That's right! This thing was up back when there were only a few of us on Kentsfield. You stay on your -2 core side of town!

BTW, who bought into the Q6600 G0 hype? I keep hearing mixed reports of the OC capability of this chip.

I need to hit up my contact for some Wolfdale or Yorkfield love. I know he's already got a few Wolfdales but had some problems getting them to run with current motherboards.

I didn't buy into the G0 hype, but I got one in the end. Seems I ordered just as they were coming into the country. Over here the price of a Q6600 and an E6600 is so close you might as well go Quad...

I have a Q6600 and it is the B3 stepping but I have got good results from it ,I have it at 3.3gigs at stock voltage 1.26v ,and I thought my Zalman 9500 was good ,it don't even compare with my Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme.with core temp I get 31c 35c 31c 35c .I don't see how them tempertures are right with a GO Q6600 when your ambient temperture is higher then your CPU tempertures with a Fan heatsink,I know the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme is good but I don't see it keeping the CPU 10c or more cooler then the ambient of your case.

slaWter,

I just realized I never did post how I modded the Freezone. Link is embedded for anyone interested.

I will have to do some more testing now that I have the E0 Q6600.

My Quad cost me less than my dual core did. I'll have some real oveclocking results once I ditch this i975x board. Currently stuck @ 390 x 9 with a Q6600 G-0. I should have a P35 mobo late in the week to play with. I'll update then.

Working on this with my G-0:

It's a lot to ask on air. If I want to hold it, I will need to move to water cooling.

Considering doing the following for the CPU and may add in something for the GPU later-

D-Tek FuZion - Water Block
Thermochill PA 120.3 - Radiator
Swiftech MCP655 - Pump
3x Sharkoon Silent Eagle fans
1/2" ID Tygon Tubing
Swiftech MCB-120 "RADBOX"
Danger Den Delrin Fillport
1/2" T Fitting
Swiftech 2oz HydrX Liquid Coolant + 1L Distilled Water
10x 1/2" Worm Drive Clamps

Looks good aside from the radiator. Are you planning to cool more than your quad in the future? The TC 120.3 is a great radiator but extreme overkill for just cooling a quad. But it's a good way to future-proof if you think you might want to put the GPU(s) on water one day. You're doing the right thing by going with the worm-drives, because they're the safest clamps to use for 1/2" tubing. Get those on there tight, and you'll never have to worry about leaks.

I realize that you know your stuff, but if I can help then just holla. This stuff is 2nd nature to me now, and I have plenty of pics and performance feedback from different blocks & loop designs that I've experimented with.

XtremeSystems' liquid cooling section is a beacon of knowledge, but I'm sure you've probably seen it by now.

That was the idea. I may work in the GPU and NB down the line.

EDIT: Peep this Xion,

I lowered the NB voltage and raised the vcore to 1.65v

I have really got to go water.

This should warm the hearts of Quad core overclockers:

Once I move to quality water cooling I should be able to hold that 4.0GHz I linked.
