In order to get mine to 3.6GHz. I have to run at least 1.55 Vcore and my temps are in the high 50's.
Also what are you using for a GPU cooler to get that high of an overclock on your video card you must be using some after market cooling!
Also, what are you using for a fan with that Red Shock?
I run TAT, SpeedFan & Core Temp. They all give the same or very similiar temps
I must have got the luck of the draw. I'm definitely running 1.4125 in Bios, 450FSB x 8 and the temps never go above 52c with dual prime load. They reach 55-60 using the TAT test but that is insane stress
I'm using stock cooler on the X1950XTX, its a monster cooler and extremely effective. idles at 35c load 60c
I've got the Vantec Tornado 92mm (120cfm) on the Redshock and then directly in line with the CPU is a powerful case fan forcing cool air into the cpu fan........very effective.......27-30 idle, 52 4 hour dual prime
I've got AS5 applied to both GPU & CPU
