  1. ah trust me when i say this, 1 heat sync dosent make the overclock better than the other, 1 is probaly better but

    A)yes
    B)if you monitor your temps closely, your TCASE is 67C so try to stay below that

    C)you can try using intels turbo boost
  2. Sure, you can, but really watch those temps. I see you have a D0 920. It deserves a nice cooler, so imo get one and OC it to 4ghz :)
  3. I will most certainly give that a shot guys thank you very much!!! :)
  4. So far got a stable 3197 Mhz without going above 52C!!!! Ty guys :)
