this definately. watch your heat. you wont need moar voltage to get stable than you can put in without overheating. so i think what others in the thread were trying to say is just use a standard overclocking approach and you should be fine. if your chip isnt getting too hot, your not damaging it. look up the specs/other threads once you know the exact chip youre dealing with to find out how hot is too hot.

Thanks for the help guys - so used CPU-Z to confirm, it is a Pentium D 925 (3 GHz)....however I found out my idle CPU temp is 55C! :O

I asked the previous owner about the cooler he put on (not a tower cooler, but a fan surrounded by a ring of heatsink)...and as I suspected, he used NO thermal paste (EDIT: He may have, but isn't sure - I still doubt it). Ouch. Also, it only has one fan for the case as he somewhat stripped it to build his younger brother's computer.

I have some thermal paste lying around but I think I'll pick up a cheap Hyper 212. By the way, any idea on the supposed max temperature for these? The intel site says TCase = 63.4 C, but I don't think that's the temperature I should be looking for..?

EDIT: AIDA64 trial found similar CPU temperatures....I hit over 70s while in Windows, haven't watched any videos or played any games...

EDIT: Seems to be a general issue that CPUTIN is a "glitchy" measurement in many cases - since I am running a Pentium D 925, however, there are NO core measurements (no sensors). Is there any simple way to keep an eye on temperatures for overclocking?
