Thanks for your help on my last message my cores now say 2.4ghz, but I still have one problem under intel's desktop utilities software it reads my processor is only getting 1.2v for the cpu? Is this right? Is there anyway of changing it? I looked in bios didnt see an option to up the core voltage. Again
any help is appreciated. thanks.

SPECS:
intel motherboard D975XBX
E6600 @ 2.4ghz
Zalman zns9500 fan
Antec NEO he 550watts
ATI X1950XTX
Audigy 2ZS
(2) raptor 74gig in RAID 0

If you're in the US your CPU voltage should be about 120V. Also make sure your system FSB clock is 60hz. Europeans use 240v cpu voltage but an FSB of 50hz thats why they can overclock better than americans.

If your computer isn't showing the right settings you should bypass your power supply and wire your cpu directly into the the wall socket. Just run some wires from the plug straight into those little pins on your CPU. Any two will do, the CPU is smart enough to get it right for itself.

not as funny as you thought it would be...

Anyway, I think that 1.2V is the correct voltage for Conroes.
