Those temps are fine..

For "safe" 24/7 usage:

Keep your core temperatures under 75C at all time..

Keep your Vcore under 1.40V (LOAD) at all time..

CHEERS..

Those temps are normal..

If your CPU cooler is hooked up to a fan header on the board be sure to disable speedfan in your bios so it runs the fan at 100%...

The temps & voltage above are the correct max limits

Well, 1.45 is Intel's spec limits but I consider that conservative

I do think Kings setting are good safe guidelines.

Hey guys!

I'm back(ish). Did you mis me?
I had some computer problems earlier on and I flash my BIOS, removing my OC... Since I've been out of the game for a while can you guys help me? I'm already at 3.4Ghz with 1v vcore.

I want to get it back at atleased 4Ghz or my old 4.4Ghz.

Big help here guys for a small problem. It's the newbiest thing ever, but i can figure out which pins are which? ive found the front USB connection need to find the reset, power, hdd led and cpu led and whatever is left. got some pictures if you guys could just point them out to me that would be great thanks
Also: the HD audio connection is in the most annoying spot ever!!

quick replies please, want to get my rig back up and running

I am assuming that you don't have the book that came with the mobo?

If you look real closely, they printed the header connections on the board, just below the header.

But here is an attached layout for you, courtesy of the link below.

Oh ok for some reason my friend told me nothing over 65C anything after that is not safe but i'll take your word for it!

Nah... Intel Spec lists it as 72c. But when you consider they set the Tjmax to 100c, thats the tempeture the cpu will force itself to lower the multiplier and voltage to prevent damage from overheating...

Now if the cpu was going to be damaged at say 75c, I would think Intel would lower the Tjmax and thermal shutdown....


But to me safe, try and stay under 70c. Unless your real unlucky, or have a warm room you should have a problem. 9550/9650's tend to hit 4.0 without getting too hot..

I go with 1.40 as a safe voltage limit because of vcc overshoot... But I doubt you will need much past 1.35 - 1.375v for 4.0
