Actually, 3.21 Ghz. I started oc'ing my new rig last night. Had it pretty stable at that. I'm going to tinker more this weekend after I'm sure it is handling that ok. 3.5Ghz is the target. Some people are doing that on air.
It seems pretty phenomenal considering the stock speed of this E6600 Core 2 Duo is 2.4Ghz.

You think that's who he was talking about when he said that?
Or was it a Scottish person being referred to or just some dude in particular?

Good Heavens Ms. Yakomoto, you're beautiful!!

Yes, but her tubes don't glow.
Well, probably not anyway. Was she living in Japan around 1945?

No, just blinded by science.

That's a smoking PC you have there.
What are you cranking up the power for?

Mostly? Just because I can. I can't say I do anything that really requires it. Even the high-end games I play were running just fine at stock.
I always wanted to build some whiz bang rig and oc it. Until now, it never made much sense to me. I can actually notice a difference with a ~1Ghz oc. In the days of the original pentium and even the first p4's it didn't seem like you really got that much more out of it unless you wanted to get into using an evaporative refrigeration sort of setup.
2.4-3.2 though, that's 33%. My target is stable 3.5. People are getting better than that on air, but they keep the room cool and probably jump through all sorts of other hoops.
I had an OMG, I just killed something moment last night. I'm in the midst of oc'ing and testing and everything shuts off. I didn't notice it was *everything* as my initial panic made me neglect that there were no longer any lights on. Power was out int he whole neighborhood for about 45 mins. Heh... hella timing.

"Power was out int he whole neighborhood for about 45 mins." -- and YOU are overclocking your PC!
Coincidence? I think NOT!

Hmm... see, now I almost have to rig up a hydraulic system for the side covers so they open up like that.
