Just thourght I could post here and get some feedback on how i am doing so far with my first overclock. I am using an E6600 with an OCZ Vanquisher heatsink. I have 4 intake 80mm fans and 1 outtake 120mm fan. 700watt psu, 3gb ram, asus p5b, 8800gts.
I haven't checked stability yet due to time constraints however I will be running for at least 3 hours tomorrow.
First of all i changed the frequency to 333 to get 3ghz but it took that with ease with temps of low to mid 50's so i tried for 3.2, i put the frequency up to 355 and increased the voltage to 1.35 however i have no idea why the screens show 1.272 (if someone could explain that?).
It booted fine, has been running fine for 2 hours whilst playing counterstrike: source.
As I said I'm running a stability test tomorrow and for Christmas I'm getting new Crucial Balistix Tracer 800mhz RAM and a new case.
Just wanted to make sure I'm doing this right. Screenshot below.
And yes, im running Vista 64 and its absolutely brilliant!
