Default New Build with E5200 overclocked

Just built this baby and overclocked it yesterday. Ran Prime95 for 8 hours so I think it's stable.

Idle temps are 31-33 and at 100%, it got up to 57 degrees.

My CPU Core voltage in my BIOS is 1.3V but CPU-Z shows 0.98V, which one is right?

My first overclock so any suggestions would be great!

You're probably seeing the voltage when EIST is on (speedstep). Pretty good temps though, what are your running @ ?

That's not bad for 1.3v. Good temps too. What cooler are you using?

There's a small problem with my overclock now. I added a 4830 to my system and my overclock became unstable. Does anyone know how to correct this? Increasing the cpu voltage won't help, right? How about the NB voltage?

Any help would be appreciated!
