I have my c2d at 30% overclock with stock voltage settings and it idles around low-mid 30C. You can see Intel obviously has headroom in the CPU design and they recently announced 1333 MHz FSB version. I aim for bias towards silent computing over maximum stable OC, the little extra bit I could get in performance I don't really need/care about.

Cranked my C2D E6750 to 3.2GHZ (stock 2.66), mobo is managing voltage...running at 33C with the crappy Intel fan/sink.

Temp issues at 3.6ghz (65C under full load in orthos)...Need an aftermarket cooler.

Stabilizes at 55C @ 3.2ghz under full load in orthos. Not too shabby for the stock sink and fan, though the fact that I have 4 120mm case fans probably helps a lot.

61 degrees 3.6 ghz quad 24/7 temps and stability are Prime95 small ftts multi. You will never run your rig that hard..... Mem is at 1600mhz and 8800gts 320mb is at 678/1700/1100.
The CPU has a Coolit freezone Elite and the 8800 is stock cooler.
But can you play Minesweeper on it?

The blue lights totally cancel out any speed you could've possibly attained.

3+ yrs & 5 upgrades later, this thread is funny
...and 3.5 *more* years later, i can't ever imagine wanting to overclock anything, if even there's the ability to -- what with all teh iPad/kindle/tablet/thin client madness that's taken over

Actually there are ROMs for overclocking ARM IT appliances...

Jeez, overclocking is easier than ever now.

The processors are running cooler and with less power, so they have more overhead for overclocking. Android tablets can be overclocked by moving dials in an app. It's all so simple.

Back in my day, we did it with jumpers :shakefist:
