Default Re: New to overclocking...Please help! 70, you're pushing it as is. Many systems shut down around 80 to 90, so you may be able to squeeze a little more performance out of it, but wow, it's running pretty hot already. How is this thing cooled? You might want to add some more fans or something if it's running at 70C.
