Re: Anyone here overclocked a Intel Q9450 before?
on a 45nm cpu, 1.35vcore is not as low as it would be on a 65nm, like your e6600, and my q6600.
Eastwood, do you have $35 laying around? You would benfit from an aftermarket heatsink because those idle temps are terrible, although to be expected from a stock intel heatsink.
