Well at 3.1Ghz under Orthos load my temps are in the 55's. V.Core is at 1.325 in BIOS, CPU-Z shows 1.264 V.core.
I know I can get to 3.2Ghz, Haven't ventured beyond that as I had to bump the V.core up to 1.435 to get 3.2Ghz to run stable. Temps got into the 58-59's under Load. I am worried about setting the V.core to 1.5 in the BIOS, If it is too high what happens? Will it boot into windows but just have very high temps!?
I wouldn't mind seeing 3.4Ghz stable:) People were telling me to keep the temps below 60C if possible.
Thanx again for the help guys
