    Q6600 @ 67C

    I'm wanting to overclock my B3 Q6600 at home. I made a thread about this previously, and to some people, my CPU seems to be running warm at stock. I have an arctic freezer 7 pro, and my idle temps run at about 47C, 62C or so at load. Granted, I put in new thermal paste over the weekend, so...

    CPU overheating problem

    sounds like the problem I had. What I did the 1st time around is buy some new thermal compound since the stock stuff didn't apply too well. Temps went down from there.

    I think my Q6600 is running slow..

    I have an older Chieftec Dragon case, so compared to today's cases, the airflow isn't all that good. The office in which the PC sits also happens to be the warmest room in the house come afternoon, as the sun directly hits the room through a single-paned window (ugh, i know). I have 5 case...

    I think my Q6600 is running slow..

    I just installed the Arctic Freezer 7 Pro: Running Prime95. I'd say it's doing a lot better, wouldn't you guys say?

    I think my Q6600 is running slow..

    About 26C(80F) right now. It probably gets to 22C in the evenings. But it's not summer here (in Texas), so it's likely to get warmer.

    I think my Q6600 is running slow..

    UPDATE - I reapplied the heatsink with some new thermal compound. I set the multiplier back to 9x, and idle is now about 40c. Load is about 72c max. I like what I am seeing, but I'm still going to get a new heatsink this weekend when I get a chance to mess around. Thanks, guys

    I think my Q6600 is running slow..

    Okay guys, it looks like the multiplier in BIOS was only set to 6x. I set it to 9x, and the temps were not running good at all. It's running 44c now in idle, but when I ran Prime95, the temps went above 80C. I was going to look in getting a new heatsink anyhows, hopefully I can run better...

    I think my Q6600 is running slow..

    For some reason the core speed will never go above 1600 MHz. This is a shot I took when running Prime95. Could anyone tell me what gives? Running stock cooler. EDIT: mobo is Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L

    Which is YOUR Favorite Web Design Software?

    When I first started off in web design, it used to be Dreamweaver. As I started doing some programming, then I moved to Homesite. It was pretty old, but it had support for ASP, Javascript and cold fusion. Now I use Visual Studio 05 exclusively.

    2405FPW lag shots

    I am going to assume that the 2405FPW is not running at native resolution. Doesn't the monitor resample (maybe more like reconvert) the image displayed?

    Web suggestions/critiques

    I'd consider redoing the banner. The Arrow logo needs to be sharper, and the images make the banner too busy. I'd also get rid of the "Since 1930" subbanner, and incorporate that into the main banner. As for the nav on the left, I'd put at least alt tags on those images to improve search...

    So...What music do you guys (and gals) listen to while you program?

    What do you do with dual monitors?

    As a current web developer, 2 screens are very benefical to me. It effectively increases productitivity by 50% in my case. I use one screen for coding, Photoshop, and Flash, and use the other for Outlook, website testing, running databases (Access, SQL Server), and server access.

    my new 1080p dlp tv

    One of two things: (provided the mitsubishi can take 720p, which it should) If the xbox 360 is set to 1080i, then the 360 upconverts the game into 1080i, which in turn gets upconverted again into 1080p by the mitsubishi. If the xbox 360 is set to 720p, then the game outputs at 720p, only...

    Two quick 2405FPW questions

    I have a 5200 here at work, supports the 1920x1200 res. Yours should, too. Personally to me, the games on the original Xbox in 480p look like crap. 720p is better (for the games that do support it). Get the 2405 for the workspace, not for you to play Xbox games on.

    .AddAttachment(path_of_file) You can't use the request object. Use the FileSystemObject in order to write the file to a directory, then recall that file name using the code above.

    New PC or Keep Xbox 360
