Finally Got Me A Quad!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Just had to gloat even though a Q6600 isn't anything special these day's but hey beats the E4400 I had. Haven't started overclocking it yet but that will come shortly. Most likely I'll just take it to 3.0 and be happy with it there. Runs a-lot cooler than my old allendale did thats the first thing I've noticed. Well anyways, guess I'll post up my OCin results later.

Gratz You should start folding on it...you'll get some great points!

3Ghz is easy to achieve...you should be able to hit 3.4.

~Gooda~

Welcome.

3.0GHz will be as simple as raising your FSB to 334MHz. Take it to 3.2GHz, at least you'll have to mess with your voltage a little that way.

Not sure if my board will let me get past 3 unfortunately its not the greatest OCin board though it did let me take my E4400 to 3.0 no problem so I suppose I can try a bit higher, the other thing that worrys me is only havin a Zalman 7000 on it for cooling.

Its running at 3Ghz no problems at the moment so I suppose I'll play around some more
