depending on your revision (D1 stepping is good, the A is the best really), you should be able to OC up to 3.4 on air, but with your water, you should be able to get to 3.8...but it depends on your revision and the quality of your mobo.

I got a 1ghz+ OC on air witha big typhoon, but you've got the WC advantage, so I'd give you the upper hand. Make sure to record your top stable OC and put it in with the Official Intel OC competition (main intel page).

You can find me at #1 for the moment, but once you OC your 2.6 you'll waaay surpass me

Should get quite far.

I just started a new thread asking for assistance and then saw the 2.6 thread. Can you see my screen shots and based on the system I have, tell me if I can overclock this system, and if so, how to do it? I have a thermaltake fan and heat sink which has adjustable fan speed (really noisy though at high speed). Thanks for any help.

Get rid of that Intel motherboard and you will be able to get that northwood up there. Your ram might hold you back as well.

If he keeps his 5:4 divider, then it wont too much...
I got the same processor and some value ram (PC3200), so I've set a 5:4 divider, and I've got it to 3.3GHz.

You should be able to get it to atleast 3.0GHz

asus p4p800-e board is great for northwoods
and upgrade the ram to ddr400 dual channel

For the best price you will get the same overclocking ability with the ASUS P4P800 SE. However, any iteration (except the value editions) of P4P800 will serve you very well. Most 2.6's make it to 3.2+GHz which when one takes into account the raise in FSB the 2.6 @ 3.2 will take out the 3.4 non-overclocked.
