Yes that's what I have been finding out. I had a buddy put this computer together for me, because I had no idea what to do. Now that I got it, I have been doing a lot of research. Since then I have put a XFX GeForce 8600 XXX video card in it, two more gigs or RAM & then sold my 2GHz processor for a E6300 Dual Core. After reading about that processor I have learned it's a very good overclocker, but everything else needs to be up to speed to do so.
I do have the stock fan/cooling system so I'm not trying to go to 3Ghz but wanted at least 2GHz with that, is that asking too much of the stock cooling system?
