jeeze thats terrible. I have a $300 wc setup that keeps my qx6700 b3 sitting at a nice 22C idle and it never goes over 42C on a long full load of maya rendering. I feel sorry for you

lol i won't mind so much by the end of the week XD some poor fool's gonna end up with this on ebay. >.>

if you see a cheap q6600 from 'thedyingdaylights' dont buy it lol. unless you want to boil water for a soup using your pc.

And actually vern, it'll only destroy most games that aren't RTS.

Supreme commander at will Decimate my rig at high res. it's intense. way too many units for this chip to handle on its own. i was cheatin in single player on C&C3 and gave the computer a ton of units, as soon as I gave the AI back control of the units the thing nearly froze. like 2-4fps lol. trying to process too many things at once >.>

so much for my epic battle lol. I have it saved at the same spot, i'mma re-try it at 4.4Ghz or something and see if it makes a difference with that and 45nm.

Yeah FPS at 1920x1200 is around 15-40. average 25ish. Skips a lot, not really playable. Luckily new cards next month XD If I can't play native res then no way i'm keeping it >.> it's too hot anyway
