    It is a suicide shot, the Highest stable so far is below. The volts are high, but the temps are surprisingly good, theres more yet I reckon

    3DS Max has been leveraging multiple CPU cores before dual-core was even a wink in an Intel engineers eye. So yes, a Q6600 will make a dramatical difference in rendering times.

    i have..it's amazing. With 4 gig of ram I can do anything.....while doing anything else!

    I had Lineage2 running, (trading in the marketplace) and had Moviemaker making a movie that was 15 mniutes long, and so decided to boot Il-2 1946 up and run a few practive missions...and it was smooth as silk!

    Unreal power.
