Hi

I am overclocking a Dual core. I got to 3.8Ghz and the temp was at 55 C when idle and went to 67 C when running anything worth talking about. How hot can I let this go? What is the optimal temperature to run this processor. I tried using a coolmaster water cooling unit (currently using Zalman CNPS9500) and the temp when to 75 C. Can anyone recommend a good water cooler. I want to push this to 4.1 GHz.

KT.

Let me guess, 805?
What did I win? :lol: 

What do you need 4.1 Ghz for?

lol, they supposed the forum could use some more abuse. 67c or whatever isnt that bad, it is intel we're talking about here... obviously not much headroom though..

While i can't say that TOM's is to blame for this, i do think they "may" have

made it sound a little too easy to overclock to those levels. I guess you have

to figure that people who have no idea about O/Cing, are going to read this,

you still like to think that warning people that YMMV will make them consider

the lack of gauranteed results. I guess it's sorta like if you throw a party, and

someone gets p*ssed drunk, then drives and get's into an accident. You

think...hey they're adults, they can make their own decisions...But by

serving them....you are still partly liable(this is changing as we speak in

Canada, thanks to the Supreme Court). :?

I disagree It is "that easy" to overclock and that toms review is pretty much an overclocking guide.
but i do agree some people are wreckless and take the plunge not knowing what they are getting into.
As far as the orignal question Chuckshissle has posted good links.

If it's "THAT"easy, then why are you not at 4GHz. You have a BT,lapped,and

a list of very good HW. See, he (and most of the other people who jumped

for it after that article) thinks..."I Want To Hit 4.1.....Like TOM's".

Myself I don't really think x2 of anysort sould be overvolted for the fact that 2 small cores in one die is alot of temps for a core but very true if the surface is cooler so will the core.
