My target OC is about 3.4 – 3.6. Anyone been successful at OCing to that with the spec below?

Also, anyone use the Xigmatek spoiler and find it actually conduct additional air down?

All CPU's will OC differently, meaning some will go higher than others. But I would say that with that set up, it is a safe bet that you will be able to reach your goal with no problems.

Yes it is.


You using the stock heatsink ? might be something to consider changing if you plan on going past 3.6

Using the XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 with the additional bracket.

Your setup is more than capable of getting the Q6600 to 3.6GHz. The EP45-UD3x series are really good motherboards for overclocking. Read the guides and you should have no problem.
