Check post 3 to a how to set it at aplication launch. http://www.sharkyforums.com/showthread.php?t=279144

But quite frankly with the proper dual core patch for the OS there is no need to do that anymore unless you are doing something very specific.

Ok, runing @ 3GHz with 2.5 on ram. Voltage 1.35, with +0.4V on ram (tightened the timings to 4-4-4-12). Idle temps in low 50C, under load 68-70C. 6 hour orthos stable. Trying to think what else I can do to lower them.

Cyant: I don't recall installing any patches on my OS, I just installed the basic mobo drivers and did a HD format.
