Hey Everyone,


I've been keen to upgrade my good old reliable Core2Duo E4500 to a Core2Quad Q6600. A mate of mine is selling his Q6600 which he never really overclocked. He's asking $170 for it. Is that a good price?


It comes with a stock heatsink/fan but I'll be using my Xigmatek s2183 Red Scorpion to get a good overclock. I currently have a Gigabyte EP45-DS4P motherboard.





Should I go for it? What are these CPU's capable of in terms of overclocking?
