Re: q6600 g0, 680i wont go above 2.8
It OC's fine untill above 3ghz, then it doesnt want to go any higher, i would think it would be the mobo since it clearly states on the box "does not support quad overclocking"
No i didnt lap my heatsink or proc, but i've been thinking of doing the heatsink.
Oh ya, could my OC'ing problems be my memory in anyway? I have the Ram at 800 and 4-4-4-12 t2, and its unlinked from the fsb obviously.
LOL, i just ran prime with windows closed and was near 69C... so then i opened the windows and took a shower and came back and with prime running it was 64C to 66C... kind of a big drop. So now when i run prime i'll have windows open i guess.
