FS: Live 6 w EIC, Operator

I like Live but its not working for me so time to let it go. Who knows, maybe someday I will really find a host I like. My loss is your gain. This is a boxed edition of Live 6 with EIC (Essential Instrument Collection). It is an Educational edition (now idea how I ended up with it but I had no probl...

XP will see up to 4GB of memory minus whatever is need for the IO address space of your peripherals (mostly video car memory and BIOS). What you are thinking of is that XP only assigns 2 GB of virtual memory to each process running.

times 4, right?

Err maybe :D

The CPU has a clock multipler of 9 that is where the 3.01 GHz comes from. But the actually FSB since the C2D has the quad pump thingy is times 4 for 1336

That was the B3 steppings that were pretty painful to OC. The G0s are *suppose* to be a lot better. Of course I am just happy getting 3 GHz on it and anything after that is gravy.

I would stick with your DDR2 800. I would not get the QX6850, get a good mobo and oc a Q6600 to 3 GHz on a good aftermarket HSF. Will save you a lot of money which you could use for some new plugs or beer. There are no 15K RPM SATA drives (unless they came out in the last week or so) and even the 10...

Not on the stock fan but on an aftermarket HSF, Silverstone Nitrogen NT01v2. Yes been stress tested no issue hottest it got was 55C underload. Even my C2D E6600 had no issues running at 3 GHz with just an mid level aftermarket HSF. Ran it at 3.2 GHz on watercool constantly, 3.4 GHz was just too hot ...

Yes it clocks up to 3.01 GHz with no issues on air cooling. I just moved so my water cooling setup is not well setup :) I am sure I should have no problems comfortable running 3.5 GHz

I overclocked my C2D E6600 and now I am overclocking my C2Q Q6600. As one of the posts above mentions, it all depends on your hardware not just the CPU on how far you can push things and remain stable.

check out forum.insanelymac.com. If you are not very computer savy I would not even bother trying this. EDIT: I did the whole OS X thing on the PC. I used Asus P5B Deluxe/Wifi motherboard with an Intel Core2Dou E6600. Was pretty straight forward for me to get it working after spending lots of time r...

Hmm $149 to upgrade from K2. I think I'd rather save up another $50 and get Sampler.

I think the price is awesome and looks pretty good to me. I am not going to dump Live for it. I wonder if it will run under OSx86 :D
