you should be alright with that since you will almost never hit 100% in practice

Temps are a bit warm. When things start getting close to 60c with phenom it's time to back it off a bit frown.gif Maybe try some better fans on your H50? If your using the stock one it's not that great.

Yea with the H50 if you're using stock fans get some new ones, also what TIM are you using? You are so close with a few cheap tweaks this would be a 100% safe overclock.

I had 2 fans on it and it had been around 28c so im going to put the 2nd one back on. Or Try to drop the vcore a bit. I'm hoping this is a decent overclock for my first time actually using fsb and voltage etc confused.gifbiggrin.gif

cool.gif You've got a nice chip there, it's pretty close to that same OC potential as mine if you include my lower bin.

As far as an overclock goes there is no reason to go beyond what you're at, it's a lot more power and heat for a performance difference you wont even notice. I would says drop .1 GHz add that fan and you're 24/7 ready.

It's a very good overclock biggrin.gif Don't bother changing the stock paste if you haven't already as they ship with very good shinetzu paste on them.

i have the antec 900 2 stock on the back and the corsair had been up front but i took it off so i could have a little more wiggle room by the p4 plug. im not super happy with 2 different fans, but tomorrow is payday so some matching 120's will be on the way. im using the stock pad, which i had read was supposed to be actually top notch. i cant recall the name off the top of my head. a real wc system is in the planning stage.
