don't they void the warranty if you put mx-2 on your gpu?

That makes me happy, I may consider a nice cooler now.

I can really notice the difference of my overclock on my q6600 g0. Once its at 3.2 i can say i highly noticed the difference in crysis.

Heh reread my post duder, yer running basically the identical set up as me. You can easily run at 3.1 on stock voltage if that is a concern.

what kind of temps are you getting? I need more comprehensive overclocking help :P all I know how to do is change the fsb, are the multipliers always locked for non xtreme intel chips?

Set fsb voltage to +1
Set cpu voltage to 1.35V
Set memory voltaget to .2+
Set pci-e voltaget to .1+
Set memory timings to auto and 2.0 on the divider
Set FSB to 400
boot, watch temps, adjust accordingly

Right now playing pretty much every game, im not going over 50C but then again both of the betas i'm playing are multithreaded and not pushing any core over 50&#37;.

Oh ya, its also usually under 70 degrees in my apt due to the weather finally cooling off.

jeeze... that is amazing... do they think they would cover volt mod deaths too? there won't be any physical burning... (i hope?) I guess I'll call and confirm that myself, jeeze that is quite amazing... EVGA wins my vote twice now

Right now playing pretty much every game, im not going over 50C but then again both of the betas i'm playing are multithreaded and not pushing any core over 50%.

what about just OCing to 2.7 ghz so i dont have to touch any of the CPU voltage? Also are you sure you increase teh PCI-E voltage? Ive never heard of that before
