This will be my very first post in this forum, so I would like to say hi to everyone within the community. Now I have been searching through multiple threads, reading reviews, and pretty much trying to get a good understanding of how over clocking works. This would be my third self build in about 5 years, and I never really thought about trying to overclock before. But since I have had this computer for about a week now, I have noticed that many people have achieved a 3.0ghz on their Q6600 processor running stable 24/7 off of fan cooling. I was wondering if anyone could give me some feedback on the type of cooling I should use to achieve this or any other modification suggestions on my current build. Specifications on the bottom .
Thanks for the warm welcome, I have heard good things about freezer pro 7. Another question regarding entering the bios to achieve 1 to 1 ratios. Should I rely on the overclocking steps asus provides in the manual, or should I just jump straight into that how to overclock thread thats still active. Im looking for maximum speed at minimum voltage, I know it might be a little much to ask.
