yeah you should go off cpu-z and monitor the temperatture. it will let you know real quick if it is getting too hot.

ok so i'm at about 63-65C after running Small FFTs in Prime95 for 1 hour. I'm running 3.2 GHz at 1.352.

It's weird though, i have speedstep turned off, but when my comp is in idle i run at 2.4 GHz and the voltage actually goes up to 1.384. Anyone know what's up with that?

yes look for a setting "C1EST". disable it and that will stop.

sweet, i found it and turned it off. my voltages still change and lower under a full load, i'm guess that's normal.

thanks for the help guys.
