I just traded it my Phenom 9600 for the Windsor X2 6000, man what a difference. I was having massive problems with BSOD's with the Phenom. I am very eager to join the group.
I have overclocked my system manually throught the BIOS and am running very stable at around 3.3 Mhz. My problem is my scores through 3DMark06. I am only scoring a 10031 overall. My cpu score is 2284, which I think is kind of low. I am overclocking with the following:
My cpu score wasn't much higher either. This chip doesn't score too terribly high in 3dmark06. 3.3Ghz isn't a bad OC for this chip, but you may be able to get a little more out of it. What temps are you running at with 1.45v?

atm I have the following:
Motherboard - abit kn9-s mobo
Processor - Athlon 6000+
Ram - 8GB Corsair Dominator
GFX - Dual 8800GTX GFX Cards
Processor Fan - Zalman CNPS9700
and i want to overclock the processor, everything is hooked up and ready to go, i made a slight change in the bios, and made the following changes:
FSV 0 215MHZ
Voltage - 1475V
so far it seems to be running stable at 43C while just simply using the computer
under strain it has reached 50-55C
any advice on wether i screwed up or am i going in the right diurection or what should i do?
First, fill out your specs here
. With the 1.475 vcore, what OC can you achieve? As long as you stay below mid 50's C you are alright as far as temps go. Also, what speed is your RAM running at?
