Well that motherboard isn't really meant to be overclocked on. But what programs are you using, and what are these weird readings?

80c is really too hot.

those aren't weird readings, they are telling you that you have oc'd too far for your current heatsink.

in order to overclock well, you need to have a decent CPU cooler. on a tight budget, here is my recommendation for small cases, but if you have a larger mid tower or full tower case, then this is what i recommend.

until then, drop your cpu back to stock to avoid burning the thing up. frankly, i'm surprised you didn't do so already, trying to OC on the stock heatsink.

in any case, get the cooler, install it, and overclock, and be merry.

Firstly, Thank you for your responce, much appreciated!! Funny thing is, when ive reverted back to the original settings i get virtualy the same reading's..?? Would a core 2 duo stock fan ( which look's identical to me ) have a better cooling effect??

Also, i have run Orthos blend cpu ram test thingy for 8 hours or so @ 2.77, until i stop it and it didnt cut out ( don't know if that means it was ok or not as they recommend 24 hrs )

Oh and i came across a temperature table, its say's 67-85c is normal ???????? ( any ideas )

Chekone, I wouldn't say it's "normal" as much as it is "Acceptable". The typical 'threshold' is 90*C for a CPU. You want to stay as far below that number as you can.

For example, I am currently O.C.'ing my processor to 4.6GHz (an increase of 1.3GHz) and I'm only at 60*C at full CPU load. I'm using a liquid cooling solution to achieve this. This tell me that I am safe to push my CPU (at maximum) another 30*C which might get me to 5.5GHz (the scaling isn't an exact science), however I don't feel safe past 80*C (a probable 5.2GHz).

Any stock cooler isn't going to cut it, really. It will work somewhat, but even if you stay with air cooling, you'll want to upgrade the heat sink. Otherwise I wouldn't expect your CPU to last very long.

Thank you for advising me aswell on this issue.. I will definately upgrade my heatsink & fan... I have a small case and board, do you have any other suggestions on what kind of air cooling would be sufficient??
