I suppose I was lucky to get an e6600 that clocks well, but again it comes down to buying early processors, the ones that come out in the beginning are almost always better overclockers.

I picked up this chip in December of 2006, not long after it came out.
I got mine September of 2006

Running at 3.2ghz , enough for me.

I'm gonna drop in my better ram soon and try it agin with some tighter timings, this was done with some rubbish 5-5-5-18 DDR2-800 4gb kit.

Got some lovely 1066mhz Patriot kicking around that I'll drop in.
