Over the past month, my son and I have been upgrading our home pc which is now ready OCing. The original system had a i7-920 (OCd 3.66) with stock cooler, 500mb Radeon graphics card, mech hard drives, and 6GB ram. All mentioned comps were upgraded to below. Initially, the target CPU was a $25 X5675 on Ebay as it had the most online info on OC settings etc but bought a X5680 for same price because well, more is better I guess. However, there appears to be less info online on OC settings for these X5680s. The system runs great so not looking for anything crazy but perhaps a 4.2Ghz OC as I think the D15 cooler is good enough or this speed.
I've referenced many threads here but again, very little specifics on the X5680. Any help would be appreciated.
