Re: want to take my Q6600 up to 3 mhz
its a Gateway machine, got it about a year ago, I dont have the specs on hand, and the stock fan is quite powerful on its own. I dont want to suicide run anything, and my ram is ddr2 600, so the fastest I could probably take it is 2.8 ghz? that shouldnt heat up much, should it? right now it runs pretty darn cool, but I'm never against adding anything, especially to boost performance, though I would like to stay away from hardcore aftermarketing (no water cooling, but im not adverse to adding a fan, heatsink, or some of that arctic putty)
but I think the limiting factor of my doing this is the motherboard, I will get all that info for you guys around 7 p.m. westcoast time. Thanks for the advice so far.
