    Not for a SuperPi test. Come on man, pay attention to what you are posting. I have yet to see a decent post from you.

    Wow, you got higher than the guy with the 7 Ghz, you should try to break the 4Ghz mark and hit below 10 s for 1M

    I didn't think it was that good... My mates are getting similar with e6420's etc.

    It's not a highly technical overclock, all i did was lock the PCI bus at 100, drop the RAM Divider, and up the FSB.

    Here's the CPUz:

    It does spoil you though, when I look at a customers PC, they all seem slow.

    Not that expensive really, $320 for CPU, $140 for Board, $120 for RAM {was on sale!} thats Australian $, by the way.

    You'll get about the same with any C2D at that speed, it only uses 1 core {I've watched the "Performance" thingamy in Task Manager while SuperPi runs}

    Vista here as well. e6700@3.00ghz. 2gb of g.skill @800mhz. Looks like my extra L2 cache may be helping catch up to your 3.4ghz :cool:

    Your cpu usage is only 0% ?? Oh yes you had no internet explorer running.

    Ya my computer runs very few processes. I didn't have anything running when I ran that except my av and my firewall and a spyware program. My normal setup, as in right now as I write this I have 24 processes running, including my browser, and a game controller (I was playing TombRaider Legends! LOL). I still got the same score though. Even with this text window open.

    Must be a good computer (good specs). I sometimes wonder why things like rundll32 run on computers when you are not using them and it runs under our user name. so we are using them??

    rundll32.exe Run a .dll as an app. For instance i have made yahoo mail as my default mail service. So when I click on a mailto: link the yashoo mail window opens instead of the one in internet explorer. The file uses the rundll32 to run the application. Most of the ones that use it can usually be found in root\windows\downloaded programs file. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but thats how i think it works.

    As for the good computer thing, my 7800GT is a day away from taking a dump. One of the cores is less stable than the other so it limits what I do as far as overclocking. And I'm running a 20 pin power cord in a 24 pin mobo. lol
