  1. I understand i may not of been very clear with my new specs, they will be the following...
    Gigabyte GA-EP43T-UD3L
    Intel Q6600 @ 2.4ghz
    4gb 1333mhz ddr3
    hd 5850
    antec three hundred case
    550w corsair psu
    arctic freezer pro cooler 7
  2. If you are lucky:
    3.6 (maybe even 3.8)

    More likely

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

  3. 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.
