Wasent having a go dude.
It's all good. I'm just slightly bitter about my poor overclocking q6600. I really thought 3.5ghz / 3.6ghz was possible... it isn't with mine.

I've seen quite a few 920's go to 4ghz. I was probably just jumping to conclusions, I'd imagine your 920 has some room to grow still.

I will be upgrading sometime....at the very least it will be a year before anything happens though so I'm trying to suck every little bit out of this rig. I'm pretty dissapointed that lapping so far just dropped my temps. I've haven't been able to suck any more out of it in terms of overclock
