System Overclock.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well! I finally finished building my PC. System specs are below in my signature. I'm using a H70 CPU cooler and got it overclocked to 4.5 ghz. Idle at ~30c and on load it gets up to about ~60c. Is that normal?? should i shoot for 5ghz?

You're fine. Do you have HT on? If so, don't go for 5ghz because you're probably not going to be able to keep it that way.
