Overclocking Intel's Core 2 Quad Q6600 Test Setup

Our Core 2 Duo E6700 and Core 2 Duo E6600 processors are emulated with a Core 2 Extreme X6800 with the appropriate multiplier selected in the motherboard's BIOS. The Q6700 we've tested was actually a QX6700, but since these processors are the same aside from the unlocked multiplier, you will see no differences in performance. Finally, we emulated our Athlon 64 X2 5600+ too with an Athlon 64 X2 6000+ using a 14.0x multiplier.
