Well make sure to thoroughly, and I mean THOROUGHLY read that sticky up at the top regarding basics of OC'ing. Once you've done that and understand it, make yourself completely familiar with your BIOS layout so whenever you may have a question and we tell you what you need to change you'd know where to go.

Also make sure your BIOS has all the adequate options TO overclock otherwise you don't really have that much room to OC.

To answer your temp question though, it's simply that some CPU's run hotter, some people may have little to no system fans, the room temperature, things like that all play a role.

My old 2400+ XP was hitting 64C idle, until I got better cooling it hit a whopping 55C idle god knows what it hit on load.

With my XP-M I'm in the 30's plus I OC it.

EDIT: Oh yeah with your temps you have plenty of room to OC assuming your board has adequate options.

Trust me man I'm far from rich. I'm still on Socket A

But I've put a good chunk of money in this system but that's over the course of months not over night.

But yeah, my room is regularly at 70-75F which makes quite a difference in temp compared to say 68C.

The colder the room air, the colder the air being sucked in and pushed in the system is.

I wouldent worry all that much about temps. It dont take much to drop your temps, but it also dont take much to raise your temps. Since your house is cold, then that works out better for you. Personally, once my system is finished, im leaving my window open a little in winter. Then in summer im going to do my best keeping it cool. Who knows, i might even have to low my OC settings in summer.

Since you dont have much money, and since your young. Its not going to be easy making money. OC dont take much money, but it does include some. Your going to need to get a few fans, and a new heatsink/cpu fan. Around 125$ you could be well on your way for some OC.
