It'll live on in that box I think, probably end up passing this (E8600) to my son and the Q6600 to my daughter when I build an i7 box

Wow, looks like you you're in for some fun overclocking

I came so close to biting the bullet for a W/C system. I had it all configured, but I just couldn't do it. You should totally do it since your north bridge comes with a block.

nb block is a pain in the butt - I'm running a TU120E facing to the rear, this precludes any of the NB cooling solutions offered with the board, I had to scavenge a hdd cooler fan (low profile) to screw on there as there isn't enough clearance for the supplied fan (~20mm difference )

@cabbs - I see you on XS, I'm yet to make my first post there, too busy reading and tweaking

Stupid 5 image rule, lets see it auto merge these two posts, lmfao

4.0GHz with 4GB of Memory

this took a lot more fiddling about to achieve than I expected. Next step is 4.25GHz with 4GB then 4.50GHz with 4GB









Cheers.

Dude you're a beast. Props. I would love to get a new SB700 and push my 5400+ further, but I don't have the money. This is on air right? Also, is that EVEREST Benchmark tool free or did you pay for it?

edit: Quick question for you regarding my processor. Do you think I'd be better off raising the CPU Frequency than the Multiplier? I think I'm running 205x16.5 if I'm not mistaken.

Nice. I have my E3110 running at about the same speed but 445x9. I'm too lazy to drop the multi and see if I can push it higher.

Ummmmmm, Everest was free, if you know what I mean

I've never owned or overclocked an AMD cpu, I would suggest multiplier though, frequency would require additional voltage I guess.

I'll be in the same boat as you when I finally get an i7 cpu as it is very similar to AMD chips now the memory controller is on-die, damn it, just when I learn to play the game properly they go and change the playing field

lol
