Default Re: New system seems a little slow to me? Thoughts?

you could prolly get 3.0ghz out of that e6600.. most of them do that on stock volts these days.. even up to 3.3ghz and beyond on stock vcore.. ymmv. if you keep pushing it, just go 100mhz at a time.. testing for stability.. anyways, some cpu power does help the SM3.0 and SM2.0 scores with these 8800GTX cards.. all those stream processors like to have some horse power behind them on the back end.

x58 / core i7 920 / xfx 5870 / 3x auria 24 eyefinity
680i / e6850 / zotac 9500gt / sammy 26
