Q6600 - To upgrade or not to upgrade, that is the question... - Page 5

post #41 of 67
That's a 65nm chip, you can set a very high voltage and there won't be any problems. Even 1.6V are not a problem for 24/7, but they are pretty impossible, unless you have a high-end watercooling, because this CPU on 1.6V is VERY hot!

Awesome! I'll definitely push it to the limit and monitor that temp. As you said 65nm are bigger so less leak and with a powerful cooler = higher speed.

H70 should hold the pressure well. Once it seems consistent I'll run Prime95 64bit

Question: how do you guys add your computer system signature with the grey letters? I just cant find it in my edit tool lol.

You'll be happy that you hung out for a bit longer mate to see the benchmarks of bulldozer. I am in the same boat running an E8400 @ 4ghz with a GTX 570. Even if the benchmarks don't favour bulldozer (i don't that will be the case) at least it might lead to a price drop. The SSD is a good upgrade mate.

Fair enough dude, but if that happens I don't think it would be huge savings to justify the wait.

Also, AMD GPUs aren't really what I am looking for. I am a loyal Nvidia customer, all my experiences with their boards have been fantastic.

nVidia has a much nicer driver control panel VS AMD/ATI.

And - HOWTO: SLI on a non-SLI Motherboard (GTX5xx compatible 1.0 final released!)

Haha... that's something I didn't think about searching... Awesome news for me Turrican9. I just wonder if I get another GTX570 down the track, will my processor handle it? Let say, OC @ 3.4Ghz?

A Q6600@3.4 or even 4GHz will bottleneck a GTX 570 SLI setup. However, this will vary from game to game.
