Well, generally the rule with overclocking and cool and quiet is that you would turn it off before hand. Unfortunately it's been awhile since I've OC'd anything but a black edition. So you can check out this if you want:,2452-4...
Did you get yourself an aftermarket heatsink and fan or are you using the stock?

im on stock HSF

i would rather undervolt the CPU but my mobo doesnt seem to have the option (or i can;t find it)

so i want to underclock it instead, but it is conflicting with CnQ. the CPU wont' automatically change to underclock the CPU when idle in windows. so the CPU ends up using more watts instead.....
