    So you don't need the bridge any longer?

    I got my friend's Q6600 up and running WCG. It is currently at stock speeds (he didn't want to OC), but it is still on almost all of the time, so I should get a pretty big PPD boost :toast: :toast:

    Clock for clock a C2Q still is a better cruncher than a Phenom II X4 right? Anybody with a PII 965 or even 955 care to share what their rig scores in the WCG benchmark test (Advanced->Run CPU Benchmarks) and post the results? Thanks!

    I believe so, Anandtech's benchmark showed the Q9400 (2.66ghz) about equal, sometimes a bit faster/slower than the 3ghz Phenom II X4 940. Also, it drew ~35w less electricity. PM El Fiendo, I believe he has a Phenom II X4 955 running, I can provide the benchmarks of my Q9400 if you want.

    If anybody's interested in ^that^ board and an i7 860, let me know. I might want to grab that combo and swap my processor for it.

    Well got the PII 965BE up and running, going on its initial overnight 100% run now :rockout:

    [​IMG]

    The temp worries me a little for stock clocks, its on an ISGC-300 HSF with a CM 120mm fan. Should I be concerned?

    I think I will have to look at the Vcore closely tomorrow or Wed. I think when I was in the BIOS it has it @ 1.46 which would be fine- if it were clocked at 4.2ghz. I will either drop the Vcore or bump the multi, but only when I have the time to run stability tests on it.

    Thanks. I'm loving this setup. Will drop the vcore a little bit, think ill settle with it at 4.0 and call it a wrap. Plenty enough for me :) I'll play with that some more later.

    Looks great :rockout: like the Unfinished Bridge wallpaper too, Interfacelift ftw.

    What clocks were the 955 at? Those benchmarks are much higher than my 965.
