Any garbage cooler can do that...

But since every person wants to go to 3.6ghz, I'm pretty sure thats what he meant..

But don't whine if you can't get there, each Q6600 is different, and you won't get there on every single chip, nowadays most normal chips have trouble pushing past 3.3ghz.

Well, I've had a couple of whiners here before, and then they have some nerve to question my tech-skill when they get an unlucky chip.. so I tell people in advance now xD
