2933 MHz / 133 MHz BCLK = 22 multiplier

If you are overclocking, the extra MHz from the 22 multiplier when lightly loaded can cause instability. Many users with these CPUs never realized what was causing their instability so they usually disabled the C States to avoid this problem. With the C States enabled, you might have to bump the core voltage up a little to avoid light load crashes but that will increase your temps when fully loaded.

Your present core temperatures look about right considering the C States are disabled and you are using the Windows High Performance power profile.

I don't some tweaking and so far I am running mid 34-38 area that is better then before. All seems stable to far. I try to keep my multiplier at 20 or 21. I think this is as high as I can raise it anyways in the bios.
Thanks for the help!
