    proposed E6750 system - advice please

    Hi there. This is my proposed system:

    - Antec P182
    - Corsair HX620W
    - GigaByte GA-P35C-DS3R
    - C2D E6750
    - OCZ 2x1GB PC2-6400 Platinum CL4
    - XFX 8800GTS 320MB Extreme ED

    The plan is for a modest overclock: Set the clock to 400-420, 1:1 memory timings, which should result (if my maths is correct) in a 3.2-3.3Ghz core speed.

    Am i correct in my belief that this should be managable with stock voltages and cooling?
    Any other comments or criticisms are welcome.
    Thanks

    That all looks fine. You would get away with the 520w version of the psu but both are good.

    I'm not a big fan of gigabyte but that boards seems to do quite well. I'd personally use the abit IP-35/pro

    The IP 35 is superb! I have it in a very similar setup.
    Not around too often!

    I think that the gigabyte bios (if its similar to the 965 ds3) is a bit strange. It does overclock but i think its probs better to go with something like the IP35 or the P5K

    I've got no problems at all with the bios on my 965 ds3, it's a really stable board

    Remember to get a good HSF to replace the stock one when you overclock.

    Ah, a reference to my original question! So, you think a proper cooler, even for a fairly small oc?

    For the silence more than anything. Stock cooler isn't very good and is loud.

    No point having an antec p182 and that cooler imo.

    I'm still using the stock Intel cooler and so far have had no problems at all.
