whats the exact brand and model of your MB? Gigabyte? MSI?...etc

as for your question, most non OC CPUs have an ideal core temp of 33C and a full load temp of 45-55C depending on the load app
it is actually installed on a BIOSTAR G31D-M7
but am wondering whether to switch to my other board
GIGABYTE G31M-ES2L

so i have E5300, arctic pro 7 cooler, GTS 250, 4GB ddr2-800 ram but temps at 39C according to post on mobo

i know neither of these boards are great, but they were the cheaper options

if anyone can recommend a better board that is not going to cost me a fortune then i welcome any suggestions

if your CPU's ideal temp is 39 then you may need to readjust your CPU cooler and reapply thermal paste,

as for the MB, you can buy the same MB that i do ($60), but its only good for overclocking low end wolfdales (800FSB CPUs) or buy a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L/R ($90) which is great for overclocking high end wolfdales and quad cores + it has PCI-E 2.0 so its more future proof than what i have

It seems that 3.8Ghz is the sweet spot.
I was able to get to 3.9Ghz.
But when I ran IBT, my Gflops were crazy low.
Upped the voltage and was the same result.

444Mhz isn't much of an overclock over 400Mhz, if your DRAM is not stable @ 444 just up a the DRAM voltage by +0.1v or +0.2v

Hey Omari, thanks for the response! I managed to overclock to 3 ghz
Turns out I was doing more than necessary.
Also, on the first page of this thread where it says "Bios CPU v: 1.30" under Example A, does that mean I have to adjust the voltage to 1.3 in the bios? And my stock cooler will probably be sufficient, right?

I highly doubt you need 1.3V's for 3Ghz.
I think you could get away with stock volts.

I ran my stock cooler up till 3.7Ghz.
Check a few pages back for my results

@Omari.
Is there a reason why my CPU is slow as anything @ 3.9Ghz?
3.8Ghz seems to be the sweet spot.
