  1. Is that your idle temp?
  2. hey mate. what heatsink are you using, if you are using the intel one then i would recommend getting a better one something like the noctua NH-U12P for like $100. That usually offers some fantastic heat diffusion when on full loadout, even when clocked to 4GHz you will get about 60 - 70 degrees outa this thing. Anyway it seems like you are using stock cooler and i recommend going no further than OCing to 3.2GHz. To do so just bump your bclk up to around 150/160 leave everything on auto and it should run very stable. although if you want to lower your voltage you can down it to about 1.125v. I would leave speed step on in this situation just to allow the cpu to run at a lower temp. between big jobs until you get a heatsink.

    good luck. post anything else you are having problems with.
