Hello guys, for my new pc which is coming soon i purchased 4gb of ddr3 1333mhz ram, and im using my processor now, the q6600. The cooler i have planned to attach to it is the Arctic Freezer Cooler Pro 7, with thermal paste ofc. Im just wondering, what sort of speeds do you think i'll be able to OC to?

If you are lucky:
3.6 (maybe even 3.8)

More likely
3.4

And if you just pulled a bad cpu that's not overclock friendly
3.2

$.02

The ACF7P is by today's standards an average cooler. My G0 Q6600 reached core temps of mid 60's at 3.3 GHz. With a TRUE, I reached 3.6 GHz at 1.42 volts. Loaded core temps were 61 - 65 C.

So I am guessing 3.3 - 3.4 GHz. and no higher unless you get really lucky and have a chip with a really low VID.
