Rockin' seemed to have the same issue with his Asus P5K, and what my problem is, is getting it above 2.6ghz. I even re-app'd thermal paste and still no luck.
Also, original problem is that the OS's just refuse to work on the PC, and I've had reinstall XP and Vista maybe 5 times each, on top of that I am getting "disk read errors" all the time just after POST but before windows boot-up.
They don't really know how to fix these. They're thinking chkdsk /r will help but it will probably not, in which case I have a budget of $1700 - OS to build myself a new one on their website
What I'll probably throw in is:
Q6600 G0 edition
2gb XMS2 from corsair (avoiding the cheapo OCZ)
250gb seagate HD instead of WD like the current one
TT armor case still
Thermal Right 120-Extreme HS for the best cooling possible
700w TT toughpower PSU because so far I love how quiet it is, and I trust TT
Anything you'd change in there to relocate the cash for a "better" purpose?
