My cousin and I are always in competition to have better computers than each other. Right now we're both running 4200s (his being AM2, mine being 939), I have better RAM timings and my raptor 150g hd tears his hd apart. A few months ago he bought a x1900xtx and not wanting to fall behind, I bought one too. Now that I'm taking a look at the 6600, he claimed that he has bought a 6700. What I would like to know is this. If I still buy a 6600 as opposed to his 6700, will I be able to overclock past him because of my better cooling (liquid) and superior knowledge. He tends to lie about his hardware and claims to have some ddr800 already, but even so, the ddr800 I ordered has better timings (4-4-4-12). Should he not have ddr800, I know he won't keep a 1:1 very long in an overclock. Will this render his OC useless after a certain point? What it all comes down to is benchmarks. I have a feeling that he will push his CPU too far too fast without watching stability and just keep a couple of CPUZ screenshots before he crashes. Therefore, I am using benchmarks to measure performance. Will I be able to out-do him?
