Have you tried lowing the voltage at all? | Report abuse mc_conor October 20, 2011 1:52:28 PM Yea spent about a week testing this is the lowest i can go to without a manual voltage; which i do not want as i like the speed step technology. Do you think i should reduce my OC as the temps are too hot? I won't be folding or anything I'll just be playing games and working on it. | Report abuse Cygnus x-1 CPUs Expert October 20, 2011 2:03:25 PM You can game on it at 60c, it won't hurt it.

A few hours at the most i'd be gaming for a day. usually one or two every day or so.
