q6600 higher OC

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am installing water cooling in my system next week. Specs are: (all from Cyber Druid)
Thermochill PA120.3 (used in Cyber Druid's "Monolith")
MCP Vario 655
Fuzion CPU block
3-bay waterfall resevoir

should i be able to get a higher stable OC since it will be on water? What can i expect.

3.8 or so since you need such a high vcore for 3.6. maybe less

ur close to maxing out that vcore on ur cpu. an OC to 3.8 would be it's max but i dunno if u want to run it at 24/7 like that. i dropped mines to 3.4 for summer and i'm w/c as well. just play around with it but don't push it if u can't get a stable prime test or orthos test for more than 10hrs.

oh and what's ur n/b vcore @ ?
