My System Specs

Dancing_Banana Updates

FYI I just reformatted my pc so I could install a Raid 0 on 3 drives and discovered that EVGA had released P31 Bios update. This update has allowed me to OC my Q6600 from 2.8 to 3GHZ and I was able to tighten my memory timing to 4 5 5 16 2T at 900mhz a very significant boost in performance that allowed me to break the 14k mark on 3DMark06. Amazing what a little Bios update can do

Thumbs up

Theres no doubt about it....besides some frequent "if it ain't broke don't touch it" theorists.........that a bios udate for the majority, fixes more than it breaks.
