:(

 

I have about 20 LGA775 chips. Issue is it'd cost more on import than they're worth :P

damn. got any core 2 quads on your hands?

Arctic cooling freezer 7 pro rev 2 LOL

 

alright, ill try to look in the bios now :)

That's what I'm using, and the way it is on my core 2 at stock clock (the cooler for the P4 it replaced does a better job)  I don't hold too many hopes for good temps when I OC. Even ghetto mounting fans to push/pull more air through the heatsink had no impact, even with the case open.

If all goes well I'll have mine gunning for it by mid Janurary. :D

You have 489CB R15 to beat and 5.39 (higher than a 2500k) to beat in R11.5 ;)

Have you ever done before and after intelburn tests? Because this is the kind of performance I'm hoping to exceed:

I'd try some Conroes, dump them at high voltage.

 

And try a Pentium with a high clock speed and 1066MHz FSB (E6600 or something...!).

Conroes can actually take quite a bit of abuse when it comes to voltage. Not my words, since my motherboard doesn't allow overclocking, but they do take abuse.

too expensive for now. i need some pentiums and c2d's to warm up before i get to quad core Xeon's and c2q

better off getting a xeon, either x3220 or x5450 for £20 and modding it, will be infinitely better than a 6600

But I thought xeons weren't overclockable.
