    Re: Intel Q6600 G0 stepping $179.99 at Frys.com! Update. Expires 3pm EST 4-18!

    These Intel's love to OC. My old E6300 ran at 2.8 gig 24/7 for well over a year, with no stability problems. And that was with all voltages stock. That is damn near a 50% overclock! In fact it is!

    jump into your bios go 9x333 unlink or desynch memory and set everthing else to default. try to get to windows. you might be surprised.

    seriously theres nothing to be scared of at that setting, even on factory cooling. ive been up to 3.28 on factory cooling with a 1.24 voltage.

    I just now got them to 3 Ghz, so I'll let 'em settle down a bit and report back

    58-62C in a 74F room. But that's a B3 that needs 1.4v to fold stable. Using a ThermalRight SI-128.

    Re: Intel Q6600 $199.99 at Frys.com.

    As long as it's stable I don't consider temps to be a big deal. Thermal shutdown would occur long before you could get it hot enough to physically damage the cpu. My quads run hot but it doesn't seem to bother anything.

    Re: Intel Q6600 $199.99 at Frys.com.

    i just installed a artic cooling freezer 7 instead of the stock intel heatsink fan.

    temps dropped from 50c idle to 34c. thats lower than what my dang tuniq tower was getting for some reason.
