Yeh super PI only uses a single core. Was the e8500 watercooled to get that?

of course it was watercooled... i'd be an idiot to run 1.67v through a 45nm on air

IF you guys are only interested in gaming, you can just keep your q6600... You really won't notice a **** of a lot of difference. Like vedub said, at 3.2 your cpu is out of the equation. And a good Q6600 is able to reach 3.6ghz on air, so your not losing a helluva a lot.

CPU:Q6600 G0 @ 3.7Ghz (410x9 w/1.475v)
Motherboard:Asus P5E X38
Memory:2x2GB OCZ Reapers DDR2 1066
Graphics Card:GTX460 768MB @ 880/1760/2000
Hard Drive:2x WD Black 1TB
Power Supply:Xion 800W
CPU cooling: H50
GPU cooling: Best Stock Cooling I Have Ever Had
