Down Load and Run Core Temp, and list the VID of your Processor here, please? Since I haven't seen ya around! I hope its an OEM chip! Retail will more than likely be 1.3000 or higher, the worse ones, and that decides your starting voltage.
Knowing that decides your needed voltage for a given speed.
Where did you wanna over clock it to?
What type of cooling do you have, and if you would, please list the other components, like Vid card, Power supply, etc.
