    Dunno about air cooling at that speed, gonna use watercooling next week with the P5B Deluxe mobo, hoping to get at least 3GHz from it, anything more will be a bonus.

    That speed with air cooling for 24/7 use is pretty unlikely, unless you get a really good cpu.

    I got my E6600 @ 3.3Ghz (367 x 9) and use 1.4V on the CPU and 2.0V on RAM (G-Skill 6400-NR 2 x1Gb). I'm running a DS3 with F7 bios. My temps are good - CPU is never above 50C even on load in a warm room.

    I also upped some of the board voltages as suggested by +0.1V

    Had mine running at 3.6 with 1.4vCore and 1.55vMch, but had to back it off as temps were just too high..... 70+ at load

    GSte,

    you must have a really good chip then as I have tried can boot into windows at 1.5vcore 2.10 ram 1.67vMch and as soon as I ran orthos cpu hit 86c an I stopped test straight away I in in no doubts that the temp would have hit 90+

    Yeah, you did have higher vCore and very high vMCH. The voltage is where all the heat comes from
