I have it OC'ed to 3.6 right now. Are my temps good? It idles at around 40-50(Core 1,2) and 30-35(Core 3,4)

Be careful, watch your temps, and make sure your residual values are the same.

Also, do maximum test, about 25-30 runs.

It wont run, it keeps saying I fail Linpack or something

OP, stick with Prime95 and coretemp, you don't want to risk breaking something with Intel Burn Test.

I fail the Linpack Test anyway so it doesn't matter

Usually means you can't do maximum stress. Try defining how much ram you use to stress. IntelBurnTest is a great quick way to test an OC, both temps and stability. 10 runs is plenty.

I've lapped all my CPU's and had a varying degree of success. Sometimes I've gotten as little as 3C and sometimes I get 10C difference. Might be worth it if temperature difference between the cores is really high (ie 10C+)

Yeah one core is 30 idle while the other is 45 idle at the same time

Yeah, Alright I've decided, I'm going to stay @ 3.4, Idle temps are way too high, and Prime 95 temps are insane. Thanks for the help everybody

Re-seat the HSF. I LOAD FULL 100% at about 48C or so. Those temps are too high. Maybe even change or add some fans???

But your only @ 2.8GHz. I get the same temps as you @ 3Ghz
