be carefull on what waterblock you choose for the q6600, most are optimized for single cores and you will get un favorable results, the block has to have good cooling across the socket facing up and down the length of the mobo vs standard blocks that dump water across the center

and thats a pretty clean looking rig though, most of them have tubes everywhere <_<

Yeah I need to change a large number of parts for a Q6600. Luckily I work pretty close to Petras (from XS) and he usually has a good assortment of parts that so I can just go there and pick up whatever I need.
CSL replicas are now CSL counterfeits. Jesus saves, like Valentine1.

OK, y'all need to check out this thread

I must sadly admit I understood just about everything in here, but I'm on the fence about overclocking. Looking to bump up my old 939 4200+ dual core (can't remember the details). I'm running the ASUS A8N32-SLI, I think. Any rec's on the processeor?
