Nice! That's an impressive OC and those are some really nice temperatures. Just make sure your system in stable with the vcore you've got it set at, and that you make sure the temperature doesn't get too hot.

Other than that, that looks super.

Cool, thanks. I just wasn't really sure if it was ok because ive never overclocked before. I might try to push it farther, but i don't want to get greedy. haha

You shouldn't be greedy; otherwise you're going to kill your computer. You wouldn't want to kill such a nice computer and OC.

I am using air cooling with the fan in my in my sig with about 8 case fans. I didnt no that it was that good of an overclock, cool.

I got it up to 3.98 ghz, but the os was unstable and then the computer wouldn't even turn on when i tryed to even it out at 4 ghz. I had to reset the bios and everything, dso im leaving it at 3.75 ghz.

i have 2 256mb sticks of kingston valueram and one wierd 512mb stick of ram that I got from CompUsa. I think that its called Centon or something.

I had to get the weird one because i had a gift cirtificate to compusa that i wasnt really going to use on anything else.
