Everything looks fine from this end, but if you want further assistance, please fill in your system specs on the UserCP.

As Panic has suggested, please fill in your system specs by clicking here and filling in as much information as you know.

I would assume you're stable at those values, but I can't imagine you're getting great performance from it. Again, we'll be able to advise you better once you fill in your system specs, but at first glance your DDR2 speeds look very slow for such loose timings. I also think you can get more from your CPU than 2.4GHz on that voltage. My old E2180 reached 3.1GHz on that same voltage.

What program(s) are you using to test for stability? For a dual core, Orthos would probably be the easiest stress test program for a beginner. You can also try Prime95, just make sure you run two threads if you use Prime95.

ran trough orthos and it had a peak of 64 degrees at one point
got all the way to :
1:
Test 6, 11000 Lucas-Lehmer iterations of M7077887 using 384K FFT length.
2:Self-test 384K passed!

"but at first glance your DDR2 speeds look very slow for such loose timings"
could you elaborate more on how i can determine if it's too slow and how/where i could adjust it?
I figure it's got some connection with the timing , it was set at 2.5 and i changed it to 2.0 to see how that worked and currently testing it
