Sweeeet. I overclocked the multipler to 18x, got the GHz from 3.1 to 3.6ghz. My vista score went up from 5.6 to 5.8 XD. My CPU temp is 42-44c with no game play, not sure what it will go up to during game play. Disabling that cool & quiet worked, now do i attempt to get to 3.9ghz...ponders. I just don't want to mess with the voltage
It is possible to reach 3.9 on a good cooler however for the 550 from what i have seen 3.6/3.7 is the sweet spot make sure you test the system and check the temps under heavy load as well,glad i could help.
