your are forgetting that 70C should be max for these chips.

AMD chips don't like heat

AMD x2 550 @ 3.4ghz

idle 22-23C
29-31C 24hour load.

And when you open AMD overdrive it will tell you the max safe volts for your CPU

I leave the ACC % stay at 0%

I read somewhere that the higher the % the higher overclock you can go and the lower values should allow for lower voltages and power.
