Well my processor is intel core i7 930 overclocked to 3.36ghz.

I was wondering if that is good? and if it will be fine for a long time? and if it's possible to get above 3.36ghz and how?

main question is if it's good enough for now?

There are people running @ 4Ghz. So what you got is a mild OC.
If it's good enough for you, then sure. & it's deff possible to get over 3.36.

Here is a guide for you.

Oh and fill out your system specs.

I need more information to determine if that is sustainable. Could you please provide more information? Voltages, temps, etc.

But yes, assuming you got there the right way, 3.36ghz should definitely be safe.

It's an alienware (flame for later) so it has liquid cooled Cpu.

I'll post a pic of cpu-z in a little.
