Jesus - that seems a little high on a E6300 due to its low multiplier - screenies or it didnt happen, and if it really is at that speed, BENCHMARK IT!

You can't get THAT lucky... Or maybe he actually has an E4300 and pulled a water system out of $400 to get to 3.6? Or just running at like 150 degrees with an E4300? Who knows..

edit: or that... my bad, cool build for $400.. PSU kinda sucks though and IIRC the eagle tech cases look so mind-numbling bad :O
