temps are fine....personally I'm fine with 75-80s during full load on a 65nm core 2 chip. During normal use and gaming the temps will not climb as high.

ok sorry... i didnt actually look at the pic that close... i just saw the temps and thoguht they were idles... they're full loads, so thats actually a really nice result... you can crank that thing a bit further, but because of its VID, you'll have to start pumpin the voltage pretty soon

What should my memory settings be?

When i set the cpu freq to 333 the bios auto set my ram to 1333
I manually changed it back to 1066, should I have left it?

I didn't really understand the ram part of the guide.
