Hey guys, I have my e6850 running at 35 degrees Celsius in idle. It's clocked at 3.2 Ghz. Is that a stable over clock? If you need my PC specs please ask.

Also, I don't really see a speed difference, is that weird or did I do something wrong?

No one can say whether it is stable or not as it depends on how well manufacturing went. The only way to know is to run some CPU and RAM stress tests.

Check the OC guide, Run prime's small test for 8 hours with no errors = stable

just run prime with small ffts for 8hours for normal use or 24 hours for the ultimate stable 24/7 operation.but from your overclock it should be stable.because 15% overclock from stock speed is fine for most Intel Core 2 processor.let me know how it go.

Make sure your ram is stable too by running Prime95 blend test for at least 12hours.

I got my ram to pass Prime for 15hours but it turned out to be unstable, so the longer you run it, the better.
