Recently, one of my uncles passed away at a young age of 38, and was a computer enthusiast. Knowing I was fond of computers, he left his old computer stuff to me, most of it was pretty standard, some older graphics cards etc.

There however was a real gem in his stuff, an unopened Core 2 Extreme QX6850. It is compatible with my current motherboard, the P5N32-E Sli plus.

How well do these CPUs overclock under Air? I wasn't sure how well it would overclock, being several years old now.

yeah, i used to have one, it ran hot at 4.0 in air. i kept mine at 3.6Ghz 24-7.

if you want 4.0 get water cooling.
