OC it to the max. I know you guys use specific settings to get the most out of their rigs.

That's a very nice rig, and a nice OC for stock cooling.. To OC it to the max, get water cooling. If water cooling isn't what you want to do, get this: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...oducts_id=3804

It's the best air cooler out there, and it will give you some sweet temps, and more headroom for voltage for your OC.

I honestly think the Tuniq would be better, but to each his own.

Anyway, have you OCed your video card at all? Also, look in our FAQ section for a Windows Optimizer FAQ (I think it's in multiple parts) and it should make your games run a bit faster if Windows isn't using as much of your system resources.

Also, are these scores in XP or Vista? Vista can decrease FPS in games by like 10% or more. Even that being said, 10k 3DMark06 is certainly nothing to sneeze at, there are very few rigs capable of 10k, and you should be proud you own one.

I just ran another test and scored a 10,277


I have another 2 gig of game coming in, same identical ones.

Better cooling is coming in also, as soon as its in stock.

I havent messed around with my evga 8800gtx yet. doing research now. if someone can point me in the right direction it would be great. also here is my result for the 3dmark06 if you can interested. maybe you can point out a few things.

Thanks
