New mobo/cpu: normal readings?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just installed an ASUS P5B mobo with Core 2 Duo e7200. Sitting idle:

CPU: 41 C
Core voltage: 1.032 V

Are these normal? I'm new at this, and the BIOS was giving me a message earlier about the cpu voltage being too high.

I don't know. I have yet to do anything to it since the voltage message was scaring me. Every setting in the BIOS is set to auto tho.

So, under 100% load on both cores, it drops from 1.032 to 1.024 volts and goes to 50C as reported by Core Temp. Normal? Can I begin overclocking the FSB from 266 MHz to 333 MHz now? Any tips?
