Re: nForce 680i C2D E7200 Overclock
i got stock HSF, and i was able to get it to 3.0Ghz, though i never actually tried to get any higher. I didnt have an 1:1 ratio though.
I didnt see any performance gains in crysis till i upped my graphics, which is kind of dissappointing, which means i will either have to get another 8800GT (Might be able to get one for $80-$90) or a new graphics card.
I think the E7200 can get high clocks, but since we have an nVidia and the cutdown chipset of the actual one, it might be harder to achieve higher clocks.
