First thing I did - mind you I don't see why it would make a difference - I ALWAYS leaving Coo'n'quiet on in the bios - I control the on/off in windows, most of the time it's on - when using office applications, surfing, etc. C&C should not have any effect on OCing since the CPU adjusts itself based on the load - it goes from its base voltage down to the C&C values and back up again when it needs it. Overclocking attempts was done WITH and WITHOUT CC enabled, and it made no difference - I remember I could OC my old CPU from 2.0 to 2.4. Anyways I'm happy with the stock speeds I guess, maybe the Brisbanes overclock better.
