Alright, I just ordered a Q6600. I've been talking to my father about OC'ing technique and "theory" (I guess is the word to use)
He thinks it's pointless. Why shorten the life and stability of a cheaper processor to compete with the more expensive ones @ stock for a little while?
Of course I'm going to OC it anyway. ITS JUST WHAT YOU DO, right? :P
So the question is: is CPU temperature the reading of the surface of the processor? Isn't it creating more heat inside of the processor, and is that the temperature being reported?
Like a car, the temperature inside the radiator doesn't have much in common with the temp inside the engine. It's just a general idea.
Same concept? Point out my ignorance and correct me.
