Thread Starter 
Here is my screenshot:


These are my validations for my cpu and gpu,

Cpu: http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=340833

Gpu: http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/hewgp/


I run these clocks 24/7 and they are stable, your opinions or any suggestions would be nice!!

Personally, I'm liking it, but the temps are looking like they could be inaccurate. The only reason I say this is because Core 0 is 47 and Core 1 is 57. That's weird to me, but then again, I'm very inexperienced.

But try other programs. My personal recommendation is CPUID's Hardware Monitor. The reason I recommend it is because for my e2180, the temps it shows make much more sense than the temps shown by Core Temp. The temps Hardware Monitor shows pretty much match what my BIOS's System Monitor displays. They're generally about 15 degrees higher than Core Temp. It personally makes much more sense to me to err on the high side anyway. This could be true for you too, so I say give it a quick shot.

Wow, color me fascinated. Both the cores are running at completely different temps and nobody is flinching. I think I'm learning something.

Based on the responses so far, I would say that it must mean that it's perfectly acceptable, and possibly normal with this cpu. I mean, I see nobody commenting about the temps, so they must be saying "you have good temps too". But I don't know. Maybe these people are complete morons! Oh come on, you know I'm kidding!

See if you can hit 4.0GHz. hehehe That would be insane! Your computer must be flying at 3.5GHz. And I forgot to say that this would be the kind of overclock I'd want. That's a 1.5GHz jump so far, so nice work so far.
