Haha, pretty evenly-dispersed votes. I OC 500MHz because my stepping tends to max out at around 3GHz, and unstably so. So I bumped mine down to 2.9GHz for 100% stability.

I think I've decided to leave... maybe I'll come back sometime.

I usually overclock my CPU a bit just for fun. I'm not much of an overclocking enthusiast so I don't really care about it. Ownage on the other hand, he loves tweaking and getting every bit he can from his CPU.

Overclocking can have it's rewards, just make sure you know what your doing otherwise you can fry your mother board i.e cpu.

My mobo/processor seems to max out at 3.8ghz for some reson, idk why its not the cooling because when I bump my processor speed up to like 4ghz it stays running without shutting down due to overheating, but no video is displayed...maybe it could be my graphics card can't handle the high fsb's

hascet, lock your your PCI and PCI-Express bus speeds to 33 and 100 respectively. Depending on what motherboard you have, you might be able to go to 113mhz on the PCI-Express bus speed.

And by the way guys, for any of you overclocking video cards, bumping up the bus speed of the slot ie. PCI, AGP, PCI-Express will yield you a higher overclock

The farthest I've gone with my E6600 is 3.4, but that was on stock cooling

Yeah, since I haven't really done it before and I can't be bothered to learn how to I think it's better to leave it!

Besides, I don't need my PC to be faster than it is.

Can't get my FSB any higher than 220, the memory holds me back, and the pc is slower if i underclock my ram to get a higher cpu speed. Stable at 2420 tho, with ddr at 440 (not bad for value ram)

I've got my E6600 at 3.4 GHz with solid temps. (doesn't usually break 50*C under load) I need it to be rock solid though, so that's what I leave it at, but I've gotten it to 3.9 not-completely-stable.

My temps running at 56c and 34 they where about 52/54 for the cpu so I'm not concerned, i installed cpu cool into my task bar so i can keep an eye on the temp for a couple of days.

What's the max temperature of your CPU?? The E6600's is supposed to be 60*C.
