Just started overclocking my new build and it's crazy fast - but I'm worried something might happen to it.
Last I checked in the BIOS, the CPU temp was at a comfortable 34 - 38 degrees Celsius. However, it seems hard to believe I can continously run at 4.2 GHz on my CPU and keep it intact.
Yeah agreed Mansfield. You should definitely use Intel Burn In Test for stress testing. You MUST do this. And also use a program called Core Temp for your temps. And use CPU Z to verify your overclock and for system specs. This is a MUST for overclocking. No one who has every OCed they're CPU did not use these programs. Gotta do it or it's not a stable overclock or at least you'll never know.
