Playing graw for 15 min i got this

Should i play assassins creed for a bit and tell you the temps then too? Or is there something else i should do?

Nice Vid... I expect good oc'ing ability with that... Around 3.5ish...

Temps are meh... but thats your stock cooler talking...

For now.. stick with around 3.2ghz, anything higher then get your water cooling ( I know you're getting that soon) I think at around 1.300 you'd be fine to get to 3.2ghz

EDIT: you know.. stick with 3.0ghz as I said on MSN messenger

Default Re: going to try to oc my cpu for the first time

bios load temps
cpu: 31c
mb:33c

Vcore 1.160v

I'm going to up it to 333fsb and stress test now.


EDIT: ok, need a quick answer if possible. I want to up the fsb but i can't go to the option under cpu configuration. It's lighter. How do i change it?

ok, i called the asus hotline (which i went threw people which were very hard to understand) and i had to change the ai thing under the jumperfree configuration (or something like that) i put her up to 333fsb and am stress testing now (started 30mins ago...on laptop now) when i left the cpu was at 51c.

What is the higest temps i should get in gaming that are safe? because at stock clock i got make 50c and 34c idle so i think i'll be around 65c during gaming or as high as 70c, is that ok for gaming?
