    Default New Build

    I`ve finally got my first PC built and I would now like a bit of help fine tuning it, spec is:

    Gigabyte EP45 DS3L
    Intel Q6600 go stepping CPU
    OCZ Vendetta 2 CPU cooler
    Mushkin HP2 8500 2x 1Gb
    Samsung spinpoint F1 500 Gb HDD
    Samsung sata optical drive
    Gigabyte HD4850 1Gb graphics card (GV-R485MC-1GH)
    Asaka internal card reader
    Coolermaster igreen 600w PSU
    NZXT Hush case
    and also a Zigmatek crossbow for the CPU cooler

    I tested it at stock settings with Prime 95,Memtest 86+,OCCT and Linx 5 and passed without errors so I decided to up the ante and go for 3GHz which is running stable so far apart from one reboot which resulted in the mobo going back to optimized settings.One thing though, I can`t get Intel burn test to run more than 10%.

    I tested with Linx today and passed

    I still have some more test`s to do yet but here are my settings:

    Are these settings OK and what improvements could I make, also while testing with Linx the temps got to 72 degrees is this normal or a bit high?

    Thanks in advance
