  1. What should you do? Be very happy that you have a cheap system that runs past 4 GHz.

    Intel's upper thermal limit for the Wolfdale CPU's is a little over 70 C, so 50 C is good.

    If you are using the stock cooler, get a better one.

    As i have already said i have a thermal right i90(cooler).which mobo would you recommend to overclock higher then this?
  3. Oops. I missed the cooler. :(

    You are either close to or at the limits of the CPU. A better motherboard would not be worth the cost.

    My E7500 cannot run higher than 4.11 GHz. It is 24 hour Prime95 stable though.
  4. very nice oc.
    great job, its just enough or as stated bu jsc, the cpu might be at its limit
