Sup Guys :hello: 

Just Wondering if any OC'ing God :sol:  Out There Would recomend me running my E7600 @ 3.00ghz With A 1333 Mhz FSB?
It came out Of the factory With A 3.06Ghz @ 1066FSB. Its running stable With my Slight vCore Tweak.
Temps are at about 42- 50 Under load
Still Running A stock cooler Im Broke at The Moment :??:  And I was thinking of buying a 1 TB Seagate drive (SATA 3) And ITs PCi Controller And Then Another 4GB Ram Chip @ 1333mhz to Get the dual banked functionality :na: 

Any suggestions on good heatsinks that will also be compatible with LGA 1366?

Thanxx In advance Tom's Hardware Is the best forum site for these kinds of things :lol: 

Heres My System Specs

Intel E7600
Gigabyte Odin 800W Modular
Gigabyte P43 (EP43T-UD3L)
Coolermaster 690 II Advanced (8 X 120mm Fans Blue Led)
Corsair Ram 4GB @ 1333MHZ
Windows XP Professional (SP3)
146.6GB Seagate Barracuda SAS x 4 (Raid 5) = 292GB 256M Cache Seagate Controller
Sapphire ATI RADEON 4850 1GB DDR3 OC Zalman Moddified Heatsink 39'C Idle & 50-60'C Heavy 3D Load (750ghz=Gpu + 1200mhz=mem) :bounce:

This should be your first stop. This is for DDR2 RAM
HOWTO: Overclock C2Q (Quads) and C2D (Duals) - Guide v1.6.1
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/240001-29-howto-overc...

Shadow's Gigabyte motherboard OC guide:
http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/page-245679_11_0.ht...
Also for DDR2 RAM. It's for an EP35-DS3L but all the Gigabyte Core2 BIOS's are similar.

Go through the guides. Then take your core voltage off Auto and set your memory voltage to factory recommended values. While you are sitting at stock frequency, adjust your RAM clock downward to 1066 MHz. Then when you start increasing your FSB frequency, your RAM clock will rise in step with it.

I have no idea how far you will be able to go, especially with stock cooling.

The E7600 is a Wolfdale - LGA 775.

For a serious overclock, you will need better than stock cooling. Here are three under $50 heatsinks that are pretty popular:
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus

Sunbeam
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Xigmatec Dark Knight
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

They all require a somewhat different approach to applying thermal compound.

And they are pretty large, so they might not fit inside your case.

Intel's max recommended CPU voltage is 1.3625 volts, but you are not going to be able to overvolt that much with stock cooling. Keep your CPU temps under 70 C.
