This is an old screenshot from about a month ago.

I've improved my cooling by adding a 120mm fan angled right above the memory sticks blowing into the cpu cooler and now my load temps are around 65C in orthos as reported by TAT/Coretemp.

I also added 2x1GB of DDR2 RAM making a total of 3GB.

Is my overclock good? My temps at the moment are (reported by coretemp/tat:

Idle ~33C
Load ~65C
~1.43V steady

I'm also on the xtremesystems core 2 duo overclock database. http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=12...

You thought of everything except ambient and Idle temps. Your cores are at ideal temps, but it looks like the CPU temp is 80c, which is +25c offset. Check out the Core 2 Duo Temperature Guide.

Hope this helps,
