Default Overclocking question.

Hey, I over clocked my 3500 from 2.2 to 2.4.

First off, I am supposed to raise the voltage, correct?

I raised it based on a tutorial I found for an ASUS board and this processor, but I am using an ECS board. Should the CPU voltage be different, or is it the same for different boards?

The overclock is running great, everything is nice and cool (38C) and there is no system instability. Does this sound like a good overclock?

Thanks,
Dex

You only raise the voltage if it become's unstable,I highly doubt you would have to up it with a 200mhz jump.

Okay, set it to default voltage, no problems at all. Thanks for the help!
Still getting a cool 46C in Counterstrike Source on max settings, so I think this overclock is good to go. Again, thanks!
