Default What do you think?

What do you think I can get my Q6600 that I'm getting for Christmas up to on totally stock cooling? You think like 2.8? 3.0?

I'd say about 2.8 assuming the rest of your hardware is okay. 3 GHz if you get a really good chip.

ok, I heard the ASUS Maximus Formula is a good overclocker. I just don't want to run into heat issues.
