The easy mode will only take you to about 320 fsb. If you go into your Advance mode you set your CPU FSB to much higher rate. 429 fsb = 3.0 Mhz. And you not worried about temps? 50c? @ 2.2 ghz? ummm i would be you go any higher you will hit 60c very quick and thats not good. a $45 part will save you 20c, also get arctic silver 5 thermal compound.
I'm using advanced mode and I know quite a bit about computers, I recently switched from computer engineering to the IT field because I suck at math.
Anyway, no, I'm not even close to being worried about 49Âº at 2.275. Even if it maxed at 60 it wouldn't bother me that much. Chips can handle 60Âº, now if it was 70Âº we would have a problem. And I have AS5 applied already, also on my north bridge since they do a crappy job with that.
