Agree with PiratesRule, there is no way to do what you are after, every CPU has a limit, yes we could say this will get you to 3.2 or 3.6g, but if its stable if a different ball game. The only way is for you to try, we are here to help with questions if needed. Try reading some posts and stickies about OC for your CPU, at least you will get an idea what is possible, but no 2 systems will clock the same, even if same parts used.

However, as we can not help you with exact numbers, we can tell you that's a very aggresive build. I'm interested to see how it comes together. And I myself I have been considering another Hard Drive to give Vista a test on.

Make sure everything there will be compatible, and don't forget peripheral devices: DVD/CD Drives, Gaming mouse (G5), Gaming Keyboard (G15).

It woould be pointless to have that very nice build and then not be able to install windows ;-p

1 more thing: I would go all the way with the cooling and get the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme or Tuniq Tower, with an excellent 120mm fan. I have a Tuniq tower on my 4300 and I'm running 3.375GHz very comfortably. If I had an Ultra-120, I could reach for 3.5 easily. You should be looking way beyond 3.0GHz. Don't go so overboard by getting everything high-end, but keeping your processor contained! Go all the way with your build!

Personal suggestion: kick back the extra set of ram for now, and grab an XtremeGamer sound card and some speakers. You'll lvoe yourself for it. 4GB Ram isnt all that useful at the moment.

And dont forget to order some ArticSilver5 thermal compound!

For the way i use my PC, 4GB RAM is kinda needed. I will test the AC7 Pro out first and then decide what sorta high end cooling it needs... Water or air.

hey man, let us know. This is similar to my build (antec 900, asus p5k deluxe, pentium D 930, lesser ram, lesser graphics). My processor isn't near as good as yours, but I'd still like to see what you get.

I will invest in a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme with a good 120mm fan after i have tested my AC7 Pro.

I am to keep a stable and cool (ish) 3Ghz.

Q6600
AC7 Pro
Antec 900
Asus P5N32 E SLI
