Re: G0 Q6600 overclocking
^ Agreed. I ran my Q6600 at stock for over a year before I upgraded my HSF and overclocked to 3ghz. I'd have to be pushed hard to say that I could tell the difference in practice.
I personally feel that the clockspeed race is pretty much over; I won't even think about upgrading my current system unless I'm adding cores.
It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool.
