    That is fine. It is the load temperature you have to watch out for. Under 70 should be fine.

    its quite cool.
    if ur temperature goes above 85 degree ..
    then only u have to worry.

    just lower the graphics setting of the games to lower the temperature.
    Good luck


    Made a mistake in the thread, I meant oc'ed to 2.9 ghz. I corrected it. So it is this ok for this speed?

    OC it till ur GPU temp reaches till 75 degree at the time of gameplay.

    It is oc'ed to as high as it well go. It is a Dell XPS 420 computer. I had to tape mod the pins. IT already has a decent sized aftermarket air fan cooler that came with the pc. Cannot change it.

    sorry i mean CPU ... :)
    get a good CPU cooler if u already dont hav..
    and OC it till 75 degree at load.
    u will get better performance in overclocked CPU...

    nice....
    u are good to go.. :)


    My post didnt come out. I was trying to say that it is oc'ed to as high as it will go. It is a Dell XPS 420. It has a decent sized air cooler that is stock with it. Cannot be changed.

    ok.

    does the CPU usage is low at the time of gaming....?


    About 33 percent
  8. mhtsgr9 said:
    very low.. :(
    this is beacuse ur CPU is getting bottlenecked. :(


    So if I get a better gpu than my cpu wont be bottled necked?

    CPU is bottlecnked.
    get a better CPU ..
    ur cpu is becoming weaker as compared to ur GPU ..
    the only way is to overclock ur CPU or get a new powerfull CPU.



    My cpu is oc'ed as much as it can go. Is a Dell so to even oc it I had to do a tape pin mod, bios won't work.

    No. If the cpu usage is low in the game, but the GPU usage is high it means the GPU is bottlenecking the system.

    Which would mean you need a better GPU, not CPU.
