G0 Q6600 overclocking
So, my sig lies, I haven't had this overclocked since I instlaled windows 7 and now that it seems stable (as stable as a non release version of windows can be) I'm going to start overclocking again... but this time foregoing the conservative 333 fsb and hoping for 400 which would be about 3.6ghz
Thing is though... is this realistic for the C2Q series? I see it alot on the dual cores (and up to 4ghz) but i don't see many people pushing the quad to those speeds.
And before you have to ask, yes it has pretty good cooling. I'm still using a Zalman 7700cu (remember those)... the same one that graced my Opteron 165 (1.8ghz @ 2.6ghz) for more than 3 years.
Anyway, I'm excited to try this out again.... what's the key stuff you guys use for testing stability? is prime95 + ati tool the defacto stability testers still?
and one more thing... what's a "high" voltage for these? 1.325 is stock and I've seen people push theirs up to 1.4 but it just seems quite high to me....
