Stida's overclocking topic
However I'm not really an overclock-elite-trooper also joined the overclocking contest (we all need a little challenge, don't we??)
CPU: Intel Q6600 (B3)
CPU cooling : Scythe Ninja CU
GPU: HD 2600 XT 256MB GDDR4 (Sapphire)
GPU cooling : Stock
MOTHERBOARD : Asus P5K (no mods)
MEM: Corsair XMS2 1024MB (*2)
PSU: OCZ 600watt gamexstream
I only have air cooling for this all, but I'll try my best!

only the black one attached to the heat sink cools the cpu (and it cools the north bridge too, because it blows a bit under the heat sink too).
The blue one on top, pulls the air out of the heat sink too, and blows it on the hot backside of the gfx-card
The blue one on the bottom of the case cools the ram and the north bridge

I already did some CPU overclocking (2.4Ghz --> 2.8Ghz for 24/7 stable), and ran a few benches just for fun and the looks (who doesn't love 3Dmark graphics??)
I had no experience with GPU overclocking yet.
So yes, first time to overclock for benches

and another (little) update:
I pushed the cpu to 3Ghz (428*7):
GPU stock (800 core, 1100 Mem)
(Cpu 600Mhz extra --> 1430 marks extra)
GPU overclocked (860core, 1200Mem)
The difference isn't really shocking.
In some of the tests, the FPS is exactly the same. And the CPU test is a bit worse, but I think is was just a bit bad luck...
