Can the duo core 2.4 GHz be OC to 2.66? How high can it be OC?

More about : duo core ghz

That'd be an E6600?

It can easy do 2.66GHz (probably at stock Vcore), mines at 3.2GHz on air and I reckon I could do 3.4GHz with this set-up before looking to watercooling etc to go higher.

Yeah, i've got mine on an ASRock 775Dual VSTA, and had it up to 2700..stable...stock vCore(obviously...there's no vCore adjustment on this board)...Intel HS/F(10 minute lap+AS5)and dual Orthos gives ~48C, and TAT gives ~52C. :)

The C2D line is a well know OC. You have have NOOO problem hitting 2.6. SOme people hjave taken the 1.8 e4300 to 3.0 ghz.

I'd go 3.0 GHz if it was on stock Vcore.

I got my E4300 to 3.0Ghz AND lowered the default volatage.

Talk about a Win/Win.

And Yes, the E6600 can do 2.66 and Well beyond.

The limit is only your cooling and the amount of voltage you can provide the chip. A E6600, regardless of all but the worst batch which would most likely be sold as something lower, can reach 2.8 - 3.0GGHz with little to no change in the VCore or any other settings. And on the stock heatsink that came with it no less. 3.2 - 3.6GHz is within range although going above 3.4GHz requires both a good batch chip and if you want to preserve the working life of that Core 2 Duo, a better heatsink. Now 3.7 - 4.0 is still possible on air, but at those frequencies and the temps that come with it, you want to invest in water. Or a TEC. Or phase change.

Now if you're talking about a AMD chip, I assume its the 4600+ X2. That too can easily do 2.6GHz and with some good tweaking to the BIOS, 2.8GHz. Going beyond that usually requires better cooling though, but the 3.0GHz mark is still attainable.

thanks for all of your replies guys. I will definitely invest in liquid system for my next case.

I haven't heared of anyone that couldn't get there E6600 to at lest 3.0Hz on air. I can get to 3.2Mhz, before I have to worry about heat.
