My final submission for this contest:

3DMark 03: 47296 Marks (8800GTX)
Videocard: 8800GTX @ 629MHz Core, 1000MHz RAM
CPU: Intel QX9650 @ 4.4GHz (1.55Vcore)

SuperPi 1M: 10.297s
CPU: Intel Core2Quad Extreme QX9650 @ 4.506GHz


Perhaps not good enough for the first place as best (Belgian) overclocker, but at least I had a lot of fun, and maybe it gets me a new laptop :woot:

Use bios F2 and you'll be hitting 10s flat pretty fast :)

Rip Qx9650 :(

It doesn\'t boot anymore on my X38-board and on my Striker II Formula, other CPUs are no problem. I guess the 1.7V was too much...

Back to Intel, maybe you get better batch :p

It\'s an ES I got off eBay, I don\'t think there\'s warranty on it...
