Damn its hot

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
... the weather, my rig, myself

Hey all. I'm new, so I figured I would introduce myself and give you a bit of detail on what I am working with.

Well, I'm 23 and am a software engineer over at EMC. I havn't done much overclocking in the past, which is mostly due to the insane heat in my previous dormroom and apartment, coupled with the fact that my hardware wasn't very OC friendly. So, to tell you the truth I am more of a OC noob then anything.

So far, I have OC'ed my CPU. It is a e6600 @ 3.3ghz at 1.45vcore. This is with a stock fan. Now, the cores idle at 40C and reach up to 65C under load occording to CoreTemp (stress CPU/RAM test with Orthos after 20min). I will probably get a better headsink/fan combination in the next week or two... cause those temps are rather high considering I still have the memory and video cards left to overclock. What I may end up doing is drop the CPU speed down to 3.2ghz and lower the vcore to see where it sits... if I am able to drop the voltage enough, I might just leave it at that... I have yet to see.

I will probably work on OCing my RAM next. Currently its set to 800mhz with 4-4-4-15-2T. After that I will probably bump up my two video cards and see how that ends up =).

Oh, and as of right now my 3dMark06 score is roughly 12400 (under Vista). I have a feeling I will be sitting at 15K+ after I am done =).
