the e6600 is a little different to the e6300, it has 1mb of L2 cache on each core in addition to the 2mb shared L2 cache.

i've moved this thread to the appropiate forum, overclocking.

A Zalman CNPS9500 will do you good, for overclocking.

Oh...and you got the wrong ram by the way. It should be DDR2 ram. Get DDR2-800, to get a nice overclock.
