Hi Guys,

Just new to over clocking so i went ahead and O.C the CPU. got 4.8 ran it for a while and it seems pretty stable no crashes.
Just want to know if anyone can suggest anything other changes that need to be made to make it run cooler?
i have a cooler master v8 cooler/

though once in a while i get a message, windows not responding but windows didnt crash nor did i get a BSOD.

so yeah something is not 100% with this over clock.

You're running much too hot. Either back down on the overclock or upgrade your CPU cooler. You should really keep it under 90C max, 80C would be better.

That is way too many volts for that speed. You should be closer to 1.2V for 4.2, maybe even less. Turn down the volts immediately. Those temps are also much, much too high - you need to check your cooler and make sure it is seated properly and that the fans are running at normal speeds.

That screen shot is weird, i will post up a new one. yeah after reading some more i noticed that my volts were off the roof i will try tweaking it tonight and i will keep u guys posted.
hope i can achieve a stable 4.8ghz, i know i can stable a 4.7 easily with around 1.3 v ? not sure if this is the volts i should be seeing though
