Hey there, long time reader, 1st time poster

Ive changed the stock cooler with a Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo

I've decided to overclock my CPU, & have successfully upped it to 3.6 & its stable, running 1.440v, temperatures run up to 60 Degree's when using IBT which im happy with so far with no problems

Problems so far is that i cant get any more out of it with just changing the multiplier, tried to change the CPU Bus Speed but that only produced more heat & now ive hit a brick wall

Any help or advice pointers would be greatly appreciated

id actually leave the overclock where you're at now. 60C is getting close to your CPU's thermal limits of 62C although your voltages can be pushed just a little higher.

1.440v at 3.6? that's only a 400mhz OC, you shouldn't have to push the voltage that high.
