Okay guys, I updated the guide (now version v1.2). It has been streamlined, dead/bad links removed, etc.
Is that monster responsible for your folding output going up so nicely? 4 cores -- 4 instances? Temps with all 4?

I need to buy some cheap tubing to mess around with the setup on my test bench before I use the Tygon in my case.

@nater - your temps are very good for an air cooled machine... must be lapped?

thanks for the guide graysky, it helped out in my first intel OC. (see sig)
by chance do you need to update the core voltage for the quad cores to
0.85V – 1.5V , or am i reading the specs wrong on intel's site?

Yeah, that's interesting. They changed it!

I'm getting similar temps at 3.5 GHz, but I don't have it stable yet, and mine is a air cooled and not lapped. I'll post here when it's stable, the 6600 G0 is pretty sweet.

It runs 50C idle with speedstep enabled.

Upon further tests, I just couldn't keep stable at 3.5, and trying to get 3.3 for some reason wouldn't allow posting (***?) so I just went back down to 3.2, which is still powerful enough for me until I get water cooling.
Just updated the guide to version 1.3 which contains new info, fixes, clean-ups, etc. Enjoy!
Version is now 1.5.2 (updates in first post)
Guide is now version 1.6
• Added a detailed section to help you find the minimum stable CPU and MB vcore settings. Check it out (near the bottom of the guide entitled, “Stress Testing and Minimizing Your Vcores”)!
• Updated the CPU table
• Provided a less than $5 method you can use to shave off some NB load temps (in the thermal management section at the end of the guide).
