    Thanks for the answer..... Illinois Huh???? Well I am just right across the boarder to your North there. And even though you might still be a little mad about the whole my Packers kicking the crap out of your Bears NFC championship thing. When your done with the system you mind driving it up to my house and giving it to me? LOL

    On a serious note Nice awesome job on the PC man and nice results with that second chip so far. Keep up the good work.

    Eh, noise doesn't really bother me but its pretty loud. Its about as loud as a small window AC, definently drowns out any fans you have in the PC. It can also serve as a space heater in the winter. :laugh:

    Anyways today I get to mess with a 3rd 2600k (ninja swapped it out of a coworkers PC), which I was able to get to boot using with the 56x multi, but completely unstable. Its something to go off of though I guess. :)

    Sounds like you are getting lucky with these 2600Ks I am probably going to upgrade to SB when I get my car running good. My car spends more money than I do.

    After playing with 5 different 2600k chips and feedback from other enthusiasts, it's seems very difficult to find chips that will do more than 5.6ghz stable despite vcore, VCCIO, VRM adjustments. Unlike prior platforms, hard walls exist often before heat ever becomes a limiting factor.

    Maybe its wattage limited....say 125W and they lock it? It is what mine pulls when it stops;)

    good luck. I sold my 59 multi chip for a very hefty premium. Haven't seen many of those, most are 5.0-5.6 with PLL overvolt enabled, that I've played with.

    So my 3rd proc has a core that likes to become unstable so I disabled it and I'm having some luck with running the 56x multi stable on 3 cores. The app that this pc is being built to run is single threaded so this is totally acceptable. More to come.

    Actually not at the 56x multi but I'm liking it. :D finally got my 5.6

    edit: got my sights set on 5.7 now :D

    edit again: down to 2 cores now, which is helping temps a lot. I need both of these, one for OS and background, one for the single threaded app. Results looking pretty good, this proc seems to like the 55x multi better than the 56x one.
