THANKS guys I'm pretty happy. Went to 2.95 ghz and it runs at 52 c on full load.
My Aquamark score went from 137,058 stock to 164,788 at 2.9 and I have not even tried tinkering with the CPU overclock more or even touched overclocking the video card yet!
What CPU cooler do you currently own and what are is your vcore?
EDIT: Ahh, I see your just edited your post.
Yeah, don't leave the vcore on auto. ^^
