Hello all. I'm faced with a dilemma. I have a great clocking q6600 but my temps get out of hand when shooting for 3.6GHz and I think it's due to how high I have to set my voltage in bios just for a reasonable load voltage. Running stable at 3.2GHz, I'm losing about .1v from bios to CPU-Z load. 1.281 in Bios gives me 1.232 idle, 1.184 load (CPU-Z). Which route would be the better route to take, better cooling or a better board? I'm thinking better board but I wanted to see what other's would do. If I only lost .02v or so, I think I could run 3.4GHz at this same bios setting on another board.
