i7-950 to 4Ghz+ ? Advice for newbie?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I very recently came from a Q6600, HP system never overclocked and I do not miss it! So already this new system smokes the old one!

Of course I want to get the most of my new processor!
Could anyone recommend recommend some simple guidelines for me to get started with this and get the most of this system? I have not seen CPU's get past 46 c, using Core Temp 0.99.7.3 64 bit.
Need I worry much about jeopardizing the health of the chip or system by going at 4Ghz?
