hello..i try OC my pc @ 3.7GHz for the first time and actually i dont know much about OC..my pc spec :

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2
i7 920 @ 3.7 GHz
GeForce GTX 285 x 2
Triple Kit Kingston DDR3 1600 6GB
WD Caviar Black 1TB
Corsair 850W
Thermalright Ultra Extreme 120
Thermalright Chill Factor Thermal Paste
Fan : 1 Front 1 Rear 1 Side and 1 Top (12cm fan)
CM Storm Tactics Casing

My BIOS Setting :
AI Tweaker : Manual
CPU ratio : Auto
Speedstep : Disabled
Turbo : Disabled
BCLK Freq : 186
PCIE Freq : 100
Dram Freq : DDR3/1491
CPU Voltage : 1.27500
CPU PLL Voltage : 1.96
QPI/DRam Core Voltage : 1.275
DRam Bus Voltage : 1.64
CPU Diff Amplitude : 800MV
Others : Auto

i'm following the setting from one of the user here : Gatorbill
and the result when running Prime95 test (for only 10 minutes):


i wanna ask..is all this value(especially the temperature) normal for OC at 3.7GHz ?
and also is the BIOS setting stable & ok?


can i get down the temperature below 70C or 70C-75C ?

any comments and suggestion?

sorry for my english..

Those temps are normal for typical i7. If you want lower temps the quickest way is to turn off Hyperthreading. It will drop it 5C-10C.

There should be an option in your BIOS to do this. I don't have your board so I can't really help you with exactly the steps. Look for something along the line of Advanced --> CPU Configuration. You should see an option for Hyperthreading.
