Overclocking Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800
The connection between Dothan and Conroe, the code-name for the Core 2 processors, have been discussed earlier here at NordicHardware: Intel Core - The New Ruler. Now it's time to take a look at the overclocking potential of these well performing processors. This is our third detailed overclocking article here at NordicHardware and we will thoroughly dissect Intel's top model, Core 2 Extreme X6800, in the same manner as we've done with AMD's FX-57 and Intel's Pentium 4 660. As usual we will use a number of different cooling solutions ranging from regular air cooling to more extreme compressor setups.

Why oh why did they take weak aircooling and not a real heatsink :/
water failed completly

I think the real purpose was to show off the Phase/Cascade cooling;)

a peltier would have been interesting too, together with a highend heatsink it could be a great solution for Core 2

A peltier setup that is powerfull enough to keep your overclocked Core 2 Duo well below ambient is not a easy task to aircool. Let's say your CPU is about 100W overclocked. U will need atleast a peltier with Qmax = 150W te keep it cool enough for your overclock being stable (with anything lower I don't think your cpu will be much cooler then a watercooling setup). So a 150W peltier, that could be around 180W of heat. Plus, the processors heat... To much for aircooling
