I've been good with all my games as my 555 unlocked to a quad with no trouble, until i encountered StarCraft II (aka my new fav. game) being that the game only uses 2 cores. So instead of using all that wattage to run my CPU as a quad, i've been thinking of bumping back down to 2 cores and seeing if i can hit 3.6-4.0Ghz.
The thing is, i do know my CPU has an unlocked multiplier... so that should make things easier, right? My RAM is standard, straight out of the Hewlett Packard PC that begun this journey. . . So i don't want to have to mess with memory timings or any of that.
I'm also on air, with the stock AMD cooler at the moment. However it does stay cool in my room, even though HW Monitor reads my CPU at 23Âºc idle and 49Âºc load, does that give me much headroom?
Sorry i know i sound like a total noob right now, but Rep+ to the people who do take the time out of their night and help me!
