New OC'er

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Waiting on all my things to come in from Newegg. Looking to OC upon first post. Should start my first build on Friday.

Specs:

Intel Q6600 Core2Quad 2.4 gHz
2x2 4GB OCZ Platinum DDR2 SDRAM
ASUS P5N-D Mobo
XFX 9800 GTX+
WD HD Velociraptor 10000RPM 150GB
AC7 CPU Cooling
PC Power & Cooling 750W PSU

Went with the NZXT Guardian 921 case, good looking but cooling capacity is questionable.

Looking to OC up to 3.0 or 3.2 gHz in a couple of days. Will let you know how it turns out.

Be careful though, the most recent batch of Q6600's have been horrible, hitting a wall at 3.2-3.4, or have to use a heavy load of voltage to get there = /

I guess they finally realized that the dual-cores would not sell with 3.6 ghz quad's for cheap.

It's too late now I'm committed. But I can't really think of applications where I need that much anyway. I'm not one of those crazy 4.0 guys.
