First time overclocking need help! - Page 3

post #21 of 26
Thread Starter 
I appologies for all my questions, just trying to learn...

On AMD's web-site it says:
Temp: 55-70 C
Voltage: 1.30/1.35V

Does that mean that I must stay between these parameters? Most guides say to keep the temperature below 50C

Try to stay away from the 60c range under load and you will be fine.

What is your temperature after OC? Should I be between 55-70 or I can even be lower than 50?

at 2.5ghz 1.32v I am sitting at 32c idle 48-49c load on orthos after 30min then holds at 48-49c for 16+hrs. If it's hot outside and I mean 85f+ you can add 2c to the #'s above at idle and 1c to the load temps, but no humidity here high desert= dry and hot.
