Phenom II 940 BE Overclock

So I have recently made myself a new rig, and the last piece of the puzzle was added last week. My new Antec 300 case.

My question: Is this overclock ok? My core temperatures are stable between 51.5 and 53 degrees Celsius
Or am I pushing my Phenom 940 to far on air? Please leave any ideas/suggestions.

  1. I think so; the only time I starting worrying about CPU (and core) temps is when they go above 70C. How are those stability tests?

    well i run the science apps seti@home and einstein@home 24/7. and at 3.4ghz the system is absolutely stable with coretemps at 50.5-52 C. can anyone advise me on the proper voltage required for a 3.5 ghz overclock on my CPU? i tried setting it to 1.375 volts on AMD Overdrive, it ran for like 20 minutes before giving me BSOD (so obviously it was unstable) i haven't tried pushing it since.
  3. ummm i have found the HT has issues when the multiplier id set to .5 eg 17.5
