    Tc is about 70 degrees C for the Q6600. 68 to 80 degrees C is not good for the CPU

    80 is peak during stress test, 68 is under load. Idle is I think 40-50. It is hot, yes, but he's buying a water cooler soon, so am I =] it's expensive though, I'm gonna be saving up for about a decade... I gotta get £864 somehow (I'm 14, so it's looking quite bleak).

    Try something called Prime95 when your finished, it's a stress tester, to see if you're still running stably.
    What my friend does, is he run benchmark tools and writes them down, overclocks until he can't boot windows properly, then goes down a bit till he can, then runs Prime95 for 6 hours, and then after it tells him he's stable he goes up slightly and does it again. He tells me his Q6600 is usually running around 68-80*C. I've got the Q8200, and, while it is good, it's not much of a gaming processor. For that, I'd go for AMD. What are you planning to use this for? My current system is a media computer (although I only use paint and occasionally photoshop...)

    Good luck.
    Hello

    So I could get to 2.8GHz without to much trouble, using the stock cooler?

    Thanks

    To answer what I will be using it for;

    - Home Server (with Enterprise type software)
    - Virtualisation

    Please confirm that I can get it to 2.8GHz!

    Thanks in advance,

    Panarchy

    I'm not 100% because I've not done it, but I'm confident. Don't jump there though, do it properly. 100% you'll get it to 2.6, you may even get to 3.6, you never know.

    Just keep going up by 50Mhz at a time till you reach 2.6, then 10MHz at a time (I know, that'll take ages) till you get as high as you can. Then go down a bit, then run Prime95, if it runs stably, stay there. If not, go back to the previous setting or halfway in between and give it a go. I think you'll almost certainly get to at least 2.8GHz though, so good luck.
    Current system:
    - Intel Q8200 Processor (2.33GHz) (7x multi, roughly 340MHz FSB)
    - Intel DG45ID Motherboard (stupid locked BIOS >:( )
    - 6 GB DDR2 RAM (667MHz)
    - PNY GeForce 9500GT (750MHz Core clock, 1900MHz Shader clock, 500MHz Memory clock)
    -585GB SATA HDD (7200RPM)

    Thanks mate.

    I might as well practise this on my Q6600 with my Zalman 9700LED... before I buy this home server.

    Thanks,

    Good idea, test it on another processor.

    By the way, he told me today he's on 3.2GHz on stock cooling. He's using a 9x multiplier, but I'm not sure what his FSB is.
    Current system:
    - Intel Q8200 Processor (2.33GHz) (7x multi, roughly 340MHz FSB)
    - Intel DG45ID Motherboard (stupid locked BIOS >:( )

    No, I mean I will be buying the exact same processor that I already have!

    I'll do my best.

    Ok. If you're not an Intel fan, then you might consider getting a Phenom II. The Black Edition comes for about £190 ($277) or the standard for about £110 ($160), and its supposedly able to get to 4GHz on air (Definately to 3, because the Black Edition is clocked at that.) If you can find a cheap AM3 motherboard and some DDR2 or DDR3 RAM (I've seen a DDR2 Socket AM2+/AM3 for around £85, $124 USD).

    Yes, but does the AMD Phenom II support Hardware Virtualisation?

    Looks like it:

    "Key Architectural Features of AMD Phenom™ X4 Quad-Core Processors
    AMD Virtualization™ (AMD-V™) With Rapid Virtualization Indexing

    • Silicon feature-set enhancements designed to improve the performance, reliability, and security of existing and future virtualization environments by allowing virtualized applications with direct and rapid access to their allocated memory.
      • BENEFIT : Helps virtualization software to run more securely and efficiently enabling a better experience when dealing with virtual systems"

    Is that what you mean?
