1st rule-Use the BIOS for overclocking not any software.

There is nothing when it comes to overclocking as a average temperature, its full load thats interesting!Go Burn your cpu under some benchmark or so and show us the full load temperature so we can see what we can work with.

I agree with you but sometimes you are limited and got to work with whatever tools u got. I have never used anything else then bios and im so old so when we started overclocking we used only the jumpers on the mobo :O

Kaitlin first of all download a program to find out your highest load temperature, ok then we take it from there!
