Default Re: overclocking a Q6600

My limiting factor now is my cooling. I have the OCZ Vendetta which is a great cooler at $27 but it's not exactly the 9700 or ULTRA 120 Extreme. I'm hitting 65c in Prime95 so I'm not willing to go any higher until I get round to some lapping.

I'll do it now. Liquid cooling is only worth it for get a high end kit. Otherwise it is often outperformed by the best air coolers which cost a lot less.
