Just got a Q9450 up to 3.4 ghz. Have 6+ hours stable of PRIME's blend tests at 1.36 voltage. The Smaller FFTs get it to 75 degrees on the hottest core, but otherwise is ~66 on hot, 62 on others. Never gets above 66 playing Crysis 2, Company of Heroes, or BC 2.
Should be fine right? Suppose I could back it down, or get an 80 dollar cooler.
