Q6600 on AIR thread: POST RESULTS HERE

Id like to start a post to see what some overclocking users are getting out of their Q6600 on air. Please follow the following format and include your validation from the cpu-z database.


Core : Kentsfield (65 nm) / Stepping : G0
Freq : 3000.12 MHz (333.35 * 9)
Motherboard: DFI Lanparty DK P35-T2RS
Case: Antec 1200
Cooler: Zalman 9700
Maxtemp: prime95 5hours 45C

Please use CPU-Z 1.46 http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php Run cpu-z. Then click VALIDATION on the ABOUT tab.
Run Prime95 and report your max temps and hours ran.
Please use RealTemp http://http://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp/ Run realtemp and report your highest cores max.

  1. This should be a good/interesting thread, BUT please include core voltage you used as this is probably the second most important piece of information after clock speed. Also include any other voltages raised.
  2. well, now thats interesting. I was under the impression the voltage would be indicated on the validation. I was wrong. thanks for the update. I will add this.
  3. This interests me, I hope Santa will bring me a 6600 this Christmas lol

  6. LB_Specter,

    Ambient temperature can be a huge variable, so you should include it in your list.
