also i did not increase my voltage i tried to go to 3.0ghz but when i applyed it the computer froze so had to do a hard reboot so overclocking it to 2.8 ghz is this safe

I believe this is in the wrong section.

And you only stressed it for an hour, that's no indication of anything at all. You should do it for at least 8-12 hours. The temps are a bit high for 2.8 though. What HSF and thermal compound are you using?

I said it was high, I never said it wasn't normal.

Again, what HSF and thermal compound are you using?

No. You can get far more than 3 out of a G0 revision Q6600, the only restrictions are your immediate hardware and your knowledge on overclocking. Of course not every G0 can do more than say, 3.2, but I've yet to hear of any G0 not being able to push beyond 3.

Again, an hour-long stability test is not an indication of stability at all. Run it longer.

so does that mean that 2.80ghz is safe used clockgen and buss speed 313

Okay, I should be more patient...

Once again, no, run it longer. 6-8, or 8-12 hours. If it fails it's not stable...also you're using Clockgen, I would never recommend overclocking from within Windows. The BIOS is where it's at but if that's too difficult to wade through then you should be fine with Clockgen.
