  1. I think you can do it.
  2. first i would like to thank you for replying
    second anybody knows what the temps well be because i was thinking to buy liquid cooling but unfortunally my case dosent support that
  3. The settings I used to get a 24/7 oc with my I7 920 dO

    For a overclock to 3.5ghz on a i7 930 the cm v8 is a great cooler so u would not be needing liqued cooling

    And the safe temps for your CPU on load should no be more than 72c under prime 95 that is
  5. 72.x is the max tcase temp, from Intel.
    If you can avoid it, I like to keep the cores out of the 80's.
