Default Re: Ocing a q6600

yeah and also the comparison charts for stock heatsinks is insane. I never thought that the air heatsinks from other companies can improve that much. Like stock heatsink on Q6600 not overclocked yet idles at 41 C and when you put on the Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme Aluminum Heatsink it idles at 26 C. It is even better than water coolers that cost less than $300

[Case = Corsair 400R][CPU = Core i5 3.4Ghz to 4.6Ghz /w Noctua NH-U12P SE2 CPU Cooler][Mobo = Asus P8Z77-V LK][RAM = 16GB DDR3 Patriot Viper 3 1600Mhz RAM][Video Card = PNY GTX 670][SSD = 240GB Force GT][Samsung S27B350 27inch monitor][Running Windows 7 64Bit]

I don't see why not, as long as Vcore isn't insanely high. But if they were, temps wouldn't be good either.
