well the way I see it....is that this chip (which oddly enough my moms laptop contains the 2400+ XP-M) reaches atleast in the 50's when it's sitting in a laptop. This thing pumps out some hot *** air when my friend plays a game on it (I'm referring to this laptop not my computer in the sig below) so I figure you keep it below 60 mainly preferably below 55 and you should be good. Mines also at 12x200 currently but I have a vcore of 1.85 I just updated my BIOS so perhaps I can turn it down because it's running prime95 with absolutely no problems. I have INSANE cooling though so thats why I have lower temps even though your Vcore is lower than mine.

9 case fans
2 PSU Fans
1 - 80mm Tornado for the CPU

combined with an SLk-900A lapped heatsink and AS5

I would say that the 58C at full load would scare me. You gotta figure it'll be hitting that playing games like doom because your graphics card will also be getting hot and putting that hot air into the mix. What kind of cooling do you have? If you have stock those temps seem about right, but I'd REALLY suggest you get a better heatsink and atleast some AS5 especially for overclocking.
Having the vantec tornado helps too but is extremely loud. Even with all the fans I have including 2 of them being blower style duct fans, it's the most predominate sound you hear in my case.

That's the one And dude......if you got 5.....psht...you'd hear it across the house trust me it is NOT even worth the 'cooling possibilities' with 5 of those running. They are pretty power hungry at 9w and like I said are extremely loud. It's a 5700RPM fan and it'd read 6000RPM for me and now I keep it at about 4000 and still you hear that fan over any other one in the case so a fan controller is kinda recommended. the Sunbeam Rheobus if you wind up getting one. I just ran into an error in prime95 after about an error too and that was at 12x200 = 2.4GHz, I just changed it to 11.5x215 and now testing my RAM for errors so I'm at like 2.45 and then I'll run prime95 again. but you gotta realize prime95 is INTENSE and most applications will never make your CPU crunch millions of numbers like that. So if you can get it to an hour 2 hours prime95 stable on the large scale test then you should be able to play your games with no probs.

I just did aquamark03 with 12x200 = 2.4GHz and my Fx 5700 at 300/500 and got 23,900 and man after I changed it to 11.5x215 = 2.465 GHz and changed my FX5700 to 520/570 I think it's at I got 28,000 better increase than I had last time i tried OC'ing the card in my last system. Gonna try and push it more, but I also think I'm going to remove my GFX heatsink and atleast put some AS5 under it

lol good luck...can I have your extra fans I wonder if I can make a square box somewhat like on xoxide.com and just make everywall a fan...use 120mm fans and use 4 of them, 2x2 sto make a wall and just build your PC inside that...hmmmm I just might be crazy enough to do it....
