Its not your Tempretures of the CPU that matter its the VRM's on the Motherboard that matter

Yours are either 3+1 or 4+1 which is a no go for setting your Athlon to 1.55V - I have just ordered a Motherboard thats a 8+1 which means its a beast to overclock with


But if you set your Athlon to 1.55V with a 3+1 or a 4+1 you will probably set the VRMs on fire.

But if your Tempretures are in the Green Zone then thats Good but I would consider getting this board

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110692761430&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT#ht_500wt_1156

Since your Athlon is AM3 It should fit nicely - And that board is a 8+1 Power Phase so you shoudnt have to worry about a fire smile.gif
