When i overclock i don't go over 63+c load because i feel that's to hot. Others will say different, but go with what your comfortable at. Just keep trying to you hit that sweet spot.
I gave it a go at 3.4 with vcore at 1.40 and got a BSOD as soon as Prime95 started. I then upped the vcore to 1.425 and Prime95 ran for about 45min then errored. The problem is my temps maxed out at 62c. I'm sure I could raise the vcore a little more and run stable but temps are getting a little too high for comfort. I think I'll chill at 3.2 until I get a cooler. Regardless, my 3dmark score increased pretty good. Stats:
OC'd 5600 X2 Brisbane @ 3.156Ghz = 11,500
OC'd 720BE @ 3.220Ghz = 15,200
My ultimate goal was to play GTAIV smoothly. I went from 20-30FPS with occasional glitches to 35-45FPS and smooth at highest settings. (except texture at medium) My video card with only 512mb memory is holding me back from running at high everything but I'm happy. Unfortunately my mobo doesn't have ACC so no unlocking the fourth core.
