I mean it's only a 0.5GHz overclock and that should be a breeze on a 45nm processor. conquerz April 18, 2008 11:19:49 PM Maroc said:Well I'm assuming it will be able to achieve that quite easily even with the stock cooler.

Been wanting to try this but wasn't sure if it would be safe since never overclocked before and don't want to add anything to my system yet cos I just got it!
