I apologize, it was the chip he had before. The replacement is quite a nice upgrade as well.
Yeah it does seem a little nippier than before. And it's nice to be able to use it without the constant fear of BSOD any second.

I've had the old Q6600 for so long (at least 12 years now) that I can't even remember with 100% certainty if I did overclock it at any stage. But I have a hunch I did. And that's probably what did some lasting damage to it. It's also been in constant use for almost all of those years so I definitely got my moneys worth from it.

It's retired now to become...I dunno a really small coaster or piece of abstrac art.
