fsb of 1066
i want to take the e6800 to 3.6ghz so.. so i set it 400x9=3.6ghz

let me know if i'm right.
Here is what I got sitting in my room
1. Intel E8400
2. DFI Blood Iron P35
3. OCZ StealthXstream 600W PSU
I WANT to at least Hit 4.0ghz. Since I have a multiplier of 9 I would need to have my fsb at 445mhz. I can either go with DDr2-800 and overclock the ram or get DDR2-1000 and...
check it out. some of you may have seen this but this is my first time coming across such an idea of leaving the heat pipe exposed allowing direct contact with the cpu's heat spreader.
