ya i just realized that made no sense at all.. hahaha

but... whatever... lol i raed something that wasnt there.. im' a sleepy man that went into work w/ about 2.5 hours of sleep... haha

some reason i thought there was mentioning of the yorkfields.... which is why i sold my q6600.. lol

lol.. i reread that... and should be changed to... "which is why i got rid of mine for money"

and anyway, completely off topic! deadmau5 is gonna be playing in cali again soon!!! i can't wait for that!!! and.... i wish i was 21.. because both benny benassi and dirty south are gonna be spinning at giant (i think its at the vanguard?) soon... i hate being 20! at least i'll get to see ATB this month

what frequency is your memory running at?
I have pc2 8500 i think, it can run at 1066, i was running it at 978, a 1:1 ratio

Also i have an ASUS hd 3870, it was running realy hot without an oveclock i dont know how acurate an ati overdrive is but it says 53 degrees at idle. is there any other more accurate temp moniters that i can use because i dont like those temps

53 is a good temp for any video card... video cards are allowed to run much hotter than cpu's

you should see the 2900xt's... those ran something that of 60 at idle.... and my old 8800gtx also ran at 60 idle

bah... in real life situations you'll notice the e8400 doing much better.. because not enough programs are even multi-threaded to utilize the q6600 anyway... don't worry about it

and what is your vid?
When you got your E8400 at 4.5 what were your other settings at in Extreme tweaker
