i overclocked it from 3.1 ghz to 3.7ghz stable running prime95 on a fan cooler at 54 degrees C or 129 degree F i just wanted to know if this was good i can get it to 3.8 but BSOD while testing with prime95
That is a nice OC... not the furthest you might be able to push things, assuming that you could find a way to get the cooling situation a bit more ideal. Those temps aren't bad, but having a bit of history with Athlon chips, I don't think I'd consider temps ideal either. What specific model cooler are you using? Do you have the case and cooler fans running at 100%, or are they set to vary dependent on temps?
