Well, got this thing finished a couple of days back, but been so busy I haven't had the chance to benchmark it, so here goes. This is the first overclock, not a hitch as of yet. Vcore was automatically adjusted. Using a Zalman CNPS9500 cooler.

Specs:

Gigabyte GA-965P-DQ6 F5 BIOS
G.Skill 2-8000PHU2-1GBHZ 4-4-4-5 timings (they sent me a 1gig kit instead of informing me the 2gig was out of stock.. :thumbdwn: replacement incoming)
Core 2 6600
eVGA 7905GX2
Raptor X 150GB
X-FI Platinum


Photos/3dmark/Sandra coming soon.

Yep, going to give it a kick in the ass tommorow. Gonna let the thermal grease settle a little and allow some burn in.

Very NICE! You have a 7950 GX2 right? The Spec's at the top post say EVGA 7905 GX2, just thought I would let you know. Anyways what are you using for CPU Cooling and can you take and post some pics.:D

BTW Jakup, what the story with Your ASUS P5N32-SLI Deluxe SE and Your Conroe E6700, GSkill PC2-8500, and your twin EVGA 7950 GX2's? Have you got the replacement mobo yet? Did you get it running with the GSkill's?

Yep, sorry made a typo with the 7950 :)

Next push was 3300Mhz, it's been running stable all day and the temps have definately improved, even beyond that of the previous overclock. Zalman STG1 really is excellent stuff.

This thing is just BLAZING through anything I throw at it. Oblivion is finally smooth as butter with all the faders set to max.

btw, I have no idea why both apps are displaying my vcore differently. I have it set to 1.41v.

So are you just going to hold off completely until the C55 release?

Stupid question, but what exactley is the c55? (Obviously, it's good if jakup is waiting for it)

It's the new chip the DFI board will use instead of the C19 which allows for only crappy FSB overclocks. Hopefully the board will be out soon so that jAkUp doesn't pass out.:D

I'm curious to see how much this CPU can do with Super PI Mod 1.5XS (http://www.xtremesystems.com/pi/).
